    Kylie Jenner (as well as Kendall Jenner) is only white on her father, Bruce Jenner’s, side. Her mother (as well as her three older sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe) is Armenian, which is a country in the middle-east. Therefore she and her sister Kendall are half-Armenian, half-English/Scottish/Irish/Dutch. Just for the record, Armenian is not white, nor is it in europe.

  3. she looks like a irish and a dutch to me ,she has got sharp feature that makes me feel she has some dutch n her

    I’m like her dark hair eyes etc i’m british and irish and people think i’m spanish Itlaian etc so just shows

    • pookerella says:

      Spain invaded Ireland and brought many immigrants. That is what the Black Irish are.

      • follers says:

        Spain never really “invaded” Ireland. There was an armada, most members of which did not remain in Ireland and/or were killed.

        “Black Irish” is a term someone made up to describe Irish people with dark hair and/or eyes. It has no genealogical or ethnic meaning whatsoever. You can similarly call Russell Brand, Rowan Atkinson, Dominic Cooper, and so on, “Black English”, and much of Wales “Black Welsh”, and so on. Fact must be separated from silly myth-making.

      • follers says:

        P.S., Kylie’s mother is dark, too, and she is not of Irish descent.

      • andrew says:

        Spain NEVER invaded Ireland. But a research team at Oxford University has found the majority of Britons are Celts descended from Spanish tribes who began arriving about 7,000 years ago.

        • ae111 says:

          You keep on referring to articles based on Bryan Sykes outdated material. Listen, the British ain’t going to be Spanish even if you repeat it a thousand times.

          • follers says:

            Does it really matter who has ancestry from 7,000 years back? Most ethnic groups on earth (or even all) did not even exist in the forms they do no 7,000 years ago. If one single person in England had Spanish ancestry 2000 years ago, and has descendants today, then it is extremely likely that every English person is descended from that person today (many times over).

            @ ae111

            how a 2006 book, ” Blood of the Isles”, is outdated?? You seem scared about the Iberian theory

          • ae111 says:

            Iberian theory? This article’s nonsense about Spanish tribes and Celts 7,000 years ago is just based on Sykes misunderstandings of haplogroup R1b and ridiculous in itself.

          • andrew says:

            which is your point?

          • Alice says:

            Andrew that is outdated information. Spain didn’t repopulate Europe after the Ice Age. Spain like all of Europe received R1b from the East. The R1b haplotype dominant in the British Isles is a different subclade than the one in Spain. The Irish and Spanish are not very close on autosomal dna. Spain is much closer to a lot of European countries than Ireland.

          • stonelord says:

            The R1b (Basque theory) information is now outdated but every archaeologist knows that Britain in the neolithic and early bronze age was entered via the western seaboard (Spain and France) hence most of British Isles (and Ireland) has some similarity to these areas. The celtic languages probably arrived via that corridor too.

          • caligurl2 says:

            Why do some British nationalist have issues with Spanish relations? You guys are so quick to claim both Roman heritage and Viking heritage, both of which you don’t have much of according to recent studies, but for some reason to have spanish relations is looked down on? Why so? isn’t it British women who are obsessed with Spanish men? Anyway, relations with the Spanis is inescapable for you. No matter how you slice it, British people didn’t just magically appear in the isles Europeans migrated from THE SOUTH and then upward. Every single northern european group has mediterranean admixture. Every single one. I know that might hurt the neo nazis who want to be pure Germanic, but those are the facts
