    Default Do White Americans look like Europeans?

    IMO, most White Americans could fit in Britain and Ireland since most Whiteams are of British/Irish origin.

    But some European posters on this forum say White Americans look distinct from Europeans.

    What are your thoughts?

    Well Descent is one thing , a lot of White Americans Have a little Native background I believe. Most importantly they are Euro muts so that creates new phenotypes. And what factors does American Diet and Environment play on their looks, I sometimes, or at least used to think that White Americans looked different.

    Most white Americans look like their country of origin, or something close to the composite of their ancestry, or in some cases, "European" overall but not fitting to a specific country. An Italian/Irish mix for instance will often look Spanish or French, but often neither quite Italian nor Irish. But sometimes you get mixes that will produce something that looks European but not fitting in any one nation.. i.e. a Portuguese and Russian mixture will look "European" but not really fit in any specific country.

    well everyone here seems to think i look like a finn so...



    i think that it depends on the individual, i think the level of mixing between european ethnicities in america has led to some of them having a more generic look i guess. mixing of the various phenotypes and what not. where as you can still find in parts of europe phenotypes that are native to that region more or less.
    one step closer to world domination.

    I read most white Americans are of German origin and that's the number 1 reported ancestry for Americans.

    That is right as a single ethnicity, but in regards to all of the inhabitants of the British Isles (English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish) the white population is still overwhelmingly British in nature. In my opinion the links between the US and the British isles is so interwoven that it's undeniable America at it's core is mostly British in nature (in regards to white folks).
