Genealogy of Lynda Carter (focusing on her father’s side) – http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com
your dad is European, your mom is spanish heritage, if your mom was indian-mexican i dont think than lynda could be too caucasian
Her mother is part Amerindian. Do you use Google Images?
I’m Beige and tan very easy.
Got ahead of myself there, put John Cena and Sheamus next to each other. John has more melanin. Different shade.
Her hair texture looks mixed, its very thick. Amerinidan influence, possibly African from Mexico. In Aruba many triracials look like her.
Are you a racist?
who assumes that all white people have thin hair
well I’m white and people In my family have extremely thick hair
have you ever heard of lorde or Charliexcx or andie McDowell
all white with thick hair
Linda Carter admitted herself, she is part half Mexican. Yes thin, fine, fly away hair is a specific white characteristic, Asians and Africans have thicker and heavier hair, most whites do not. Its a fact.
@Thomas1987, its not racist, its a true observation, most Caucasian whites have thin , fine and fly away hair and have to use volumizers and hair thickeners. Asians and Africans have heavier hair. Its true, you can determine admixture by that fact.
What a grimy comment. Even if her mother looks Mestiza, she looks 100 percent Caucasian. The 70s were different days if she didn’t look White she wouldn’t have even gotten the role.
If you look at photos of Lynda’s mom, it’s very obvious she’s Mestiza. So yeah, Lynda has some amount of Native ancestry as well.
Well she has a beautiful combination and when my daughter was in high school other students use to call her Wonder Woman cause she looked like Lynda. Those same gorgeous eyes!
As per her looks she has nothing mexican. She looks 100% Caucasian (irish)
Bích, Mexican is a nationality not a race. That’s why I dislike people like you.
Mexican isn’t a race, it’s a nationality/cultural affiliation, and Lynda grew up influenced by her Mexican roots in New Mexico (which has a rich Hispanic heritage).
@Dropit, except for her thick hair and ability to tan
“Ability to tan” you’re a ——- idiot if you think “whites” can’t tan just so know you not all Europeans are pale just the ones located in colder climates of Europe (Northwestern) which needs pale skin to produce vitamin D , Europeans can range from fair and light to MEDIUM tones, we’re originally a dark skinned race related to Arabians and Persians (Hablogroup R) i have both R1a and R1b.
Just so you know*
Look at the famous WWE superstar Sheamus for example, that’s what I call pale. Lol
Thought curse words got censored on here? Guess not.
