her name and appearance are so misleading

First she looks older than she was born 1972. She looks like 50+

plus she looks british

Wolfman July 31, 2018 at 6:16 am

I agree that her name and appearance is misleading, but she’s pure Punjabi Jat Sikh with many of our clans tracing their origins to Afghanistan/Central Asia. Plus, she doesn’t look British, but could pass as Middle Eastern or a Southern European Med.

SHE LOOKS SO WHITE

PLUS WITH THAT NAME i thought she might be of WELSH descent

Adrian1Cram February 26, 2016 at 11:42 pm

I’m white, I live in a white neighbourhood and she looks white. Most people seem to think so.

Also indian isn’t a race, you can’t look “indian”, the same way you can’t look “mexican”.

ShaoKahn666 February 29, 2016 at 2:02 am

You are clearly exaggerating apart from few dumbasses like you.I am pretty sure not many whites would take her for a white beacuse I have asked some and republicans called her a raghead.Ann coulter wants her to be deported.Yeah you see most are not fooled like you.If she looks white then bobby jindal looks white and you wouldnt agree with that though you think she looks white.If she looks white to you in this pic,Then you are dumb or blind.Judge for yourself.

ShaoKahn666 February 24, 2016 at 6:12 am

Anyone saying she looks white is either a troll or a stupid person.She looks americanized indian.I agree some of her features sometimes gives a white vibe but that doesnt make her fully white.

Wolfman March 6, 2016 at 6:59 am

I partially agree with you ShaoKahn666, but she’s Caucasian which can’t be denied? Her caste has more NE Euro Baltic and Nordic DNA than Iranians, Iraqis, Turkish, Southern Italians and Maltese so what are they classed as? LOL

Adrian1Cram February 12, 2016 at 10:30 pm

Typical white lady, she looks exactly like my white neighbour. I’m guessing she’s from the northern region of india.

ShaoKahn666 February 24, 2016 at 6:10 am

Stop lying she deoesnt look white at all she looks closer to black i am sure you are trolling.

Adrian1Cram February 26, 2016 at 11:39 pm

The majority tends to think she’s white. She looks white, she doesn’t look black at all. Just cause she’s successful your trying to claim her as black.

Besides how would you know anything about white with that middle eastern name of yours? Being white I’m pretty sure I know my race better then you.

ShaoKahn666 February 29, 2016 at 1:57 am

Lol far from that,The republicans called her a raghead.You’re exaggerating here,She looks distinctly indian not white you dumbass.You are not a real white person either.If you knew your race better than you would know she doesnt look white.

ShaoKahn666 February 29, 2016 at 2:30 am

“The majority tends to think she’s white”
And what makes you say that?
You are one blind idiot and I dont believe the majority is just blind like you.I bet your some self hating white person or a liberal.Heck,You could even be an indian masquarading as ‘white’ and Im not middle eastern I am white actually a real one unlike you and my name is based on my favorite mortal kombat character in case your ignorant ass didnt know that.

Alex234 October 25, 2015 at 12:12 pm

I thought she was white lol

ShaoKahn666 February 24, 2016 at 6:10 am

Troll 10/10

Wolfman March 6, 2016 at 7:01 am

She’s Caucasian, but not White and only a stupid idiot would deny that Alex234.

Wolfman August 29, 2015 at 4:06 am

If Punjabi Sikhs are not Caucasian why is her daughter whiter than Barack Obama, Kim Kardashian and Jessica Alba Idiot with pure blue eyes, chestnut brown hair plus I some relatives that look like her daughter how come idiot? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153558252179738&set=a.10150128354544738.303065.712044737&type=1&theater

Her Ydna like is also most likely R1a too idiot very common in Punjab which originates from Ukraine where the blue eyed gene comes from. LOL https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/4d/R1a_distribution_Eurasia.jpg

Wolfman August 29, 2015 at 12:44 am

It’s ‘you’re’ not ‘you are’ you idiot! How come I have better English and grammar than you then? Like I said before you retard it’s not what historians and anthropologists say you do know that? She’s Punjabi Sikh they have more Nordic NE Euro blood than Iranians, Arabs, Jews and even Italians. Her caste only have about 25% South Indian, 14% Mongolian, 25% NE Euro, 35% West Asian idiot. http://www.anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?2200-History-of-Jatts-and-the-case-of-the-elevated-NE-Euro-comonent

Nikki’s parents. They aren’t remotely european, Caucasian, white etc looking. Why Haley is lighter I have no idea. But South Asians origins don’t derive from the Caucasian race. Of course Europeans colonized India many years ago but her parents are are not mixed.

cwm85 August 28, 2015 at 6:25 pm

Indians are more on the australoids and mongoloids… they aren’t Caucasians…

andrew August 28, 2015 at 6:42 pm

most Indians are actually kinda brown, also due to climate adaption. Pakistani/North Indians are more Caucasian on average

Adrian1Cram February 12, 2016 at 10:22 pm

Indians are caucasian. They are put under the caucasian label, some indians can be mongoloids but they are at the china border.

Wolfman August 28, 2015 at 8:23 am

Are you retarded? It’s not what historians and anthropologists say you do know that? She’s Caucasian, but not white. If she was born 332 miles west from her ancestral village in Amritsar in Afghanistan she would be classed as Caucasian white you idiot.

cwm85 August 28, 2015 at 2:17 pm

You are an idiot. She is Indian not Caucasian.

Adrian1Cram February 12, 2016 at 10:18 pm

Indian isn’t a race, that’s like saying mexican is a race.

They are put under the caucasian label by the census. She is caucasian.

Wolfman August 28, 2015 at 8:04 am

She’s Caucasian, but not White, which is obvious. When you determine race you look at facial features, DNA and not skin colour you do know that? Plus why does she carry the blue-eyed gene then? Plus is this sexy woman not Caucasian? So Iranian, Armenians, Turkish people are not white either? https://instagram.com/p/yD-7fvDSXQ/?taken-by=preetijaan

cwm85 August 28, 2015 at 8:13 am

She is INDIAN Can you not read? Her parents are from india, they are not white…. her husband is white you moron. Her parents are not white and born from idia. Her parents are full bloodied indians from india. Why are trying to make her Caucasian?

Wolfman August 28, 2015 at 8:49 am

So Osama bin Laden an Arab is white, but Nikki Haley a Punjabi Sikh is non-white? LOL

Man in NY December 22, 2017 at 5:16 pm

Wolfman: “She’s Caucasian, but not White, which is obvious. When you determine race you look at facial features, DNA and not skin colour you do know that?”

You are correct.

Wolfman August 28, 2015 at 5:28 am

So Osama bin Laden an Arab is white, but Nikki Haley a Punjabi Sikh is non-white? Plus her caste has more NE European DNA than Iranians, Arabs and even Italians which has been confirmed by many DNA test’s on her community. Also, how come Nikki Haley’s children have pure blue eyes? Which we know the gene comes from Ukraine and her caste has been proven to descend from the Sarmatian Scythian Aryans.

cwm85 August 28, 2015 at 7:47 am

She isn’t white. She is Indian. Why are people trying to make her what she is not? She knows she isn’t white. Well maybe she wants to be but her parents aren’t. She is just a lighter Indian. Indians come in many different shades. Even Caucasians come in different shades pending on what area of Europe. When I look at her closely I see Indian. She certainly would not be mistaken for someone native of untied kingdom, france, spain, germany, poland, Ukraine etc. She just happens to be a lighter indian. Hell I know an Indian lighter than her!

andrew August 28, 2015 at 3:50 pm

she’s not White=European but she’s Caucasian. That’s why she actually looks kinda European, even thought slightly different

She looks Iranian in this pic

cwm85 August 28, 2015 at 6:33 pm

Most ridiculous statement ever. She’s not white but she’s Caucasian? I think you have expanded the Caucasian race just a tad bit. Her parents are Indians, born in India. She might be seen as white in West Africa but that’s it! Lol.. she is just a lighter indian. But her hair, facial structure, cheeks, nose, eyes favor someone who are Indian, south asia origin. I’ve seen many people doing my life who were Indian and have her traits. She does not look white or Caucasian. At best she could pass for arab, Nepalese, middle eastern. You guys have an expanded view on what a Caucasian is and Indian. If she was just a tone darker no way would you all be saying this.

andrew August 28, 2015 at 6:40 pm

yes, she’s not white/European but to an untrained eye she looks it, as in the profile pic. The one I posted is the most exotic I found.

Man in NY August 28, 2015 at 5:51 pm

Believe it or not, from an anthropological perspective, most people in India are considered Caucasian, including those who are dark as “Black” Africans.

andrew August 28, 2015 at 6:11 pm

I dont believe that. Indians are a mixture of Caucasians, Australoids and even Mongoloids.

cwm85 August 28, 2015 at 6:40 pm

There are many different ethnic groups on India. But pure Indians are NOT Caucasian there origins are from a totally different genetic makeup. They are part of south Asia. Indians and those of north asia believe or not or more related.

Adrian1Cram February 12, 2016 at 10:28 pm

Cwm85 there’s no such thing as “pure indian”, indian isn’t a race – this defies your entire point. That’s like saying pure canadians or pure hispanics.

Also like it or not, indians are put under the caucasian group, that is a fact, not believing it won’t change the facts. I’m sorry.

cwm85 August 17, 2015 at 1:46 pm

She doesn’t look white… she looks like a lighter Indian. People really need to read a book on different people of europe and India. She doesn’t look full european, Caucasian at all.

neiltennant August 17, 2015 at 1:17 pm

she looks like white who was on vacation

sparkles180 August 17, 2015 at 2:07 am

She looks fully white, especially with that straight smile. Would have never guessed her ethnicity.

cwm85 July 20, 2015 at 4:58 pm

Most people from the region her parents are from are lighter Indians. I think she has tried to mostly ignore her race in political office.

cwm85 July 20, 2015 at 4:54 pm

She definitely looks sorta middle eastern, Indian. Not all Indians are dark brown. Duh people.

neiltennant May 20, 2015 at 5:56 am

she looks so white

shobohunter December 11, 2014 at 5:15 am

Panjab, is a state not an ethnicity.
Ranghdawa are clans/cast gotra of jatt people in northern west region of India. Although
Jat” is an elastic label applied to a wide-ranging, traditionally non-elite,community but it worth mentioning.

DAngelo November 7, 2014 at 4:47 am

one of those light Northern Indians who can pass for white, she obviously don’t have much Australoid blood…

J.J. November 24, 2013 at 12:48 am

correction; her eyes are hazel and her hair is virtually black (noirette)

andrew November 23, 2013 at 5:51 pm

politicians are interesting
