  2. Fatmonkey says:

    Her ancestry would also include distant French-Huguenot (follow the ‘Mullins’ line through Ariel’s 3 x great-grandmother, Nuerva ‘Eve’ Stanley; it would lead to Abraham Des Moulins, who came to Virginia from France in 1700).

    Greeks don’t look white at all, they are just like turks

    • Cossette says:

      What you mean is that they don’t always look like the stereotypical white American or European. However most Caucasian people have dark hair/eyes and their skin comes in many shades.

    • cwm85 says:

      Turks are mostly European in origin. Like Doctor Oz is turkish but his admixture text was like 80 plus European. A lot of people of the middle east are Caucasian.

      • sarahle says:

        turkey is not middle east.
        many turks are mongoloid and not caucasian.
        dr.oz doesnt represent turkish nation.
        he happened to be that mix but in general turks are mainly mongoloid.

    • lelo4 says:

      LOL The only Turks who resemble Greeks are Western Turks who guess what have a lot of Greek blood. The rest of Turks are mixed race with Mongoloid and even South Asian blood. Greeks are not even fully Southern European, since 1/4 of their DNA is Slavic/Northeast European.
