SHE looks arabian

reminds me of lebanese or tunesian women

additionally to this she reminds of friends of mine who are itaiian from sicily


this woman looks like her she is lebanese

andrew June 3, 2018 at 12:26 pm


Maybe a brownish version of her

neiltennant June 4, 2018 at 2:55 pm

yes indeed

but also kat dennings is a paler version of stefani

bablah August 25, 2017 at 4:27 pm

Antonio Stefani->Antonio Angelo Stefani
He and his wife were from Vignanello, Lazio.
Elvira’s father was Salvatore Olivieri.

neiltennant December 30, 2015 at 7:16 am

She looked like the girl from TWO BROKE GIRLS

HMMM she is one of the few with those dark eyes and blonde hair not looking ridiculus

JoshG October 25, 2015 at 12:41 pm

Whatever happened to her?

andrew October 4, 2015 at 3:24 pm

Gwen’s great-grandfather Francesco Di Paola, a peasant, was born c. 1885 in Colle Sannita, Province of Benevento, Campania, Italy, to Rocco Di Paola and Maria. His wife’s name was Libera Antonia Marino.

She’s so beautiful. I thought she was full Italian though.

She’s one of the few dark-eyed girls who can pull off a blonde her btw.

xoxo November 19, 2015 at 2:13 pm

She’s alright looking.

athelya November 19, 2015 at 2:50 pm

I have a norwegian friend with naturally blonde hair and brown eyes. You’re telling me her natural coloration doesn’t suit her?

neiltennant January 2, 2018 at 10:20 am

thats nearly impossible that a full Norwegian has virtually black eyes !

neiltennant August 23, 2016 at 5:47 pm

me too i thought she is only italian on father and mothers side

but that is impossible in the USA due to intermarriages ethnically

Check7t August 26, 2014 at 11:15 am

Citing this source for WP as her current ancestry is wrong.

tatiana January 20, 2014 at 7:40 am

i think another celebrity you should add to your website is a famous artist named Zachary Castillo. he is an amazing artist and he would look amazing on your website

shobohunter August 15, 2014 at 11:48 pm

moor were arab Muslim. your name should be West African. .tribal

fuzzybear44 August 16, 2014 at 3:26 am


Arab was and is a cultural identity.There were black,white,and even Asian Arabs. Secondly,the population was called moor,long before the Arabs came.Also there are Muslims all over west Africa.

the punisher December 7, 2013 at 2:02 am

No cause that is what she looks like otherwise she would look like Phia Toscano

the punisher December 7, 2013 at 2:04 am

or like ariana grande

andrew December 7, 2013 at 6:49 am

what can you ever know from your Colombian ghetto

the punisher December 7, 2013 at 1:17 pm

I’m not Colombian since your so obsess with my ethnicity why don’t you reveal yours unless your ashamed of your race

andrew December 7, 2013 at 3:58 pm

you said in Isaiah Washington section: “I had no Idea there where a lot of black people in Texas, I think there are more their than in Cali”.

my race? white.

the punisher December 7, 2013 at 6:03 pm

WTF are you talking about You don’t make sense

the punisher December 7, 2013 at 6:04 pm

Great joke, Your defenetly not white

andrew December 7, 2013 at 6:20 pm

why did you mention Cali, that is a Colombian town? About me, I’m white, yes.

follers December 7, 2013 at 8:24 pm


the punisher December 7, 2013 at 10:12 pm

I meant California dumbass, And you’re Not white! give it up already your probably someone who has race issues

andrew December 8, 2013 at 6:20 am

Cali for California? Excuse me but I’ve never heard something like that. And yes, I’m white. Very white. Now that it’s winter in Europe I am sooo white

the punisher December 8, 2013 at 2:24 pm

You never heard California called Cali before that’s because you live there or your living in the moon or something, Nobody believes your white buddy your not convincing no one you’re probably black who has race issues

andrew December 8, 2013 at 3:19 pm

Cali at Urban Dictionary:

1: One of the most important cities of Colombia

2: An annoying name for California.

excuse me I’m not American (and not black lol) and I didn’t know that slang form, but I am not the only one as I read here

the punisher December 8, 2013 at 6:13 pm

As you saw in the article young people aka students called it Cali maybe your just old or old fashion anyways I call it Cali, And stop already with the white thing nobody believes you, You may not be black but sure as hell you Ain’t white

andrew December 9, 2013 at 5:12 am

I’m older than you probably. And I’m white. Nobody gives a fuck about that. I am not famous

Cali or California, it doesn’t change much. You can’t pretend to know a whole ethnic group just because you have seen someone of a certain heritage on tv.

the punisher December 9, 2013 at 3:11 pm

Your just dying to be white but you are not

andrew December 9, 2013 at 3:51 pm

Right, I’m not white. You told this woman is not “enough white”. If she’s not white, I can’t be white.

the punisher December 9, 2013 at 4:07 pm

Let me tell you something if you where white you wouldn’t be arguing with me here, White people don’t give a fuck about ethnicity that much like other races do especially does races that are insecure or ashamed of theirs

Germanchick67 January 29, 2014 at 5:49 pm

Lol from what you say here and in other pages you are clearly a mixed-black person,you are trying too hard to prove that you are white,you are a wannabe! You just trying to say that half of europe which is western aren’t white,that means that you are clearly a non-european person! And as a white person andrew seems very white to me,he doesnt know that you call california cali because he is a white-European! lol we are europeans not americans! nice try tho,next time try to become another race but your race which is probably black suits you better,no hate!

the punisher December 3, 2013 at 10:07 pm

Many of the Italians you show me look Turkish/Pakistani/Lebanese /Algerians

andrew December 4, 2013 at 5:25 am

anything else? Not really.

Any Turkish/Pakistani/Lebanese/Algerians citizen is anthopologically White/Caucasian and considered White/Cauciasian by American Census. Pakistani are considered “South Asians” in UK, if I’m not wrong.

the punisher December 4, 2013 at 1:39 pm

Yeah! They are considered White but are they really White? I don’t think so, they might be Indo Europeans But they sure as hell don’t look white

andrew December 4, 2013 at 2:44 pm

they are anthropologically white/caucasian/Europoid. It’s science. No matter what you think.

the punisher December 4, 2013 at 4:00 pm

I bet white people don’t consider them white and at the end of the day that’s what really matters being considered white not some science bull crap

guurl December 4, 2013 at 4:31 pm

They are not European but they are Caucasian. Europeans are white. Not all Caucasians are European/white. And not all Europeans are pale, as some southern Europeans can get tans.

rajaredhilu December 7, 2013 at 9:58 am

no they are caucasian stock, meaning they are mostly caucasian but have possibly a little mongoloid or even negroid thrown in, but pakistanis are australoid mixed caucasian

Danyyy December 3, 2013 at 9:47 pm

She looked way much pretier when she didn`t so much make up on:

And she looks Italian to me.

LL December 2, 2013 at 5:13 pm

She actually looks really italian to me… come to Italy, you’ll see with your eyes how “caucasian” we look.
By the way you must have a problem with italians, since you’re commenting on every celeb with an italian ancestry. Don’t you have anything better to do in your life than spreading useless racism?

the punisher December 2, 2013 at 6:23 pm

Don’t kid yourself she looks Scottish, Irish, English, Norwegian, German and that’s it Want to see a real Italian go check out ray romano

andrew December 3, 2013 at 5:28 am
the punisher December 3, 2013 at 11:47 am

I wish you show me pictures of regular Italians walking down the street, You know the Italians that are everyday in the streets Let’s see if they look anything like the ones you show me

derp December 6, 2013 at 11:48 pm

You are a moron punisher. Ray Romano is in no way a typical Italian in appearance. Go to Italy, if you can afford it and you will see what Italians look like. Ray Romano has mixed features, and in no way looks typical Italian. Maybe stereotypical.

theropod June 26, 2013 at 1:25 am

She’s got beautiful eyes.

Brown eyes don’t really go well with blonde hair, but her eyes just blend perfectly with her hair.

She is like Italian and Eastern European combo looking to me – exotic but still possessing light features.

neiltennant May 14, 2013 at 4:00 am

only her eyes confirm that she is italian

brown/dark eyes in norway is very rare

100 years ago there werent norwegians with brown eyes,

thanks to immigration of other ethnicities brown eyes are not so rare nowadays in norway

nnnnn May 24, 2013 at 1:04 am

There are norvegians with brown eyes, and what has Norway to do with Stefani, if she is 1/16?????
BTW,Do you believe, that peroxide blond is her real hair color?

MettaWorkPlease November 3, 2013 at 11:17 pm

She’s 50% Italian. The other percentages are shared by Norwegian, German, English etc. and she identifies more with the Italian side. More people would say she’s mostly of Italian heritage with some Norwegian, English etc

Daisuke November 14, 2012 at 5:10 pm

She is a Norwegian-American woman!!!!

nnnnn May 24, 2013 at 1:05 am

No, she’s not. And your government would never recognise her as norwegan.

sashafierce564 July 7, 2012 at 10:53 pm

Very gorgeous!

gwen stefani, who was also very successful as a solo singer
(she sold more than 5,000,000 albums in the us alone with her two studio albums)

looks very italian

more italian than irish/scottich

her brown nearly black eyes are typical for italians,

I love you, Roger Scientist March 22, 2012 at 8:49 pm

Christian, get a life.

Gwen Stefani is freaking gorgeous. I love her music. When I was younger, I always thought she was partially Native American for some reason…what can I say. I was a kid.

Angantyr October 2, 2011 at 1:28 am

People see to think that a lot about Gaelic people… such as Kyle MacLachlan!

al12 June 29, 2011 at 4:52 pm

Gwen’s an awesome performer. Miss her and no doubt, can’t wait for them to come back with their new record. I would honestly say that she’s mostly got that typical “Irish look” to her- not saying that non-Irish people can’t have it. When I was in Dublin I saw a lot of people had similar facial features like Gwen such as light skin and some others which are just too hard to explain. Didn’t know she was Italian tho as well :S.

sales tips December 21, 2010 at 5:31 am

Just what I needed, thanks a lot.

sound_soldier November 21, 2010 at 6:41 am

Her Italian father looks a little Turkish. He’s probably of Venetian descent. The regions Vèneto and Friuli was ruled by Turkishs before.

Dio November 23, 2010 at 3:12 pm

Turks had no influence on Italian genetics whatsoever.

sound_soldier November 25, 2010 at 12:52 pm

However, in the region of my Italian grandfather (Lazio South), near to Gaeta, it’s said that there’s a lot of Italians of Turkish heritage. It’s why all churches are Byzantine style!!

Moreover, some Italians have Etruscan descent and Etruscans would come from Lydia in Turkey !!

unknown April 10, 2011 at 3:46 pm

it’s not true about turkish in gaeta, my grandfather is from there aswell!

Sound_Soldier April 11, 2011 at 12:25 pm

Sorry if you don’t agree with me but I say what people told me and what I have observed. Moreover, I ever visited Gaeta and his region because my grand father is from Roccasecca. One of his Italian friends said to me once that there are some Italians of Turkish and Albanian heritage in the region. I visited an abbay near Gaeta which was marked by the Turkish invasion, I advise you to see the famous grotta del Turco. Before, a lot of Turkishs settled in the South Lazio.

Vin June 30, 2011 at 5:47 am

Byzantine and Turkish are two different things. Byzantines were Greek. Turks came later. Etruscans were even earlier and also not Turkish.

Angantyr October 2, 2011 at 1:31 am

”Byzantine” style has little to do with Turkic peoples, it is a Greek style developed in the Eastern Roman ”Byzantine” Empire. Etruscans are not from Lydia, either, but Lydians are.

Either way, the Turkish ethnic group did not arrive in the area until well after the periods you are talking about. They are an Altaic group from Central Asian. The inhabitants of what is now Turkey were Greeks, Lydians, Neo-Hittites etc. before their migration.

A lot of racists congregate on this blog/site it seems…

wtf September 10, 2011 at 6:33 pm

Creole bitch youre a fucking idiot.first off if youre “creole” you got white in your genes retard second white people make pretty fucking legendary music! Third “black” music has basically turned to shit after the 90’s so please shut the fuck up and jump off a bridge.thanks.

Angantyr October 2, 2011 at 1:33 am

All music has turned to shit, though.

And the colour-coding of music is a little silly anyway, so Creole Baby is even more stupid.

ferret June 26, 2010 at 11:57 am

To Fuzzybear
Thanks for the reply it’s always something I kept in the back of my mind. I’ll need to research it and in the future I’ll try to leave a answer on this board if it still exists. Like you said probably a combination of things.

anonymous June 24, 2010 at 5:20 am

A gentle reply to Fuzzybear

This board is getting messy and can’t tell if I’m responding to you or anon, so I’ll make it for both and very respectful. If you reread some of the things I wrote I was slamming the Italians with the most vulgar language to get my point across about stereotyping. You may be a bit naive (meaning innocent lack of knowledge) about some of the slandering against Italians. The Tar brush was directed at Italians not blacks so I’ll opolagize for any misunderstandings About that. I will still obstinate however about everone being the same race but I think you will concur that we’re all human. Also blood types, there are only about 4 major blood types best of my knowledge, mine being AB negative. I’m sure there are blood experts out there feel free to contribute I’m willing to learn as long as who ever keeps it civil.. Some of the people you’ve mentioned in your last reply, yes I’ve heard of some and more than realize the phenotypes and differences in the caucasoid race. I’m getting tired so please excuse typos. and A white person like me and many others don’t get offended about the fact that all races will have a common ancestor when going far enough back. But even the “experts” can’t agree on it. Be it only one hundred thousands years, about the last ice age which is nothing or a million. If they can’t tell there’s no way for you and I to Know. Please take care.

ethnic June 24, 2010 at 8:01 am

some heavy discussion going on here.

BTW Please dont use anonymous as a name. Anything is better than that.


anonymous June 24, 2010 at 2:08 pm

I’m sorry you feel that way, so if I have offended you I’m sorry . Hmmm, let me think, I know! How about ferret, but don’t expect everyone to catch on the change that fast.

ethnic June 24, 2010 at 7:44 pm

ferret is good.

anonymous June 24, 2010 at 1:29 am

Let me try attack this stereotypical nonsense from a different angle in a heart felt way. Now I’ve defended the Italians tenaciously or slammed them depending on your view point. When I see some of the slandering of them, yeah I feel compelled to get defensive. I wouldn’t expect anything less from any other group. Now everyone can call me acrimonious and misanthropic but I’m honest.
Irish and Sottish actors are also listed on this celebrity web sight or just look up some of these actors. Now before someone jumps my ass, I know people they are caucasian and white. Robbie Coltrane, Sheena Easton, Sean Connery, Colin Farrrell, Stephen Rea and my favorite Jolene Blalock. These people are hardly fair or pal but rather dark. When I first saw Jolene Blalock on Star Trek (t’pol) my breath was taken away. I said to myself (sigh) that’s the girl I want to marry. Yeah I know people she’s married to an millionaire and nobody here including myself would get the time of day or a snowball chance in hell with this hot babe. Jolene Blalock’s surname means black hair in Celtic or Gaelic, I read this when looking up her info.
Now what I did not think was, O.K what is she or should I get in her face and ask what are you. Certainly not go into a chat room like this and scrutinize this human being. The same typical nonsense, are you a guinea girl? Or you have some feature that makes you look like this or that. Truth is I was stiff as a broom handle for a week because of this dark Irish/Scottish beauty. I think that every one should get the same consideration I would give them.

Angantyr October 2, 2011 at 1:38 am

Though she is Irish, her name is NOT Gaelic, it is from English. ”Black” and ”Lock”.

She is just Gaelic, and judging by her lowland regional name, Inglis Scottish (from the traditionally English region of the Scottish lowlands). But would it matter if she is part, say, black? No, only to idiot racists.

She just looks Irish to me, though, somewhat generically so and she is not actually that dark. Her hair is a dark blond or light brown. But ”Black Irish” are common anyway and and no less Irish than non-Black Irish, they are just darker because they are from poorer working families.

redforever November 10, 2011 at 8:22 pm

Seriously? Poor working-class families? I take offence to that. Like we’re less than the “fair” Irish because our skin has a bit of a tan? Gouger. Next thing you know you’ll be degrading the gypsies. Snob.

anonymous June 22, 2010 at 9:07 am

This reply is for everyone to read especially Mr. fuzz who’s an expert about DNA and an bright intelligent W.A.S.P. I mean shit, How could this beautiful young women be Italian or even part wop. Where’s the EYE-talian features? Can somebody please explain to me why she is not twirling her oily Mario mustache, doesn’t have herself an wide ethnic schnoz with flaring nostrils with hair growing out her noise and ears? How come she doesn’t have a week chin with blubber rolls. Where’s that black dress? How come she doesn’t have a head full of thick prickly frizzy pubic hairs and of course an fat ass. Is she shaving her arms? Why is it she doesn’t have hair on her legs like course sand paper or an beard for that matter? I demand that someone tell me why she’s not on stage swinging through trees and peeling bananas with her feet like the Bronx zoo show! I mean shouldn’t EYE-talian women be staring on Jersey shore or an goooooomba whore in the Sopranos. I mean she’s just an dago right? I bet I could search on this web sight and someone will be slandering that Italian hottie Alyssa Milano as being hairy or something. One more thing Mr. fuzz, stop telling me what I need to do. I think non W.A.S.P people have been told what their needs are by your kind of W.A.S.P self righteous types for far to to long.

LOOOOOLL,you have some serious issues.Also,I don’t know what made you think I was a (W.A.S.P)

anonymous June 24, 2010 at 1:42 am

I don’t give a damn what you are, be it a W.A.S.P an Asian activist an African centrist, but your attitude certainly screams the average Anglo and your short reply tells me you have exhausted your arguments.

fuzzybear June 24, 2010 at 3:12 am

No,I just couldn’t stop laughing,you thinking I was white

anonymous June 24, 2010 at 4:24 am

thank you for a little honesty maybe a bitter black Muslim, certainly would explain things? Who’s your demigod, Jeremiah Wright??? LOL!!

anonymous June 20, 2010 at 11:04 pm

Of course you fucktards got it all figured out, don’t you? Everything considered northern European is fair and beautiful and everything Italian has got to have every fucking hideous dark shit feature this planet has to offer. Maybe you English/Anglo/Nordic/Aryans should get it through your thick neanderthal skulls and realize that you have more black DNA than any p.o.s Italian/wop/dago and all the other slurs you use while stuffing your fat useless “American” asses with pizza and spaghetti because of your slave trading for past 300 years or so, thanks to your your Shitish empire (oops, I mean British empire). Don’t let your pal asses fool you, modern DNA doesn’t lie like you all. So as your daughters, mothers, and sisters are gulping down a black man’s seed and cranking out half breeds that you so called English stock say your not, you can only boast how white you are and bring yourself up by putting some p.o.s wop down. By the way ladies and cavemen Italians are caucasian and no time in southern European history have they gotten hit with the tar brush the way North America and northern Europe are today.

fuzzybear June 21, 2010 at 12:30 am

You are sadly misinformed,that brush was working over time,and neither the white women or men at the time was complaining

anonymous June 21, 2010 at 8:49 pm

Learn to read your own damn language, will you? I never said that these women or men were complaining. In fact, people that consider themselves the true whites (Anglo types) are just blind to fact that the so called white countries (Northern Europe and North America) are in fact being hit with the tar brush today more than any time period in southern European history. So go ahead and call Italians all the ethnic slurs you want, just remember what the perceived DNA crap you might have floating in your blood.

fuzzybear June 22, 2010 at 12:06 am

To anonymous

Well first I know all about North Europe and American,and I don’t call the Italians anything.However I also know some of the things flowing around in the Southern European DNA,as well as what in mine.Now if you don’t like people insulting Italians,you need to stop with the tarbrush stuff

anonymous June 22, 2010 at 7:57 am

O.k fuzz, you don’t call Italians anything, yeah right. Also what do you know about an wops DNA. what, half monkey and Arab. And what of your DNA, pure clean wholesome W.A.S.P ? Ive heard everything there is in the handy English/Anglo ethnic joke book there is. As far as the tar brush comment, its so easy in this day in age to take the Anglo man’s Bible (the ethnic joke book) and pay them back with their own coin. Suck’s doesn’t it? As far as me not liking people calling wops ethnic slurs, go ahead everyone knock yourselves out but remember its getting easier in this day of age for the darky man to through shit right back in the Anglo’s mans face.

anon June 23, 2010 at 9:55 am

You are sadly misinformed… Sub-Sarahan African people have been mixing with the Italians longer than they have been mixing with the English and Irish Americans.
The Roman Empire DUHHH!!! The sheer number of black soldiers that were drafted in to the army meant that people were mixing left right and center. Northern Italy was a MULTICULTURAL society back then.
Not to mention the amount of times Sicily has been invaded by Africans and Asians. Im sorry to disappoint you but you will find that the Spanish, Italians, Portuguese and Sicilians are the most mixed people on the european continent.

anonymous June 23, 2010 at 5:41 pm

Hey dumb ass anon are you talking about the Italians or Romans? First off, Sub-Sarahan African region is below North Africa (where the blacks are) The Roman Empire only stretched out as far as North Africa therefore no blacks. As far as hordes of blacks and Asians invading Sicily, just an fantasy of yours. But yes I already know about the moorish, so don’t get all hot and bothered. Your British Empire and American slavery Empire therefore have been mixing it up with blacks a hell of a lot more than an wop or any other Southern European and made use of plenty of black soldiers. Duhhh!!! Also I never said that the tar brush didn’t hit Shitaly, so call off your attack dogs. So try looking up some modern DNA, not just some out dated bullshit like sickle cell anemia theory as some kind of comparison. There’s no black DNA in wops and very small amount of North African. Your average wop belongs to the Alpine race (Indo European). What next (old blue eyes) Frank Sinatra must be black. Matter of fact there were hardly any blacks in North Africa in the Roman empire. There are differences between wops and Arabs just like there’s an difference between Arabs and blacks. I bet dumb asses like you and Mr. fuzz must think Arabs must belong to the Negroid race just based on the fact that they are swarthy. One more thing stupid, North Shitaly isn’t the mixing pot like, lets say Sicily. After all when people think of the possibility of an blonde or an wonder bread wop they think only of north Shitaly. Also to burst your bubble, Modern DNA has found no traces of an Asian marker in wops unlike the northern Scandinavian countries. Ever heard of the Lapp people Dummy?

Wrong. The most mixed Europeans are Russians and Finns. Italians, Spanish and Greeks are barely mixed at all.

clyde December 29, 2011 at 1:08 pm

vin is correct- people are always trying to pass the spanish and italian off as “mixed people” when it is really the eastern europeans who have the most “mixed” genes… read about the hungarians/magyars for example, originally from central asia

This stereotypical shit has got to stop.

Steve, you’re absolutely correct, couldn’t agree more. That’s what I was trying to get across in my above piece, but to many dumb asses will misinterpret it when I should have had it dumb down like you did.

lola June 18, 2010 at 2:46 pm

i luv gwennie.. used to be her hugest fan ever. just saying, people from almost any country can have dark eyes.. her hair is naturally dark brown, which is common in a lot of countries, and yes there are blonde-haired ppl in italy, so i dont get why ya say she looks italian or not, they can look like any other caucasian person.

anonymous June 22, 2010 at 11:07 am

Hi Lola,
It seems to me that you’re the only other one besides me that makes any damn sense around here.
Thanx, anonymous

ronda s johnson of butte! June 10, 2010 at 7:33 am

being a big fan of gwens i have wondered for many years where she came from and who she is! i heard a rumor way back that she was an Indian from India. and after watching the luxurious video i was pretty confused! she almost looked hispanic! its wild that she is irish and scottish just like me! she gets the dark eyes from her itialian side i suppose! because i have light icey blues, and light natural blonde hair! good to know this info!!!♥♥♥

It’s called bleaching and toning, ever heard of any of that?

So, Irish or Scottish people can’t have dark eyes? xP

hellohello February 14, 2010 at 7:08 am

you can tell v easily i think that she has southern euro blood coz she has v dark eyes but doesnt stand out in that pic

ethnic February 1, 2010 at 1:30 am

i disagree, with a trained eye youll be able to tell where someone if from on most occasions even white people.

lisa January 31, 2010 at 1:01 pm

no offense to anyone but i wonder why blacks,indians, hispanics and other non-white ppl you can usually tell what part of Africa or south America etc. their from but w/ white you cant really tell cuz most of them look the same.

Paul. January 4, 2010 at 4:22 am

If she had darker hair, she’d look more Italian. She looks quite Irish/Scottish in that pic. :o

A lot do, but then again a lot have Irish and Jewish descent too.

amanitta December 7, 2009 at 10:04 pm

all celbs..well most of them as i see have ITALINA ‘blood’

sssss June 10, 2010 at 9:56 am

or Irish.

char August 5, 2009 at 5:45 am

The article never made any claim of her being of partial indian heritage….it stated that her fashions were influenced by indian culture. It was a sort of phase she was going through

ethnic August 1, 2009 at 7:11 pm

I dont really see the Indian in her and not much Italian either.

Paul. June 10, 2010 at 9:42 am

I’d love to see a picture of her parents.

zameena July 31, 2009 at 9:03 am

she actually have this indian look in her

char July 29, 2009 at 2:56 pm

well whatever she is…i admire her for her style and individuality. She is obviously a beautiful woman who is comfortable with herself, and that is what stands out.

First off, it’s only called Sub-Sarahan because that what the Europeans name it.Black people have never in history been confined to that area,I don’t know what you’ve been learning over there;but it’s wrong.Ancient historians all clearly tell you who was in north Africa,it’s obvious you know very little about the place.Also as far as the invasions go,your just in denial.Another thing like I said North Africa was black,but over time became mixed,that’s a fact.I could tell you some things about the place,but it probably would blow right past you.Once again your in denial about the Roman army,that army was very mixed.I understand you have a superiority complex,but that’s just sad.Also the Arabs were east African in origin,and Cushites were the rest anyone who’s educated will tell you that. Negroid is simply a phenotype that different groups of Africans have,but you don’t seem to know this.Also in the past (swarthy) meant black;your a victim of the new Education system or lack there of,they change words meaning to suit the times;but again you don’t know this.Now here’s one thing you should get into your head.No matter what color your skin,no matter what kind of phenotype or hair type you have,or however long your kind has lived where.Your ancient heritage is the same as everyone else.It leads you right back to the same tree,you say black people swing from

fuzzybear June 23, 2010 at 8:46 pm

meant to say Arabs were east african and Kushite in origin

anonymous June 24, 2010 at 12:42 am

Nope, I never said blacks were swinging from trees, that’s your stupidity taken something completely out of context. If you read carefully what I’m writing never once did I say an bad thing about blacks, I mean every person reading my ranting knows I’ve been slamming the Italians with a hatred that’s directed at them to make a point against stereotyping B.S. I’ve used Italians because I’m obviously part wop and to not offend lets say blacks or an Mexican. Now I got to deal with some one with an black agenda. People like you are saying Italians are black or part black because after all swarms of them invaded Sicily according to you, shows your arrogance. I mean it’s sad and clear you’re an African centrist with a political agenda, that’s the new Education system and yours that’s Your liberal college now a days. Now this may come as a shock to you but I’m all for promoting every group but not at the expense of dissing some one else or taking away credit from some one else. I don’t have superiority complex, I have a beef with people dissing the Italians, even you should be able to see my hidden agenda through all my ranting, I admit this. Now I know damn well about the moors invading Southern Europe so don’t have a heart attack.Go study some modern DNA not some politically correct African centrist trying to take credit for the Roman Empire.Your “ancient historians” writing can be interpreted to suite any ones political agenda just like the Bible. As far as Phenotype is concerned just because a black and white have the same blood type group doesn’t mean they are the same race, your Africans are a “genotype” different from the caucasian or mongloloid genotypes. So just because you got some over lapping “phenotype” characteristics from one race to the next doesn’t mean they are the same race. Therefore people of north Africa or Sub-Sarahan or what ever your term is are not black but caucasian because MODERN DNA says so. Though I’ll admit its stretching the rubber band definition of caucasian a bit. O.K smarty pants? I’m also curious about your Asian invasion on Sicily that never existed, other than some spice trading from China because of Marco Polo and what so called group of people mixed with black Africans to come up with modern day Arabs???? Your views on race also seem to be err-umm-well how should I say “black and white” There are different genotypes in Africa so stop saying every one is black. I just know that what ever your answer is its going to piss off a lot of people from the north African/Arab/ Middle eastern world or what ever your term is. Me I could care less at this point, so go knock yourself out. Now I’m not naive so I know you’re flipping through pages in your “ancient history” book to find some example of race mixing 5000 years ago and I believe you if you have something. But not at the magnitude your pushing. After all there wouldn’t be different races today. a friendly note don’t try to convince the Germans they’re black you’ll get a hell of a lot replies you wouldn’t, couldn’t handle. I actually like you. But if you do and get a swarm of shit thrown at you I may try to help you. So stop dissing me. I’m going to wright one more thing tonight and its not going to include blacks so don’t trying to drag it into one. capisce?

First if you wish to call me an Afrocentric,to make yourself feel better,that’s fine with me.Now how is me saying you have some African lineage(recent or ancient),taking away your cultural accomplishments?Liberal colleges,why because they tell the truth?Also I don’t know what MODERN DNA you’ve been looking at,but people have been mixing for thousands of years,back and forth;with continual invasions,back migration,being new DNA in all the time,There is (NO Different Race).Different blood types are brought on by a number of different reason,and are continuing to mutate(look at all the different colors of people today,especially in the black culture ).Also I read about that suppose 40%,since when is that a majority?This is the same thing they tried to apply to the Tutsi people,so like I said caucasian does not mean white.The same for thing for the East African caucasian,who they love to call dark white people,who are majority Sub-Saharan.Now you said not black,can you tell me what a black person is or looks like?Next,I never said anything about Asians,that was the other person.You’ve never heard of the Cushites or Kushites?Different Semitic speaking tribes assimilated with the Kushites who were already in the middle east(as it called today),then others showed up and mixed.Also I never said everyone in Africa was black,I don’t know where you saw that.I said the original people of North Africa were black,and that has been said continually by historians.The only reason it change,was because of all the white slave(mostly women) that were brought down into Africa,whom the black men had fun with,Roman invasion,colonial times etc.Also alot of my views as you say,I got from talking to north African people.Also they are the ones who confirmed that their Berber ancestors were black people,not nubian black,but black;their words not mine.

I didn’t see that (you like me part)before I wrote all this,so sorry. Alright,look I’m competitive so when someone says something to me i respond.The only reason I said anything to you in the first place was because of that (tar brush line),plus it was funny you thinking I was white.Now I’m not scared of any Germany,I can handle myself pretty well,but thanks for the concern.Also it’s black lineage,it can be (recent or ancient).I don’t understand why when you tell a white person that they get all upset,it doesn’t hurt them.It’s like me have white lineage,it doesn’t hurt,it makes me who I am.Oh well,I going to stop the debate with you,so don’t worry I not hiding in the shadows waiting to pounce.

Nope,you got me wrong.Before today,never heard of the man.I don’t follow anyone or do I hate anyone who’s not from the same culture I am.I just a guy who likes to study history,and when I see something I know is wrong,I say it.Also after what the Muslims help to do to the African Americans,Brazilians,and people of the Caribbean ,I would never call myself that

anonymous June 24, 2010 at 2:00 pm

Fuzzybear I’m not sure if you read my last post. This one I’m replying to is a little old. You will find that I made my peace with you and anon. This message board is getting sloppy and can’t tell who’s responding to me. I may still have reached an impasse with you and anon but there is a truce or cease fire. Again I’m not sure if you got the message but you’ll will see there’s no name calling on my part. Take care.

No problem truce,I like competition,although I didn’t use to;guess I getting weird .

One last thing,the last Ice age was about 10,000yrs ago,you knew I had to get the last word in,LOL

anonymous June 25, 2010 at 7:21 pm

Hi fuzzyBear

Your right the last big ice age melted away about that time and started something like 40,000 or 50,000 years ago, not sure. There were other big ice ages before going about 100,000 years back, but again not sure of all the exact times or severity. Just wondering since your hobby is studying African history did that last ice age melt happen to contribute to a more greener lush region in Egypt? Now I know during the ice age the sea level is lower because it’s obviously turned to ice(saw it on the history channel) but when it finally melted 10,000 years ago wouldn’t that run off contribute to a more greener lusher north Africa to support a large population to build the Pyramids about 5000 years ago I believe? Also I’ll be going back to work so I won’t be able to answer this thread much. Also one more thing, one of the other bloggers (Ethnic I think)here was busting my balls about my anonymous name so I conceded to his request and changed it to ferret after my beloved pets.

fuzzybear June 25, 2010 at 11:45 pm

To ferret

According to the experts,All of North Africa was green and fertile.However about 10,000yrs ago there was a climate shift which cause the desertification of North Africa.But to answer you question,I think it was a combination.The water levels definitely would have flooded the entire area,but the Nile River is most likely the main reason.
