We can blog about this all day… Going back and forth about who is White, Black, Asian, English etc..etc.. Bottom line is Latin/Hispanic/spanish people come in all shades of color! I can speak on that being that I am Panamanian, But my mother looks white and my father looks Indian. Go figure =) Oh and not to mention I have Asian panamanian cousins.

Hogan is an Irish name but I guess that is an acquired name not her real name?

Alice February 16, 2012 at 10:59 pm

Her real name is Bollea. The Hogan name is only a stage name.

Sadly yeaah.
shame for us REAL Panamanians.
but she isn’t Spanish Panamanian, cuz Hogan is not French or Italians so she needs to be English or Irish Panamanian..

Rightnow, come on.. whites have brown skin and don’t even look white.. the Jersey shore has some that don’t look white.. but they are italian and that is white. I am white, but yet I don’t look like it much, but when I talk to other race friends. they know without asking. I have not even told or shown any that I am. but who cares if she is or not; people like her for the personality not anything else.

rafael August 4, 2011 at 6:05 pm

I call cop-out on her mother’s heritage.

English surnames have been taken on by every ethnic group in the USA.

rightnow March 18, 2011 at 7:22 pm

I never would of thought she was part Panamanian… but it’s probably white Panamanian of Spanish descent or other European.
