Lol funny how people try to make everyone at least part black when its clear they aren’t. I’m all for the truth. Truth is I’m triracial. Black, white and native mix. But if someone aren’t, then accept it. This woman and her father look clearly white. Many Spanish people, pure whites live in Cuban or are from cuban. Look at Marc Rubio and Ted Cruz.

Marco Rubio may or may not be of fully Spanish descent, but he’s always looked fairly indigenous to me.

He looks like a mix of Jeremy Jordan and Adam Beach.

andrew November 10, 2015 at 3:43 pm

well, genetically he could have some native ancestry (his parents look Europeans though), btw my standard of indigenous is someone like Evo Morales.

follers November 10, 2015 at 3:52 pm

I’m not saying he’s 100% indigenous, but he looks like he could be Adam Beach’s son.

cwm85 November 10, 2015 at 8:15 pm

Rubio looks Spanish. Come on he doesn’t look mestizo at all. Lol

@ follers

do you really judge nationalities by the appareance of 4 actors?

marjanel December 1, 2015 at 7:29 pm

Yeah because all central and South Americans look the same.Especially Argentinians and Neymar and Giselle Bundcen with guatemalans

She is basic as fuck. I guess Disney is into basic bitches.
Miley was the only pretty one, but she’s weird af now.

hesh123 August 9, 2015 at 5:56 pm

Yeah she’s white

sparkles180 August 9, 2015 at 3:52 pm

She’s white hispanic, not white. Even white hispanics have some amerindian in them.

cwm85 August 9, 2015 at 4:35 pm

Do you know what white Hispanic is? It means someone who is Spanish without mixture. Pure Spanish descent from Europe. To say she is not white Hispanic is ridiculous. She looks Caucasian, meaning white without mixture. No one looking at her would think she is mestizo from central anerica of Mexico. White Hispanic. Means Caucasian.

@Sparkles180: Wow please educate yourself before spewing ignorance.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 3:21 pm

If white hispanics are white then so are syrians, also chinese people, lets include africans too. HECK everyone is white! You know white hispanics are separated from white on the census…because unless they’re spanish, they aren’t white.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 3:43 pm

Syrians are Caucasians not Chinese. They are Asians and part of the Mongolian race.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 3:45 pm

White Hispanics are Spanish you idiot! Their ancestry is from Spain that’s all Hispanic means. Orgin of Spain.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 3:47 pm

cwm85: You don’t know satire do ya?

marjanel November 7, 2015 at 8:49 am

Since when Americans census decides who is white or not.That American goverment decide to create a category like hispanic it doesn’t mean that it is a race or that some Hispanic are not white.May be Latín American countries must do the same create a category call Anglophone,then all people of English-Speaking countries are of this category.Pocahontas is Anglophone,Will Smith is Anglophone and Brad Pitt is too.Then following sparkles’s logic Brad Pitt would be a white Anglo but not white.Also, white hispanic has not necesaryly be of amerindian descent.Being Bella thorne from Cuba,there are more posibilities of her having black blood than Amerindian. Also many of white Americans are not 100% white but nobody doubt of them being white.

marjanel December 1, 2015 at 7:34 pm

Not all white hispanics are only spanish.There have been migration in Spanish-speakng countries from other countries like USA

abbracci April 3, 2015 at 9:19 am

Bella Thorne doesn’t look Latina at all. There’s definitely no Native American or mestizo in her.

Jello April 29, 2015 at 4:38 pm

Latinos can be of European Ancestry or mixed with African and European, as well as Mestizo in some Spanish speaking countries. Cubans are African and European Mixture or one or the other, not mestizo. Caribbeans usually won’t have a huge Native American mixture in their ethnicity.

WestIndiangrl May 10, 2015 at 3:55 pm

i am caribbean our Native people are not exactly “native american” they are Amerindian & YEs some of us Do have huge mixture of amerindian depending on the islands

cwm85 August 9, 2015 at 4:37 pm

That’s not true. Some people from cuban are all Spanish descent. Like Ted cruz father and Marc Rubio’s parents.

thomas1987 April 30, 2015 at 3:20 am

You can’t look” latina”.
It’s not a dam race.
She is a white Latina
(Cuban side probably Spaniard Or Italian)

sparkles180 August 9, 2015 at 3:47 pm

She does have mestizo, you can see it in her brother. Her family looks pretty different. Shes not white but she looks white.

qutsflyd September 23, 2015 at 7:19 pm

She IS white!. What’s your deal with “purity”? If she had around 1/16 or less native heritage you could never see it in her appeareance.
If this girl is not white then all of the Americas, and most Europe has absolutely no white people at all.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 3:51 pm

qutsflyed what your deal calling everyone white? A white person wouldn’t have mestizo looking siblings from the same parents. Also anyone that benefits from affirmative action is not white, that’s solely for non-white people.

qutsflyd September 23, 2015 at 7:22 pm

Latinos can be white too, you know…
South Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay….etc, etc
Many white latinos and north americans have distant native heritage, but it doesn’t show in their appeareance.
I mean, what’s the deal with Cameron Diaz and Chuck Norris, then?

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 3:52 pm
marjanel December 1, 2015 at 7:36 pm

Sorry but people that look mestizo or have native in them are who less latino are.Calling them latino or the sterotype of latino is whitewashing them, latino is a white word.And for me she looks normal, There are alot of people that look like here in Latín America

Capricious April 3, 2015 at 4:56 am

Looks like a typical Italian from Venice.

Dogg March 17, 2015 at 5:53 am

White Cuban.

Mafia888 March 10, 2015 at 5:49 am

Why do some Cubans look so white?

thomas1987 March 11, 2015 at 1:26 am

@Mafia888
Hispanic,Latino ect are not races
Anyone can be Hispanic
Bella Thorne is white

jokin March 12, 2015 at 8:57 am

Are you serious?? Cuba is just like any other american country, where you can find native, White, black, mulatto or mixed people. Would you ever wonder why do some U.s americans looks so White? NO you would NOT, so why do make that really ridiculous question?? For your information, if you go to Wikipedia, it says that 65% in cuba are White, 24% mulatto and 10% black.

scott August 2, 2014 at 5:37 pm

She takes after her Irish side

mony July 5, 2015 at 1:57 pm

She doesn’t look irish at all. Her hair are dyed

mony July 5, 2015 at 1:58 pm
ShawntheGod July 27, 2014 at 4:00 am

White Cuban daddy like William Levy.

person July 23, 2014 at 5:20 pm

Princess June 8, 2014 at 11:32 pm

Her nose looks Indian (Asian Indian).

randomlatinagirl May 31, 2014 at 6:26 pm

I don’t understand how you can forget how to speak Spanish

WTF June 19, 2014 at 7:42 pm

It’s possible, dumbass!!!! If you don’t keep up with it, you will forget it eventually. Especially if you haven’t spoken a language since you were a kid. She just said in that quote above that she stopped speaking Spanish. Common sense, if you stop doing something, you’re eventually going to stop being skilled in that particular activity/profession/whateverthefk! Got it?!

CORRECTION

Bella Thorne is not Irish descent. She is just Italian and Cuban descent.

If you got the information from Wikipedia is wrong.

follers November 27, 2013 at 9:29 am

Ok, but in you tube she also answer the question.Her answer is Italian and Cuban heritage.

jokin March 4, 2015 at 10:36 am

Cuban descent’? THIS SAYS NOTHING ABOUT RACE!!! Cuban can be native american, african black, mulatto, mixed or White (european spaniard as general rule). My guess is that she has White cuban ancestry. This should be specified here.

justme November 27, 2013 at 4:56 am

CORRECTION

Bella Thorne in her own words:
Italian
Cuban
Not Irish

In an interview made my Latina Magazine:

or look for Bella Thorne Latina Interview

In her own official page:

She put photos in that page(personal) and writes.

If you got the information in Wikipedia then is 90% wrong.You know anyone can edit Wikipedia and put fake references.Always be careful with Wikipedia.
