    Don’t forget that Central-Southern Americans and Southern Italians both the descendants of Northern Spaniards have dark hair and dark eyes cause they inherited from them means that their Spaniard ancestors were dark like the current.

    Add Spanish Jewish tag

    • Dar says:

      That’s because she is a Jew from Spain and her mother had Sephardi roots in Spain

      • muricansrallmutts says:

        No no no her mother IS NOT Spaniard she’s Australian of many roots, her father maybe can have other background too.
        That Ramos is atypical to be Spaniard real Spaniards fully Spaniards have black/brown hair and eyes like the stereotype that always have a bottom of truth, I live in Europe I met many Spaniards tourists in my country and they were all dark hair and dark eyes, only three were light hair and light eyes but can’t say if they were Spaniards but genetics jokes being light or immigrants growed up in Spain talking Spanish.
        In fact this Ramos has a Baltic Slav face not a common classic Spaniard face.
