Looks fully East Asian to me (or Hawaiian).
Didn’t know that she had European in here. She never seemed Eurasian/biracial to me.
Very beautiful woman btw.
I’m part Hawaiian and she doesn’t look Hawaiian at all (she must have a very low quantum).
Hawaiians are Polynesian and the typical phenotype is similar to that of other Polynesian and islander peoples (brown skin, broad nose, large eyes, coarse wavy or curly hair).
So how can she look both East Asian and Hawaiian (Polynesian) ????????
Remember Hawaii was colonized and the people (Hawaiians) faced genocide. The white colonizers brought tons of Asians to Hawaii to work in their sugar plantations.
Hawaiians and other islander/Oceanian peoples ARE NOT ASIAN BTW
Yeah she would be about 5% Hawaiian.
Thought she also had Spanish ancestry with Hawaiian and such. Didn’t expect English.
