Cameron’s paternal grandparents were of Cuban descent (with Spanish, including Asturian, ancestry); her father also had one eighth Spanish-Venezuelan ancestry. Cameron’s mother has English, Scottish, Irish, and German ancestry. Cameron has also stated that she has Native American ancestry on her mother’s side (sometimes specified as Cherokee Native American). It is not clear if this ancestry has been verified/documented. There are no Native American ancestors, Cherokee or otherwise, in Cameron’s mother’s recent and relatively recent family tree.

Cameron’s paternal grandfather was Emilio Cadiz Diaz Jr. (the son of Emilio F. “El Gato” Díaz and Joaquina “Queenie” Cabranes Cádiz). Cameron’s grandfather Emilio was born in Tampa, Florida. Cameron’s great-grandfather Emilio was a Cuban emigrant, from Havana. Joaquina was also a Cuban emigrant, and was the daughter of a man surnamed Cabranes, and of a Venezuelan emigrant, Antonia Cádiz Sánchez, who was of Spanish descent.

Cameron’s paternal grandmother was Gertrudes Lavin (the daughter of Luis Lavín García and Mercedes Duarte Alonso). Gertrudes was born in Florida. Luis was born in Cuba, to a Spanish-born father, Francisco Felipe Lavín, and a Cuban-born mother, Gertrudes García. Mercedes was also born in Cuba, also to a Spanish-born father, Manuel Duarte, and a Cuban-born mother, Mercedes Alonso.

Cameron’s maternal grandfather was William Marion Early (the son of John Winchester Early and Chloe Kendall Allen). William was born in Missouri. John was the son of William Robin Early and Emma Rozella Fusselman. Chloe was the daughter of Charles Marion Allen and Catherine Delcina/Della Babb.

Cameron’s maternal grandmother was Elizabeth Jeanette Waddingham (the daughter of Joseph Herbert Waddingham and Elizabeth Rankin Withers). Cameron’s grandmother Elizabeth was born in California. Joseph was born in Kingston, Frontenac, Ontario, Canada, the son of Joseph Waddingham, who was born in North Cave, Yorkshire, England, and of Frances Anna Kels/Kells, who was born in Templeport Parish, County Caven, Ireland. Cameron’s great-grandmother Elizabeth was born in Illinois, to an English father, Richard James Withers, and a mother from Missouri, Nancy/Nannie S. Scott.

If you are so proud of being mixed, calling you Latino or hispanic is whitewashing you. Your white heritage is what makes you Latina and hispanic. Only in USA you would be the hispanic girl. In Latin America nobody would tell you that. Because that “hispanic look” is an American invention. In Latín America, people is very diverse. Also, that look that makes people saying that you are hispanic and different to the white girl are not hispanic at all. First of all, Spaniards are hispanic, so saying that all hispanics are mixed is wrong.

Emilio Cadiz Diaz, Jr. was born in Tampa, Florida, and was the son of Emilio F. “El Gato” Díaz and Joaquina “Queenie” Cabranes Cádiz. Cameron’s great-grandfather Emilio was a Cuban emigrant, from Havana. Joaquina was also a Cuban emigrant, and was the daughter of a man surnamed Cabranes and of a Venezuelan emigrant, Antonia Cádiz Sánchez, who was of Spanish descent.

Correct Cameron’s paternal grandmother to Gertrudes Lavin, and she was born in Tampa, Florida, as well as her parents’ names to Luis Lavín García and Mercedes Duarte Alonso. The correct parents of Luis are Spanish-born Francisco Felipe Lavín and Cuban-born Gertrudes García. The correct parents of Mercedes are Spanish-born Manuel Duarte and Cuban-born Mercedes Alonso.

And, include Asturian as part of her Spanish ancestry.

I tried to edit her wikipedia page to undo the cherokee with a link to this but they said it wasn’t a reliable source… nvm

“Cameron Diaz was born on August 30, 1972 in San Diego, California. The daughter of Emilio Diaz, a second-generation Cuban-American oil company foreman, and his wife Billie, who is of Native American, Italian, and German descent”

They really need to start distinguishing Irish ancestry on ethnicelebs. I think there are a lot of people marked as having “Irish” ancestry who are actually of “Scots-Irish” descent, including Cameron Diaz. I wish the Irish in question was more discernible.

anen87 February 17, 2016 at 2:42 am

This guy i had in class in college, he’s so hot i couldn’t stand it! He’s half Peruvian half white. He said his Peruvian dad is white like him. His last name is Torres.

Devotion October 26, 2015 at 5:24 pm

Looks more like her mother’s side.

JoshG October 25, 2015 at 12:35 pm

She didn’t age well.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 2:24 pm

Neither have you.

Devotion October 26, 2015 at 5:24 pm

Weak comeback.

margot September 11, 2015 at 7:57 am

She is only of European descent…Spaniards are definitely Europeans..Hollywood celebrities need to stop saying they have Native American blood because they are always lying..They rarely have Native American origins…Most Native Americans were killed by the USA during the Native American genocide..Acting like everybody in the USA has Native American ancestry is not only a lie but also an insult towards Native Americans..Cameron is only European..

midori29 August 30, 2018 at 10:48 am

I doubt Cameron Diaz is only European descent. Every Cuban I have ever met has some non European blood either African or Indian. Even the whitest looking Cubans are mixed down the line and I’ve known plenty of native Cubans.

No it’s actually white hispanic, those are two different categories.

He’s unattractive because he’s racist. Wow. Simply disgusting.

she’s not as pretty as she used to be

cwm85 July 20, 2015 at 4:49 pm

She’s all European not Native, European mix…

qutsflyd August 28, 2015 at 7:07 pm

There’s no way you could know that. And she has cherokee ancestry as well. You don’t have to look like a native to have distant native ancestry. My cousin has native ancestry (around 6%) and he’s blonde, and paler than Cameron. If you have less than 15% of a certain ancestry, the admixture fades away and it doesn’t show in your phenotype.

Drea K June 22, 2016 at 1:58 pm

Her father is a Spaniard – European and her mother is English, Scottish, Irish, German. She’s fully European blood, but Spaniards are the original Latins that came to the Americans that’s why they’re still referred to as “Latinos” here in the west. The Latin culture originates from Europe.

midori29 August 30, 2018 at 10:50 am

@cwm85, I see other than European and I’m very good at picking out these things. Her face shape pie like is native Indian and eye shape can be Indian or African influenced in small percentages.

Capricious April 8, 2015 at 7:13 pm

Looks 100% white to me, like English or German…

Spaniard_70 June 14, 2015 at 2:48 pm

Thats because she is. Spaniards like me are white. We are European. Most Cubans like her have a lot of Spanish ancestry. I understand the confusion though. Many Americans do not know that Spanish and Portuguese are originally white. If you see me youd think I was Greek, or Italian. Most Northern Spaniards have blonde hair, and Olive Skin. In the south it is Black hair and Olive skin. All of her ancestry is white. So it makes sense for her to look 100% white.

andrew June 14, 2015 at 3:40 pm

no way most Northern Spaniards have “blond” hair, 10% at most.

shobohunter April 15, 2014 at 4:11 am

she and Dolph Lundgren :D
“Drago” belongs to same race. lol

DANIEL CARVALHANA March 31, 2014 at 12:32 am

HEAD IN SHAPED OF PUMPKIN , NOSE WIDE AND FLAT, SHORT FACE, EYES MIXED

CAMERON LOOK LIKE A Mongrel (WHITE + Mongoloid)

Euro June 29, 2014 at 10:18 pm

If Cameron Diaz is not white then you have a big white problem in the USA because she is one of the whitest American I have ever seen.Is funny how some Americans called brown people white and white people non white. Many Europeans of mixed heritage went to the USA because they were consider. You have Roma Gypsy(non white) or biracial pretending to be Italians,Irish and Dutch in the USA because they be consider white and accepted. Do not confuse race with nationality.She is a white woman. Blond hair and blue eyes are recessive genes.Those brown skinnedpeople that you(Americans)call whites are only able to produce brown children. In Europe, to be white you have to look white and produce white children. Maybe because we do not longer believe in the pureness of race and DNA are proving that.The more European looking the person is, means that the majority of your genes are Europeans.

ashash June 29, 2014 at 10:56 pm

Cameron is white, but your comments are still stupid.

Jello February 2, 2015 at 10:36 pm

She is white since her Spanish and English/Scottish/Irish Ancestry is white. European

midori29 August 30, 2018 at 10:52 am

@Daniel CORRECT, I totally agree. Cameron’s features are Mongoloid influenced. She looks like a white Eskimo Annuit Indian and her real hair color is dark brown to black. She dyes it.

sebastianvalladolid February 11, 2014 at 5:26 am

I hate how the American media and most white Americans have the wrong definition of a “Hispanic” or a “Latino” . Get yourself educated, the terms can be used interchangeably they both make reference to an ethnicity not a race! “Latino” means having ancestry related to Spain , Italy France and/or Portugal. Hispanic means having a background solely to Spain (Hispania).
Technically speaking while The USA and Canada hold a large number of “diversity” the fact is mixing among races has not happened to the extent that it happened in Latin America in the past .

Most “brown Mexicans” you see have a mix in their background , only 20% of Mexicans in Mexico are of “pure Native American blood”. 60% are Mestizos (mixed of native and European Spanish) and 20% white.
Central Americans are known to be the countries of the Americas where their pure native population no longer exists , they’re all mixed or white, like El Salvador has become officially the first Central American country to be 80% mixed (white and native) and 20% white.
South Americans have a bigger white Latino population but also a black population .
So I don’t understand how people actually think that all Latinos are “brown” or a “race” . In theory there are more whites in all Latin America added up than all of White North Americans added up. Not to forget that Spain is a white country too with some provinces having a higher density of Arabic and Jewish mix like Andalucia in the south.

Shawnee27 February 24, 2014 at 4:47 pm

I’m sorry, I’m FULL BLOODED REAL NATIVE AMERICAN Shawnee from the Piqua reservation, I know how bad you Mexicans wanna be us and all, but most Mexicans as you claimed are not mostly Native American and white, where you came from was Spain, and when you was over here Native Americans and Mexicans didn’t mate with each other. You could easily tell the difference between a Native American and A Mexican, and if your claim is true show me ACCURATE DNA results that show Mexicans are mostly native American and white. When you Mexicans try to claim OUR BLOOD we look down on you and laugh, Because people are so stupid to believe you, when a person is mixed with Native American they say Mexican and Native American because they are two different races. Stop trying to be us so you can claim America is your land.

Katz February 25, 2014 at 3:20 pm

Yes they are. Different tribes or ethnic groups? Maybe, but a border doesn’t change their ‘race’. The indigenous people of Mexico are native North Americans too.

Euro June 29, 2014 at 10:00 pm

Shawnee27: USA is not America. There is America as a continent. All indigenous people are consider Native America. Native South American or Native North Americans.
According to the latest DNA tests you are also immigrants. You arrived to America before the European race. Do not be lazy and look at that information in the Internet. It is a 2013 and 2014 information.Get yourself updated.
And you wonder why we Europeans think that Americans are dumb.

Jello February 2, 2015 at 10:38 pm

Mexicans do look Native American. Many have the dark skin and Asian eyes just like most Native Americans who are not mixed with white.

Shawnee27 February 24, 2014 at 4:51 pm

Also you just tried to make another claim, If y’all was white which your not, whites or anybody for that matter wouldn’t call you Mexicans you would be labeled as white which you are not. Please accept your heritage and stop trying to be something your not, but don’t worry most almost all Mexicans try to claim they are another race when their not.

ethnic February 24, 2014 at 11:19 pm

So if they aren’t European or native American what are they?

Gurrl February 25, 2014 at 10:59 am

Amerindian-spanish mixes mainly-aka mestizo’s. I think he meant that he doesn’t embrace Mexicans as his “brothers”

Euro June 29, 2014 at 9:54 pm

Ameridian does not exist. Is not longer used for DNA testing. Native American refers to people from the Americas. USA is a country in America(Continent). According to DNA,Native America came from South Asia.

marjanel July 31, 2018 at 7:50 pm

Most mexicans are mestizo and claimed that, there are ones that are white, why they would claim different? Would whites of USA say that they are not white because there are blacks in usa

Euro June 29, 2014 at 9:49 pm

I agree with you and I am European. World Cup Brazil :) Being to South America.

theartsnerd December 14, 2013 at 10:50 am

Cameron Diaz is also a Cherokee Native Indian.

Daisuke November 21, 2013 at 6:44 pm

Alot of Cubans are white. because Soanish people are white. She is white.

About 50% of cubans are mulattos or , Afro-cubans

sebastianvalladolid February 11, 2014 at 5:16 am

True but the other 50% is white! all the Cubans I’ve met my whole life happen to be white of Spaniard background .

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 6:58 am

Latina isn’t a race. There are white latinas like Cameron Diaz, moron

guandique_aime September 13, 2013 at 10:00 pm

Your wrong I am Latina but i look fully white because my mother is German. I am grateful not to be fully white or else i would look typical tall, skinny, no posture whatsoever. Latina are the beautiful women in earth because we’re all mix especially central & south american women. I’ve dated a Asian guy just for fun but will never do so again because it’s true there penis are really small Jesus! Of course Cameron is gorgeous because of the Spanish in her.

Alice September 14, 2013 at 9:07 am

You’re not really Asian. Most people wouldn’t put their own race down like you do. The Japanese are a very proud people and there are many beautiful Japanese women so stop trolling.

newyork1975ful July 9, 2013 at 3:18 pm

I want to specify the fact that race is determined by the amount of carbon someone has. Carbon is essential in all life forms and its wat creates dark and light pigment/melanin. Race is not determined by ones “skeletal features” (wtf?). Their is only black and white or in other words… Dominant and recessive.

As far as Cameron Diaz goes…I dunno wtf she is?!

rickyflo July 10, 2013 at 8:55 pm

she is caucasian and it is not about carbons… it is skeletal structure, skin, genetics of admixture J2, IA, so on, eye structure, social construct, European, and status. Not this prejudicism of one drop blood, and Carbon strength that makes normally a strand stable in science, not in DNA entirely!

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 7:00 am

She’s white, obviously. Hispanic isn’t a race
There are 4 races:white, black, Asian, and native American. Obviously niether of the other 3 dummy

andrew October 14, 2013 at 1:28 pm

Native Americans are still under the “Asian” (Mongoloid) box

Richard Fiorello November 22, 2013 at 8:17 am

There is actually the 5 races. Some dismiss the 5th because of the Asian genetic line but it was correctly theorized for aboriginal/ red, Caucasian, negroid, Arab, and Asian. Short, genetic history and one gene does not make an ultimatum of race. This is like saying a person can only live off a heart only not including DNA, RNA, and parts. That is why racial profiling and racial extremist are not equal nor will they. Just get over it. she is white.

andrew November 22, 2013 at 2:02 pm

there are no such things as aboriginal/ red and Arab race

andrew March 4, 2013 at 6:38 pm

to be accurate, in an interview to Vanity Fair I read she told that her distant Native American ancestry is “Blackfoot”

ann July 10, 2013 at 1:28 am

Yes. She stated at “Inside The Actors Studio” that her great-great-grandmother was Blackfoot.

follers July 10, 2013 at 2:16 am

Cameron’s maternal great-great-grandmothers were:
*Emma R. Fusselman, who is described as “white” on the U.S. Census, as are her parents – https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/M3ZQ-B8J
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MXNM-6GR
*Catherine Delcina Babb, who is described as “white” on the census, as are her parents
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MDVD-96Y
*Frances Anna “Fannie” Kells, who was born in Templeport Parish, (near Ballyconnel) County Caven, Ireland
*Nannie Scott, who is described as “white” on the U.S. Census – https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MXNN-4RF

So, no Blackfoot great-great-grandmother.

I don’t need a proof, I’m just saying that she said :D

andrew July 10, 2013 at 5:12 pm

That’s what she claimed in the interview I read: to have Blackfoot ancestry

Alice July 12, 2013 at 1:10 am

Follers – County Cavan is in the Republic of Ireland so that ancestry is just Irish.

Northern Irish are also just Irish as Donegal the most northern county is actually in the Republic of Ireland. If someone is from Northern Ireland (British part) they are still Irish.

follers July 12, 2013 at 4:19 am

If you follow the Kells line here, at least some of it leads to Scotland, and before that, to England.
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~kiwiadams/2/38222.html

The family was Methodist, as far as I can find. So I am not sure that Cameron has any Irish Catholic ancestry.

frodo November 15, 2012 at 4:11 pm

Follers, the German is there (Pennsylvania Dutch), you just need to go a little farther. No Dutch. No native.

Marc 2 November 13, 2012 at 10:02 pm

Great job, follers!

There’s no evidence, that Cameron has German and Dutch roots. I always knew that this is just disinformation planted some ignorant people, because of her exotic appearance.

Cameron has not Dutch and German roots

orrection!

Marc 2 November 13, 2012 at 10:25 pm

It looks like canard also. But she has some deep American roots, so i’m not sure. Perhaps it would be better to remove it (Native-American), untill have found more facts about it… i guess

Hope Moretti September 8, 2012 at 4:33 am

All you people saying that she doesn’t look hispanic. well lemme tell you that Latin America was created to have people from all around the world (blacks, whites, asians, native americans, indigenous, etc..) you can find people from different colors in latin america.

anakaren November 17, 2012 at 1:12 am

That’s true!! bur Asians don’t think so…

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 7:01 am

Yes there are Asians in Latin America, anakaren

Nutella83 February 10, 2013 at 10:56 pm

…. she isn’t a Latina. Her family has direct Spanish roots. Genetically, there isn’t much difference with Spaniards than any other Western European person. Believe it or not, Europeans are not cookie cutter where we all have blond hair and blue eyes. Some can tan more easily or have olive colored skin. Did you know that there are four different languages in Spain? Three are based in Latin and the Vasco language doesn’t have a known origin. My guess would be it is a Celtic based language, but that is purely speculation being that the Celtic people were in Rome and migrated Northwards. Cameron is basically “white” with a pinch of Native American blood.

truescience November 21, 2013 at 6:02 pm

She is latina.By the way this NOV.23 2013 you can watch Grammy Latino on the Spanish T.V in the US.You see people like Miguel Bose,Alejandro Sanz who are from Spain participating.Miguel Bose is going to receive an recognition for being one of the best latinos.You can found the video in you tube. Also Don Francisco (son of German Jewish parents) will receive a recognition for being one of the most influential latinos.It just show you that latinos do not care what you think.You can watch it in Univision.Also Cameron Diaz appear in the cover of latina magazine.

marjanel October 14, 2015 at 1:17 pm

If Spanish are not latinos then latín America can’t exist.Latín América is latín because Spain,Portugal and Francesa(who invented the name).Also being white doen’t mean that you are not latino.At contrary latino is a white word.Do you think that mexicans are latino because the Azteca.No,they are because their Spanish white side.

Limberg March 25, 2012 at 11:21 pm

I see non-white features on her face. People confuse about the fact that she is blonde with blue eyes. Just because a person has these characteristics doesn’t means that he is white. Minka Kelly is brunette and olive-skinned and have much more caucasian features than Cameron.

delnegro June 19, 2012 at 5:39 pm

The bitch looks all white

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 7:03 am

Alright….then list those “non white” features. Moron she is white. You just can’t accept the fact the she is white, get over it

Christian March 23, 2012 at 2:56 pm

like christina aguilera she is a person who has only a spanish name

she doesnt look like a hispanic

she looks very european,

in germany most people look like her

Bobatu March 23, 2012 at 3:41 pm

She doesn’t look “clearly European”. She has a very unusual facial structure that is not common in Europe. Aside from the blue eyes and blonde hair she looks quite Amerindian.

me March 23, 2012 at 4:10 pm

I agree,her nose is not very caucasian.

christian March 26, 2012 at 2:44 am

you american idiots did you were in europe ???

i live in europe and there are thousands of possible combinations of look

people like cameron you can find in germany as well as in britain

even with this nose

i know 3 polish women who look similar to her

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 7:08 am

Lmao she looks Amerindian? How stupid can you be ?? You just trying to unwhiten her when she is clearly white dumbass. And her nose isn’t caucasian ? Then what is it? There are many different nose shapes and types in caucasians. Stupid fucks !

truescience November 21, 2013 at 6:22 pm

White americans do not look like white europeans.You can tell the difference.Most DNA tests that are being made in US,(Michigan study made for cancer research) show most white americans(unless you a recent immigrant) have some type of mixture(black,native).Many white americans also have jewish DNA.According to studies made in Israel,jewish people have a different DNA.So blame it on her american mom.Remember that most people from the US have never travel or have left their town.

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 7:05 am

How do you look hispanic? Hispanic isn’t a friken race ! You’re stupid and uneducated

Mestizo? He’s Cuban there are no mestizos in Cuba. There either white, black, or mulatto

truescience November 21, 2013 at 6:33 pm

That is not her father.I saw a picture of Cameron Diaz family and that is not his father.Unless her mother divorce his fathet.His father is white.Anyone can get a picture of her with other people and put it on internet.I am not famous and I have several pictures with people who are old enough to be my parents.Being famous everyone will want a picture with her.That is not his dad.Also anyone can retouch a picture and make it look like.That why people never put were they got it.

Khail Jo January 10, 2012 at 7:35 pm

I’m glad that she has Cuban on her paternal side, and that she has Native American on her maternal side. She looks white, because her mother has English, German, and Dutch descent mixed with her Native American blood. But I didn’t know that she has Scotch-Irish.

There was a study done in Argentina showing alot of them were mixed with native and with african ancestry. Who did the Europeans mixed with when there came? by having sex with each other lol. I thought so no white women so native and african women were used. I look at Argentina alot of them do not look like the average white person I see in Canada. Many whites in Canada are mixed with natives I can tell because I have been around may of them and whites who are actually are white.

Also white south Africans are white majority of them aren’t white because when the deutch and german men came. No white women were around so those men mixed with the black women. So if a south african white person claimed there ancestors were in South African since the begaining that means there aren’t white put mixed race over time. When you people keeping mixing with white you get white looking people and sometimes the known white shows through in other ways. Like the white racist that was killed in South Africa if you trace his roots he has a black great great ect grandma in the closet lol. I know this information because I wanted to know and there is a study of South Africa whites that was done awhile ago.

Wow March 6, 2012 at 1:21 pm

Jane no one would dispute a black persons blackness or right to identify as such just because he had a white great great great great great aunt so why would the reverse be true? Also we have to look at different societies and cultures and what their definition of race is. What is the definition of white in Argentina as opposed to the US? Black? Native? And who is right?

Read about the white race here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_people

White skin
Main article: Human skin color
“White people are archetypically distinguished by light skin. Europeans have lighter skin (as measured by population average skin reflectance read by spectrophotometer at A685) than any other group that was measured. Southern Europeans (measures taken from Spaniards) show a skin pigmentation in parts of the body not exposed to the sun similar to that of Northern Europeans and, in some cases, even lighter.[26]”

John Popovich September 20, 2011 at 7:29 pm

That’s because Americans are so mixed up with multiculturalism; to the extent that many people of all ethnicities have lost their native culture and identity, most particularly Europeans living in diaspora in the ‘united’ states.

..trust me, there’s nothing better than getting together with all your FAMILY who have lived or can trace their lineage back to the same geographical place, they have called home for thousands of years. Who share the same blood. The same religion. The same ideals. The same history…everything.

Americans are so concerned with being politically correct and learning about every other people’s cultures, they have lost their own.

Look at Australia, 92.3% of the population are of European ancestry, compare that to around 40% of Americans who classify themselves as European. And the state censes includes Arabs, who are definitely not European, as they traded Europeans as slaves and invaded our homeland for many years.

Ron Ng September 22, 2011 at 6:41 am

What is your point? Are you against races mixing or something? That is your choice, but don’t try to tell others what to do.

Marta Paglianni September 28, 2011 at 9:23 pm

And argentina a Latino nation in south america more than 95% are white!!

AfroBoriqua September 18, 2011 at 11:45 pm

North Americans are i-g-n-o-r-a-n-t !!! Latino or Hispanic is not a race, it’s an ethnicity that was MANUFACTURED in the United States of America as a way of first categorizing the growing number of whites with Spanish surnames and later to include any race who shares a so-called common cultural identification and language. Similar to the use of the categories Asian, African, Middle-Eastern, European, Pacific Islander, etc. Outside of the USA, people don’t typically refer to themselves as Latino or Hispanic, just their place of birth, regardless of race. But it’s usage is gaining popularity, as the USA tends to be a precedent setter — for good or bad! Now, getting back to Cameron Diaz. She claims Spanish Cuban descent the same way many Mexicans claim Mexican of Spanish descent as a way of eradicating the blight that is their black or brown roots.

LOOK AT HER REAL CAREFULLY. SHE LOOKS LIKE ONE OF THE WAYAN BROTHERS IN “WHITE CHICKS” CHARACTER.

By the way, Spaniards are a mixed race people too – Arab, Afro, Celt, Romanian, etc. Most Cubans are mixed up like fruit cake. If’n and unless she can trace back many, many Spaniards from both sides of her father’s family for generations, the likelihood is a good shake of her daddy’s family tree will drop some black fruit.

You know, it’s really sad that people are always trying to whiten away any black heritage they have. Everyone should rent the movie “SKIN”. It’s based on a true story about Sandra Laing, the biological colored offspring who was born to a white Afrikaner couple during the height of apartheid in South Africa. Her life tragedy is a testament of how primitively un-evolved the human brain really is.

Marta Paglianni September 25, 2011 at 3:47 pm

Sory but Spaniards didnt mix with Arabs at all and never with AFricans. What you been drinking?

Check this out:

Cameron Diaz is mixed in my eyes she is white and native american maybe other races I have no idea. She is mixed period. Also I am Haitian I considered myself Latino period. Because people that are so stupid like to think we are not but we are. Our lanuages cream Latin and Cultures. It was a French man who used the would Latino for those who speak a Latin lanauge his name was napoleon bonaparte and he was the ruler of French colonies Haiti and Lousinia ect.

Dee September 12, 2011 at 3:30 pm

Just to clear up some confusion I have…

I get that ethnically speaking she is spanish if she has a grandparent from Spain. What I’m wondering is why “cuban” isn’t listed under one of her ethnicities if she does in fact have a cuban-american father.

Just to echo what someone said earlier…race is just a classification based on skeletal features. Nothing to do with color. People within a race can still look very different from eachother. Caucasians can be really white or really dark, for example.

He is. Cuban of Spanish descent

Mia July 19, 2011 at 12:54 am

How did everyone go from trying to figure out what cameron diaz is to trying to figure out what everyone else in the world is? Listen when Africans where brought to the U.S.A to be treated as slaves only 10% actually where brought to america. The rest where shipped to central and south america even in some parts in mexico. Some also where left in puerto rico and cuba and other islands near by. So the latin race in most parts are usually black and spainard. Mexicans are mostly eithr straight indian (like Aztec, Mayan indians) or they are indians mixed with spainard. Because spain also concourd mexico and did the unthinkable with the aztecs and myans.. Gosh no one will win this argument everyone apparently has they own opinion.

Amber Berg July 19, 2011 at 3:21 am

hey I think you just won because it sounds about right, However I do not believe Cameron Diaz is of black ancestry.

Marta Paglianni September 28, 2011 at 9:29 pm

Mia you are so wrong. THe USA did have a strong AFrican influence. Also in most part like where? Argentina has more than 30 million folks and they are all white latinos with influx of Spanish, Italian, German and other euro ancestry. NO blacks on little indian down there. Argentina outside of europe, the most european nation in the world. The USA is only like 45 % white.

Yeah okay August 4, 2011 at 1:07 pm

It is not the United States. It was a classification system made up by white men in order to opress and divide and conquer other groups. Now for some reason white latinos come to the US and blame everyone else for why they are not considered white LOL.

marjanel July 31, 2018 at 7:33 pm

That was invented in USA, because in other parts of the world Latino is not a very used word. Americans invented that of hispanic and latino as ethnicity, race and classification of people and think that is a race, when before, latino was about Romans and LATIN America was called like that because Latin Europe. That was not about oppressors.

Well Spanish is an ethnicity to people who live in SPAIN in Europe..All this shit on this site about Latina being a race just because they speak Spanish there does not make them Spanish people it is a culture HISPANIC ,Of course there is people in South American countries that have Spanish heritage but not every single person in South America is of Spanish heritage,Immigrants from many European countries went over there Polish,Frech, Italian ,Irish, Portugese,German and more.,There is White,Black Brown and Asian HISPANICS and people try to act as if it`s a race how can it be for gods sake..Its ridicilous how stupid people act,Idiots show not be allowed one this site if they do not even know the difference between RACE and ETHNICITY it is not that hard to understand,

maria November 25, 2011 at 2:03 pm

Ya and i forgot th difference between NATIONALITY aswell.

marjanel July 31, 2018 at 7:59 pm

If she is of Spanish descent, she is more latina than mixed mexicans in USA. Spanish blood is what makes most mexicans Latino. Because I doubt that indigenous people fromMexico consider themselves Latino. Not even most mexicans used, that is just used in USA.

Cameron is called classic whereas Zoe is called exotic (and she isn’t really) despite how similar they look, at least in smile and eye shape. I hate how white girls aren’t allowed to be exotic even when their features clearly are, but ethnic = always exotic even when THEIR looks are clearly exotic. -_-

“spanish are caucasian” lol, half (if not most, putting aside the haitians and bolivians) of the latinamerican people are caucasian too. just because some of them are just a little bit tanned doesn’t mean anything. being latinamerican is not a race, it’s an ethnicity , being japanese, indian, black, those are races, (and ethnicities obviously) let’s say if an english man has kids with an indian woman, the kids will look very much mixed, but if an english man has kids with a mexican, argentinian, whatever latin country you think of, the kid will not even look mixed, cause the kid will have a mix of ethnicities and NOT races. Gosh USA people are so ignorant thanks to that hollywood crap, they make all their citizens think that latinamerican people should look exactly like salma hayek, dark, curvy and with an ugly accent.

What is this grade school,you pick out then insult me,and then tell me not to reply.I usually wouldn’t do this with a girl,but how stupid are you.I might have bypass you if you hadn’t called me out.It’s painfully obvious that I’m not the only one who would disagree with that stupid junk you wrote.Also now that I’ve read it,I see why the rest of them said it was dumb.Also what are you built like a flat piece of wood,hating on Salma.Sounds to me like your just jealous,she has the body you want.Next time do yourself favor and don’t put me in the comment.Also if you don’t like what I have to say bypass it,it just that simple

Catherine W. July 8, 2011 at 11:43 pm

If she was dissing Salma then that’s a BIG NO.

But I do understand what she’s saying HISPANIC is NOT a RACE and people need to STOP feeding into these STUPID RACIST STEREOTYPES THEY HAVE BUILT.

There are Black Latinos, WHITE latinos, NATIVE Latinos, ASIAN latinos, and of course we have our MESTIZOS who are mixed with Ameri-Indian and White

You need to get better educated.

poor little girl jealous of salma,with that hot body of hers

Amber, Japanese is not a race. It is a ethnicity as well. The Japanese are Mongoloid racially.

And while there are many Latin Americans who are Caucasian, as you say, there are also many who are not. Zoe Saldana is Latin American, and I would not say she is Caucasian. I would not say George Lopez is Caucasian either. There are multiple different races in Latin America.

Catherine W. July 8, 2011 at 11:49 pm

Zoe Zaldana is actually BLACK
meaning her RACE is BLACK and her ethnicity is DOMINICAN.. get it? she’s a BLACK DOMINICAN… a BLACK LATINO

George Lopez is MESTIZO
meaning he’s of MIXED RACE: White, Black, Native & Asian
meaning his race is MESTIZO and his ethnicity is MEXICAN… so he’s a MEXICAN MESTIZO

it just proves my point…HISPANIC isn’t a RACE and you can have VERY different looks. WHITE BLACK RED ASIAN etc.

iwas April 26, 2011 at 2:46 pm

you have to be young,Please tell me and adult can’t be as dumb as you are.Oh please don’t reply back I’m begging you,I’ve already seen enough of your stupid comments

Shamshir May 21, 2011 at 1:56 am

What type of Indian ? Amer-Indian(like Cherokee or other) or Indian from India ? Because Indians from India are Caucasians.Caucasians can range from being very pale,pinkish to dark brown.Caucasians inhabit : Europe,Maghreb(North African countries like Morocco,Algeria,Tunisia,Egypt,Libya…),Middle East,West Asia(Arabs,Jews,Assyrians,Chaldeans,Kurds,Turks…),Central Asia(Afghans…) and Southern Asians(Indians,Pakistanis,Sri LankansBangladeshis).

I didn’t count the Americas because the natives of the Americas aren’t Caucasian.But now (due to migration,colnisation…) the Americas are mainly inhabited by Caucasians.

ava June 18, 2011 at 6:08 am

@shamshir
judging by your name, im guessing you’re east indian?
and you’re wrong indian people are not just caucasian, they are black and mongoloid too, indians are always looking down on black people when they have african ancestry themselves, i’ve met some indians that look east asian, and others look black and some look full european.

Marco July 14, 2011 at 4:14 pm

You are wrong, Ava. Do a little research and you’ll find that caucasian meas white almost only in US. Causasian is a wide range of ethnicities that also encompass North Africans, including Arabs, and part of the India population too.

Mercy June 18, 2011 at 6:52 am

@Shamshir

It has been shown that Caucasian just means a bone structure or phenotype.It doesn’t really mean color of skin,any color can be Caucasian.Also people of India aren’t only Caucasian,and they only just started calling the people of North Africa Caucasian in what the last 40yrs I think

Marta Paglianni September 25, 2011 at 3:53 pm

Sorry Shamshir you probably want to be white, is ok dont worry, but you are NO. Indians from India are not caucasians at all. Only folks from europe or descendants.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_people

Read it all here or just google the white race.

lili June 19, 2011 at 10:22 am

@Amber
I totally agree with you, this people need to get out of the country and travel a little to realize that we dont all look like the Hollywood depictions of latinos
Look at poor Sofia Vergara who is white latina and had to get tanned and dye her hair to get parts in Hollywood.
Travel a little people! 85 to 90% of cubans are of Spanish descent since Cuba was colonized by the Spaniards from the 15th century to the 19th so yes we are mostly of European descent

wow June 19, 2011 at 10:34 am

I’ve been studying cuba,and from what I’ve seen,it more black cuba than white.Also it was more so in the pass.Also white skin as you put it,doesn’t mean that all that you are.You need to learn more.

lili June 25, 2011 at 6:51 pm

You mean the past, you are obviously ignorant and need to educate yourself a little more, by the way just because some cubans are black that does not mean that they are not mixed, most Cubans that are dark are actually mulattoes a mix of Spanish and black african slaves… just a little history for you..
and as far as your statement that most cubans are black, I don’t know if I should acknowledge that… we are extremely mixed.

cori_o June 29, 2011 at 10:12 pm

sorry to burst your bubble but if you were or had any cubano flowing through your blood sapingo then you would know that society looks at any person having at least 1% of african blood flowing in their veins is indeed a black= african if you believe me look it up. Its called the one drop rule and as bad as that is guess who came up with this rule???! sooo….to enlighten you on history sweetie cuba is mostly mulatto but i guess that would mean that they are black? am i right? lol. when my grandfather and full afrocubana grandmother= all black born and raise in cuba,came to america from cuba he was looked at as an african american white ppl could careless about him being half spaniard and just like him my family as every other cuban that has african background has gone through the same thing themselves. which is why we are reffered to as afrocuban these days or brown people because we do have color and are african descent. we know about our slave ancestors and the torture they went through and there for know our true background. we are the rhythm and back bone of cuba you can believe that! all and all there are white cubans and black cubans but no matter how you look at it we at the end of the day we are all cuban and thats all we see, and americans should be the same way but the more things change the more they stay the same.

Catherine W. July 8, 2011 at 11:52 pm

I couldn’t agree more. Even though it seems like they are finally letting her be “herself” because she is looking whiter in the new season of Modern Family. Her natural hair color is actually blonde and I used to watch her all the time back in the 90’s when she did this traveling show with another WHITE (wow, crazy to think Hispanics are white, no? *major eye roll*) actor and they were so funny…but anyway she looked soo much better with blonde hair.

Yeah okay August 12, 2011 at 8:40 am

Still having esteem issue Catherine W. You always say “we need to get over racist stuff,” but yet you are always quick to point out who is a white latino. If Sofia considered herself white, why does she constantly call herself a Latina. She could be neutral like Gisele Bundchen and other actresses from Portuguese and Spanish speaking countries and stay mum on the issue of race. I wonder if you and Rafael are the same person sometimes. You only have a problem when it comes to black lineage. NO other lineage gets you going as much.

And so what if she has blonde hair. There are, wait for it…black people in Africa with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Sofia is hot, but by God you and I both know that there are prettier multi-racial Latinas out there with a better waist to hip ratio than her who will NEVER be given the same opportunities as her. You see them all the time in the rap videos. So boohoo to her that she has to change her hair color for roles.

Selene-The-Immortal August 12, 2011 at 3:28 pm

Latino/Hispanic has nothing to do with race. If you come from Latin America, no matter what your race is, you are Latino. There is nothing wrong with identifying by a cultural term instead of a racial term. In Latin America, they mainly identify by their natonality (Mexican, Cuban, Argentinian, Brazilian, Chilean, Puerto Rican, etc) and not by their race, which is what The United States likes for its people to identify as.

Selene-The-Immortal August 12, 2011 at 3:29 pm

And yes, there are prettier multi-racial, black, and white latinas than Sofia. She’s pretty, but there is better out there.

Catherine W. July 8, 2011 at 11:40 pm

Thank you for this VERY intelligent reply. I am surprised you have such negative ratings on it.

People are VERY ignorant and WILL ALWAYS and FOREVER think “Latin Americans/Hispanics” are a race.
Somehow their brains can’t grasp the idea that you CAN BE TANNED with BROWN HAIR and BROWN EYES and STILL BE WHITE.

Being HISPANIC IS NOT A RACE, people. Get some education!!

chicana September 20, 2011 at 11:22 am

@CATHERINE W., LOOK ARE YOU WHITE? BECUZ. YOU TALK LIKE A WHITE GIRL. POINT BLAKE IS WHITE IS WHITE. HISPANICS ARE A MIXTURE OF RACES WHICH MAKES US BEAUTIFUL. IF I WAS TO WALK DOWN THE STREET NEXT TO YOU. DO YOU THINK THAT PEOPLE WOULD LOOK AT US AS BEING RELATED? NO THEY WOULD SAY ” THERE GOES A WHITE GIRL WALKING WITH A HISPANIC GIRL” . BELIEVE ME I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO SAY, BUT GET OVER IT! I AM NOT ASHAMED OF BEING KNOWN AS A LATINO. I AM PROUD OF WHOM I AM!! WHITE PEOPLE STARTED ALL THIS, GET OVER IT PLEASE!! WE ARE HERE TO STAY AND THERES NOTHING YOU CAN DO NOR ANY WHITE PERSON DO ABOUT IT!! …

Styx October 19, 2011 at 9:09 pm

Chicana,
If a black person has the last name O’Malley they ould not be considered Irish… He would be considered black. If he was born in Ireland then yes his nationality would be Irish… but he would still be a black man. He could even have a mix of ethnicities but he would still be black and there is nothing wrong with that. Same goes for Cameron Diaz. She may have a Spanish last name and she may be a Heinz 57 of ethnicities but you cannot deny that she is white. If Cameron cannot consider herself white then no one in Scandinavia can! LOL!

marjanel July 31, 2018 at 7:46 pm

If you are so proud of being mixed, calling you Latino or hispanic is whitewashing you. Your white heritage is what makes you Latina and hispanic. Only in USA you would be the hispanic girl. In Latin America nobody would tell you that. Because that “hispanic look” is an American invention. In Latín America, people is very diverse. Also, that look that makes people saying that you are hispanic and different to the white girl are not hispanic at all. First of all, Spaniards are hispanic, so saying that all hispanics are mixed is wrong.

Marta Paglianni September 28, 2011 at 9:33 pm

George Cloony is brown, no tanned but brown, very dark eyes and dark hair. SO why is he considered white?

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 7:15 am

Spanish are from Spain, you’re comment is stupid. Nice tru on trying to whiten Latin America when most are not caucasian but mixed with native American and European

marjanel July 31, 2018 at 7:42 pm

Latin America is just a large region, many countries, half billion people. I don’t see people lumping together all countries that speak English in the Americas, why America’s want to do the same which ones that speak Latin derivated languages? , it is nonsense. I don’t see people saying,all Anglophones are white, black, etc

Midnight August 26, 2011 at 4:21 pm

E October 24, 2010 at 10:52 am

poo October 14, 2010 at 1:14 pm

bunch of idiots on here get edumacated sheesh

poo October 14, 2010 at 1:12 pm

she WHITE retards seriously ya’ll crazy

liz November 1, 2010 at 9:24 pm

just because a person looks a certain way does not mean they might not have ancestral lineage that opposes their looks, if she’s just white then why is her last name Diaz, dumbass?

shelly November 16, 2010 at 12:11 am

Because Diaz is a Spanish name and Spanish people are Caucasian.

Liz November 16, 2010 at 1:18 pm

yeah, only she’s not spanish perse, she’s part Cuban.

Michelle November 17, 2010 at 3:09 pm

Liz- Cuban, but originally Spain! Spaniards are caucasion.

marjanel July 31, 2018 at 7:25 pm

Diaz is a Spanish last name as Smith is an English one

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 7:21 am

Liz are fucking retarded? Ever heard of the EUROPEAN, WHITE country of Spain?? Yeah they’re white dumbass

marjanel July 31, 2018 at 7:36 pm

That is like saying that some América is not white because his last name is Smith. Diaz is an European last name as Smith is. Só a white boy whose last name is Smith is not white because his last name is Smith like Will Smith that is black.Nonsense

marjanel July 31, 2018 at 7:38 pm

According to your logic

Katie September 20, 2010 at 9:53 pm

She strikes me as kind of polish ,maybe her german ancestors had some roots there.If you minus her pigment/eye color though and gave her brown eyes she looks half native american.

Reminds me of Helena christiansen who is half pervian.

Antonio September 22, 2010 at 4:37 am

She strikes me as Spanish, English, German, Scots-Irish and Native-American.

yea... July 11, 2010 at 5:25 pm

hell ya shes latina , the name “Diaz” is a spanish last name. it means “days”

henar June 26, 2011 at 2:05 pm

It doesn’t, díaS means “days”, but Díaz is a totally different word (actually, it is indeed a spanish surmame, from castille)

Jeanna June 27, 2010 at 3:24 pm

She’s very unique looking and I always thought she looked Native American….something about her face and cheekbones. What pisses me off is that the media always treats her like she’s some ultra white All-American and she’s not!!

ethnic June 27, 2010 at 7:44 pm

I agree Jeanna, the media always tries to fit celebs into a certain role according to their appearance.

EddieHaskell July 3, 2010 at 12:21 pm

How do you know she’s not? The media portrays her as Native American. She might be part Cherokee, she might be part Blackfoot, or she might be none of the above. Her Father might be descended from white Cuban Spaniards. That could make her ultra white All-American. You never know. Ever wonder why she has blue eyes?

Jeanna September 14, 2010 at 2:13 pm

The media has never mentioned it….ever. By ‘white All-American’, I meant of pure European descent. Blue eyes can be a 25% recessive trait. When have you ever seen the media talk about her heritage?

EddieHaskell September 20, 2010 at 3:07 pm

Spanish, English, Irish, German seems to fit.

Jeanna September 21, 2010 at 7:12 pm

@Eddie I’ve never seen it mentioned in magazines, newspapers, etc., and until about a month ago I used to read about celebrities obsessively. Where did you hear her ancestry mentioned?

Katie September 20, 2010 at 10:17 pm

This is how blue eyes works – you need to have the alelles GG,

AA In Europeans, 85% chance of brown eyes; 14% chance of green eyes; 1% chance of blue eyes.

AG In Europeans, 56% chance of brown eyes; 37% chance of green eyes; 7% chance of blue eyes.

GG In Europeans, 72% chance of blue eyes; 27% chance of green eyes; 1% chance of brown eye

I have the alelle AG.
This is why when I compare my genome with 15 different users this morning to see what our kids would look like funnily an african american guy gives me the highest chance of a blue eyed kid! why>? because he has the GG alelle probably from some wayback white ancestor and none of the others did.

He doesn’t have blue eyes probably because one of his parents ‘is AA ,but it’s still sitting there in him.
If He procreates with an AG like me or a GG the kid will almost certainly be blue eyed.

Same with pigment genes – I have one allele/snp that denotes mixed colouring, and another one that denotes pale skin and black hair.Which is true my colouring is not tanned nor paleish pink – but some ashy white color inbetween,and I also have jet black hair.

Katie September 20, 2010 at 10:20 pm

The tool i used is called an inheritance calculator btw from 23andme.

Adriana September 22, 2010 at 8:02 am

If he has GG that means he probably blue eyes, ‘black’ people can have blue eyes too, especially of mixed heritage. If one of his parents is AA, that doesn’t mean he ‘probably doesn’t have blue eyes’. Since AA is a general term for african, and some other mixes. Lot’s of AA’s have 10-30% European ancestry. Even if both his parents are AA, there is a chance he could have blue eyes, especially considering he has GG, like you side yourself, just 1% he has brown eyes so. Where I lived there were many AA’s and there were enough AA’s with green eyes, some with blue(rarer).

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 7:23 am

She is white, get over it and ever seen a real native American? Probably not and you’re stupid

izzy June 24, 2010 at 7:03 pm

BADBOY.INC December 6, 2009 at 8:35 pm

CAMERON IS CUBAN?

kira November 27, 2009 at 12:01 pm

interseting mix!

camycousin July 4, 2009 at 12:48 pm

Oral and written family histories. U.S. census 1790-1930. Vital records.

ethnic June 26, 2009 at 4:12 pm

thats some interesting info. what kind of source do you have about her?

camycousin June 26, 2009 at 4:27 am

I do but nothing you can click on. Her ‘Early’ family ancestors came to America in the early 1800’s. The German ancestors came here in the early-mid 1700’s and fought in the Revolutionary War.

ethnic June 25, 2009 at 2:16 am

Hey camycousin, thanks for the comment. do you have a source for that info?

camycousin June 25, 2009 at 12:10 am

Cameron’s ‘Early’ family ancestors are Scot-Irish from Northern Ireland.

mzpreciousz April 8, 2009 at 4:55 am

I do believe she has English ancestry in her because her mom’s maiden last name is English I believe (nee Early). Also on wikipedia it says so and wikipedia has like 3-4 references

Jeanna September 21, 2010 at 7:15 pm

Spanish, Irish, English, and German are all European races (Spanish not so much, but there is still a possibility that her Spanish ancestry was the very light caucasian kind). So you’re saying the source called her European, which does not do her Native American ancestry justice.

fuzzybear September 21, 2010 at 10:51 pm

To Katie

What is this 23and me you keep talking about?

Adriana September 22, 2010 at 7:59 am

23and me is a company that does dna tests (www.23andme.com); you can get one concerning your ancestry, one concerning your health, or a combo. It gives you details as in how much % of this or that you are, and what your haplo (somethings) are, y-dna and mtdna, it gives you extensive details I think.

It’s supposedly the best. I’m going to order one next month! =)

Adriana September 23, 2010 at 12:09 am

To Fuzzybear; I’ve been good but law school is a pain, it’s not that hard, but it’s a LOT, it’s very time consuming. So I haven’t been on that much. I’ve been stalling a little to be honest, but it’s my third week and I can’t afford that anymore xD.

How have you been? And what do you think of 23andme?

fuzzybear September 22, 2010 at 10:55 pm

To Adrianna

Hey 1% Thank you,but I had already found it myself,I was just being lazy.You been quiet for a while,how you been?

fuzzybear September 23, 2010 at 12:30 am

To Adrianna

I’m okay I guess,and that 23andme is expensive.It’s my mother who wants to do it,because her father side of the family she knows nothing about.Also I’m curious myself,I didn’t know I had so many white grandpeople.Out of the last 16,9 were white,and out of the other 7 not one was full black(4 creole,2 mulatto/creole,1 Afro-latino)

fuzzybear September 23, 2010 at 12:32 am

To Adriana

Oh when you get your law degree,we can get together and stick it to the man,right SISTA

Katie September 22, 2010 at 7:17 pm

I meant AA alelle not AA [african american] and ive talked to him he has hazel eyes.

You have to get a GG from one parent, and either another GG or a AG from the other to have Blue eyes.

Katie September 22, 2010 at 7:19 pm

both of his parents are african american and he looks typically african american.

Adriana September 23, 2010 at 12:07 am

Oh I understand the basics of biology :-p sorry I thought you meant African American. Yes then it makes sense, I’m sorry for the misunderstanding.

Anonymous April 24, 2011 at 12:31 am

Her ethnicity is not that different from other white Americans. The only thing I see different is Spanish, which is still European. They treat her like a ‘ultra white American’ as you say because she is one. I also find it funny that her Native American ancestry came from her white American mother and not her Cuban father.

Yeah okay August 16, 2011 at 9:49 am

I hear you. I was responding to Catherine W who insists that Sofia Vergara must be fully white because she has blonde hair (when studies in Colombia has showed that even the whitest of Colombians have African Ancestry). I am only saying that there is extensive mixing in Latin America, that is why they only mention where they are from and not race necessarily. That is why you have people of all different shades/races dating eachother in Latin America (especially in Brazil and Puerto Rico- they think nothing of it) compared to America.

Marta Paglianni September 25, 2011 at 3:57 pm

What studies are you talking about? Do you have proof of that? Many Colombians are just White, and blacks and mix. And Argentina as a nation is more European than the USA!!

Styx October 19, 2011 at 9:12 pm

All people have African ancestry if you go back far enough. Africa was the cradle of humanity for Christ sakes.
