his mother cheated on his white father with THAI FOOD and P–IS SPRING ROLLS

neiltennant November 9, 2017 at 2:40 pm

There is more than listed there

he looks part Chinese, Jewish or something non white

bearboy November 9, 2017 at 4:30 pm

I really can’t tell if you’re joking or not?

andrew November 9, 2017 at 4:33 pm

He screams half-Japanese or something even in recent pictures, I don’t know which is the reason but he looks it.

bearboy November 9, 2017 at 5:04 pm

oh okay never mind. But I guess Neil Tennant is right, ethnic celebs gets it wrong a lot. Inge Gellatly does have Jewish ancestry, along with Gina Rodriguez. And Jack Kaminer is less than 3/4 Jewish so maybe we should put him in charge of his website in all seriousness.

neiltennant November 27, 2017 at 12:29 am

yes of course im right

i was the first here who doubted miranda cosgroves ethnicity

that was the time where people here screamed at me and said

SHE IS EUROPEAN, GET A LIFE and GO TO EUROPE

now we all know she is half MEXICAN :-)))

andrew November 27, 2017 at 3:28 am

Miranda is only 1/8 Mexican

ashash November 27, 2017 at 7:41 am

LOL. You keep repeating they get it “wrong” when they often don’t.

neiltennant November 27, 2017 at 5:22 am

@andrew

brother you are right

1/8th mexican but her eyes are typical mexican

you know what i mean

i agree with you KRESS’ face looks half japenase

bablah April 3, 2017 at 4:58 pm

I just saw that I linked the wrong census for Robert and Florence, the one Marguerite isn’t in. Sorry.
This is the one I wanted to link:

he looks nothing like white

bablah April 3, 2017 at 3:31 pm

Maternal grandfather was Marshall Truett Shows, son of Marshall Denver Shows and Janie V. Stewart (daughter of Jim Stewart and Leavy Jane ?).

VERY surprised that he’s not part Asian at all. He would be seen as a foreigner in Europe.

Hill June 26, 2017 at 10:50 am
neiltennant November 9, 2017 at 2:41 pm

yes he looks asian partly

but brother please do have patience

Miranda Cosgrove was listed here for 7 Years as pure white of irish, english descent

but i knew there was more

and now we know that she has mexican

kol December 28, 2014 at 3:18 pm

The term Scotch-Irish is wrong and only the Americans use this. It is Scot-Irish or Ulster Scot which is the name to people from lowland Scotland who settled in Northern Ireland during the times of King James VI of Scotland(James I of England and Ireland). Scotch is a drink. People from Scotland are called Scots or Scottish. I should know I am Scottish not Scotch.

tinasheeeee August 11, 2014 at 1:19 pm

He looks Asian or Jewish.

neiltennant November 9, 2017 at 2:42 pm

exactly like my view

Your Mom August 9, 2014 at 7:55 pm

Definitely Does Not Look All The Way White.

Krowl July 29, 2015 at 11:30 am

Epicanthic folds developed in a lot of Europeans from the last ice age, they’re just more prevalent in Asia but they do naturally exist in Europe as well. It clearly states this in Encyclopedia Britannica.

neiltennant November 9, 2017 at 2:42 pm

Thats bull

of course he does look NON WHITE

he has more ethnicities than listed here

Miranda Cosgrove the same

ihatemostpeople March 14, 2014 at 6:56 am

A lot of people like to hide their non-white heritage for whatever reason. There are a ton of celebrities who look clearly black (not entirely, but partially you know wtf I mean), but they say they’re 100% white. I guess they’re afraid it could hurt their career. It’s truly sad. ANYWAY, he definitely looks part Asian.

He looks HELLA Asian there. Come on, you can’t tell me he’s just white!

neiltennant November 27, 2017 at 12:32 am

YES THAT PICTURE SAYS everything

half japanese or chinese

neiltennant November 9, 2017 at 2:43 pm

CHRIS DAUGHTRY looks half black but hides

he shaved his hair for years because he has CURLY AFRO HAIR

Daron January 6, 2014 at 7:36 am

I defientiy see some Asian.

J.J. December 31, 2013 at 10:18 pm

correction; his eyes are hazel (light brown) and his hair is dark brown (brunet)

DougD December 20, 2013 at 5:51 am

I don’t know how to say this without it sounding like a stereotype, but Nathan’s Asian look is in the eyes. I have long-time friends who are of full Scottish ancestry (Jacobean [Catholic] Scots whose family emigrated from Scotland to Nova Scotia and then New England) and they all have that same look. It’s a distinctive part of their ancestral heritage.
I would guess that Nathan’s mother’s ancestry is part of that same strand. I don’t know its origin.

kol December 28, 2014 at 3:21 pm

DougD what you say is true. I am Scottish and I can too look Asian when I smile however my blood is 3/4 Scottish and 1/4 English. No Asian in me and a guy I know is the same but he is 100% Scots.

neiltennant November 9, 2017 at 2:44 pm

NO THATS bull

he has some asian

we had this discussion here due to MIRANDA COSGROVE

andrew October 6, 2013 at 7:44 am

this guy looks Asian

follers October 6, 2013 at 9:18 am

So much so that you would think he is Jewish.

Alice October 6, 2013 at 11:32 pm

He must have something else in his ancestry besides those states especially as his family have been in the US for a long time. He does look like he has some Asian ancestry.

Alice October 6, 2013 at 11:33 pm

“stated” not states.

follers October 6, 2013 at 11:38 pm

His paternal grandfather’s family were very recent German immigrants. His paternal grandmother’s family has been in the U.S. longer, but they are obviously of caucasian, central/western European, descent.

I don’t know anything about his mother’s ancestry, but I doubt she is part Asian or non-white. If she was, that probably already would have been mentioned somewhere by now.

GLXY October 24, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Scotch-Irish is more appropriate than Northern Irish

GLXY October 25, 2012 at 10:37 am

That makes him a Scotch-Irish American

Scotch-Irish immigrated to the United States in the 17th century from Ulster (Antrim is in Ulster) so the term fits perfectly with his ancestor.

Northern Irish is also correct but it’s more used by British and others europeans while Scotch-Irish is more an American term (not only a southern thing)

kol December 28, 2014 at 3:23 pm

The term Scotch-Irish is wrong and only the Americans use this.
