“Cuban” is not a race. It is more correct to say that you have Spanish-Cuban, Afro-Cuban or Cuban-Indian ancestors.

She looks “white” although her Cuban is not.

Cuban people are tri racial.

lelo4 October 15, 2015 at 5:22 pm

no, most Cubans are either very white or very black, with some being mulattos. Her had is part Afro-cuban though

Tri racials are undefined. Her dad is part afro but also native cuban and spanish :)

Her dad looks fully Spaniard: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/multimedia/archive/00035/t2_leon_72181686_35047b.jpg

Saying Cubans are triracial is like saying Americans are triracial.. equally as stupid. Cuba has a large white, black, and mulato population… people with visible Indigenous descent are rare in western parts of Cuba and more frequent in the east, but still NOT the majority among mixed people.. only in two provinces maybe. So most Cubans are indeed Mulatos, not triracials but with a large white minority and a significant black minority.

her dad is ambiguous looking, IMO he’s not 100% Spaniard.

Capricious October 10, 2015 at 6:51 pm

She looks Armenian or Assyrian.

lelo4 October 15, 2015 at 6:00 pm

imo she looks more iraqi or iranian

loiro February 24, 2016 at 3:46 am

She looks European.. not Middle Eastern at all, Mediterranean Middle Easterners rarely look like European ones with the exception of Lebanese and Turkish ones. More European looking Iranians tend to resemble Eastern European people..

You need to get out more.

Most Middle Eastern women, especially Syrians, Lebanese, Kurds (or those from the Levant and Northern Mesopotamia) look exactly like this young woman.
