    He gotta be the whitest Brazilian president since the end of the dictatorship in 1985. Itamar Franco and Tancredo Neves were pretty white but i they it’s very likely they had some native and maybe black ancestry because they were from Minas Gerais, and Portuguese+Native mix it’s quite commun there. Im from Londrina, witch is an uper south city known for it’s strong german and italian influence, and even i, being as white as snow, have black and native ancestry down the line (my dad is 1/8 black and my mom is 1/8 native, but they look full white and so does their parents). Anyway, too bad this Bolsonaro guy it’s not doing much for german and italian-brazillians, he even mocks his heritage sometimes…

    No. He does not look German at all. He is mostly fully Italian, so his looks is very common in Northern Italy, Tuscany and to a a lesser extent anywhere in Italy. Besides that, he confortably pass for a Frenchman.
