And then the fact that I am a man. My sisters look average white, but men look darker, because we donīt get pregnant. When a woman gets pregnant she needs as much d-vitamin as possible, and the easiest way to get it is from the sunlight. The whiter you are, the more d-vitamin you get from the sun. The darker you are, the less d-vitamin you get, that's why black people tend to suffer from d-vitamin deficiency when they live in northern countries. But Black women are a few shades lighter than Black men.
What?

But other people say "nonsense, you are just brunette, but you look as local as anyone else". So I guess it's a very subjective stuff, all this "looks" thing.

You were BORN in Spain. That does not make you Spanish by blood. Also, I do not know if that were you on the pic, or someone else. Everyone assumed it's you.
Person in the pic - and it could have been bigger one - has facial features of European Hebrew. Hebrews have many peoples in them, including Arabs. Reason being, it's turned out wide spread nostrils, and shorter nose. Not turned up, shorter, proportionally to the skull size. It's European mix blood sign, for Hebrews that normally have more flashy noses, turned down and longer. Eyes also fall into this category. Explains olive skin either.
I almost said - Israeli soldier. Kinda looked like it, from the new immigrants wave from Europe to Israel.
