    Maybe her ‘Polish’ ancestors were Jewish and not ethnic Poles? That would explain her dark looks.

      “Maybe her ‘Polish’ ancestors were Jewish and not ethnic Poles? That would explain her dark looks.”

      Do you have any actual evidence to support this unfounded and bigoted speculation?
      Are you certain that Polish Jewish= “dark looks” and Polish gentile= light looks?
      Seems to me you’re dealing in hackneyed stereotypes that couldn’t be further from reality.

      Also, this is but ONE photo and lighting conditions alone can radically change a person’s skin complexion in a photo, so can something as simple as a vacation tan or just using tanning beds.
      Why such childish tripe?
      Are you some kind of Eastern Euro with a self esteem issue?

        User Lelo4 is the ———————— mod of a certain “anthropology forum”

          Lots of people fit that bill on Apecity, including their top Administrator Sickalot.
          Sick-Elliot’s favorite fetish is trolling south Italians/Sicilians and morphing them into the Lebanese of southern Europe, all while white washing Greeks into Eastern Europeans.
          Anthroscape is even more infested with window lickers and miscreant spawn of incestuousness one night stands.

          lelo4 reminds me of this —— —– with severe self esteem issues and an inferiority complex that is always giving his totally fact free opinions on Ashkenazi Jews. 13,393 —-posts last I checked.
          I know he slums it on a couple of other forums.
          Someone must of rewarded this no life obsessive compulsive with a Mod position.
          Good for him, this is no doubt the high water mark of his worthless existence…
