Ethnicity: Ashkenazi Jewish

Her ethnicity needs to be removed. Jewish isn’t a race, it’s a religion.

Jewish isn’t a race, no, but it is both an ethnicity and a religious affiliation.

@ follers

is there any chance about a relation between her family and Malcolm Glazer? Also can you add Daniel Stern (the actor)? Thank you.

Not really, it’s pretty average.. At least for the women. It’s the Mediterranean genes.

(Not really, it’s pretty average.. At least for the women)

I think it depends on where you look

(It’s the Mediterranean genes.)

You mean a bunch of different groups mixing

@ lelo4

your attempts to whitewash MENA people, Turks and other West Asians are ridiculous.

TheHelper June 14, 2017 at 9:34 pm

You do know that Turks are White don’t you. Even Turks know this.

Plenty of Turks are monobrowed, hook-nosed, very hairy and olive skinned swarthies, with additional Mongoloid admixture. They don’t look much “white” as a whole.
