“I’m referring more to Lenin because my grandmother lived in Ukraine during that time and my mom came to Israel to get away from that”

She sort of resembles Aishwarya Rai.
I would have thought this chick was partially Indian, she doesn’t look fully white.

She doesn’t look Indian at all, and I can tell you’re jealous of White people, that’s why you go around trolling on White celebrities pages saying they aren’t White. Get a life loser.

I thought maybe she had some African in her or native at least, middle eastern at most. Her nose and lips look like an admixture is there to me.

All ethnic Jews, including Ashkenazi (Eastern/Central European) are of primarily (up to 75%) middle eastern ancestry.

Lol No.

Plenty of White people have thick lips and thick noses, it doesn’t mean they’re part African.

Ashkenazi Jews are typically 5% Middle Eastern or less.

Wolfman August 31, 2015 at 8:20 am

Really? Can you provide a source for that?

passingtime85 August 31, 2015 at 8:42 am

Well, according to my results on 23andme and all the Jewish users that have shared genetic information with me, none of us, except some of the Sephardi cousins, have anything more than a smidgen of Middle Eastern in autosomal composition results.

@J420: The reason they have “thick lips and thick noses” is because they’re most likely mixed with black.

J420 October 21, 2015 at 11:06 pm

I have thick lips and a broad nose, and I’m not part Black. I had a DNA test showing no African percentage.

Have you seen pictures of Olga Kurylenko? She has thick lips and is slavic as hell.

J420 October 18, 2015 at 7:11 am

How can someone look Hispanic? it’s not a race. She looks completely White.
