Her mother is named Fátima Saraiva (the last name sounds Indigenous)
A lot of Afro-Centrists love to diminish the indigenous ancestry in other south american and latin caribbean countries. It’s very strange.
I find it strange that so many African Americans and mixed black and white people claim to be part Indigenous when they aren’t. They claim it is because of shame of being the product of slavery rape from the past, but I don’t buy it. They have started websites and memes and everything promoting interracial black and white couples and relationships. TikTok and YouTube is full of this. So, why try claiming a race that isn’t them? Camila Alves is obviously somewhat African, but I can’t say how much. I think these Afro Centrists are trying to find a way to claim the beauty that comes from Indigenous/European pairings that has little to do with them.

A LOT of people. One girl I watched on YouTube is 20% African (she did a DNA test). She found out she was 0% Native American after telling people she was black, white, and NA from both of her parents (biracial b/w woman and white man) for years. She travels to Latin America and I see she is reading a book by an Afro-Centrist who claims all of Latin America. I see her brother supports Katt Williams after he made a negative comment about Mexicans…yet she met a Mexican American subscriber and looked guilty as hell. It is a jealousy that some African descended people feel towards Native Americans. They claim to be proud to be African, but seem ashamed or reluctant to embrace their African roots…so they attempt to ‘own’ another minority race by making false claims and yelling the loudest…ex: the guys who yell on the street (Hebrew Israelites). I saw they made a video where they rejected a biracial woman black and white b/c she had a black father…yet they claim all Native Americans and Hispanics. As if they don’t realize that the average Hispanic is more European than a woman who is half white and half African American. I have many more examples, but I don’t have all day. They also claim the Olmec civilization though there are Mexicans of Indigenous descent who have those exact features, but with straight hair.
She don’t looks a bit Afro but so strong Arab her appearance is semitic, her phenotype is Levantine.
Her dna can has Afro too but as look she doesn’t seem it.
Really? which Afro-Centrists as you call them, love to do that?
Classic brazillian triracial woman, bet that her Dna test would be like 55-58% european(mostly, if not all, portuguese), and the rest being an almost perfectly balanced mix of black and indignous.
I can’t believe the lying going on here. There is no way she is half black and half white. Maybe triracial, but I doubt she has a very high African percentage. Maybe a quarter.
@blahby No she looks about half African to me. She is actually darker than half African Meghan Markle Prince Harrys wife. Your post makes it seem like a bad thing to be part African.
“about half African” LMFAO. Meghan Markle is hardly “half African” too.
There’s a pic of her dad on Twitter: https://twitter.com/iamcamilaalves/status/1008773750030942209
He looks mostly or entirely Portuguese.
Her mother is multiracial.

@Andrew Meghan Markles mom is black not biracial. Meghan is about half African.
Yes, not biracial but she surely has a solid % of European admixture.
Not everyone in Brazil has indigenous admixture. Many are just African and European admixtures. They can look like anything.
I highly doubt that she is half black. She looks like a typical parda Brazilian woman who is 62% European, 29% African and 13% Amerindian. And also Megan is difficult half black. But like 35% my suggestion. I was seeing the DNA ancestry of biracials in America, half black and white. Most did not have 50% black. They were more European genetically than African.
Ironically Megan Markle stated to have been mistaken for Brazilian.
She looks Indian. Afro. Arab. All together. She has not been very favored in her mix. Your children either. It is very clear that her mixture of dark races is stronger than the white race of her husband, although the children were slightly softened in their skin color.
The kids look white to me. Thats mostly what their genetic makeup is anyway.
@angiemorton Indian is not a race its and admixture
