This is just not true:
214 - The Blonde Map of Europe | Strange Maps | Big Think

20-49% of Germans have light hair, which is the same as southern England and less than the rest of the UK. Ben Franklin didn't consider the Germans to be "White" with the exception of the Saxons because they were too dark.

I see. That notorious Latin American user with blonde hair fetish and anti-Anglosphere attitude has reincarnated.
"Germans mostly blond"-OH! "Far more blonde than people from the UK" That's a lie. Did you spend too much time reading Nazi propaganda? Ever been to Germany?! All of my German friends here in Berlin (from EVERYWHERE in Germany such as Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, several true Berliners etc.) seem to be rather brown or dark-haired. Not a single light blonde GERMAN person in my direct surroundings! Now comes the kicker: the most blonde person here I know is in fact an Anglo-Australian.
So, please stop with that blondism fetish. Nobody cares. And yeah, many White Americans look like Germans. Except the clothing. And the weird hair cuts that some (middle-aged) German women tend to have here (streaked with all kinds of 'reddish' and 'purplish' highlights)

I finally had to put Traveler86 on my ignore list. He is just so unrelenting with his nonsense. He has never even left South America and he claims the most absurd things about the appearance of others.

Oh, and I agree that I think he has some weird fetish for blondes. lol.

Yes all south americans are black or very indigenous looking, just as all the white americans are naural blondes such as the very natural looking blondes () lady gaga or madonna

Thos maps are done by some canadian anthropologist without any scientific study.

There are 20 types of maps and supossed scientific studies claiming different things.

I've been in England many times and very few adults are true blonde, the most common complexion by far among adult british/english people is pale skin, mousy to dark brown hair and blue or mixed eyes.

Also benjamin frankling called swedish people swarthy LOL

compare the difference between your everyday britons and other germanic people..

Bunch of fake colort hair girls and the guy on the middle has a fairly typical looks among british people

British local football team, mostly mousy and dark brown haired people there:

Northern german students.. Big difference with british Isles..

What about the swarthy northern germans?

Anybody who has been to those countries could easily notice that difference! Anyways I prefer blonde women so I can see those things from the first minute

I have been to germany a couple of times and most germans are blonde or blondish at least opposed to the more brown and dark brown hair of anglophone white countries! I felt I stood out much more among native germans than among native englishmen or Irish who have tons of dark haired white people!!!

Anybody who has been to britain knows there is no way 50-79% of brits are fair haired. The big majority of adult population has either mousy or dark brown hair, very few blondes for northern european standards.

ask any current british people for god's sake I've never seen a true brit claiming most brits are blonde or anything close to that.. Half of europe hs more natural blondes than the UK.

British student protest.. hardly any blondes there..

Your map claims most of the Uk has same pigmentation as denmark

What about people like me, who are mixtures of both-along with Irish, Scottish, Welsh, French, Swiss, and many others (I'm sure)?

Point being-there are many millions of Americans whose ancestries are so diluted and mixed that it's impossible to say for sure where "English" stops and "German" begins.

That doesn't change anything, as multiple ancestry is included in the census.
