A 23andMe DNA test taken by Mila stated that her genetic ancestry is:

*96%-98% Ashkenazi Jewish

Mila has also said:

The amount of guilt that I’ve perfected the use of – already on my 3-year-old – is magical… I took a 23 and Me test, where you find out… what’s your DNA… and I’m thinking “I’m going to be exotic… there’s going to be something wonderful about me.” No, ya’ll, I am 96% Ashkenazi Jew. You know what that means? I’m inbred. I am really Jewish, you guys. There is nothing about me that’s exotic. I am a Jew. You know what that means? Guilt.

    Yes she is “white.” However, slavic people are a middle eastern white. Also middle eastern people and africans are much more pure raced than inhabitants of America(white/black americans) and Europe, for the most part. Yes she could be considered white, no she is not the “white” most americans are familiar with.
    America is more focused on race while other countries, color/culture/geographic origin.
    Living in America, no I would not consider her a white girl, just as I wouldn’t consider adriana lima(afro-brazilian) a black or mixed girl, I consider them foreign/exotic. However, if they were born american to a long line of americans who migrated many years ago, white/black/mixed is what they would be considered as to Americans. {Hope I provided some sort of understanding in lamest terms}
    Outside of the US, usually, the region you’re from is more important.
    Americans are the most hung up on specific racial groups. Sad part is we’re the mutts :)

    Interesting Fact: Hitler gave many europeans the title aryan when in fact it refers to majorly Middle Easterners and North Indians. generally pure raced people.

      I’m surprised, that person from slavic country doesn’t know this diference.All, russian people I saw, are middle-
      blond with gray-blue eyes.
