Just because they raped it does not mean they invented it!

SeanieCooper April 24, 2014 at 7:34 am

Half Irish and half Italian looked so much. I think the little amount of german ruined an awesome ethnicity.

dennybb February 9, 2014 at 6:06 pm

From Europe
Are you sure? LOL

Not only Italy is the country that contributed more to this world but is also the country that with the ROMAN EMPIRE ruled and conquered the world for 1000 years
Uk was part of the roman empire for 400 years, austria was part of the roman empire for 350 years, switzerland, germany, netherlands, france, spain, greece, hungary, and many more countries were all part of the roman empire

Italy gave birth to the european civilization called renaissance

ITALIANS AREN’T A RACE BUT AN ETHNICITIY LIKE FRENCH, GERMANS, BRITISH, ETC ETC
Italy is a nation that got unification in 1861

ITALIANS ARE CAUCASIAN. North italians are part of the alpine group and southern italians are part of the mediterranean group

By many survey and study made in Europe a big % of all europeans will carry some roman ancestry. LOL

Check on yahoo “GERMANY REDISCOVER ITS ROMAN ROOTS”

People in Scandinavia aren’t pure white in fact based on fact from anthropology and not personal believe or preference they are all descent from mongolian population and samoi indigenous
Check on yahoo “Are the Finns the Mongolians of Europe?

Americans are the most mixed people in the world, in fact the majoritie of the so called “white” americans have africans, hispanic, jewish or asian ancestry

And italians are the fourth largest european ancestry in america after uk, germany and ireland

check on yahoo “WHITE AMERICANS”

If Italians aren’t european well nobody in europe is european at all. LOL

Italy invented europe!!

Jordan August 28, 2015 at 7:46 am

levangelista36 June 28, 2012 at 2:25 am

sooooo …. is she not white since she has very recent italian heritage?

i hear on this site all of the time how italians are not white, how they were invaded by the moors, and are now black….some shit like that….

so we can’t refer to lindsay as white, right?

paris hilton’s mama, kathy avanzino, is italian too….

Me myself and I January 5, 2013 at 1:12 pm

they’re idiots, Italians are White just like Swedish or Germans or Russians or anyone else originally from Europe!

Blonde Frizzles May 13, 2012 at 9:01 am

Wow…It’s so sad that she was such a beautiful girl and then got into so much trouble and changed so much. Anyway, I personally think that with red hair she just looked more natrual and its fit her better. I’m also Italian and trust me, being Italian really is white, but it does’t really matter if we think she’s white or not because it doesn’t change who she is.

Angel Syrene March 17, 2012 at 3:21 pm

Irish people are NEVER Scandinavian,its Celtic race some the Scottish,Welsh and Bretons peoples. Scandinavian is Germanic peoples some English and German.

LOPAC AGREES March 14, 2012 at 6:37 pm

someone should tell you this: YOU’RE AN IDOT

Tony March 10, 2012 at 6:54 pm

Beautiful girl. Shame she is screwing herself up with the drugs fast paced life style and dying her hair blonde like she’s some pin up

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 6:55 pm

She looks Native influenced but is not white anyway because she is part Italian.

Maria March 2, 2012 at 8:43 am

She is looking dreadful lately with the bleached blonde?yellow hair,
She should go back to this colour hair style she has in this picture ,It looks great on her it suits her more with the light eyes/ darker hair combo.

Frankie February 25, 2012 at 6:27 am

whats the problem with italians with fair features, i’ll never know. i’m italian, i live near naples. i have pale skin, brown eyes but dirty blond hair. and by dirty blond i mean dark blond with red features. my mom is from naples too and she’s blonde, with blue eyes and pale skin; my father has a olive skin, black hair and green eyes; my granny is light blonde, has green eyes and pale skin while my grand father has pale skin but brown eyes and black hair. see? people with fair features are very common here since ALWAYS. americans built stereotypes on italian immigrants that mainly came from southern regions like sicily and campania too. and yes, sicilians had a predominant arab domination in comparison with the rest of italy so they can look darker. but had a more dominant norman domination too so you can find blond people as well. i went in sicily a few years ago and well, i met sicilian people with very dark features but people with scandinavian features too. anyways back to these american stereotypes, if you do your research you can see that they aren’t the same in brazil or argentina where they have a higher percentage of italian immigrants than the US and they mostly come from veneto. veneto is in nothern italy and light features are more common than the dark ones and i’m talking about native nothern italian people. in fact its a common belief in those latin american countries that italians have fair features. so at the end, italy had many dominations in the past so you can easily understand that we are mixed. and its ridicolous that in the 21st century these stereotypes are still alive. lindsay sure looks more irish than italian. but you’ll be surprised to see that there are many italians with similar features. google some of them : Chiara Ferragni (fashion blogger), Veronica Olivier (model), Patty Pravo (70’s singer), Monica Vitti (actress), Bianca Balti (model) i can go forever. thanks for the attention.

What? February 17, 2012 at 8:28 pm

100% WHITE!

JJJ March 14, 2012 at 12:59 am

She’s actually part neanderthal since her race mated with the Neanderthal beast

bilo80 January 21, 2012 at 4:25 am

People should stop to be so ignorant and start travelling, unfortunatelly Hollywood gave this idea that all the italians are dark ( it wouldn’t be anything wrong with that if it was true) but its not true at all, italians are white europeans and as so they can have all the colour of hair and eyes, and unlike many ignorant things, not only in northen Italy, but in the south too. I am from Sicily, very pale with freckles (unfortunatelly i get burned very easily) and when i was in school there was always some kid with ginger hair or blond ( of course not as many as in some northen european country) . Especially in Sicily the normand domination left a track.

Paul February 12, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Not true “at all”? Of course it’s true “at all.” There are certainly fairskinned and fairhaired people in Italy, but they tend of be darker on average than, say, Scandinavians.

Reno February 18, 2012 at 11:45 pm

Scandinavians aren’t as fair as you assume. And fair Southern Europeans are seen as fair in Scandinavia too. Do you honestly think most Scandinavians are light blonds with pink skin? lol..

mm February 19, 2012 at 6:57 pm

Scandinavians and Baltic countries (North-Eastern Slavic countries) do have the highest percentage of blonds, although not ALL of them are blond. Finland has the highest percentage with over 80% of the population. In terms of skin color, they really aren’t very pale though. The sun shines ALL DAY during the summer, it will be bright at 10pm, but NOT AT ALL during winter. Most of them actually look somewhat tan. Scientific studies show Irish people have the palest skin in the world, which makes sense cause it’s cloudy all year.

Zendaya J. February 18, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Not alll Italians are dark. my friend she is an italian,well half,and she is whole white, when italians are like half American and half italian or any half other things,their color skin is white, but sometimes when their a 100% Italian, then their skin is brown,some Italians are 100% Italians and their born from another country, the sun or the cold will change or can change their body color.

12 February 18, 2012 at 3:03 pm

I’m from Europe .. central/Eastern Europe and have been to Italy many time. Italians ARE NOT BROWN EVER… maybe some are a light brown when they tan but definitely not naturally, I have never seen an Italian who was not white. I don’t think many Americans have a clue what Europeans look like. In central and eastern Europe there are many people who are quite dark and even in the British Isles .. it’s not just people in southern Europe.. but they are all white in the end of the day. Remember most Europeans tan well.. at least continental Europeans so you can’t judge someones actual skin colour on their tan!

Alice January 19, 2012 at 4:55 am

http://irishtribesman.blogspot.com/2007/01/red-hair-is-most-common-in-ireland.html
In reference to Lindsay’s red hair. Apparently in some recent genetic studies the Irish have the highest incidence of red hair or more Irish carry the genes for red hair.

mm January 25, 2012 at 5:54 pm

Scotland has the highest amount of redheads (13%) and 40% are estimated to carry the redhead gene. Ireland has the 2nd highest amount (10%) but 46% are estimated to carry the gene.

Alice February 18, 2012 at 9:45 am

Thanks for that. I have read about Scotland having the highest amount of red hair but it is interesting that the Irish have the highest percentage carrying the gene. They are both Gaels and have much in common.

Alice November 21, 2012 at 6:44 am

Around 2-6% of people from northwestern Europe have red hair, compared with 1-2% wordwide. In Scotland, this rises to 13%, with around one in three Scots carrying the ‘ginger gene’. In contrast, in Ireland, while 10% have red hair, up to 46% carry the red hair gene.

Scotland has a higher percentage of red hair but the Irish have a higher percentage carrying the gene.

She looks exactly how she is, Irish, with some Italian facial features.

Anywyz yeah but I’m just making a point some ppl with hardly of one thing in them can look more of that than the majority of what they mostly are it’s def verrrryyy wiiieeerrrrddd geneticcs*eye rolls*

THE ITALIANS ARE MOST BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE IN EUROPE AND ALL THE COLLEST AND HOSTTEST CELEBERITY HAVE AN ITALIANS DECENTS SO, IM NOT EVER AN ITALIAN BUT I CAN SEE THAT THEY ALL HAVE A RELATION WITH ITALY, JHON TRAVOLTA, JOHN CENA .MADONNA, LADY GAGA, PARIS HILTON, LINDSAY LOHAN!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL ITALIANS!!!!!!!!!!1

Mac January 10, 2012 at 6:33 pm

LOL most of the people you named aren’t beautiful ! John Cena is tank but beautiful ??? Madonna is a psycho ! Lady Gaga is a man !!!! John Travolta maybe back in the 80’s was beautiful ! Paris Hilton is like 1/15 Italian ! Lindsay Lohan is mainly Irish too !!!!

Mac January 4, 2012 at 7:23 pm

@Gigia, i don’t get why italians and all southern europeans try to be nordic or celtic so much, as u said ive been to italy, and the italians in the south are generally darker than the northern ones. as majority of northern italians look like regular white people to me, but there are even some in the north (Florence, Udine, and Milan) with more tanned and arabic type skin. Such as the italian soccer player Zambrotta, and southern italians i found quite tanned and Arabic looking! by arabic looking i don’t mean like Saudi, but more Lebanese/Syrian type, and they’re kinda white too if u consider italians/greeks white!! Just look at syria’s President, and Lebanon’s and even Jordan’s or Algeria’s they are all white !!!!! and it is really a fact in sicily viking might have came but so did the north africans and Arabs just look how close Sicily is too Africa !!! And it’s a fact the more south u go the darker the people get, just look at Europe it’s north or africa so the people are lighter, in europe northern europeans suchas Scandanavians, are lighter than the southern Europeans, in africa north africans/arabs are lighter than central and southern africans! in India northern Indians are more Arabic looking and lighter than Southern Indians, in East Asia, Asians from the northern parts of the Far east Korea, japan etc. are lighter than southeast asians, indonesians, malaysians etc. And sun isn’t the only reason but also race that’s like black people and white people are the same race but in Africa it’s hotter so they got more Tanned??

THEMastermind January 6, 2012 at 3:57 am

Italians don’t like pale skin people since roman empire, so you are talking cr**. More than 60% of lebanese population is catholic, they got a lot of european influence. Lebanon was used by europeans to get in North Africa, as well as Syria. Bashar al Assad is Alawite, they are estimated to constitute between 10-15% of the syria population. Bashar al Assad is clearly white-caucasian. Spite of these facts , I think majority of syrian population are dark skinned, and I have seen dark skinned lebaneses. I don’t know anything about Jordan and Algeria, so….but many royal families from Middle East marriage with people from another countries and ethnics. Sun, climate, That’s what science says, but I think it’s more about miscegenation.

Mac January 7, 2012 at 9:06 am

I have also seen many dark skinned Italians just watch the Jersey shore !!!! Or the Italian national soccer team !

Mac January 7, 2012 at 10:25 am

” Spite of these facts i think majority of Syrian population is dark skinned “. So u basically just aren’t admitting that u don’t admit facts, but are making your own opinion up!! That’s like me saying all Italians look the ones on Jersey shore ! But I know Italians and every single race in the world varies in looks, because it is a fact ! I am Syrian, and i honestly have skin pale as the color of snow, freckles, green eyes, and red hair !!!! But when I tell people I am Arab or Syrian, I get stupid comments Like “Oh u look Irish cause ur a ginger”, or ” You don’t like Osama that much”, just stereotypes !!!! People think if ur Arab u have to be brown skinned but the truth is Arabs range in colors from black (Sudanese and some other African Arabs) to Brown(Saudis, Gulf Arabs, Yemeni,Omani, majority of Iraqis) to white(Lebanese, Syrian, and Jordanian) I don’t mean white like Nordic but white like Mediterrenean! And there is arabs who are mixed with all such as Egyptians,Libyans,Algerians, and Tunisians!

THEMastermind January 14, 2012 at 1:49 pm

I said Syria was route to Europeans and majority of the population could looks dark, I didn’t say every single person in Syria was dark skinned. Because I know that people from North Africa and Middle East are very mixed. I said it because the history of that region, seeing that many ethnic groups from this country/region were represented as dark skinned people. Hyksos for example. I’m not the kind of person who categorizes people by stereotypes. This guy (http://tinyurl.com/7xpmd8p) looks just like you, he’s a Lebanese with pale skin, red hair and green eyes. He’s catholic btw.

KimJ January 9, 2012 at 9:28 am

“White” people is ANYONE from Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. The term has NOTHING to do with skin color and everything to do with geography. That means that a Russian is NOT a white person and a very dark skinned person from North Africa IS a white person.

The original peoples of Southern Europe were of Celtic descent. The Moors (Arabs) invaded Spain in 711 and were kicked out of their last stronghold in Granada in 1492 by Queen Isabella. So, yes you are in fact correct in seeing Arabic features as any dark skinned European from Southern Europe is for sure displaying that Arabic influence. A Southern European being proud of their Celtic roots or showing them is totally normal IMO.

THEMastermind January 14, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Russians aren’t whites? The Caucasus is the cradle of European people, that’s why white skin people are called “Caucasians”. Ignorant people use to say white is a race but it’s not. Caucasian is the right term to describe people from Europe, Eurasia, Middle East, South Asia, and North Africa. There a huge difference when you classified regions by skin color instead of race. You should read the book “The Invention of the White Race”. White means White, Black means Black, Yellow means Yellow. The truth is there are fails in any way to classify humans, you know why. In 40’s Nazis used to think people from Tibet were Aryans because of their skull size. I don’t know if this Italian thinking is based on proud, it’s just a history heritage.

Angel Syrene January 2, 2012 at 1:55 am

She’s made Irish she’s red hair its very celtic

Maria December 25, 2011 at 12:18 pm

Well Lohan and Sullivan are both Irish last names .I`m guessing both parents have a good bit of Irish maybe one parent is a half Italian or something.

reiver January 4, 2012 at 2:00 pm

That’s exactly what the article says.

Maria January 4, 2012 at 2:13 pm

I know.I was actually saying they were both Irish last names as someone in the comments said her dad was full Italian now Lohan is not an Italian name now is it ok.

jen August 5, 2011 at 8:58 pm

gigi sorry her features are completely celtic. she is only one quarter Italain

obscured February 22, 2011 at 1:42 am

This is completly stupid.lindsay lohan is not of italian decent.I refuse to believe this fame hungry whore.

huggybear aka the real fuzzybear October 29, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Are you sure she’s JUST Italian and Irish?

Anonymous October 29, 2010 at 6:19 pm

Lindsay does not have brown eyes. Her eyes are an interesting blue/green color.
http://www.nowmagazine.co.uk/imageBank/l/LINDSAY-LOHAN-PARENT-TRAP.jpg That’s her when she was a child, and I seriously doubt she wore contacts back then. |:

I’m actually a tad confused about where her Italian is from..
According to wikipedia, her dad is actually from Co. Galway in Ireland, and her mother’s family are well known Irish stalwarts… so who does the Italian come from? :/

Anonymiss September 23, 2010 at 6:44 pm

Lindsay Lohan is 75% Irish, the rest Italian from her mom. Lindsay has brown eyes as do all of the family. Her eyes aren’t blue, green or even hazel. Like Paris Hilton, she drinks, does drugs and wears hand painted lens for dark eyes.

Michelle January 14, 2011 at 9:31 am

Honestly, it would be very hard to fake blue eyes like hers:
http://thenewsalert.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/lindsay-lohan-009.jpg

That eye color looks pretty real to me.

[email protected] July 30, 2010 at 8:27 pm

No wonder I find Miss Lohan so so attractive physically,I tend to unconsciouly find myslef attracted to people of BOTH celtic&Italian descent,two of the hottest celebrities to me ever (both dead)were,Gia Carrangi(Father was Italian)Mother was Irish&one allot of you probally will not recall by name Pammela Corisson(probally mispelled)Mostly Scottish(Very fair skinned red hair&freckles)Know by her Living with the late great James Douglas Morrisson(The Doors)Darn,her pictures were and still are breath taking*even w/out make up*Mr. Morrisson was so lucky in SO many ways,there is a rumor Neil young’s song “Cinnamon Girl “was about her*which he vehemently denies,and he was married8some say*to another redhead*still allive*Patricia Kennely,who bad mouth’s pour Pamela to pieces…..But why did I find Gia so attractive?Make’s me wonder if it really is genetic(especially with Gia’s preferrence for BLONDE Ladies)Dont take my word for it read some of the book’s written about her.

…and they are not rare at all..
…sorry but I just cant stand ignorance…btw I found the new Lindsay look (fake blonde) less attractive than the original one…she is going often to the hairdresser isn’t she…like the most of actress…

Gigia July 23, 2010 at 2:06 am

…last but not the least Violante Placido is much more beautiful and classy

Gigia July 22, 2010 at 4:46 pm

…Violante Placido dyed? Please….look at her pale skin and her light eyes…she is natural red heads maybe she go to the hair dressed to make her hair look brighten but is not Lindsay Lohan doing the same? Please they are actrees and dont be naive telling they dont ALL do something on their hairs only to proove I am wrong….I bet Lindsay go even more often to her hair dresser than Violante….dont try to promote facts with silly statements…they are hilarious…

Gigia July 22, 2010 at 4:40 pm

…and is not true that the northerns are lighter than southerns IS A MYTH!…please people start to travel and get real…you would be amazed to see how many pale red/blond haired are in the south…sometimes even more often than the north…have you ever heard about Normans (VIKINGS)…well they stop in the south of Italy (and Sicily) and never ventured further north than that!!…People you need to study history before to speak…!!Violante Placido who is from southerns descent look more “Irish” than Lindsay!!…stop spreading false things and false stereotype please…!!Lots of southerns got light green/blue eyes as well….travel and find it out!

Gigia July 22, 2010 at 4:35 pm

A lot of southerns italians got the same features/colours as Lindsay Lohan you are all just plain IGNORANTS thinking different…and is more likely that Lindsay Lohan got southerns origin because the most of people who emigrated to Usa were from the south…..
People just stop to stereotype and be ignorants please…

A lot of people from the north of Italy are blonde/red hair because germans imigrated that zone maybe his italian family are from the north so she may have german ancestry too =P although she looks very irish to me haha.

Germans aren’t celtics.

RustyPeanuts. you have quite a mixed family there. I guess with the red hair and Green eyes your nephew has light skin? Does any of the Filipino/Puerto Rican traits come out in any of your family?

RustyPeanuts. May 4, 2010 at 2:21 pm

true, i have noticed scots and some northern europeans to have red hair but I usually associated that hair color with the irish. My nephew is a mutt, taking from my side of the family filipino, spanish, russian, german, polish, from his dad he has irish, italian and puerto rican…the kid has flaming red hair with greenish blue eyes like me and my brother which is odd cause my sister has amber colored eyes and his dad has brown but every one else in both families have colored eyes which is either blue, grey or green. The other irish in my family would be both my aunts who married irish…all the boys look german…tall and either blond or brunette with grey or blue eyes…but the girls and especially the grandchildren exhibit reddish hair but with blue eyes lack of green though as this side of my family through my dad are polish, russian and german.

I agree that italians can look like her, my friend who is sicilian told me that most northern italians have nordic features while southern italians and sicilians have darker features.

defo irish! i know one of the parents is 100% irish but the other one must have a bit i would say! irish mix very well with french too!

…. You’ve completely read my post the wrong way.
I said she looks typically Irish. I know Italians can look like her, I’m part Italian myself.
Red hair and blue/green eyes is way more common in Ireland than it is in Italy, which is why “Irish” came into my mind when I thought about her heritage.
That being said, she has more Irish in her than Italian.
Lohan and Sullivan are Irish names. (: She’s still really cool, I can see why people don’t like her, but I think she’s cool.

Anonymous February 11, 2010 at 6:16 am

Agreed. They look alike. :)

Gigia February 11, 2010 at 5:49 am

Like this….she look even a little bit as Lohan don’t she?But her roots are in the south of Italy

Italian women can be pretty as well…and why she should not have “italian” in her?They are not all dark with brown hair and eyes…look at Violante Placido which is pure southern italian actress and see how she can be “irish”…

Paul¬! January 5, 2010 at 10:32 am

She’s pretty. Looks typically Irish. I wouldn’t have thought she had Italian in her, tbh.

Scotland has the highest proportion of redheads, as 13 percent of the population has red hair and approximately 40 percent carries the recessive redhead gene.[8] Ireland has the second highest percentage; as many as 10 percent of the Irish population have red, auburn, or strawberry blond hair.[9] It is thought that up to 46 percent of the Irish population carries the recessive redhead gene.

-according to Wikipedia

ethnic October 25, 2009 at 3:33 pm

I wonder what ethnicity has the highest proportion of redheads?

I think especially around New York, there are a lot of Irish and Italian people so youre bound to get a mix of the two.

Anonymous July 7, 2009 at 5:37 am
