    A DNA test found she had Romani ancestry, therefore Snooki is more than Euro and Latin American. IDK where someone got the idea she’s British or Irish, unless it’s to reference Geri Halliwell or Victoria Beckham of the Spice Girls.

        This “Iitaliano90” guy thinks that Italians are something special, He lives in parallel universe, Lol.

          @Andrew133 I think this is the guy you should be calling “racist” (a word that gets thrown around too loosely these days). My comment regarding Snooki’s appearance wasn’t racist. It was merely an observation. This is a duplicate account of “muricansareallmutts” who is now claiming southern italians are black lol.

    • Andrew133 says:

      ” short brown skin hispanic” WTF, who care about Italians ??! Italians to me are not White, Dude you think that anyone want to be Italian. Lol, go and do something useful

      • italiano90 says:

        I meant no malice with my comment. It was merely an observation. She is short, has brown skin and she is of central and south american origin. Racially she is predominately a mongoloid.

        • passingtime85 says:

          “Mongoloid” don’t see the -oids titles used much anymore

        • Andrew133 says:

          Your comment screams racist as Hell, Damn it is one of the most racist comments I have read on this forum, let’s imagine we describe an African person (this short dark skin with wide nose African guy), It doesn’t seem racist to you??!, What the hell you think Italians are ???! Lol, they are the darkest in all Europe, many of them look mixed (alessia cara) because they have a lot of MENA features on them, Italians on USA for many years weren’t considered White, You think that Italians are something special and all people want to be Italians, and WTF “Mongoloid” ??! Dude do you live in 18th century ??!, there is no genetic research use this stupid word again, what about this Albanian model (adrola dushi), I think she is also “Mongoloid”, Right ??!
