    I think they have different facial expressions and mannerisms than Europeans, and that's what makes them different - but I don't know how all Europeans are, so I could be wrong.

    Marcelo Adnet is an example of white Brazilian who claims to be 17% black, I don't think he could pass for European, because he has his own identity.
    thats pretty interesting because i always thought most people viewed white americans as being fairly light(hair,eyes and skin tones) obviously a lot of it is based on media, the "all american" stereotype is usually some blonde/light brown haired farm boy,surfer dude or cheerleader

Also I've heard a lot of americans find english ancestry boring and prefer to claim something else.

    In 23andme most white americans tested cluster way closer to Uk than to anything else

    Id venture to say as high as 70% of european blood in modern white americans comes straight up from Britain or Ireland.
    Hmmm...Well, I'm around 20% Isles heritage personally, but your right about Americans having alot of British ancestry...Your figure of 70% might be a bit high for the average American, though...maybe 65%...........

    Atlantid is the most common phenotype among white americans, so Its very common among brits and Irish way more than anywhere else in continental europe/scandinavia(although its common in some areas of northern/western france). If you mean by darker euro phenotype = dark haired, then yes. Except upper midwest most white americans are definitely more on the dark/brown haired side, although Light eyes should be slighty more common than brown ones, although Im not completly sure about the later.

    I believe this is a significant factor. I have read some researches on this too.
    Especially this gets visible in case of older people (it is mainly guys in their 50-ies who look 'typical American').

    In general, it depends. When I look at pictures of American bands, I cant usually place them in specific place of Europe. For instanc e, Michael Jackson- where could he pass, Sweden?

    seriously though, the most obvious choice is British Isles, but it somehow works only in one side. I mean, I can place Americans in UK easier, but Brits somehow escape America.

    Even take politicians- would you fit David Cameron in USA? or Gordon Brown? Tony Blair? they somehow dont fint America for me. Some Americans dont fit in UK too, like Bill Clinton or John Kerry but some like Nixon or Carter could.
    Am I right or am I wrong?
