Would you put him in the caucasian race or mongloid in terms of looks? He is "eurasian" by definition but is his face more on one side than the other, considering all facial features, skin, head, eyes, nose, lips and body type.

Keanu described himself as "a bourgeois, middle-class white boy with an absent father, a strong-willed mother, and two beautiful younger sisters."

He is actually quite Nordid or Mediterranean in terms of head shape and dimensions.

His face is also fairly Nordid, although it does look a little funny around the cheekbones.

The nose and eyes are clearly influenced by East Asian genes, although they still may appear European to the untrained observer.

Pigmentation is clearly dark, and obviously not from his white (Nordid) mother.

So yeah, he looks like what he is - a mix.

thanks guys. I would have to agree but i think this is quite ironic as he looks more like his father who is mongloid.

I would say he's a mix between the two.
He looks like his father in terms of his hair and eye pigmentation, his eyes do have a Mongoloid look about them.
But as others have already said, he seems to take his facial structure from his mother. Look at her and Keanu, compared to him and his father.
It's obvious he doesn't have his father's overall head shape, but a far more European type.
Looking at the first pic of him (profile shot) and his mother's pic, the similarty in that respect is quite glaring. His father's profile view would look quite different from either of them.

That said, I would not class him as "White" as such but a mix who exhibits traits from each side
Some people may see him as primarily white, but I suppose that's because things such as his eye and hair pigmentation could resemble those of a Mediterranian type person.However, we know that they are actually Mongoloid in origin so although to the uninformed he could pass as white, knowing his hertiage I think he can only be labelled as a racial mix

In Island terms, Keanu is a "local", meaning of mixed, predominately non-White ancestry. It also means he is not Hawaiian (Polynesian), Samoan, Tongan, etc., in their pure form. Things are very racial in Hawaii. There is an island in the Hawaiian chain called Niihau (pronounced Nee-hau), which is directly west of Kauai. Only full blooded Hawaiians are even allowed to set foot on Niihau. All Whites are called "Hale" ( pronounced Howl-la) by Hawaiians, Samoans, and Locals. This is as close to calling a White a Nigger as it can come. Locals are secure in the Island social-system because they are the most numerous.

So the Hawaiians are in some way succeeding in preserving at least a part of their racial identity?
Quite interesting..i thought they were almost all mixed.

Danubians may show some Mongoloid-like features, even if there's no recent Mongoloid admixture. IIRC, Danubians are partially Ladogan (and Ladogans are partially Mongoloid). That would make the Mongoloid element in Danubians small, but possibly not nil. I have no exact data or genetic studies on this though; it's mostly based on Coon's physical anthropology (who also ascribed minor Mongoloid mixture to the East-Baltids, btw).
Dinarics are not so much a race as a morphological type (at least the way Coon uses the term); it arises when Meds are mixed with Alpines (both 'Med' and 'Alpine' here used in a broad way).

You're probably speaking about neo-danubians, not danubian proto-nordics.
There is no basis for saying that Slavs look part mongoloid, because Slavs are a widespread linguistic group, not a race. It's totally misleading to speak of a Slavic race or a Slavic look.

Again, even if some Slavs do display certain Mongoloid-like characteristics, there is no basis for broad generalizations like Nordhammer's statement:


White-Asian mixes look like Slavs? Many seem to have this perception, even Slavs.

He based this Slavs=Semi-Mongols on two comparations I made:

I compared a photos of Keanu Reeves with photos of a Serbian ( Slavic ) actor Rastko Jankovic:

http://adorocinema.cidadeinternet.com.br/personalidades/atores/keanu-reeves/keanu-reeves03.jpghttp://www.balkanmedia.com/m2/sl/1945-1-1.jpg

The Serbian actor clearly shows zero mongoloid features, on the other hand, Keanu does have some.
The resemblence they have is only in the CAUCASOID features they both posess.

Nordhammer also posted the pictures of 'beauty destroyed' aka Malice, a go-go dancer/erotic model. According to Nordhammer, this woman is nearly half-Mongoloid, having Japanese and Amerindian ancestry. ( I failed to find any data about her ancestry on her homepage: www.beautydestroyed.com ).

http://www.forums.skadi.net/attachment.php?attachmentid=12470

I compared this woman to Goca Trzan, a singer whose ancestry hails from Slovenia:

You can visit the thread in question: http://www.forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=11636&highlight=beauty+destroyed

So... I'd like to see where's the 'evidence' of 'many people' and Slavs who think that White+Asian looks like a Slav...

In addition, it would be nice that everyone who makes statements like "Slavs are part Mongoloid" to substantiate their claims with at least some real evidence.

Nordhammer

Personally I don't see a strong resemblance, other than skin tone, hair color and maybe eye color. Keanu's hair, nose and eyes definitely show Mongoloid influence. His hair has a semi-Mongoloid texture/form, and his nostrils are quite wide and flared. His eyes too are more particularly Mongoloid.

If people can't pick up on significant Mongoloid admixture like this I think we're in trouble.

That you think I'm lying and she's not partially Mongoloid just makes your argument even funnier.

I can assure you that no Slovenian would mistake him for a fellow countryman. Not in his wildest dreams.

Slavic is a linguistic/cultural designation. Many ethnicities claim to be Slavic, and some can't make up their mind (Bosnians ;)). I, personally, don't view them as Slavic, and I know I am not alone.

To be honest, Goca Trzan doesn't strike me as Slovenian either. I wouldn't deny her that status if she turned out to be one, though.

As for the lady, I can say that she appears to be outside the Slovenian range. I will defer to other members to decide about other Slavic ethnicities. There are some features (especially visible in the profile) about her which would disqualify her IMHO. The pictures are inadequate for such an evaluation, though. She might remind me of a TV presenter from Slovenia, who I thought could present some kind of an extreme type of Dinaricism coupled with what I would think of as Neo-Danubian, but I found out she doesn't have a Slovenian name, so she most probably isn't...

I'd say their phenotypes are localized exponents of the white spectrum emerged through separation, but having the same ancestry. Most likely similar with other sub-races.

Thereto, I wouldn't consider it that bad being proto-mongolid. What's with the meds, are they necessarily something better because they came after the UPs? No need for automatisms. Qualitys count, not age or generation.

Actually, I agree with you. You should see my earlier posts about pseudo-Mongoloid UP's, the neolithic, uralic impact etc. I don't see anything wrong with any of the old European ancestral backgrounds.

Here, it's a different case. Many people, and many Slavs do not think that Slavs look like white+asian mixes. Such a wide generalization simply cannot be possible. Slavs are the most numerous European meta-ethnicity, most widespread, cover many sub-racial types, and also millions of non-ethnic citizens who speak Slavic languages.

If anybody at Skadi can derive a Slav out of Keanu Reeves, then we do have a problem. In greater Los Angeles, he just fits in with the Asians, Mexicans, and mixed combination of these with Whites. He acts White. He has no trace of Island pigen-English or even a Hawaiian accent. So he is unnoticed, as far as race is concerned, in Hollywood. I am sure this language thing all changes when he is hangin' with his "Bras", smoking "Lolo" at "da beach".

Yes, that is the point, not just for Slavs, but whites in general - that many significantly Mongoloid people pass as white.
