I'm talking about Europeans with lighter features.

Don't laugh at white people who say they are Native American. I'm confirmed by dna and ancestry 32% Amerindian; my husband hasn't been tested but his mother is NA (looks like Geronimo's daughter) and our daughter looks white (he and I are both brown).

Funny how all through out these posts, being "White" is somehow degrading.... Get over it.

I don't think anybody has said that.

In Southern Europe most people have dark eyes and dark hair. And last time I checked, Southern Europeans have 0 percent Native American admixture.

Tony Danza for example did not get his dark looks because his great great grandmother was a Cherokee princess.

That's fine, but I was talking specifically about Europeans with lighter features like those in my family and families that I know. Get it through your head. And by the way, high cheekbones and almond-shaped eyes are not exclusively Native American traits.

Please tone it down--"if you disagree, disagree politely"

If this escalates, infractions will be issued.

I don't know what you mean by "bad mishmash" (sarcasm is unclear). It was the scientific hypothesis* based primarily on tools, until February 2014.
Thank you for pointing to the very recent DNA findings.

Correction noted. Recently, February 2014, DNA testing on an ancient infant (Anzick-1) was published to point to Asian and NOT European roots:

"By sequencingthe genome of the infant recovered at the Anzick site, the international teamof researchers gained the most vivid insight yet about who these people mightactually have been. They compared the DNA of the Clovis infant to severaldifferent genomes, including a 24,000-year-old sample from a young man buriedon the banks of Lake Baikal in Siberia, a 7,000-year-old sample from Spain anda 4,000-year-old sample from Greenland. The Clovis DNA showed the mostsimilarity with that of the Siberian youth, whom scientists genetically linkedwith today’s Native Americans late last year." (February 13, 2014)
Ancient Infant
*Ref the article you cited.

This! It's crazy how many people don't get it!

It's not that somebody else doesn't get it, it's him that doesn't get it. I'm seriously done in this thread. I'm getting nothing out of this.
