Wow. She is very exotic!

Is there any census records (or similar) about her mother’s side? And is this her grandmother?:

So her great grand mother was Filipina… making her 1/8th. 12.5 percent. If she was a quarter Maybe her asian ethnicity would’ve been more visible on her facial features.

She has English ancestry as well

Was her Cuban ancestor Spanish-Cuban, Afro-Cuban, or a mixture of both? The reason I ask is because her nose bridge appears to be somewhat flattened which could suggest that she may have some degree of recent non-white heritage.

Her Cuban-born grandmother (whose father was Cuban and whose mother was French) is listed as “White” on a U.S. Census, but that doesn’t completely rule out some African ancestry.

Her nose bridge is just a little thicker… but her beak is still pointy…

cwm85 September 1, 2015 at 10:07 am

Perhaps her aisan ancestry shows their since their noses are broad and flat too…

Ethnicity is “Italian, Caucasian: (!!???)

First off, Italians are Caucasians, and secondly, Caucasian is a racial classification NOT an ethnicity!

Somebody needs to go back to school, or read a book! lol!

your not caucasian just for being italian,or are you under the impression that there are no blacks in italy?

andrew June 10, 2013 at 1:16 pm
