Nadine Velasquez is an American actress and model. She is known for her role as Catalina Aruca on the television series My Name Is Earl. She is of Puerto Rican descent.
Obviously Amerindian and Spanish (duh)
Obviously Spanish, African and Amerindian. Triracial.
Yes, she looks aproximattely like 65% Spanish and 35% Amerindian.
I’m sure her looks are very deceiving, she most likely has at least 3 or 4 different ethnic backgrounds , not just two
Thier is definitely Africa in her mix. 99 percent of Puerto Ricans are part African. The average on the island is 20 percent and many have 50 percent African and more. Puerto Ricans arent just white and Indian. The Tainos died out . So they are mostly European and African mixes with lesser Indian.
You’re right that most Puerto Ricans are multiracial but wrong that
“A lot” of them are 50% or over. It is very RARE for a Puerto Rican to be under 50% European. Even the darker skin ones with more visible SSA phenotype are usually more european (genetically).
Also, not all Puerto Ricans have a very low Taino percentage. Some have visible Mongoloid traits like Gina Rodriguez.
Dominicans are usually more SSA than Puerto Ricans and Cubans and it definitely shows. I dont think Ive ever seen a “White passing” Dominican the way that I see “white passing” Cubans and Puerto Ricans.
