The pigment of her skin doesn't determine whether or not she's predominantly of European descent, lol. Race is a social construct. She also tans very easily and also has naturally curly & coarse hair (a gene that predominantly hails from Africa) something that is most likely tied into her Middle Eastern origins, because Lebanon had a mixture of people in it, including Africans. It'd be interesting to know if she ever does do a DNA test!

Interesting

The African gene could be passed on by Nydia too.
African roots are very present in the Colombian Caribbean.

Even Sofia Vergara has African and indigenous genes.

Our mixtures must be celebrated, not white washed.


But yeah who cares they're jet set people. Nothing too relevant.

But half of her IS from Europe, Southern Europe to be exact. Not everyone in Europe looks like Germans! And yes, half of her is from Lebanon, which is still considered a "White" country. But as you said, race is a social construct so none of this really matters! In other words, it's stupid to accuse her of trying to be "white." That was/is my point.

 

But yes, it would be cool if she got a DNA test!

I mean Im from a similiar area and my Grandma touted all her life she was of 100% Spanish Euro descent, the dna test showed she had 40% African admixture and also Indigenous. Were all mixed with more than we know sometimes.
