    First off, she looks European. And for everyone saying she doesn’t look “white”….why? Because she has dark hair and eyes? Give me a break. As if most of Europe doesn’t have dark hair and eyes? They do BtW, look it up. Have you seen pics of her and her sister when they were little before makeup, touched up photos and spray tans? ….Both her and Kylie have the whitest skin with freckles. They are what they are. So sick of people trying to make people into something they clearly are not.

      First of all it’s extremely racist, EXTREMELY RACIST to believe that all Europeans are just pale.
      Only an ———– could say something so stupid and racist.
      lol If that’s the case then where are the southern europeans?
      Southern europeans are just as europeans as the northern europeans.
      Albanians, Italians, Greeks, Spaniards, Bulgarians, Serbs, Montenegrins, Croatians, Southern french, southern Portuguese, Southern Romanians, etc.
      How many celebrities from southern europe do you geniuses from the land of racism and war mongering do you know?
      Hank Azaria?
      Demis Roussos
      Alex and Vladi
      Mădălina Ghenea
      Antoinette Kalaj
      Martina Ivezaj
      Sebastian Maniscalco
      Pierre Laval
      Larisa Borza

      Look them up!
      Are you telling me that any of those people are pale?
      When guys say they like “white women” or they find “european women” attractive 99% of the time what they mean is southern european.
      It completely shatters the minds of the average american.
