She is also part French and Spanish on her “Babee” line, which is common for people with ancestors in Louisiana

a random link:

Yes, Doris Pearl Bryant, from both parents, had Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Mexican ancestry, as well as English.

However, she wasn’t Lucy’s great-grandmother. Someone linked Doris Pearl Bryant as Oliver Preston Hale’s wife on, but it’s wrong. His real wife was a Doris Francis Bryant of Tennessee, who was the daughter of John Bryant and Daisy.

I guess there are mistakes of this kind in other genealogies

lelo4 October 15, 2015 at 5:42 pm

legez August 29, 2015 at 7:55 am

sparkles180 August 11, 2015 at 12:50 pm

Omg I love her!! and the people thinking she looks mexican, no she looks full white. She looks more french/italian.

abelleza August 5, 2015 at 2:12 pm

Okay, I am english person who has been to Scotland, Ireland and Germany. This girl does not look like she could be from any of these countries, she looks too exotic. Her skin tone is more mediterranean and I don’t know if she dyes her hair but it very dark for someone from of Ireland, never mind the often much fairer English/Scottish/German.

hesh123 August 5, 2015 at 2:36 pm

She looks like Jaime Alexander, who is english and german

abelleza August 5, 2015 at 3:46 pm

Nope, Jaime Alexander has a different skin tone and much lighter hair.

hesh123 August 6, 2015 at 12:21 am


xoxo November 19, 2015 at 8:26 pm

Jaime looks like Michael Jackson after he turned white. She’s very creepy looking.

cwm85 July 28, 2015 at 4:59 am

Definitely she her English roots…

M July 27, 2015 at 5:28 pm

she looks part mexican or something ethnic, she isn’t white

cwm85 July 28, 2015 at 11:17 am

Um… she is white. Why do you dispute everyone not being totally white? Where in this article or her ethnic background does it suggest she is Not European descent?

She looks like Selena Gomez to a certain degree.

M May 31, 2015 at 8:32 am

She’s way prettier Selena Hoemez. Selena looks like a baby-faced rat.

? January 5, 2014 at 8:08 pm

She’s so pretty =) Would of thought she’s a little mixed.

noneofyourbusiness February 17, 2015 at 7:46 pm

Mixed with what? She looks white.

AW October 9, 2015 at 12:04 am

So you have to be mixed to be pretty? There are beautiful women in every ethnic group, whether they are mixed or not.

Oreos Plus The Milk January 4, 2014 at 3:02 pm

On Wikipedia it says her name is Lucy Kate Hale.

Me myself and I January 10, 2013 at 7:14 am

I just can say one thing:
ethnicelebs is the worst page on the internet.
and I’ve lost all respect for the person behind this, because he said he’ll delete offensive comments, but obviously doesn’t think that you can be offensive toward Whites enough. Racism is hate toward human beings with a different origin, skin colour, facial characteristics and other characteristics common in a race, than yours. Not just if you’re White hating on other human beings.
And if we’ll talk about Black slavery then there’s one more reason for all of you to shut the fuck up. That was done by Whites that moved to America. There was no Slavery in Europe and was never done by the Whites that didn’t leave their native country and continent.
In the end of the day, we’re all part of one race – HUMAN RACE and we have these differences only because of climate, so that we can survive in different areas of this world better than someone with a different skin colour. We’re all siblings (was proven) and now STFU!
Ethnicelebs guy shame on you!

fuzzybear44 January 10, 2013 at 9:45 am

To Me myself and I

Maybe you could cut the guy a little slack.I mean he works,so maybe he can’t edited everything real fast.Your right Racism is hate , and offensive comments should be taken down.Maybe you should try emailing him ,I know he will answer those.

One other thing,where did you get the idea,there was no slavery in europe?England,Spain,Portugal,Italy in the ancient days,pretty much all over ,even Sweden had slavery.Seville was one of the main places they got the first slaves,they ship to america .Europe has a long history of slavery,both (black and white).

Me myself and I January 10, 2013 at 3:47 pm

OK let’s say all of that happened here, but why are we living in the past? Why do people keep saying that Whites are still racist and only Whites can be. Blacks, Asians and Mixed can’t they can annoy and insult Whites but will be awarded for that or what? Is that fair to you? Or that we listen to that crap theory that we don’t exist or that we’re ugly and stuff like that? Be human man and stop with the hate. Blacks, Whites, Asians, Mixed are all beautiful. There are no ugly humans actually. Everyone’s beautiful in her/his own way.

fuzzybear44 July 15, 2013 at 8:24 am

@Me myself and I

Sorry,never saw this comment

(Why do people keep saying that Whites are still racist and only Whites can be)

It’s called Systemic change,whites created the system in which put them on top.You can go anywhere in your country,and no one’s going to treat you different because of the color of your skin.I saw a video the other day,it was test to see peoples reaction.They had 3 white boys destroying a car in a park.For 3 hours no one called the cops,all they sad was just don’t destroy my car.1 man final walk over and stop,and he called the police.The funny thing is,two more calls were made,about two black guys in a car 100 feet away.The people said they looked suspicious,and up to no good.It turn out that those two guys were actually sleeping,but for some reason they looked like they were up to no good.They said nothing about the 3 white kids trashing the car.So the people doing the test had 3 black kids trashing the car,and within a few minutes the police got 15 phones calls.Later they interviewed some of the people,and some of the replies were like they didn’t belong here(that racist) .Now blacks can be (bigoted )and that’s expressing (hate),but we have no power.Except for places like Africa,where there are many places where black people are in power,then they can be racist,and make laws to hurt white people.Now people can be bigoted all day long,(black white ,asian )you name it.Now all these things are really dumb,but you see the comments on this site.BTW many times,those are other white people you guys are fighting with,just like I fuss with other black people on here.

fuzzybear44 July 16, 2013 at 5:25 am

I guess I really should proofread my comments

andrew July 15, 2013 at 6:29 am
andrew July 15, 2013 at 6:20 am There’s an interesting book by a French author, Olivier Pétré-Grenouilleau, about slavery, I dunno if it was translated in English

DarellDianne April 9, 2012 at 10:04 pm

she is very pretty..!!

Clough February 22, 2012 at 12:42 pm

What is Anglo American?

M February 26, 2012 at 9:39 am

Anglo-American means English-American

nathaniel thomas January 29, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Ahh no one can believe anyone right now

Angelika January 29, 2012 at 5:02 pm

Well i guess me and nearly everyone in Europe is crazy then haha

Angelika January 29, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Noybody is even Caucasian according to this site its all just a figment of my imignation i will tell everyone I know we will be sure to have a good laugh.

storm January 29, 2012 at 5:33 pm

that’s right

No one is Caucasian

Not even Gwenyth Paltrow because she is Jewish

Not even Britney Spears cause she part Sicilian and Maltese

Not even Megan Fox, Hillary Clinton, Julia Roberts, Quentin Tarantino, Jessica Simpson, Miley Cyrus, and Anne Hathaway cause they have distant Native ancestry

Not even Renee Zellwegger cause she’s mixed w/ Sami or whatever you call that Mongoloid ethnic group Swedes are mixed with

Not even Angelina Jolie, Minka Kelly, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Cheryl Cole cause they too exotic for their ethnicity

Not even Nina Dobrev and Sarah Hyland cause they got tan skin

Not even Nicole Kidman cause her hair is naturally curly

Not even Candice Swanepoel cause she mixed w/ Afrikkan cause she from South Africa

Not even Summer Glau and Julia Stiles cause they look Asian

So that’s right. Ain’t nobody Caucasian

littleman April 9, 2012 at 10:15 pm

Why is that racist? So not being white is an Insult according to you? She is just pointing out that nobody is pure white anymore.

KimJ February 5, 2012 at 6:22 pm

The pure racism against Caucasians on this celeb’s page is astonishing. Why haven’t these racist comments been pulled yet???

@ Storm, you are incredibly ignorant.

lanadelrey September 23, 2015 at 12:31 pm

You are ignorant Sicilians are caucasians, they are from europe, Jewish people is caucasian because middle east is consider arab caucasians or semitic (IDK if I spelled right but anyways) Maltese can be caucasians ‘couse they have italian ancestry and Italy is an european country so they are white!

lanadelrey September 23, 2015 at 12:36 pm

and tan skin is a caucasian skin color! ok lets say that the average north american is more than 90% white, well for me 80% and up are considered white

Angelika January 29, 2012 at 4:32 pm

Lol your reasoning for this nonsence Robert is from an Afrocentric site called Rastafarian that provides indept and Varing viewpoints in Africa and African Diaspora.Nearly all on this site bar some have Afrocentic views who think the world owes them something and hate that people on here have European heritage get over yourselves. Trying to claim everyone as yours or mixed is quite sad ye must have some real self identity problems.Plenty of other country have been treated like shit over the years stop trying to act as though its just ye that was treated bad and get over it.

1.25 million Europeans were sold as slaves captured by Barbary pirates and sent to North Africa between 16 and 19 century.

IN Rome people from all over Europe were sold as slaves and used as gladiators along with more slaves from the Berbers,Greeks Britons Slavs ,Celts ,Jews were used for labour and for amusement (sex slaves)

Spanish people used Natives as slaves when they arrived in South America but many died from diseses that were brough in from Europe that the Spanish were immune to so they brought slaves from Africa in.

Ireland was controlled by English for 700 years used as slaves and sent to prisons in Austrulia if they did something as simple as stealing food for there family.From 1641 to 1652 500,00 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,00 were sold as slaves that was half the the late 1600 s over 100,000 Irish children between 10 and 14 were sent as slave to the West Indies,Virgina and New England another 52,000 Irish were sent to Barbados .And 2000 Irish children were taken to Jamicia and sold as slaves to English setellers

So basically get over yourselves stop acting as if ye were the only ones hard done by just because whites in America treated ye bad stop talking shit about every person that lives in Europe as if it is there problem because its not.I have nothing to do with America and neither does my ancestors thank god .Move on stop making the past lead your life.Every country has its history there is nothing you can do to change it.And there is many more countries that have been mistreated but it was too many to write down

Im sure there will be the great reasoning to my comment with thumbs down showing the ignorance of people on here
But my views are right and im not a sheep that is going to follow the crowd like most here minus a few.

KimJ February 5, 2012 at 6:38 pm

@Ethniceleb: Can you PLEASE pull these purely racist comments from this page?

BTW, a “white” person according to the United States gov. is someone that is from either Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa. My skin may be a lovely peach/creamy color, but my heritage is that of England, Ireland, and Denmark. I am very proud of my European heritage and also due to its purity with a pinch of Royal blood through King Henry III. I am so sick and tired of the backwards way things work. It is perfectly socially tolerable for Caucasians to be treated with pure racism and expect them to sit back and watch their culture and heritage to be done away with as though the persons with darker skin are somehow superior and allowed to be total racist pigs without consequence.

Last year, there was a news report from a local paper in Wisconsin about how a mob of black people attacked innocent Caucasian fair goers that were leaving and eye witnesses said that the innocent black fair goers that were leaving were left alone. This didn’t make it to ANY national news stations or papers. If that was a mob of Caucasians specifically attacking innocent black fair goers that were leaving it would have made international news and revisited again and again. Europeans, don’t believe the liberal media that paints Caucasians in the US as racist pigs. Most Caucasians in the US are not like that at all and in fact have what is called “White Guilt” where they allow themselves to be railroaded as to prove they are not “racist”. My own grand parents voted for Obama purely because he is black and not about his policies to prove that they are not racists (never have been!!).

My other European friends that have lived in the US for over a year have realized that it is quite the opposite! They are treated with racism and the nonsense that is propagated that only persons with darker skin tones are persecuted against is totally false. I have actually had persons of African or Indian or Asian descent tell me flat out that it is quite impossible for them to be racist as they are not “white”. This of course comes right after a racist comment.

On top of this, the media makes it appear that Europe and its ancient culture is being taken over by non-Europeans. Even The Guardian referring to native Britons as “white Britons”. No, they are NATIVE!! Get is straight!!

Robert February 7, 2012 at 8:17 pm

English/Irish/Danish = mixed

I’ve heard of multiple instances of innocent non-whites being attacked while attending a fair. Here is one:

Barack Obama Jr is only half black, but that half comes from Kenya and is very likely undiluted.

I’m guessing that the majority of “white Britons” are not native. They could be German, Italian, French, Polish, Dutch, Scandinavian, Slavic, Iberian, Greek Cypriot, Hungarian or whatever else isn’t English, Welsh, Scottish, Cornish, or (while not on the main island , does it count?) Manx.
The majority of British DNA came from Iberia before recorded history was developed, not long after the last major Ice Age (long enough for small scale evolution to take place) with the exception of the recent flood of immigrants mostly to England over the last few decades, no individual later invasion contributed more than 5%.

Alice January 10, 2013 at 11:26 pm

The Ibernian ice refuge theory is not correct. Genetics has been updated. Look up more recent information Robert.

Anna Rae December 11, 2012 at 5:35 pm

I’m black and I see racism toward white people quite often in my town. Done by blacks. I live in Alabama and I hate it! I love everyone that treats me with respect I don’t hold on to the past because it’s not important. Most black people now a days are finding an excuse not to work and are living off the tax payer’s dime which is so sad.. Sometimes I wish I came from another race, how ignorant some blacks are, and I feel bad for those people in Wisconsin.

fuzzybear44 December 12, 2012 at 8:58 am


sounds like another bubbalicious comment?

No try out right lie

fuzzybear44 December 12, 2012 at 9:04 am

@Anna Rae

I don’t know where you live in Alabama ,but my relatives there give a different story.Now if you don’t want to see an ignorant black person,stop looking in the mirror

fuzzybear44 December 12, 2012 at 9:18 am


I wasn’t attacking you ,I sorry if it seem that way

Anna Rae December 11, 2012 at 5:30 pm

I love you! I’m black and I understood this perfectly (:

fuzzybear44 December 12, 2012 at 8:55 am

Your not a black person,so cut it out.

John January 29, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Stick your Afro-centric BS where the sun doesn’t shine

storm January 29, 2012 at 1:27 pm

yeah. for someone who loved light features, hitler didn’t have any himself. Neither did his Nazi party for the most part.
