Brigzzz98 January 21, 2014 at 1:43 pm

Brigzzz98 January 18, 2014 at 10:24 pm

ihatemostpeople January 18, 2014 at 12:31 am

Must have had some distant black blood in the past.

Caution January 18, 2014 at 12:10 am

She looks mestiza.

thalia January 16, 2014 at 5:14 pm

This girl is JUST Mexican and Filipino. She’s just saying Irish and all that crap to sound exotic. If she was Irish, native American, and even german why didn’t she claim it earlier? Unless she took a genealogy test and found this sudden revelation.. Btw you can see the Filipino in her, along with the Mexican. I honestly thought she had black blood in her. LOL

Jay Jay Garcia December 21, 2013 at 9:10 am

Her father is of Mexican decent & her mother is of Filipino decent, she’s biracial

Jay Jay Garcia December 21, 2013 at 9:09 am

Jasmine V is of Filipino & Mexican Heritage, She has blackish-brwinish hair her eye color is brown and She has two brothers Jream and Justin .

indo December 19, 2013 at 5:56 pm

correction; shes just mexican and filipino.

follers December 19, 2013 at 11:55 pm

Well, unless you know her family tree/genealogy, it should probably just list what she said (for now).

INDO December 14, 2013 at 2:59 pm

correction;She’s just Mexican and Filipino.

follers December 14, 2013 at 6:11 pm

How do you know?

indo December 15, 2013 at 8:35 pm

It said it on Wiki.

follers December 15, 2013 at 8:57 pm
the punisher December 15, 2013 at 9:50 pm

So just because she wrote that, That makes her a race specialist LOL

indo December 19, 2013 at 5:54 pm

then why didnt she say that the first time?i think she just wants to sound more exotic.

Steve Turner November 30, 2013 at 5:52 pm

Correction if you have any Filipino descent your a mixture of Black and Spanish. And is you have any Spanish in you your have a mixture of African and Spanish. The Moors from Africa Ruled Spanish for 800 years. Spain took over the Philipines for several hundred years. And as you know Spanish took over Mexico for several hundred of years. Thus a mixture but no one heritage (no such thing as race only the human race) is with out a mix.

andrew December 1, 2013 at 2:49 am

here is another retarded. What a cultural tragedy

JasonBaker December 1, 2013 at 1:36 pm

WTF did you just smoke, @Steve Turner? The Moors did rule Spain but since there were religious differences they didn´t mix. Besides Elizabeth the Catholic expelled everyone who wasn´t White from Spain and she made racist policies against non-Whites. Anyways, I think you already knew that and you just wanted to troll around a little bit…

marjanel October 14, 2015 at 10:56 am

Moors didn’ t rule Spain.They lived there for centuries,but they are not wellseen by Spaniards because they were muslims and Spaniards were very catholocics.So they tend to mix.Also Moors were not all blacks.In many pictures of the time,Moors are painted ligh-skinned.Many Moors are described by History books and Liteature as blondes.

eyaeyayooooo June 13, 2014 at 10:31 am

lol you are one funny asshole

eyaeyayooooo June 13, 2014 at 10:33 am

Not all Filipinos have Spanish you know, so if you talk about how Filipinos have Black and Spanish blood then you are so funny. I’m Filipino, I should know.

strawberry20 November 11, 2013 at 10:01 am

she’s mostly plain mexican& filipino regardless other ethnicity added

guurl November 10, 2013 at 1:49 pm

No Native American. Unless it can be documented, lets assume it isn’t there. Her Amerindian heritage comes from her Mexican side. She looks Mexican mestiza mainly with soft traces of Filipino.

ShawntheGod November 2, 2013 at 9:57 pm

She looks like a typical mestiza.

leslie2 October 25, 2013 at 5:56 pm

Is there any proof/documentation to prove she is actually mixed with Native ? Even if she is, I highly doubt its enough to really count it as being mixed. I think she just wants to sound “exotic” and thats why alot of hollywood “haflies” claim tri-racial or quad-racial mixes when they really aren’t. It really starts to sound ridiculous after that the tri-racial point, and probably only the white/Mexican and Filipina is recent.

I doubt she is Native, because she doesn’t even list the tribe or anything related to it, and I doubt she knows anything beyond that.

I have nothing against Filipinos and I know many in my classes, and everyday life, but lots of Filipinos claim Spanish or Portuguese blood like white and black Americans claim Cherokee blood. It is so common and even if it is true, it is probably soooo far back that they are close to being 99% white, black, or Filipino,

Just like the Spaniards conquered Mexico, and other parts, most did not mix with the natives of the country, they did not desire to and only few did. Same with french, and English in Canada, and America, as they were considered low class and looked down on to be marred/breed with.

If she has ANY NATIVE ANCESTRY, if anything it will be indigenous-Mexican, which IS NOT NATIVE AMERICAN, which makes it even less believable and how could someone mistake the two, if they are what they say they are?

Also, since when is a celebrity stating anything about themselves or their race, always 100% the truth? MOST LIE about their race, and that is obvious by this information gathered on this website, and what has been proven as being lies vs the truth.
.

Like in North America, in the Philippines and Asia, it is hot right now to be considered mixed, half or exotic. it’s a fad like anything, and when the fad fades, the true recently mixed Natives, Spaniards, Mestizos etc will remain, while the fakers will move on to the next fad.

guurl November 3, 2013 at 1:48 am

Yes many people lie, while some are mistaken from false things their parents told them. The Europeans historically were very racist and obviously natives didn’t mix with them to very high degrees like some people exaggerate. That being said, the Spaniards did freely mix with the natives and were not as rigid as the British. The mestizos are Mexico’s largest group. That definitely says something. The French mixed with native women during colonial times in the 1600-1800’s and they created their own hybrid group called the metis, who formed their own new language out of it. In colonial times where European men had no access to women it was convenient. When the Europeans began settling permanently, it almost never happened because they grouped all natives together and confined them to reserves by then. No one was sneaking out of the reserves and making a bunch of mixed babies with the racist Europeans. Nothing to romanticize about. Most people do not have native ancestry, its pure myth. Most natives are around 85%-90% native genetically. It’s common for them to have minor European ancestry from colonial times but that’s it. Children of native mothers were brought up in her tribe because that’s where they got their tribal status from. Its unlikely the mixed child grew up in European culture. The actual mixed children from colonial times more often than not just got absorbed into the native population instead of the European population. And those rare situations where the mixed children did get absorbed into the European population were not significant enough to even make a difference.

J.J. October 23, 2013 at 8:59 pm

correction; her eyes are hazel and her hair is virtually black (noirette) I think it should be listed

Faith October 16, 2013 at 3:41 am
Faith October 16, 2013 at 3:41 am

Correction: Besides being Mexican and Filipino, she is also German, Irish, Spanish, and American Indian (Native American).

Valaina July 14, 2012 at 11:29 pm

I am also filipino but with spanish and chinese, my dad is half spanish and his family name is sanchez and sanchez is a spanish last name. And i speak spanish as well so dont think im lying.

Hope Moretti August 25, 2012 at 2:09 am

I’m Mexican. We Mexicans hate/dislike Spain and everything about Spain. We might have Spanish last names but that doesn’t make us Spaniards. So be just proud of what you are.

rickyflo April 14, 2013 at 8:41 am

Ya have an Italian name. Yeah she should not regret any part of her heritage, but ethnicity if she is Filipino, she is. Also, Spaniard last names are White, and it is alright to be proud to have some Spaniard in anyone!

thalia January 16, 2014 at 5:06 pm

Just because you speak Spanish doesn’t mean you’re really Spanish. I mean I know several African people who speak fluent French yet they have no French blood. This was because the French as well as the English etc invaded them and forced them to become accustomed with them. Same with 98% of Filipinos. BTW I’m Filipino, last name is Sanchez too no joke yet I don’t claim Spanish blood. THE SPANIARDS FORCED THE FILIPINOS TO HAVE SPANISH LAST NAMES BTW. And I’m betting you speak Spanish but only like the basics lmaoo.

Hope Moretti June 29, 2012 at 1:51 pm

I love filipinos and mexican men only. i want a filipino man in my life

Valaina June 11, 2012 at 12:45 am

Im half filipino just like her but then i wish i had mexican in me…then maybe id be prettier

Hope Moretti June 29, 2012 at 1:47 pm

lol Most Mexicans this days are mestizos so they have European blood. that’s why they look prettier. last month i went to mexico for the first time and i didn’t know they were white

DarellDianne April 9, 2012 at 10:18 pm

great mix..im filipino but im mixed with spanish and more..

littleman April 9, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Take it from a real Spanish. fillipino people just want tp be spanish. You guys look more like thais or malays or even samoan. But not Spanish not even close. I should know I’m spanish myself from Spain.

DarellDianne April 10, 2012 at 5:07 am

ummm i am spanish from my dad’s side…

thalia January 16, 2014 at 5:08 pm

even if did I bet it be like less than 5% lMAOO.

Hope Moretti June 29, 2012 at 1:49 pm

u guys from spain r crap. i hate people from spain. they are always racist. latinos will be better if they had our italian blood. italy is better

Me myself and I October 3, 2013 at 11:01 pm

If anyone’s racist that’s you… therefore Spanish people are a shitload better than you. So what if there are some racist Spaniards, there are in any country, but most aren’t. But you Miss/Mister can go under the same roof with any racist (whether Spanish or not) – To your other comment: Stop classifying ALL Mexicans as yourself. Say ‘I hate Spanish people’ not ‘We Mexicans hate Spanish people’ In the end, Mexicans are at least 50% Spanish (most, some are other white ethnicity’s)

daisyc February 17, 2012 at 12:04 pm

shes pretty!! usually any race mixed with Mexican is a pretty mix!!

Stephanie Marie February 15, 2012 at 12:33 pm

JASMINE IS A GOOD SINGER AND I CAN’T BELIEVE BIEBER WAS MESSIN WITH HER BEFORE SELENA GOMEZ HE SHOW DO LUV THOSE MEXICAN CHICKS BIT I AGREE THERE SO GORGEOUS BUT JASMINE IS PRETTIER IN MY OPINION

Candice January 5, 2012 at 9:07 am

There is nothing wrong with Selena Gomez she is cute as well and she is more on the white side because her mother is white. I actually think they are a better match. Jasmine likes black guys she is dating a biracial guy now and all of her friends are black and all she tries to do is dance and act like she if from the African culture. She will more than likely end up with a black man or at least with a half black baby. Its more than obvious!

jasmine January 10, 2012 at 1:30 pm

selena gomez is prettier………

jasmine martin July 18, 2011 at 2:35 pm

jasmine is gorgeous! im also half filipina but im half black too not mexican…..i love her hair when its curly….i wish mine was curlier its wavy but not curly.
