Alot of Puerto Ricans would refute, but Jennifer Lopez definitely has African in her. Not only because she has an African butt, but if you look at her early appearances in movies, TV or on That’s The Way Love Goes by Janet Jackson, she looked like a light skinned black woman. Then gained fame & started trying to look white. But I stand by my opinion, Jennifer Lopez has a good percent of African blood in her veins like most Puerto Ricans, Cubans & Dominicans

I thought she looked her best before her Hollywood makeover.

If anyone wants to know what a 20% African black admixture looks like go onto youtube dna testing and you will see many, many. Here is one link below she looks similar to what Jennifer Lopez looked like before her whitening transformation and nose jobs.

The average Puerto Rican look 23% African sub-Saharan

When I first saw Jennifer, I thought this admixture was very apparent, but some people have trouble accepting that.
