George Lopez

by ethnic on April 27, 2009

Place of Birth: Mission Hills, Los Angeles, California, United States

Date of Birth: April 23, 1961

Ethnicity: Mestizo Mexican

George Lopez is an American comedian, actor, and television personality. He was the host of the show Lopez Tonight from 2009 to 2011.

His father was a Mexican emigrant, from Nayarit. His mother was born in Los Angeles, of Mexican descent. George has a daughter with his former wife, Ann Serrano.

George’s paternal grandparents were Francisco Lopez and Josefa.

George’s maternal grandfather was John Hernandez (the son of Pedro Hernandez and Raphaela Vargas). John was born in California, to parents from Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico.

George’s maternal grandmother was Benita N. Torres (the daughter of Alfonso Torres and Manulea Mares). Benita was born in California. Manuela was born in Santiago Apostol, Silao, Guanajuato, Mexico, the daughter of Lucio Mares and Maria Guadalupe Héras.

A DNA test whose results were displayed on the show Lopez Tonight (2009) stated that George’s genetic ancestry is:

*55% European
*32% Native American
*9% East Asian
*4% Sub-Saharan African

The exact accuracy of the DNA tests on Lopez Tonight has been questioned by genealogist Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak.

He looks Black and Native Mexican.
His DNA BS he had on the show is fake. He supposedly got the Kardashians to test theirs and it came out 100% Armenian for all of them. Khloe is fully not Armenian while the others are only half since their mom is Dutch, English and Scottish with no Armenian. It was a fake test. His DNA is mostly Black and probably indigenous Mexican.

Rip August 4, 2017 at 5:25 am

He most likely has more Native (and possibly Black) ancestry than those genetic results suggest because Alba’s test on the Lopez show suggested she had less Native American ancestry than a later more extensive test revealed. Lopez honestly has darker skin and more “ethnic” features than even many Amerindian Mexicans.

fuzzybear44 August 4, 2017 at 3:25 pm

that test also stated Jessica had no African, but she does

Morrigan Ni Boii April 16, 2017 at 1:41 am

He’s half Spanish (or Portugal) and half Mexican Indian with mongoloid type.

bearboy August 11, 2016 at 4:53 pm

Latino’s are on average 18% Native American, 65.1% European, and 6.2% African ancestry.

Duke February 14, 2016 at 1:58 pm

DNA tests revealed on TV for celebrities are usually distorted to engender controversy.

George Lopez looks mestizo with a dark pigmentation. He would look more Asian in terms of his facial features if he was predominately American Indian.

gamer20 November 22, 2015 at 8:59 am

He looks Mexican

Racial Realist October 4, 2015 at 8:50 pm

Looks just like his test says to me.

ilovecherlloyd July 9, 2015 at 6:56 am

He’s cute

Bow Down Bitches July 26, 2015 at 8:07 pm

lmaoooooooooo is this a joke?

Boog May 21, 2015 at 8:54 am

It’s no such thing as 55% of European ethnicity- Europe, it’s not country.. I’m sure it was American from US post it, anyone who has simple education such as HS would know this basic things

theropod April 1, 2015 at 5:41 am

Looks 100% native Mexican to me.

Check7t August 13, 2014 at 8:16 pm

Look like typical mestizo.

Your Mom August 9, 2014 at 8:14 pm

I Don’t Believe For A Second He’s 55% Native American. He Looks Straight Up Aztec!

Jordan April 1, 2015 at 5:38 am

It says that he’s only 32% Native American.

anen87 July 16, 2014 at 5:05 pm

32% Native American + 9% East Asian = 41% mongoloid which IS a significant amount and certainly would show in your looks. I’ve seen U.S. Native Americans score the same or even less than that. Most mestizos come out looking “indio” very few come out looking “gueros” or else mexicans wouldn’t have the stereotype of being brown. The Criollos knew this that’s why they implemented the Cast system. You have to have 60%+ euro to consider someone “predominately european” heritage cause only then do you see an effect in their looks, Kuno Becker and Ximena Navarrete are examples of Mexicans of predominately european heritage. G-LO is simply mestizo nothing more

Princess June 8, 2014 at 3:46 pm

He’s an African American.

Oliver Hill June 28, 2014 at 10:24 am

no way. you can’t be that stupid.

westovermarching October 10, 2014 at 2:06 am

It’s a joke. Watch the youtube clip

Oliver Hill June 28, 2014 at 10:24 am

there is no way! no way your that stupid…

Katz March 10, 2014 at 11:07 pm

55% European..? And only 34% Native? O.o

ihatemostpeople March 11, 2014 at 1:20 am

LOL I said the same thing. He looks predominately Native.

scott March 11, 2014 at 10:50 am

he looks more like 60% native 20% european, this makes me think the “DNA tests” on his show aren’t legit

tomcabrerajr May 16, 2014 at 12:22 pm

You can’t figure out people’s genotype (genetic makeup) entirely through physical attributes. The genetic information could be exactly what he says, but all we see is his phenotype (observed traits that out of the multitude of combinations possible are expressed). That is how two white people (who may have had sub-african ancestry) could possibly have a black child (it’s VERY rare but has happened). The child might look black, but the child’s DNA test might show that it is predominantly European. This is an extreme example, but it gets the idea across.

lisa78419 June 8, 2014 at 1:58 pm

actually, there is a new way to find out only through genomic analysis. I have seen how they do it. read about it.

lisa78419 June 8, 2014 at 1:59 pm

look it up and you can find out all about it

tomcabrerajr July 3, 2014 at 11:59 pm

Genomics looks at DNA and its sequencing and such (in very simple terms), and that is not observable to the eye. So, I’m not entirely sure why you would premise your statement with “actually” because you’re basically supporting what I wrote. You still need to look at someone’s DNA rather than their overall physical appearance to be accurate.

xoxo August 27, 2015 at 1:38 am

Ikr? He looks 90% NA, the rest Spanish.

ihatemostpeople March 2, 2014 at 12:33 am

He’s ugly af. There are some hot ass Mexican men, but he is definitely not one of them!! LMFAOOOOO!!!

Tommy January 18, 2014 at 3:05 pm

Looks Indian

Dan November 27, 2013 at 8:48 pm

I don’t care what ethnicity this guy is. He’s a racist p.o.s.

ethnic November 27, 2013 at 8:58 pm


Ryan January 18, 2013 at 5:17 am

Surprised on the small amount of Native and Black.
You’re telling me he is mostly European? He is Dark.

reg19888888 December 21, 2012 at 7:55 pm

cinnamongirlz bit$$ get your facts straight african is the smallest porcentage in mexico, have you ever read mexico genome project,the average mexican blood is 50 to 70% indian 40 to 30% white and 3 to 10% african,if african was higher than european we will look like mulatos or zambos wich means half black and most of us look certainly native, my family tree is closer to mayans from my mom side and my paternal grandfather is blue eyed,im proudly a mixed person with mexican identity so i dont feel black white or indian i dont want to choose sides im MEXICAN PERIOD you just hate euros so much

azuly24 August 9, 2012 at 11:22 pm

I am very proud to be Mexican and Mestiza. I been researching my genealogy and I find that as Mestiza as I look (morena clara) I have more Spanish blood than Indian blood and I think that goes for most Mexicans. My mother’s family are criollos (White Mexicans) from Mexico city as far back as I can trace them at around the 1700s and my father’s family are mestizos from Guanajuato. I am not ashamed of my Spanish or Indian blood. I think people say that the morenitos are discriminated against, but I know my mom has been somewhat discriminated in Mexico city by others because she was white with blondish hair as a child and yet her family is just as Mexican as any other. Now living in the US, some people are surprised that my mother is Mexican by the way she looks. You can watch the video I made about my Mexican genealogy here:

hassan November 16, 2013 at 9:46 pm

actually more mexicans have native american blood than european blood….mexico is 36% native american, at least 50% mixed (native and european) and the rest european…clearly native american blood dominates in mexico

sashafierce564 July 13, 2012 at 11:32 pm

On george lopez he only claim to be mexican

fuzzybear44 July 24, 2012 at 2:55 am

To sasha

Well that’s what a mexican was,or is.All the things his mix with,is what jose vasconcelos wanted in his La raza cósmica (The Cosmic Race)

fuzzybear44 July 24, 2012 at 10:05 pm

To whomever gave the thumb down,look the stuff up.You’ll see all I did was give a fact.I’m not saying all mexicans are like this,but before the great flood of white Europeans came(in the last 80yrs),there were a good amount who were and still are.

Jarocho4338 May 21, 2012 at 11:39 pm

Not only am I a non white Mexican, I am also a student of colonial Mexico history. History reminds me of all the terrible things the Spanish did to dark people of Mexico. After killing millions of Indigenous with their smallpox they then imported close to 500,000 W. African slaves to Mex. With 500 years of miscegenation and oppression which created the modern Mexican. Anyone who can trace their roots back to colonial Mexico more than likely has all 3 colonial bloods. There may be exceptions but I’d say they, the european Mexican (aka white Mexican descends from the peninsulares that ran north after losing to General Vicente Guerrero, N. Americas first black president, 1821) The spanish and their 100 european descendentss always remind me of all the pain they caused my ancestors and all the pain they continue to bring upon modern day Mexicans of color. I also think of our counterparts of S. America, Central America and the islands of El Caribe. I remember as a child hearing how the light haired, white Mex. kids were called the pretty kids while we, dark kids were ugly Negritos, prietitos. I know we all have spanish blood but I’ve always thought of any spanish blood of mine to be as the abusive parent. I don’t have any pride for the people who caused so much pain and continue to cause pain to all dark Mexicans with their racial remarks that they claim are terms of endearment. When I hear one of the white Mexicans call a dark Mexican Negro or prieto it pisses me off because I know they say that to make themselves feel superior. BASTA YA! Another european people of Mex. who I have no love for are the germans that immigrated to Mex. during the 1860‘s. They can’t trace their roots to colonial Mex. so I feel they have nothing coming. These are the ones called hueros aka whiteboys. You know them when you see them, they have light hair, red hair, blonde hair and pale white skin or sunburned red skin….

Alice April 9, 2012 at 10:12 pm

I’m Mexican and proud. We call ourselves “Mexicans” because we are mixed with so many blood from other countries, immigrant from Asian, African, European, and some Native Indians from America, and those Native Indigenous in Mexico. Yet that doesn’t mean we have all of those traits. People shouldn’t assume that because there was African slaves in Mexico doesn’t mean that ALL Mexicans have African blood, or all Mexicans have Asian as well. Tho the majority of Mexico is mixed w/ Amerindian blood doesn’t mean that all Mexican have dark skin, they have a large color range that goes from light white skin to dark African skin. Read a book people please. I’m not surprise that ignorance still exist, but I am that still so many people just assume who Mexicans really are.

littleman April 9, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Majority of mexicans are just natives. Their is mestizo but very small percentage. Their is also white but that is even more small percentage. And their is no African anccestry dark mexicans are just dark indios because they decent from olmecs and mayans that were dark indians.

Jocelyn June 26, 2012 at 6:21 pm

This is Alice, but I had to change my account name. I agree on one thing ONLY. Most of Mexicans are the Native Indigeous (sp?) and some Natives are not mixed with the European blood, but most are. Mexico has as much diversity as America, there are MANY Asians, Africans, and European, the problem is that everybody doesn’t know that, and assume Mexicans are just dark and native because of media, and Hollywood movies (which tells you nothing). Like Sofia Vergara, who is Columbian with natural light skin and blonde hair, but what did she have to do to get into showbiz? Become the stereotypical Latina women, that includes dying her hair black and tanning her skin. Actually, African blood in Mexicans is the smallest of all ethnicity,but I know many Mexicans who have African blood; White European and Indigenous is the largest. Because the skin color of the indigenous is as you say, “dark”, that doesn’t mean there is no African blood. Now, skin color, your only evidence is that Mexicans are dark because of native blood. Wrong, there are Mexicans who have natural dark skin, that may result from both Indigenous AND African. WHAT ELSE? Mexico is very hot, so Mexicans get their skin tanned, especially those with light skin. That’s where your ignorance shows. From my dad side of the family, most of the family members are light-skin, with possibly little Asian blood.

cinnamongirlz June 28, 2012 at 7:01 am

Only the most recent blood may have none of that beautiful African heritage. But read what Jarocho4338 has said and see for yourself what George Lopez found out. Old and original, colonial Mexican ancestry flaunts African DNA and plenty Chinese too.

Jocelyn July 1, 2012 at 12:11 pm

I agree with you cinnamongirlz, I don’t know why your comment is getting negatives. African heritage is beautiful. The most recent blood doesn’t have much African blood, now the most recent bloods are coming from other European countries like France, Germany, and Poland, and Asian countries as well mostly from China, Japan, and Vietnam. I also absolutely agree with Jarocho4338.

John November 27, 2013 at 8:59 pm

I agree. I’m not Mexican, but if anyone really wants to find out where they can trace their roots, they really need to get a DNA test. Up until recently, everyone just assumed Mexicans were just “Mexicans”, but it’s far more complicated than that. Mexico really is a nationality, not an ethnicity, although many of the people possess the same lineage. There was an African element that was introduced from slavery in some of the people (not all), the Amerindian/Mestizo element, the Spanish/European element, the Asian element, and there’s also immigrants from other European countries that formed settlements in Mexico, as well. There’s a lot of German immigrants in Mexico, as well as, Brazil. Most Mexicans possess the combination of Amerindian/Mestizo, Spanish, and Asian. The only variable is the amount of each. For instance, a Mexican that possesses 75% Spanish blood and 25% Amerindian blood will look VERY different form a person who possesses the reverse percentage. That’s why some Mexicans looks so dark (majority Amerindian), and some look so light (majority Spanish and/or Asian). judging from George’s looks, I would say this man is at least 90% Amerindian/Mestizo, if not all. His skin tone and facial features look extremely Native American.

Takemeflying March 21, 2012 at 8:28 am

It’s annoying when blacks say Mexicans are blacks ewww hell no… I’m Mexican and do not look black at all I’m light skinned with light brown hair And my family also looks like that we look more European then anything specially my younger sister she looks white… Blacks are just loud and rude!!!

jo March 24, 2012 at 10:01 am

You are mestizo. Live with it and stop pretending you’re “European” ’cause you ain’t. You’re a brown mestizo latina.

Lol April 8, 2012 at 10:29 pm

It didn’t seem like that person was claiming she was European she was just announcing that Mexicans don’t look black which I agree im very light Mexican my self and don’t look nothing black :)

Jarocho4338 May 20, 2012 at 1:31 pm

this is for Lol: You are speaking of photypeappearance) which has very little to do with a persons makeup. Everyone reeives one alle from each parent. Ex. One parent black, one white. Child receices at birth, one alle from each and depending on which alle is the dominant one is what deyermines the childs phennotype aka appearance. If the white parent donates the dominant alle then this child will have an appearance of a white person though the child is of both bloods. Going back to the Mexican phenomena of colonial times. Mexico’s northern and central areas were studied by Stanford University in the year 2000 and dna tests confirm that 75% of northern and central Mexican population have an African admixture ranging from 3%-12% with the remaining % being of either Indigenous or european dna. The reaaon for northern/central Mex. having a smaller % of African dna is once Mex. won independence the spanish ran north and settled until they were able to murder President Vicente Guerrero, Mexico’s Afro Meztizo who abolished slavery in 1821. After murdering Guerrero, idu

Jarocho4338 May 20, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Cont. from jarocho4338; After the spanish murdered our president who was of all three bloods, as most of us are that can trace back to colonial days, they, the Spanish invited germans to help “whiten” Mex. During the 1860s 20,000 german immigrants entered ‘Mex. but those 20,000 could not wipe out our African root, the third root. Today, those so called white Mexicans are descendents of those german immigrants and I personally have nothing in common with them. Just because these white Mexicans aka “hueros” were born there and speak spanish does not mean they represent us beautiful brown, dark brown almost black skinned Mexicans. All those who are not of the Mexican nationality do not think that those light-white skinned people who were born in Mex. or have that german immigrant blood, you know who they are because when they tl you that they’re Mexican you think to yourself, they don’t look like the ones I know. Just as the white europeans on Mexican television. Their television appearance makes many of us brown, dark brown almost black Mexicans feel like were not good enough and I say to all my dark skinned brothers and sisters, dont allow those european types to contrl your feelings. They controlled our ancestors with slavery. They robbed our land and they brought our black brothers and sisters to Mexico to labor for them . Five hundred years of oppression and they, the ones you call hueros

Chika90 April 8, 2012 at 10:36 pm

Um but obviously she has more European blood in her if she’s light… So she isn’t pretending she has more European then anything…if you are very light and you are Mexican you have more European blood then mestizo… And why do u sound so angry at Mexicans.?!?!

DA X mann April 8, 2012 at 11:05 pm

This guy is just plain Indian of Mayan or Olmec decent. That’s it.

You Are Annoying March 26, 2012 at 11:37 am

Who said Mexicans are blacks, ignoramus? There has always been an African presence in Mexico that Mexicans like to downplay and outright deny. The only thing you are made up of is flesh, blood, and no small amount of stupidity. Be gone.

You Are Annoying March 26, 2012 at 11:40 am

Obviously most Mexcians are mestizos, but there are substantial Afro-Mexican enclaves on the east coast of Mexico in places like Veracruz and Costa Chica. Maybe George is mixed with some of those Mexicans.

cinnamongirlz June 28, 2012 at 7:07 am

I think African blood pretty much along with the Native American and Spainard blood, forms the beautiful Mexican base and culure. And I may also add, a substantial amount of Chinese too.

BRAZIL March 28, 2012 at 10:05 am


Kay April 8, 2012 at 11:24 pm

well as a black person i would like to say that you are being rude and stereotypical. just because black people act a certain way where you stay does not mean that has to count for the entire race. Mexican people very in skin tone just like most other races of the world.

Sami April 11, 2012 at 1:09 am

And Mexicans are lazy and come here only for the welfare, and smell like tapatio sauce.

testing April 11, 2012 at 1:12 am

you’re probably doing a mexican right know ha ha ha

Jarocho4338 May 19, 2012 at 11:56 pm

This is for “takemeflying”: First of all being Mexican is just like being American, British ect….. Just as there are Black, White, Indigenous Americans, there are Black, White, Indigenous and mixes of the three. You sound idiotic in assuming that all Mexicans are made up of the same racial makeup. I’m of Mexican descent (nationality) but unlike you I am a beautiful dark brown with dark cuy hair. My grandfather on my mothers side was jarocho (Indigenous/Black of Veracruz. In S. Mex. the black blood is more apparent than the north. I don’t know who you are but I know of your kind. I remember seeing white Mexicans as yourself, and I never felt as if I had anything in common with light-white Mexicans. My experience has been negative with you guys. I always sense an arrogance about you “hueros”…… Personally I dont have any camaraderie with white Mexicans. Whenever I see you people Im reminded of your invasion of Mexico and all the suffering that white people of Mexico cause us dark Mexicans. Oh yeah. I said it. I resent white Mexicans. You people are the minority of Mex. yet Mexican TV is full of blonde haired blue eyed white skinned people (like your sister) and us beautiful brown, dark brown almost black Mexicans are for ed to live in poverty while you people live the life. Correction. I’ve seen some impoverished white Mexicans (when I say some, I mea. very little) Im guessing the white ruling class of Mex. considers them white trash (I think impoverished or not, all white Mexicans are not the same as us beautifully dark Mexicans. So, never attempt to speak for all Mexicans. You can speak for others who have your phenotype but dont think that just because your family speaks spanish and resides in Mex. that you and I are the same. No sir. At one time you people held us in chains. Latin people are white europeans as yourself. I never call myself latino, Im not european. Do I have european blood, some, but I also recognize my Indigenous/African blood. Not many Mexican American Chicanos acknowlege their African blood but thats because they acknowlege only what they see.Even if they know that one of their grandparents had African phenotype, if it doesn’t show in them they think it’s not there…..In closing, your family may have been born in Mex. but that does not make you a spokeperson for the majority of the Mexican nationality which ranges from brown, dark brown and Negrito……

prettycool August 19, 2012 at 7:49 pm

I hear that a lot about lighter mexicans treating the darker mexicans like dirt, the white mexicans tend to be the wealthier ones too! that is why mexico doesn’t have a middle class really, either your poor there or rich. I just think it’s very poor and makes us mexicans as whole look so bad. I am a lighter mexican but I have both mixture in my family both dark and light skin. My grandparents are perfect example. My grandmother was dark skin, black hair, but my grandfather was light with blue eyes. To me being mexican is wonderful! I don’t care whether we are dark or light and I am sorry you encountered such horrible behavior like that. I just don’t get that concept. We are all mexican and yes we are mestizo. I did the same test george did recently and found we had the same dna markers however the my percentage was smaller in the african and east asian descent but hell I still have african and east asian blood as well as the european and native american! I think most mexicans or all mexicans have it the same 4 groups and no mexican is better than another and it disgusts me when the more european you have the better you are because to me that is bull shit!

Indiablack May 23, 2012 at 9:22 am

@takemeflying you are so
Dam ignorant as hell how
Dare you say all blacks are
Loud and rude, thats a lie
Your dumb ass dont even
Know every black person
In the world to say that, any races can be loud and rude ,like you to say tjat about all black people, yes i repeat you was rude for saying that ignorant mess about all black
Again all i mean all races can be
Bad and some people in all races
Can be good people, so watch what you
Say you sounding raciest, karma
Is a bitch,remember that, and I believe
Lopez test, I see he got a black
Person nose, I dont see no indian
In him, I only see mexican and
Black in him, but his test revealed
The truth, because why waste
Money on a scam or fake test so
Test dont lie and I believe it, some
Times you can tell a persons race and sometimes you cant it all goes back to genetics and how far back
The mixture goes, so good mix G. LOPEZ I LOVE YOU YOU ATE SO COOL AND FUNNY, AND A DOWN TO

Jocelyn June 26, 2012 at 6:27 pm

If you detest Mexicans with black blood, then you are ashamed of being Mexicans, because, tho African is the smallest percent of blood Mexicans have, they are still many with that blood. It sound to me like you’ll be more happy if you where European, not Mexican because your claiming your family looks more European than ANYTHING ELSE. Does that include your true ethnicity? shame…

cinnamongirlz June 28, 2012 at 7:19 am

I don’t think the African blood is the smallest percentage. The Spainards had way more Africans imported into Mexico to do their work than they had Spanish Europeans residing there at the time. That is why many of them had children with the the African and Native women there. Very rarely did the Europeans bring their women with them when they were out making their fortunes in a foreign, hostile land. But hey, a human has to live and they took what was there, while oppressing it at the same time. They decimated the Native population of Mexico filled in the gaps with Africans and so it is the base population to this day. Be proud: everywhere Africans went on the planet, we helped people survive and built up their economy, don’t hate, be thankful.

Jocelyn June 28, 2012 at 11:36 pm

Honey I was never hating, if I had African blood, I’d be proud then not hating. African is the smallest percentage in Mexico but not in other Latin countries. Do some research, most African slaves were taken to the Caribbean. Tho a lot still do reside in Mexico, the Caribbean is where most Africans were taken by Spaniards.

sadie March 15, 2012 at 1:27 am

What the hell is 55% European? You need to be more specific!

lopac March 15, 2012 at 1:54 am

specific! how about this dude is 100% native american. and just that.

I love you, Roger Scientist March 15, 2012 at 2:07 am

I love you, Roger Scientist March 15, 2012 at 4:42 am

I would gladly petition for Ethnic to block you from this site again.

Jarocho4338 May 21, 2012 at 1:07 am

This is for lopac; NO! HOW about accepting what is written in history and what science proves. The University of Stanford, in Palo Alto Ca. did extensive dna research in northern and central Mex. where most people appear as simply “Mestizo of Indigenous / spanish blood but found that 75% of this population has at least 3% at most 12% African bDNA. while southern Mexico is home to a higher percentage of African dna. Now historically anywhere between 250,000-500,000 African slaves were imported to Mexico to replace the Indigenous slaves who were unable to fight off spanish smallpox as written by Mexican anthropologist, Dr. Gonzalo A. Beltran in his book entitled “La Poblacion Negra de Mejico” (1944) Dr. Beltran researched historical spanish ships manifests and learned of the large number of W. African slaves listed as received in Veracruz Mex. for distribution throughout Mex. Many towns in the state of Veracruz have African names i.e. Mandinga, Mocambo (where my grandfather is from) Motamboa, Mozambique, Nyanga (now called Yanga) all these names are African and they are names of Mexican towns. The very popular Mexican verb Chinga is an African word as is the word Chamba meaning job. Mexicos second president, Vicente Guerrery, was of Indigenous/African blood. The last gov. of ca. before it became part of U.S. was Pio Pico Rivera an Indigenous/African Mex. originally of Sinaloa Mex. where 2/3 of Sinaloas pipulation was Mulato during the early 1900‘s. Emiliano Zapata was of Indigenous /African blood as was Pancho Villa. Both men were dark with kinky hair. I personally dont know of any pure Indigenous people with kinky hair. In the movies these two Mexican heroes are usually portrayed by white guys like yui brenner but thats Hollywood. Once upon a time in Hollywood black people were played by white people with painted faces. Don’t get me wrong. There are some white people in Mexico but they are not the majority. In fact they are the minority. They are the ones that make you scratch your head when they say they are Mexican. Don’t scratch your head anymore. Mexican is a nationality just as American is and just as there are people of different racial makeup in the U.S. there are people of different racial background. The difference betweeb Mexico’s slave days and the U.S. slave days is that Mexico allowed inter racial marriage from the start back in 1526 and continued for 500 years while the U.S. just started legally inter racial marriage less than 85 years ago….. Read Dr. Beltran’s book. He received much trouble from the white ruling class of Mexico for writting this book. He was forced to change subjects…..

ggg February 27, 2012 at 11:54 am

we dont try to hide our african heritage but many of us dont know anything about african culture or know any african in our family maybe with george features but in that case is a mixing not black im ligth skinned and not because of that im going to call myself spanish mexican cause i’m not im mestizo like most of us because there are libanese japanese chinese and other mixings thats why we call ourselves MEXICANS

Jarocho4338 May 20, 2012 at 12:09 am

is for ggg. I suggest that Mexicans should read books. I am Mexican, I read and Im aware of the slave trade that happened in Mex. beginning 1526 til 1821. I know that ‘Mex. experienced 500 years of racial mixing and I know and understand biology. I know that though a person may not have a particular phenotype ( physical appearance) that does not mean that phenotype reflects genotype. George’s phenotype screams Indigenous but science shows that his genotype has aNOTHER AGENDA. Read people. Pick up a book and read.

lol February 27, 2012 at 10:49 am

That face looks like a haloween mask scary as hell))

Antonia January 15, 2012 at 10:48 pm

I would say George Lopez looks more native american than anything else.

I would of taught that was obvious :P

He also looks sort of black. Look at his nose.

guadalupe January 3, 2012 at 6:51 pm

what makes mexicans is native and europeans mmh cuz i am a indigenous from mexico tarascan purhepecha and nahuati

jen December 22, 2011 at 7:24 pm

ohmygosh what is wrong with you people. dark doesnt equal black! when God created us he gave us alll different colors. native americans are dark as well. Just as God didnt only design curly hair for being of african ancestory and straight hair for everyone else

flower January 15, 2012 at 9:01 am

Wht book are you people reading ….First N foremost not all black people are frm africa and not all africans are black ….. Black is a race not a ethnic group…Mr.lopez is darker thn most African American I know including myself..You can be a black..brown..white mexican. If your mexican I’m pretty sure by ur comment your uninformed abt you history…First there was indigenous ppl…who were killed mostly killed off my the explores..Thn the brought african slaves..who brought disease that killed off even more indigenous ppl.. With that’s sd. Majority of mexican are a mixture of all three…please read a book and watch some videos..(And you will get the break down)…its funny how latinos like myself dissociate themselves frm any “blackness”..Latinos in america are quick to call a african american black…but a latino in their country the same color as an (AA) are called dark..

ggg February 27, 2012 at 11:37 am

not all indians die moron by the begining of the mexican independence in 1810 indians make up 60% of the total population, the rest where just minorities including the mestizos,mulatos and criollos youre not mexican so you dont know our history

ggg February 27, 2012 at 11:41 am

there was about 25 000000 of mexican indians in 1519 so even if the 90 % die they were left more than 2 millions

alittlehelp91 December 19, 2011 at 6:19 pm

I dont see why you guys are assuming things like just because he is dark he is black thats ignorant. Yes the man has african ancestry but its very little. For the most part most mexicans are white and native american because the spanish empire’s way of conquering was to mix with the natives. Yes I know there was slavery but that doesnt mean everybody got mixed with black. Besides that you only needed slaves mostly in areas where they had plantations and that was mostly southern mexico because the northern part is mostly desert.

Rob October 21, 2011 at 2:29 pm

99percent of mexicans are of European and native American ancestry wether pure or not, and the 1 percent left over are a mixer of whatever other ethnic group there are in Mexico hence George Lopez.oh people study your history very well before you try to explain shit.

Rob October 20, 2011 at 5:40 pm

You guys are all wrong, Mexico is just a Spanish version of America whatever ethnic groups America has Mexico has, Hispanic ,white none hispanic, native American,Asian ,Arab ,so on and so on Europeans came and brought oppression towards the indigenous the only difference is that Hispanics did it first and by hispanics I mean spaniards.the people of spain who came with columbus spread there seed and out came European blood on new America,just like the English and other Europeans did after them.

ricoh September 21, 2011 at 8:11 pm

He looks more African American than 4%,let’s get serious the dude looks thirty to forty percent black.We can’t forget over 400,000 african slaves sent to work the land in Mexico. Mexican people please read your history ,African blood is part of the mix,not just white and indian.

American87 September 22, 2011 at 10:07 pm

Just because he has darker skin doesn´t necessarily make it a black trait. Native people are also brown skin, and many East asians do have flat facial features. One shouldn´t generalize.

Dan October 3, 2011 at 3:29 pm

Dude, don’t try to teach us our own history. We know we have been enriched with African Heritage. No one is trying to deny that. I prefer the Indian / African part myself.

ihatefools October 10, 2011 at 7:36 am

Idiot, so you like to ignore the Spanish part?? this part ( the part you all should be proud of, stop listing to the tv and black racist talking about how bad whitey is, here go have a look at all these black lies, and the other black man telling the truth about it

mimi August 19, 2011 at 10:47 am

Mexicans are mixed with everything, we are all mixed the difference its that we dont like to call ourselfs afro mexican, or asian mexican , etc just mexicans . Im mexican american, my dad is half mexican half spanish and my mom s mom native american, spanish, italian and british and her dad japanese, russian , and slovekian ..

Midnight August 2, 2011 at 5:06 pm

Hey, I would have figured him for at least 10 percent because he’s really dark.

Deutsch Krieger500 July 28, 2011 at 4:43 am

But what type of European is he Mexikaner (Mexican) is not even a European place just south of a American state… confused! Lol

KimJ September 19, 2011 at 11:10 pm

Spanish is European. The Spanish conquered much of Central and South America. Thus, George’s European link is likely of Spanish origin unless he has other European influence from different cultures such as Irish or French, etc.

christian July 19, 2011 at 9:59 pm


are u dumb? the race “mexican” didnt just start out just like that. it took many years of mixing and interracial communities. africans, europeans, and asians migrated to mexico thus creating the “mexican” race as we call it. booom,! get owned.

Midnight July 29, 2011 at 4:09 pm

Hey, not really because originally it was Naive American and then the Europeans entered the country and mixed with the Natives. The look you see is an influx of different Spanish -Speaking people mixing with the orginal Natives with some Asian and Some African sprinkled in for good measure. (Hence George Lopez’s results)

Penelope May 29, 2011 at 1:46 pm

Too bad DNZ tests are fake.

Indians, Arabs, Middle Easteners get labeled EUROPEAN
even though they were around before Europeans existed, so for all we know, George Lopez could be part Pakistani, NOT European.

There isn’t a category for Indian or Australoid either.
It’s bogus

Also Siblings get different results on it.
You heard me. Brothers and sisters from the same parents get DIFFERENT results from those DNA tests.

Fuzzybear May 30, 2011 at 4:40 am

To Penelope

Well I don’t know if the DNZ test are fake or not,but I do agree with the other stuff.Also like I said before,they tend to change definitions whenever they feel like it.That why Caucasian has been changed 4 time in the last hundred years;each time to include new groups;while whose black has been shrunk lol .Also with 64trillions different possible combos between two parents, each offspring has a unique combination of genes.That why kids of mixed bloodlines can look like this:
and be full blood Siblings

sheryl May 22, 2011 at 9:49 pm

well i just watch a show called black in latin america and it states that between mexico and south america and the caribbean had more black as slaves than main land america and some of these place mixed with the blacks right a way some places didn’t teach them about there blackness just abou the spanish side witch was white at the time. my now a lot of the black blood has been deluted in some places and some you can see the mix but in the world where the white man rules white is always right that why light skin and weavy to stranght hair is alway favored.

daylaborer89 April 5, 2011 at 11:49 pm

im 62 percent native american mexican i took a dna test from 23 and me, and i bearly look like george lopez, his parents are from sonora mexico, sonora tends to have alot of white looking mexicans, im from puebla a predominant indigenous mexican state located in central southern mexico..

I Also Laughed When I Found Out LENA HORNE Was A Black Woman When She Looked Totally White. So I Think Itt Laughed Only Because George Lopez Looks Mestizo Mexican, And He Would Have Never Guessed Him Having Black In Him! So You Should Be Telling Him That Mexican Is Not A Race, It’s A Nationality, Ethnicity, Cultrue etc.!

Fuzzybear March 28, 2011 at 7:43 am

To total23

It’s because of Jose Vasconcelos (the father of brown pride),that the majority of Mexicans don’t know about their African heritage.Dude was like Adolf Hitler in his philosophy,he saw black as ugly.Also he only wanted to promote the Spanish and Native bloodline,and the closer to white or European the better.Strangely enough,he also hated Jews

I Do Know The History Of Mexico! And I Am Aware That Their Was African Slavery In Mexico! ButAre Talking About What A Mestizo Is Now;Which Is European And Native American, It No Longer Means Having African Ancestry! Fuzzybear always said that Mestizo USE2Mean Those Three Ethnicities. He Never Once Mention That Mestizo Meant Those Three Ethnicities Now!

seriously dude.. he would definitely look arab/berber.. the man doesnt even look that.. and it says that he is dominantly all but indigenous mostly.. genetics on a show are not bs… he would lose money out of it, and lots of people don’t like losing money out of thin air! a person cannot falsify or incriminate speech..

Anonymous March 10, 2011 at 4:16 pm

As with most, if not all comedians, he targets that subject matter which is most popular to take shots at. A perfect example of this is his and other comedians cheap shots at “virgins,” both male and female. Rarely anymore do you hear them taking shots at “players,” the wealthy, and other individuals leading a charmed life.

However, I can understand taking shots at white people, as they comprise the majority of people north of the Rio Grande and hold the vast majority of the money and power across the continent.

Richard Kerr March 19, 2011 at 8:15 pm

oh helll nah… m, You are wrong with hispanics come from europe. most hispanics are from the central/south/latin american countries.. they are not europe, and spaniards from europe are not mestizo or latino.. they are white/caucasian… hispanic is a culture, still questionable on ethnicity, and are not all white/caucasian..

I think the DNA test that Geoge took was a bunch of bullcrap. It said he was 55% white!! I mean common, the dude looks at least 70-85% amerindian. I think they should take multiple testings by different testing companies.

Jenes November 29, 2010 at 11:30 pm

He has AFRO in him, that explains his nose. Many natives just look Asian.

is November 30, 2010 at 10:56 pm

He only has 4% African; so I don’t think it’s really possible for his African blood to have a huge influence on his appearance; namely his nose. The Caucasian is evident through how tall he is. The DNA testing could have gotten the 9% East Asian wrong since East Asian and Amerindian DNA is similar. Personally, I think that he is really 41% Amerindian; considering the DNA testing got the Asian part wrong, which is probably the case.

afrobeats January 10, 2011 at 10:27 am

George Lopez is tall ? he’s about 5’10 am even a few inches taller than him that was very ironic of u lol. He looks very Amerindian am sure he is more native than white. there’s almost nothing white about this man. his nose is wide and big but it’s very native american then again genetics hardly lie *shrugs*

Lala May 23, 2011 at 5:36 pm

Sorry, you are wrong.

Ameridians were coloured even darker by the introduction of small amounts of African blood.

Black blood did the same thing to the Spaniards and Portuguese. The Portuguese themselves are not particularly Mediterranean. In fact, they are very Western European, very different than Greeks or Armenians for example. It was a good amount of Black blood from the slave trade and a significant amount of Berber (who are white) and Afro-Berbers (who are mixed looking) into the stream to alter the general look across the country.

WTF May 24, 2011 at 5:08 am

@ Lala

Only some Berber groups are white or whitish,and others that are completely black;the rest are mixed bloods(ranging from whitish to mulatto):
Lets just say most of the people up there are mixed,and usually they will tell you that;at least the ones I’ve talked to

Melanie Lombardi November 26, 2010 at 11:25 pm

I mean does it really matter for you to get all heated about this? In the end they’re all Latino. When people ask them what ethnicity they are, mostly likely they’ll say Latino or where ever there parents claim they’re from. They aren’t going to get all scientific about it. And you’re telling people to learn about their backgrounds when George took a test for it, and scientist are the one who examines those type of this. That versus your word? Sorry, but I’d rather stick to the people who do that type of things for a profession.

yjhhhj February 6, 2011 at 4:38 pm

Mexican Is A Race Hunny Cuz Looky Here Mexicans, Cubans, Puerto Ricans Or Any Other Latinos Have Different BackGrounds Traditions And Accents Yeah We Are Called Latnos But Thats Because We Speak The Same Language Spanish But We Have Different Ways Of Talking It ; Understand Now ?

Mexican, Cuban, and Puerto Rican is not a race. There are people of every racial background in those regions. Don’t be a simpleton. I have met a Puerto Rican who was black as night and I have also met a Puerto Rican who was blond with blue eyes. Puerto Rican is culture, not race.

Masashi16 August 10, 2010 at 5:31 pm

You can definitely tell there are European influences on George’s facial features. Even though he’s dark skinned, could you really imagine him with long hair dressed like a traditional Aztec? I know I can’t, simply because his facial features really aren’t very NA, they’re pretty European. Also American Indians in the US somehow have weaker genes than tribes farther south because a lot people who are half Native hardly look Native, and most quarter-bloods just look white. The thing that’s funny is how he just looks NA to most people, but he’s actually got a very diverse mixture.

Fuzzybear August 10, 2010 at 7:50 pm

No one forgets to mention them,that why I don’t have to bring them up,it’s just Africans they forget;who came with the Spaniards,and continue to.Also the change the definition of Mestizo,it use to include African or any combo of the three.Now I got mine information from a history museum,and the Spanish census ,so I’m pretty sure it’s true

Eva Longoria on the other hand has mianly european features .thin nose, mouth, slim face…despite her igonorance in thinking she was manily Native american origin…where does she think she gets her facial features from ..native americans dont have this look…some people are ignorant…even her father claimed he was from Spain in origin (although not entirly) and that her aunt clamed to be spanish and not mexican….which suprised her….these poeple..

if she’s so proud of claiming to be more native american/indigenous then why call her self latin all the time and not go around calling herself Mayan?…..

Nahla August 10, 2010 at 4:02 pm

Most Mexicans are part European because of the Spanish conquerors, that’s why most Mexicans are called Mestizos (Eurpoean and Native American mix). Dark genes are dominant; that’s why Jessica Alba, for example , looks very ethnic even though 85% European. My friend is Eurasian and looks Hispanic because Hispanic people are mixed (and beautiful : D) George is a good looking guy.

Fuzzybear August 10, 2010 at 7:54 pm

I don’t know about the 55%,but the 4% is very believable.Since Africans have been there since Europeans have shown uP

Adriana August 11, 2010 at 2:05 am

I’d believe 55%. There’s a lot of biracial people who are 50% black and 50% white and you’d never think they’d had white blood in them. So why can’t the same go for someone with George’s background? Genes and probability go together. It’s just chance, and the more mix you are, and depending on how many generations you’re mixed, the greater the chances are that you and your full blooded sibling might not look alike.

But genes, a very complicated matter. Whereas there’s also an explanation as to how some siblings come out looking alike. But that’s too complicated for now.

:-p And that he’s 4% african is not a shock.

fuzzybear August 11, 2010 at 5:55 am

To Adriana

Hey sista,How are you?I know the 55% was on the money,I just wasn’t concern about it right then.It’s just that Mexicans in the North of the country don’t know anything about their African Heritage.I was reading and article the other day and a college professor in Mexico states that he didn’t know until 7yrs ago.I thought how sad that was until I remember the avg black person in the states couldn’t tell you 1/10 about what black people have done in the past ;all they know is (slavery,malcolm x,and Dr.King)

I’ve read that many many Latinos do not claim their African ancestry in Latin countries even though Africans were an important part of their countries history, especially in the Caribbean.

You’d be surprised how many people do not know the difference between race, ethnicity and nationality.

Spanish is also a nationality (Spain).

You are right, Fuzzybear. There were free blacks who with the Spanish when they came to Mexico.

Fuzzybear February 20, 2010 at 3:32 pm

No I not talking about the Olmec,although I do believe they were black people;the corn roll style braids in the statues hair did it for me.Now I meant some of the black people that came there who were not slaves,example some of the Conquistadors(Juan Garrido,and Pedro Mejías).Also I used the word captives instead of the word slave,since there were rebellions;They did try to fight for their freedom.

Chief_Mulatto_Native February 20, 2010 at 7:41 am

Your right about everything you said,except the black captives were brought there before colonial times.

Chief_Mulatto_Native February 6, 2010 at 3:00 am

Mexico has african ancestry as well. The Spanish brought African slaves to Mexico in the colonial times. Many Mexicans are Afro-mestizos, not just mestizos. Afro-Mexicand mixed with the Spanish and the Native American mixture by assimilation. Jose Vasconcelos came up with the theory of the mestizo identity and that’s why you all think all Mexicans are mestizos. When in fact, many are Afro-mestizos and don’t know it because of the assimilation.

George has multiple ancestories like most Mexicans and Hispanics. The 55% European obviously is Spanish and could include other European and Middle Eastern roots. The 32% Native American came from his Mexica or other indigenous Mexican ancesters. The 9% East Asian could also be more Native American ancestry that came out as East Asian markers. Or it could actually be from East Asian ancestors such as the Chinese or Filipinos that have settled in northern Mexico and intermarried with George’s mestizo ancestors. And the 4% African came from African slaves brought to Mexico by the Spanish, many of whom married into the Mexican mestizo majority. As a result, many mestizo Mexicans or other Latinos have some distant African ancestry because of this fact.

i agree with alice, he’s multiracial, he’s only 32% native american and mexicans are indians, look it up, he’s 55% european which is considered white but he says he’s latino and sticks by it, he’s 4% black, and if you go by the one drop rule they would say he is black, i am multi-racial and i tell people just that, i refuse to only pick one of the races i’m a part of, so i include all by saying i’m multi-racial, i’m a quarter afro-american but i’m not going to tell people i’m black and forget about the other races i’m a part of, if other multi-racial people want to pick one thats up to them, i think it’s neat to be a part of many and i’m proud of my heritage, all of it!

I think the Asian may come from his Amerindian background after all Amerindians did come from Asia way before the Europeans came to the Americas & ofcourse George looks nothing like Gael! George looks are darker Mestizo & Gael is a lighter Mexican Mestizo & Lili is right ofcourse all Mexicans don’t looks alike there are different mixtures some have more Spanish in them others have more Amerindian in them some look more Middle Eastern it depends

Alice, a lot of Mexicans have heritage similar to Lopez. btw where did you get that info?


alice January 15, 2010 at 6:28 am

first of all, george lopez did a DNA test and he’s 55% white, 32% amerindian, 9% asian, & 4% black. but of course, to everyone he’s mexican when in reality he’s multiracial!!

ethnic June 24, 2009 at 5:35 pm

Id say they definitely both look Mexican.

anen June 23, 2009 at 3:37 pm

It’s funny how Gorge Lopez’s ethnicity is “Mexican”

and right below “Celebrities with similar heritage:” Gael Garcia Bernal with the same ethnicity they look nothing alike Hugh….

Lili September 6, 2009 at 1:44 am

what a dumbass!! Not all mexicans look alike pendejo! Do all whites look alike?

Rau June 23, 2010 at 1:35 pm

Mexican is a nationality not a race or a ethnicity…Latino/Hispanic is an ethnicity like the less commonly used word Anglo…the only true races are white black ameridian and asian. A latino could be of any race thats why latinos are so diverse.
A latino becomes a latino when there in america. Latin american countries have come up there different types of racial/ethnic classification which is different and may be considered taboo in the USA. Ex. the word Mulatto (black/white mix) is taboo in the USA but is commonly used amongst people in Latin America. Also the word mestizo is a common word used in Latin America to describe someone who is of mixed amerindian/white.
In the USA we don’t normally utilize words to describe mixtures.

Wait I can’t put it all on his shoulders

ricoh September 21, 2011 at 8:00 pm

Jose Vasconcelos was the father of La RazaMovement,he was vehemently anti black. He single handed changed the mind set of mixed race people,his movement eradicated the true african blood in thier veins,having them to believe they are strictly indians andwhite spanish. Four hundred slaves were enslaved in Mexico,the first president of Mexico was part african.

Dude are you kidding,it’s still there.Didn’t you read anything I gave?Every expert keeps saying the avg mestizo is still 3-8% African,and some are more.I say it meant it in past tense,because they change the definition to exclude the African part.This is why I mentioned Jose Vasconcelos,because it was his philosophy of a new (cosmic race) where the African traits would breed out,and the new Mexican would look more European

total23 March 29, 2011 at 8:07 am

I Don’t Get Your Statement! Maybe I Had Never Made Myself Clear; I Am Talking About Mestizo No Longer Meaning The African Ancestry Due To How The Latino Society Sees It Now! Yes The Average Mestizo Has 3-8% Of Black But That Does Not Mean They Are Mestizo Because Of That Black Percentage Any More! When People Think Of Mestizo, They Think Of The European And Native American Blood, It Is Also In The Dictionary And Etc.

Does Not Matter What It Used To Mean, Because Now (As Most People See It) It Means European And Native American Ancestry! So When Itt Said He Thought He Was Mestizo, He Thought He Was Of European And Native American Ancestry; Which Proves The Way How Mestizo Is Defined Now!

Again I Am Not Talking About What It Used To Mean Which Was (European, Native American, African Ancestry) I Am Talking About What It Means Now Or What The Latin Society Sees It As Now (European & Native American)!!!!!

Now Don’t Bother Me, Fuzz! Lol!

That’s to bad,I going to mess with you now.Here this is todays Definition,notice how it says(especially)but it doesn’t say only
Didn’t say it doesn’t mean black,that’s just what people are taught;same for like the word MOOR. Also most of mexican Society doesn’t even know black people are in the country,that’s why they don’t know they have that heritage.I mean look how Lopez jump up yelling (Hey I’m Black),because he like rest didn’t know.Also the visible ones South and in places like Coahuila call themselves Mestizo,and they without a doubt have African heritage,and they will tell you.Now it’s going to matter because,the Afro-Latinos want to be seen now.Also many of the light Latinos want to know about their African heritage:
So it’s going to matter.Why do you think they’re building museums to the African history down there.People are making others aware this.

Your words:Said He Thought He Was Mestizo, He Thought He Was Of European And Native American Ancestry

Who are you talking about?

Also in other part of Latin America,It still means that,Here’s Mestizos family from Venezuela:
and in some places pure blood native say they are mestizo,because they speak spanish

There is site after site talking about this,and Latin country has it share of site talking about this very thing,so it’s going to matter.

Now you stop trying to argue with me,LOL

total23 March 30, 2011 at 10:24 am

I Meant What I Meant! I Was Talking About Itt Claiming That George Lopez Is Mestizo!

And Your First Point, Not A Good Example Because In That Definition It Says Anybody Of Mixed ethnicity or something! Which basically means That An Asian And Black Mixed Could Also Mean Mestizo! DUH!

wtf March 30, 2011 at 3:19 pm


How do you know that didn’t happen?We already know filipinos and chinese were both in mexico.Also the chinese were seen as black back then.So whose to say that combo didn’t call itself mestizo.I meant it’s been shown on here ,that just because you haven’t heard of something,doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.How do we know that people in the south don’t have a lot of asian dna.Just because you don’t see traits,doesn’t mean anything.Look how you laugh when you found out george had asian blood,he got it from somewhere.who’s to say afrochinese mestizos weren’t running all around friend is a chinese mexican mix,before her I never heard of that combo,so who’s to say.

This is strange,your aruging in favor of a definition you know to be false.I told you they want mexicans to be seen one way,but they can change the meaning of the word all they want,but doing that doesn’t change the blood.Lopez is a mestizo,of the old meaning of the word,just like most mestizo most likely are.I had a site that want come throught,that stated that 75% of mestizo today fit the old meaning of the word(spanish,native and african).Now in a few generations the new meaning will prove true(maybe).Word meanings change all the time.Mixtures have been going on every since different colors came about.Now it wasn’t until racism came on the scene that people started to put names(insults) to them.Mestizo wasn’t nice,Mulatto or Creole,zambo etc.All these words were insults,you were less than human.It wasn’t until people started to put a spin on things,take neg and turning it into a positive.Then to make themselves feel better,they did the same to people they felt were below them.Well anyhow thinking about it,why agrue about it,they are what they are.we have different opinions on the subject,and we will have to agree to disagree

total23 March 31, 2011 at 12:08 pm

To Fuzzybear!

No One Is Arguing, I Am Telling You What I Meant! I Don’t Care What It Truly Means Or Whatever! All I Am Saying Is That When I Saw George Lopez I Thought He Was Mestizo (Part European, Part Native American); I Got The Definition From The Dictionary And Other Sites! I Was Shocked To Hear About Him Having Sub-saharan DNA And The Asian DNA! I Just Thought He Was European And Native Since His Phenotype Looked That Way Too Me! Same Way About Lena Horne, And Ryan Giggs! I Thought Lena Horne Was A White Woman With Admixture, And I Just Thought Ryan Giggs Was White Until I Researched Upon Them! I Was Shocked Because Their Other Ethnicity Does Not Show In Their Phenotype! I Am Aware That You Can Have Many Other Ethnicity Inside Of You And Look One Ethnicity In Your Phenotype, But I Mean, When A Person Did Not Know Their Background And They Were To Guess, Or If They Were To Have A First Impression Then Some People Would Say They Are White Until Lena Horne Or Ryan Giggs Tell Them ThaT They Are Mix! Then Those People Would Consider Other Wise, Or Black Has Some People May Do!

It’s Like Saying, If You Were Too See Giancarlo Esposito Walking Across The Street People Would Say He Is Black Until He Mentions His Italian Father, Then People Would Consider Him Otherwise, Or Black! Simple!

All I Was Trying To Say Is That When Itt Thought George Lopez Was Mestizo He Thought He Was European And Native American!; Which He Obviously Did Not Know About The Black Ancestry Would Be Apart Of The Mestizo Definition! Which Is Why He Was Shock To Understand That He Was Black! The Asian Ancestry Is Nothing To Be Shocked About Since The Amerindians Of Mexico Look Similar To Asians!

wtf March 31, 2011 at 5:24 pm


I understand what your saying.However I do agree with fuzz,these racist definitions are bullcrap.I been studying this stuff,and anyone could have said they were mestizo.From what I read,pure blood indians could have said they were mestizo as long as they spoke spanish.It had a bunch of meanings,so your example of black and asian,yes could have been mestizo.I also agree they change word meanings to suit the situation.Most of the mestizo today would not fit that definiton in the dictionary

Fuzzybear April 1, 2011 at 3:21 am

To what the

That’s right those definitions are just that,bullcrap.They’re are forever doing that,then they teach kids what they want them to know.They thing is they didn’t knowledge to be so easily available now,so they didn’t bother to get rid of the old meanings out of the books etc.Take mulatto,it just means mix also.however they’ve taught that it just mean black and white mix.When it could easily mean white and asian,or black and asian etc.So to cover this up,they came up with new names(Eurasian,blasian etc).Even in the old days turk was another name for mulatto,blue blood meant you were black;now it means royalty.

Oh you don’t care,WELL I CAN SEE THAT.Stop worrying about those definitions,I told you they change them when they feel like it(example Caucasian been change 4 times in since 1937).Also the dictionary only gives you the approved version of a word,which it became the official version after Jose (cosmic race theory ),but it was still a lie,and I know I know you don’t care
Now this Lene horne might have fooled me
Lene horne:
yes it is her,the straight ahead pics wouldn’t go through
There lots of black people like her:
