    Very surprising that she only has a drop of Italian blood in her and the rest is all northern European. Up till now I always assumed she was a latina.

      Latin is not a race
      it just means you speak the language’s of love from southern europe.
      has nothing to do with race.
      latin in south america is diffrent because there are so many non-whites there. most are Natives Americans
      a true Latin person is a white European like italians, spanish, french ect.
      and most of Europe is brunette with brown eyes btw

        Most south Americans are not native.It is very interesting that you talk about South Americans when most people in USA don’t know many of them or have se en INE in their lives because most imigrants from Latín América in USA ate from México,Central America and Caribbean not many South America.Also not all south Americans countries are latin, and indigenous people in South América don’t call themselves latino.
