Gigi Hadid is an American model and television personality. Her siblings are Bella Hadid and Anwar Hadid, who are both also models, with Bella also being an equestrian.

Gigi’s father, Mohamed Hadid, who was born in Nazareth, Israel, is an Arab Palestinian (he is of the Muslim religion, and has said, “I wouldn’t call myself a ‘devout’ Muslim… but I’m very proud of my heritage”). However, Gigi’s sister Bella has said, “He [their father] was always religious, and he always prayed with us. I am proud to be a Muslim.”

Gigi’s mother, television personality, model, and interior designer Yolanda Hadid (née Yolanda van den Herik), is Dutch, from Papendrecht.

Gigi’s paternal grandparents were Anwar Mohamed Hadid and Kharia Daher.

Gigi’s father has said that he is descended from Zahir al-Umar, an autonomous Arab ruler of northern Palestine in the mid-18th century.

Gigi’s maternal grandmother is named Ans. She is pictured here.

Am I the only one who thinks she looks very Arab/Palestinian? Beside her hair/eye color, she does very much, facially speaking, strike me as Levantine Arab, though she can obviously pass for European as well.

Samiiraa February 17, 2017 at 2:34 am

Yes she does look Arab.

alexgxo October 6, 2016 at 1:40 pm

Very pretty. She looks like she’s of European descent if I saw her down the street.I actually doubt how much middle eastern Dna is in her father he looks very European Esque tbh.

Also I find it funny people were calling her and her siblings not full white. These same people don’t want everything to be “Eurocentric” and talk about how Asians and blacks come in all features as well without being heavily admixed ironically they’re view of what’s white or not is very Eurocentric lmao. Ignorance is bliss I guess..

Adamina September 9, 2016 at 10:20 pm

Darn! There are a lot of haters here. Gigi is very beautiful. Stop being bitter about it!

bakchoyhurl February 5, 2016 at 9:18 pm

There are so many transpeople popping up even I get confused when someone is trans or not these days.

Adrian1Cram February 5, 2016 at 9:16 pm

I thought gigi hadid was trans at first and some sort of success story. I’m a guy so I barely know anything about modeling. To me her built comes off as more masculine looking and she looks bigger then the actual transgirl gigi gorgeous.

phaedra April 11, 2016 at 3:11 am

Er, her “bigness” is just fat – what women easily get.

Gigi Gorgeous is very skinny. If she works out, she will be very broad shouldered, as she is biologically male.

bakchoyhurl February 5, 2016 at 9:07 pm

The funny part is some of the male models actually look ultra feminine.

They want women that look like men and men that look like women. I will never understand the modeling industry…

Adrian1Cram February 5, 2016 at 9:05 pm

It’s no wonder a lot of these models are looking transgender. I actually saw trans women that looked more female-like then some of these models. Weird.

bakchoyhurl February 5, 2016 at 9:03 pm

Apparently they purposely want women that look unfeminine and built that way. I remember reading their requirements and the rule was to be 6 feet tall with huge broad shoulders, da fuq?

bakchoyhurl February 5, 2016 at 9:01 pm

Pornstars > models

Lmao!!

Adrian1Cram February 5, 2016 at 9:00 pm

I also don’t see the appeal in models anymore and I don’t know many guys into it.

I definitely think porn took the attractive women. Even vs models look different these days. Every model I came across so far was 6’1 and looked like a shemale lordy!

bakchoyhurl February 5, 2016 at 8:56 pm

Personally I find the modeling industry really went downhill. They don’t take in attractive women anymore just any girl that’s overly tall and big…which isn’t hot to men in general. Having connections seems to land the job as well.

It seems like they just look for any girl that’s 6 ft tall with a broad, bulky, masculine built. I think this way they use the same model in mens fashion(just cut off the hair). Models don’t have that sex appeal they use to have and I rarely hear of any new girls that worked hard to get in. I think the attractive ones are moving onto porn and the glamour business.

Adrian1Cram February 5, 2016 at 8:45 pm

Exactly my point!

Anyway what’s up with all these androgynous looking women in the modeling industry? I remember when models use to be around 5’8 with big boobs and slim figures :P

bakchoyhurl February 5, 2016 at 8:41 pm

I doubt most people would consider white. Her last name is hadid, she’s worn a hijab, done henna, she’s a proud palestinian, I heard her dad is muslim, she’s in touch with her ethnic heritage, she’s dating pakistani guy zayn malik….really I could go on. I think it’s obvious how people see her. This isn’t rocket science.

marjanel March 1, 2016 at 1:22 pm

Her dad is not muslim.He was born in a muslim family but he didn’t practice the religion.What is she is dating a Pakistaní, before that She was dating mostly white people.Well, obviously she is so “white” looking, her father is also like that with blue eyes, many Arabs are like that, especially some lebanese, syrians and Palestinian Arabs.

Adrian1Cram February 5, 2016 at 8:33 pm

Thanks, glad we agree haha

bakchoyhurl February 5, 2016 at 8:26 pm

Also I agree with your point adrian, I don’t think she looks white either.

bakchoyhurl February 5, 2016 at 8:24 pm

I don’t think she’s trans but I understand where your coming from. Her body isn’t very feminine and I find it’s on the bulky side; broad shoulders, no waist to hip ratio, heavy built and all.

I never really found models attractive, especially these days. Models tend to have very masculine features for my taste.

Adrian1Cram February 5, 2016 at 8:18 pm

Is she a tranny? She’s taller then the average guy and has a very manly figure.

Adrian1Cram February 5, 2016 at 8:16 pm

Oh okay thanks :)

bakchoyhurl February 5, 2016 at 8:15 pm

No I don’t think they’re related. They just have the same name.

Adrian1Cram February 5, 2016 at 8:13 pm

She’s not “white”….I had no idea there were so many racist and ignorant people on here. She’s half white half arabic, it’s like half white half chinese. If you search up the definitions of race and caucasian you’ll see she falls under mixed race and she won’t count as caucasian because her dad isn’t european.

Here’s how I see it, arabic people are regarded as minorities and people of color, therefore they can’t be regarded as “white”….

Since she’s half arabic that makes her half non-white while her other half is white. So she’s mixed, she’s not fully white or fully arabic. Exactly like kristin kreuk, zayn malik, obama etc. Just because she looks more like her mom it doesn’t erase her middle eastern ancestry.

On another note I know the census clumps middle eastern people with white europeans but from what I know they’re changing that soon so that right there shows middle easterners aren’t “white” since they’ll get categorized separately.

marjanel March 1, 2016 at 1:33 pm

Have you seen her dad? He has light hair, blue eyes, light skin.Many Arabs look “very European”. I knew blonde and blue-eyed Arabs, she doesn’t look like that only because her mum but because her dad.Many Arabs are not at all ” people of color”.And American Census don’t define anyone, A census that in the beginning used hispanic as a race? A ethnicity called Asian But where people as Gigi hadid ‘s father is not? Because Chinese, Japanese, Koreans,etc are not the only Asians.What about Lebanese, Pakistani, Irak,Iran,etc?

Adrian1Cram February 5, 2016 at 7:46 pm

Does she have some sort of relation to gigi gorgeous?

Adrian1Cram February 5, 2016 at 7:46 pm

Wow she’s around 6 ft, she’s huge!

rafe December 31, 2015 at 7:48 am

“Palestinian Arab” is a propagandistic term used by bigots to downplay the ethnic uniqueness of the Palestinian people by lumping them together with some undifferentiated mass of Arabs who can only be told apart from one another via their geographic location. It’d be just as moronic as referring to me as “Brazilian Latin American”, as if “Brazilian” were not enough to distinguish me from my continental neighbors.

The correct, neutral term for her is “Palestinian” only.

Ajaxfan December 12, 2015 at 6:29 am

Where did all the comments go?

Tyler November 14, 2015 at 11:49 pm

Lmao!! All the middle eastern people on here keep ranting that she’s white. She’s not white european and you’re racist to white people if you think so. Arabs and europeans are completely different. The fact that people on here think italians and palestinians are exactly the same is pathetic and racist. These are completely different people with different cultures.

Tyler November 16, 2015 at 2:54 pm

So now we’re gonna categorize white people into”strictly white” and “generally white”?? How racist. She’s either white or she’s not and she’s not because the modeling industry hired her due to her heritage, affirmative action. White people don’t get that benefit. Only middle eastern people and anti-white racists consider her white. Nothing is going to change my mind. End of story.

Tyler February 5, 2016 at 7:23 pm

I’m not saying that she was actually hired out of affirmative action as if its a fact, I’m saying that they possibly hired her for that reason because that sort of thing can happen. Just stating my opinion so don’t take me literally damn.

athelya November 17, 2015 at 1:58 pm

i agree italians and arabs look nothing alike

cwm85 November 14, 2015 at 12:06 pm

Where has she made anti white statements? Why hate what she is? Like or not she is white and seen as such. Her mother his dutch. Her dad looks like a regular white male that your see in your local super market. He maybe Muslim but it Doesn’t mean he is not white or classified as such…

andrew November 14, 2015 at 3:29 am

his dad is not a “typical” Palestinian Arab, he would stick out like a sore thumb in a Palestinian crowd.

andrew November 14, 2015 at 3:30 am

*her dad

andrew November 14, 2015 at 3:26 am

do you also consider Moroccans as “Mediterraneans” because Morocco is bordered by Med sea? Are Egyptians and French the same thing? They’re both Mediterranean, after all. Dumb logic. Do you really believe Palestinians and Italians are similar ethnic groups? LOL.

byyong83 November 15, 2015 at 5:47 pm

Yes because they are both Caucasian.

All Europeans, North, East nd South, North Africans and Middle Easterns belong to the same racial group (Cacucasian) and therefore the individual ethnic groups are similar.

Trade between north africa and southern europe across the med since ancient times has let to intermarriage which is why many Southern Europeans (Spanish, Italians, Greeks) share many physical characteristics with both Northern Europeans and North Africans.

athelya November 17, 2015 at 2:02 pm

that only happened in the south of france, the osuth of italy and the south of spain + greece

byyong83 November 16, 2015 at 4:52 am

agreed, but what does that have anything to do with race and ethnicity?

andrew November 16, 2015 at 4:59 am

It has. Just 2 or more North African men walking together in a Southern European town look foreign.

andrew November 16, 2015 at 12:21 pm

Yes, you really have no idea to think “modern day Italians and Greeks are closer to Middle Eastern populations than to other Europeans”.

Tyler November 14, 2015 at 12:16 am

On youtube theres a video where people ask if palestinians and other levents arabs are white, including the half ones and the majority of people said no, especially the white people. I think this answers your question on whether she’s white or not. These people aren’t invited in the white club and society doesn’t considers arabs to be white. Keep in mind half of Hadids family is muslim and she grew up with muslim culture, statistically over 50% of americans wouldn’t be happy with a muslim president.
http://hotair.com/headlines/archives/2015/09/25/poll-51-of-likely-voters-say-they-wouldnt-support-a-muslim-for-president/

An all american white girl wouldn’t have this issue. There’s nothing white american about hadid except her appearance which could easily be faked. Her twitter account is filled with anti-white, anti-american hate. Of course all the arabs on here wanna convince me that they’re white.

Tyler February 5, 2016 at 7:31 pm

I’m not saying that it’s a fact her twitter has antiwhite/antiamerican views. Some of the stuff I read came off as offensive so to me it was anti-white, anti-american. This isn’t factual, it’s subjective.

I personally found it offensive so I saw it as anti-white, anti-american, some people don’t see it that way and some do. It’s the same way people think something is racist but others don’t think it’s racist. It’s an opinion.

marjanel March 1, 2016 at 1:37 pm

Gigi Hadid’ s father was born in a Muslim family, but he didn’t oractice the religion.So, i doubt that she was raised muslim, She would not be a model.Arab and Muslim.is different.She grew in Arabic culture not muslim.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 4:24 pm

Lol I just reported you and you are attacking several people Tyler not just me.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 4:33 pm

Hmm but I’m not and unless you can prove that the site mods won’t buy it. Too bad.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 5:18 pm

I’ve read several of your racist comments and attacking me and others who disagree with your uneducated opinions. You called me a fucking idiot on this page. And I retaliated. Do you need me to cooy and paste your comments?

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 6:14 pm

Nothing I have stated was racist, in fact it was you with the racist views. Disagreeing with an opinion is not attacking, what’s attacking is when you track down someones comments and constantly harass them, which is what you are doing. You’re the one that attacked me and everyone else, you even replied to me and said “I can reply to anyone and cause a dispute” you’re still trying even when I commented on Natalie Portman.

Again you’re making up crap that you can’t prove. Here’s an idea… you stop replying to my posts and leave me alone. You clearly have too much time on your hands and need to get a life.

sparkles180 October 25, 2015 at 7:26 pm

cwm85, how exactly did you report another user? I’m trying to figure this out but I don’t know how. Do you click on admin?

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 9:24 pm

Talk to a mod. There is a lot of racist and attacking on here but they let people reign free to attack spew all type of racist and hateful language on here I noticed. I’ve been on here since late june and the comments have been completely vicious a lot of times. Free speech I guess lol

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 3:18 pm

As a white guy I don’t consider her white because she’s half Palestinian, those people are not white and it’s crazy that people actually she’s white and it’s quite insulting to real white people. White is socially used to describe people of full european descent with european features.

Guess what? White people don’t benefit from affirmative action but someone of Palestinian descent like gigi does, why? Because they are NOT white. You can’t benefit from affirmative action then claim to be white, that’s a double standard and it doesn’t work that way. It’s a slap on the face to white people if you’re going to benefit from that and then try to come into our group and claim white.

Only an idiot would actually think she’s white.

stonelord November 1, 2015 at 11:08 am

what a load of nonsense. I’m afraid your dna and your skull features override man-made ridiculous junksuch as ‘affirmative action.’ She’s not black, she’s not Chinese…well, what does that leave?

midori29 November 11, 2015 at 7:10 am

I just discovered this girl was half Arab muslim, etc. In America half European and Indian meztizo Mexican, Middle Eastern, Indian, Asian ,etc is considered still socially white. l’ve known half Mexican and white people who consider themselves white. People talk about the one drop rule for blacks. But American whites have a larger one drop social rule too. Meaning anything mixed with white, except 50 /40 percent black is still white. Its true. Some people in America even consider many Puerto Ricans and North Africans as white too.

Tyler November 13, 2015 at 11:54 pm

Lol again all the middle eastern people on this site trying to convince me that they’re white, you’re not. Most palestinians don’t consider themselves white. If they are white europeans then why are they terrorizing europeans all the time? why are they labelled as people of color and benefit from affirmative action? Why are muslims hired on the spot for diversity? Exactly cause they’re not your typical white american of european descent.

“In America half European and Indian meztizo Mexican, Middle Eastern, Indian, Asian ,etc is considered still socially white…..But American whites have a larger one drop social rule too. Meaning anything mixed with white, except 50 /40 percent black is still white.”

So by your logic michael steger is only white just cause he’s half norwegian despite the fact his other half is ecuadorian and looks nothing like a white guy. Flawed logic. I never heard of that “rule”. Last time I checked anyone with two races are considered mixed raced or biracial, not only white or only asian. Many people from Latin america are originally from europe so they are white but Hadid is from Palestine which is in the middle east so they don’t have ancestors from europe or the same features as europeans, therefore not white. She’s just as much arab as she is european which overall makes her a poc.

Again you can’t claim to be white while having the benefit from being a poc. The amount of anti-white sentiment on this site is crazy.

musicfangirl November 14, 2015 at 11:12 am

Palestinians are white…

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 2:13 pm

Her body is good but her face is fugly. This explains her face, I thought she was white but she’s actually half arabic and her dad is muslim….Instant turn off.

midori29 November 11, 2015 at 7:12 am

10 years ago, her look and ethnicity would have never been so popular. It shows that America is changing to accept more ethnic looking white people. I think the Kardashians illustrate that too. Americans are getting away from the true European look. They are picking Brazilian and other mixed whites.

Tyler February 5, 2016 at 7:36 pm

^You’re extremely racist to white people, half the crap you said doesn’t make any sense, “ethnic looking white people”? There’s no such thing.

marjanel March 1, 2016 at 1:46 pm

What Brazilians? Brazilian models? Most Brazilian models are white

Alex234 October 25, 2015 at 11:59 am

Wow it got heated in here, so many rude insults. The amount of stupidity on this site is daunting. Some people think one way and some think another.

I think you guys really need to leave that user sparkles alone. She’s entitled to her opinion, just like everyone else. The amount of insults thrown as her, “idiot”, “moron” is insane. I’m looking at you cwm85, neiltennant and andrew. You know this site would have more people if you guys didn’t hate on someone for holding a different opinion? This place is a joke because of the amount of crazy people that spread hate. While we’re at it I don’t consider her white either, bite me. If you guys bother to reply and insult me like you did to the other users then I’ll report you for online harassment.

sparkles180 October 24, 2015 at 3:04 pm

It doesn’t matter what you think, most americans don’t consider a half palestinian to be white and you all know that. She’s not white, she’s mixed. End of story.

cwm85 October 24, 2015 at 3:11 pm

She’s white you idiot.

sparkles180 October 24, 2015 at 3:30 pm

Even Gigi herself admits she’s not white despite looking white and had trouble in the modeling industry for being a woc. Palestinians are not white, no one considers them to be white. Now leave me alone, I’m not going to agree with you.

ashash November 11, 2015 at 5:46 pm

Do you have a source for this?

ashash November 11, 2015 at 5:53 pm

I looked up interviews where Gigi referred to herself as a woman of color and could find none. She is a woman of color, I guess, but I have a hard time believing she had trouble in the modeling industry. She has the stereotypical look of what they look for in their average model (tall, blonde, colored-eyes). Plus, her mother was a model, her father is a renowned real estate agent, and her stepfather is a music producer. Gigi is only 20 and already a famous model. Before that, she was a child model, getting lots of work. It doesn’t seem like she’s struggling to me (at all). In fact, she is better off than most (white) models.

sparkles180 February 5, 2016 at 6:51 pm

Ashash You’re wrong. It sounds like your making stuff up so you’ll feel better. The modeling industry doesn’t hire people based on having blonde hair or blue eyes – that would count as discrimination. They hire based on body figure and height. From the way it looks, there’s more dark haired models then blondes in the industry.

sparkles180 February 5, 2016 at 6:25 pm

That first sentence was a typo, what I ment was… Even Gigi herself admits she had trouble in the modeling industry also she’s not white despite looking white because she’s still a woc.

I’m not saying she struggled cause of her background(it was worded wrong) I’m saying I read that she struggled and here’s the article on it, thats all. Apparently it was due to her figure. Also here’s the article on how she struggled in the modeling industry.

http://ca.complex.com/style/2015/08/gigi-hadid-struggles-finding-agent-labeled-fat

Anyway my point from the previous comments was, it’s wrong to disacknowledge her palestinian side which is something a lot of users are doing on here.

stonelord November 1, 2015 at 11:11 am

so what ARE Palestinians, Sparkles? They aren’t black,they are not Chinese/Japanese etc. No such thing as an ‘Arab race’ as an anthropologist will tell you.

sparkles180 November 2, 2015 at 12:51 am

Arabs are generally brown. Even white arabs have family relatives that are brown, in some families you’ll have two cousins one is white and one is brown but they are related. Sometimes two white arabs end up having a brown arab kid. The same way how the japanese are asian but some japanese people look very white yet aren’t, some arabs look very white but aren’t because arabs don’t have the same genetics as white europeans.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_(racial_classification)

Also don’t bother forcing your view on me. Most people in america don’t consider her to be fully white, she’s half white she’s not a fully white european girl.

sparkles180 February 5, 2016 at 6:20 pm

Actually arab can count as a race. Look up the dictionary definition of race – it’s pretty much a group of people that hold certain physical/regional/historical similarities.

sparkles180 September 26, 2015 at 11:15 pm

Her skin is white but her ethnicity is not white, she’s middle eastern. Having a different skin pigment doesn’t change or erase ones ethnicity. :)

Capricious October 11, 2015 at 5:00 am

Um, white isn’t an ethnicity. It’s a race.

sparkles180 October 24, 2015 at 3:13 pm

Race* That’s what I ment, typo.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 4:28 pm

White is a skin color, not a race. Caucasian is a race.

sparkles180 February 5, 2016 at 6:17 pm

cwm85 White counts as a race. You need an education. Here is the dictionary definition:

Race
A group of people identified as distinct from other groups because of supposed physical or genetic traits shared by the group.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/race

neiltennant October 12, 2015 at 10:14 am

sparkles you are an idiot

did you see her dad ? he looks very white

he is blue eyed and blonde arab

sparkles180 October 24, 2015 at 3:33 pm

I saw her dad, he looks like a typical arab person, he has dark features, large nose and eyes. I saw japanese guys more white looking them him. He doesn’t look white and if you think that’s how white people look then your being racist to white people. The only idiot here is you.

andrew October 24, 2015 at 6:06 pm
sparkles180 October 24, 2015 at 11:21 pm

He looks middle eastern to me. It’s called perspective, don’t agree with me? Then leave me alone. Look at his features, his eyes and nose give it away, he has a hooked nose which is a common arab feature. His natural hair is black but he dyed it blonde then let it grey. He has the same nose as this guy http://weekly.ahram.org.eg/Media/NewsMedia/2013/7/17/2013-635096644846932692-693_resized.jpg

http://i.imgur.com/LKBaq.png

http://cdn.cnwimg.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Mohamed-Hadid.png

Also he’s full arab, his genetics is not white no matter how white he appeals. Some people from Afghanistan and Japan look fully white but genetically aren’t. Looking like a race doesn’t make you a race, it’s your genetics. Same with this lady and her dad, their genetics is not white, but they may appear white. They are not European or get classified as White American, they even admit it.

andrew October 25, 2015 at 3:40 am

whatever his genetic make-up is, he still doesn’t look Middle Eastern, I’m sorry.

sparkles180 October 25, 2015 at 10:56 am

Andrew this is the third time you’re forcing you’re view on me. No he looks arab, I’m entitled my own opinion not you. Telling me he’s not isn’t going to change how I see him. Also if you won’t leave me alone then I’ll have you reported for harassment. Sorry.

marjanel March 1, 2016 at 1:49 pm

Dark features? Blue eyes are not dark feauture.

cwm85 October 12, 2015 at 11:12 am

She’s white you moron sparkles1980 the fuck is your problem?

lelo4 October 19, 2015 at 6:27 pm

So what, she’s still fully Caucasian.

sparkles180 October 24, 2015 at 2:55 pm

I’m not an idiot, looking white does not make someone white european like someone has previously stated, you guys are an idiot and your views are racist to white people. The american census does not categorize her under white, she is mixed race. Also Caucasian doesn’t mean white, it’s a type of facial structure. Why do you guys want her to be white so badly? Also I saw her dad he has typical middle eastern features, he doesn’t look white at all. She’s half middle eastern/half european and falls under poc due to her being middle eastern.

cwm85 October 24, 2015 at 5:46 pm

She’s white! Sorry but she is. You seem so disappointed. Her race is Caucasian. Middle eastern is not a race.

sparkles180 October 24, 2015 at 11:36 pm

Even after I told you to leave me alone you didn’t. It’s always the same people saying she’s white at the same time. It’s obvious you got multiple accounts. I never said it’s a race, quit putting words in my mouth. You’re the one that feels the need to insult me and force your views onto me, only you are disappointed. I’m part Japanese myself and Japanese people do not consider them to be white, the truth is most people outside the middle east don’t. My white side do not consider them white either. No one in my city will consider them white, there’s millions of white people here. Why are you forcing your views onto me? No she’s not white, no one except her mom is white and I’m not going to change my opinion. I don’t know a single white person that considers them white.

Newsflash: Not everyone in life with agree with you, everyone will view things differently and have a different opinion. There’s no such thing as a wrong opinion. Don’t like my opinion? Then f u c k off.

stonelord November 1, 2015 at 11:13 am

yes, caucasian goes on your head shape and MIDDLE EASTERN PEOPLE HAVE THAT HEAD SHAPE. LooK it up, not far to look. Where do you think Europeans came from originally anyway–they came from the near/middle east thousands of years ago. Hence we have similar heads and DNA

cwm85 October 24, 2015 at 3:12 pm

Middle eastern is not a race… but a region in the continent of earth…

sparkles180 October 24, 2015 at 3:27 pm

Cwm85, By your logic european is just a place..NOT. Are you middle eastern? Why do you want me to adhere to your views and agree that middle easterners are white? Socially they’re “brown”, if they were oh so white then they would be treated much differently in america but they aren’t because they are completely different then your typical white american in terms of looks, culture, attire, language etc. Majority of americans don’t consider middle eastern folks to be white, we all know that so quit putting false labels. I don’t consider her to be a typical white american and most white people don’t, I’m not going to change my views.The only reason gigi looks white is cause of her mothers side, this doesn’t make her white cause her dad isn’t white. This is how the majority of palestinians look, these are pictures from their protests….

Do Palestinians look white? No, most of them look “brown”. Gigi is half palestinian which makes her mixed race and non-white woc. Now quit harassing me and stop forcing your views down my throat.

No such thing as ‘brown’ except in childish tirades. Look up a serious anthropological study, why don’t you?

cwm85 November 1, 2015 at 6:25 pm

Thank you smh…

sparkles180 November 2, 2015 at 1:05 am

Stonelord and cmw5 are both the same users. You guys replied at the same time and day and you’re both harassing me saying the same things.

Socially there is a brown race today, it is commonly used as a racial identifier. The anthropology studies you’re referring too are quite outdated, before it was never a classification but it is now. When described in criminal acts they usually state the race, white, black, brown…. Also it doesn’t matter what you belief, most people consider middle eastern people as brown and they are not white europeans.

Obviously you are middle eastern that so badly wants to be classified as white, you’re not. No one else cares what my opinion is but you do way too much. I’m not going to change my opinion. End of story and leave me alone.

cwm85 November 11, 2015 at 8:45 am

She’s white… get over it. Look at this woman… no one thinks she is black, mix, native, asian… etc… she has blonde hair and blue eyes and fair skin. Her dad looks typical European Caucasian. Whether you like or it or whomever she is white.

midori29 November 11, 2015 at 7:14 am

On the U.S census I thought middle easterners, and arabs were considered white.?

midori29 November 11, 2015 at 7:20 am

I guess not

fuzzybear44 November 11, 2015 at 9:23 am

@midori29

They are consider white on the census. However being treated as white is another story. The Arab campaign (M.E.N.A ) is trying to get that white status removed by 2020

ashash November 11, 2015 at 5:55 pm

@sparkles180, I don’t see the obsession in arguing about whether or not someone is “white,” which is a social construct and abstract.

sparkles180 February 5, 2016 at 7:02 pm

I don’t see the point in you trying to convince me she’s white european, maybe you need to stop forcing your views onto others?

All I did was state my opinion, it’s people like you telling me what to think then begin the arguments until I agree with you.

cwm85 August 24, 2015 at 12:31 pm

I think you all have this image that her father looks like a dark indian Muslim. Her dad is European. Caucasian who is an arab. Lots of arabs are part of the Caucasian race.

Gurrl August 25, 2015 at 7:29 pm

” Her dad is European. Caucasian who is an arab. ” That makes no sense, and people from the Middle East are not European. They are Caucasian though and many can have Caucasian features such as coloured eyes/hair which all Caucasians can have-not just Europeans. (her father has blue eyes, but he obviously has that mediterranean look which she lacks, she looks very Dutch.)

cwm85 August 25, 2015 at 8:41 pm

Her father is Caucasian. Caucasians aren’t only from Europe… middle east has them too. Middle east just describes people from middle east. Many of them are from the Caucasian race but many will not want to admit that. Like the prime minister of Israel is Caucasian. So is her dad. He is not indian, asian, african, he is of Caucasian orgin

sparkles180 September 26, 2015 at 11:10 pm

I agree with Gurll, she’s middle eastern not european and looking “white” doesn’t erase her middle eastern side.

ashash September 27, 2015 at 12:31 am

Her mother is Dutch.

sparkles180 September 26, 2015 at 11:01 pm

She’s not european, she’s middle eastern, also indians aren’t muslim they tend to be hindus. Looking white doesn’t make someone white. I know a white looking girl from pakistan but she’s genetically still not white, her culture is still middle eastern and she has brown genetics, same with gigi hadid, she’s white looking but not white. Also her dad looks pretty middle eastern, his nose and facial features give it away. Also caucasian doesn’t mean white/european it refers to a type of skull structure. Caucasian covers everyone from sweden to north africa to sri lanka, even very dark looking people are classified as caucasian. She’s caucasian but not white european. Pretty much it’s inaccurate to call her white european or use the term caucasian to describe white people.

cwm85 September 27, 2015 at 8:41 am

She is Caucasian.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 2:22 pm

Middle eastern is not a race! Its a region in the world… this woman is Caucasian. European and her dad is muslim, Palestine. But he is Caucasian too. Religion is not someone’s race. Arabs can but Caucasians too. Arabs are more of a culture than ethnic groups.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 2:32 pm

People from the middle east are called middle eastern, people from asia are called asian. Also Caucasian is an outdated term to describe white people. You’re the biggest idiot on here cwm85, you know that? Obviously you’re a butthurt middle eastern.

marjanel March 1, 2016 at 1:52 pm

Tyler Middle Eastern are also Asían.It is not about how they are called, Americans are the worse to define people that considered hispanic to be a race.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 2:18 pm

LOl Wtf is a Indian muslim? Indians are hindus. Arabs are brown and muslim. She’s still muslim so stop clumping them with white european people.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 3:36 pm

You’re a fucking moron. And need a lesson on race and culture.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 3:41 pm

Caucasians are not just white European people you ignoramus. The Caucasian race is more diverse than what Americans think. People in Iraq, syria and other middle people and north african are part of the Caucasian race too. That means in isreal… let me guess you think jews aren’t white too even if they are white as snow and blonde haired. The world view is one of narrow view on race. Caucasian people don’t just exist in Europe, America, south America, Canada… etc… smh… people really need to read a Damn book and not just listen to what ya narrow minded racist say.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 4:05 pm

Anyone of European descent is white, people in the middle east are not of European descent and have a completely different genetic makeup then white europeans, they are arabc, berbers etc. This is why they aren’t white. Also Indians are not muslim, and people from Iraq on average are light brown-skinned not white.

The only uneducated person here is you.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 4:08 pm

Berbers are Caucasians. Didn’t say white. But Caucasians. White people aren’t the only Caucasians on earth.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 4:12 pm

So you agree with me she’s not white. Good.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 3:57 pm

Wow cwm85 you’re quite unmannered, immature and uneducated. Did you really need to call me a “moron”? I never said Caucasians are white europeans, I’m actually telling you that are aren’t You didn’t read what I wrote. You’re clearly uneducated with anti-white hatred and strong racist views. You need an education on white people and white culture. Also I’ll be reporting you, I noticed you’ve already called 4 people on this site an idiot.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 4:04 pm

You called cursed at me and I fought back. So you get what you deserve asshole.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 4:05 pm

Nice, how about I print screen this and send it in as online harassment? You’re close to getting banned.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 4:07 pm

I never cursed at you, i asked a question. You’re the one that called me an, let me repet…”asshole”, “moron.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 4:05 pm

You called me and idiot so I fought back. Report me. I can report you too asswipe. And I’m not middle eastern. Middle eastern is not a race.

cwm85 October 25, 2015 at 4:07 pm

I don’t care what you do. You called me out of my name and I fought back. I will screen shot you for calling me a fucking idiot. So report me. I have reported you.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 4:11 pm

Let me repeat….You harassed multiple users on this website. It’s not just me reporting you.

Tyler October 25, 2015 at 4:15 pm

Also I never called you an idiot, you called me an idiot LOL You’re making crap up, the mods check exactly what people wrote so your excuse won’t work.

sparkles180 August 17, 2015 at 1:55 am

She doesn’t look dutch to me though, she looks more southern european, doesn’t look middle eastern at all. I thought she was fully white but shes only 50% and actually very ethnic.

Connerfromvine August 25, 2015 at 12:14 pm

That is a photo of her mother, her stepfather, and her sister. I’m not sure if you think that’s her biological father but it is definitely not.

cwm85 August 25, 2015 at 5:10 pm

Her dad looks white. She is white.

sparkles180 September 26, 2015 at 11:06 pm

She’s not white of european descent, she’s still middle eastern. Looking white doesn’t make someone white, it’s your genetics as well. Also I saw her dad and he looks very non-white, even her brother has middle eastern features. She still has half her dads genetics despite looking different, it may not show but it is part of her and will show up down the line. She’s not white for sure.

sparkles180 August 17, 2015 at 1:28 am

Interesting, she looks like a typical white girl but shes not. I guess her dutch genes were stronger. Her dad looks very ethnic though and her last name gives her muslim side away.

Manila August 6, 2015 at 12:32 am
neiltennant July 11, 2015 at 6:52 am

nothing exotic on her

the dutch is predominant

Most dutch people are blonde and do have blue eyes

Dutch are ancient german tribes

Capricious April 4, 2015 at 1:00 am

Gorgeous woman. She’s got the exotic features of Middle East and the angelic beauty of Europe.

Girll April 4, 2015 at 3:35 am

She looks very Dutch to me. I don’t see any “exotic” features of her father.

Capricious April 4, 2015 at 6:19 am

Look at her lips, bushy eyebrows and nose.

Yes, I believe that most of her beautiful features are Dutch though – eye colour, face shape, cheeks….

ashash April 5, 2015 at 11:40 am

Bushy eyebrows are exclusive to the Middle East?

sparkles180 August 17, 2015 at 1:39 am

She looks like the average white girl. I don’t see anything middle eastern. She went on her moms side. All of her sisters look very ethnic though also her kid might look more ethnic then her because shes not actually white. Genetics can be funny like that.

loganthefourth February 23, 2015 at 4:12 pm

I wouldve thought half Latina she kinda looks like Fergie and fergie is half Mexican

ashash March 25, 2015 at 11:44 am

Fergie is not half Mexican. She has no Mexican heritage. She’s just a WASP.

bohochic850 April 9, 2015 at 1:20 pm

Actually Fergie has said that she does have Mexican “strains.” I’m not sure what that means but I’m assuming she has Mexican or Spanish in her. She also said in an interview that she has some Native American in her as well. So she is not a WASP.

sarahle February 9, 2015 at 10:59 am

“palestinian”… ?
israel or “palestinian territories”

Girll March 14, 2015 at 12:34 pm

Palestinian people exist. And Many Arabs lived in Israel for many generations before the current day Israeli settlers.

sarahle April 4, 2015 at 7:59 am

yes, arabs have lived there, but there have never been arabs called “palestinians”!
its just an invention (by arafat) to have a tool to go in a war with the jewish state.
arabs came to israel for work then and stayed in the region. arabs surnames indicate their real local roots.
israeli arabs are welcome and respected in israel. calling themselves “palestinian” is just a provocation.

Girll April 4, 2015 at 5:26 pm

Okay there was no official Country called Palestine but i’m sure the Arabs identify themselves Palestinians because their ancestors lived in a certain geographical area for centuries.
I doubt every single person who calls themselves a Palestinian is just doing it to annoy Jews. It’s just their identity.

follers April 4, 2015 at 11:13 pm

The term “Palestinian” has historically been used simply to identify residents of that specific region (including Jews). The term was invented by a Greek in the 5th century BCE, when the population there was majority Jewish.

The term “Palestinian” was taken on by Arab nationalists living in that area in the early 20th century, and that’s the meaning it’s commonly held since.

Half the population of Jordan is Palestinian, and, appropriately enough, their future king Hussein, Crown Prince of Jordan is half-Palestinian himself (and one quarter English).

Girll April 5, 2015 at 5:36 am

Well i read somewhere some Palestinians share genetic connections to Jews.

Derp.

alexandra95 February 9, 2015 at 4:02 am

Oh , sorry. i havn’t heard thats an ethnic group ,”palestinians”? its an invention .. its definately not an ethnic group and her ancestors are probably egyptian\jordanian or mixed with other greeks\itaians .

shobohunter February 10, 2015 at 6:19 pm

You can find Egyptian and jordanian people with
greeks\itaians ancestry far up in their arses . You know, if you know Jack about middle eastern history you probably never would have puked that stupid shit. They’ve heavily basterdize by many group of people
And then do you believe in Russian Jew, Indian Jew Japanese jews (etc) are the rightful owner of that fucking place and are stupid lost tribesmen of fucking Israel, because your primative religious books tells you that.

Palestinian ethnicity is code word for native people of that region.

alexandra95 February 24, 2015 at 4:24 pm

If someone here doesnt know jack about middle eastern history is you. A jew are jew . is doesnt metter if they are from russia\morroco\india. my parents are russian jews and i have dark skin and dark hair and guess what ? jews are the rightful owner of ISRAEL. yeah . ISRAEL not a fucking invention called palestine . BTW its not the fucking bible who says that , its a known historical fact and tons of genetic research.
dont have anything against israeli arabs , but dont call them in a made up stupid name , thanks:)
