    Blind bitches. I can CLEARLY see she has some Native American in her. If she was 100% Spanish she wouldn’t have those Asian-looking eyes.

      Don’t make me laugh.
      I am 1/8 Japanese and I don’t have asian-looking eyes, and neither do any of my cousins.
      Where in the world do you get your genetic notions.
      If you look at teen pictures you will see that she has no “native” mixing, or if she does it is far back on her bloodline. Please go to Spain and Portugal before you say things like that.

      If she has non-European ancestry it’s not much, she’s a White Colombian. She doesn’t have ‘Asian’ looking eyes (I assume you mean epicanthic folds common in East Asians and Amerindians?), please don’t be so ignorant. Interestingly I read she ‘Latinafied’ (US perception of Latin Americans) herself for a US audience.

      The bad news is that we cannot find her baptismal record yet because Nuestra Señora del Carmen, the church of her baptism, is not yet available in FamilySearch.

  3. AW says:

    She looks very Spanish to me. If she had any African or Native admixture, it’s probably very small.

  4. blue says:
