Even when you come across a rare dirty-blonde girl, she still doesn't have the same bone structure as a pure European, which is most indicative by the shape of the face. Almost all of the "white girls" have a least a little bit of indigenous blood. You'll almost never see a naturally bright blonde girl, which is rare but not unheard of in southern Europe (I can name a few Sicilian girls with naturally bright blonde hair). Only about 1 out of a 1,000 Latins have light colored eyes.
It depends on the country, but even in a country like Peru (which has a lot of indigenous blood) there ARE some very white blonde/nordic looking locals. I have seen them myself walking around the Larcomar mall in Miraflores, Lima. I think they often have German or some other European ancestry. Of course they are not very common in most of the country and you have to go to certain areas to see them (and they almost always belong to the upper classes), but they definitely exist.
That is true. All Latin American countries have nordic looking local people, though in all Latin American countries they are minority.

a clear example of this is the wealthier parts of mexico city (la condesa for example) you go around there and the average mexican women there looks more like a european tourist than an actual stereotypical mexican woman)
according to government statistics, 9% of mexico's population is white/caucasian........ and the mexican-whites I've met are nothing like their counterparts north of the border...... white mexican women are often thin, chic, sophisticated, cosmopolitan, very classy and feminine something that in America you wouldnt find, then u cross the border and u realize your surrounded by hordes of overweight loud obnoxious racist dumb ignorant acultural white american women.
it is so funny, but I think the minority of whites in mexico are actually much more european, better off economically and culturally than the vast majority of whites in america.
it sort of shows us how decadent america overall is.
Very interesting post!!!!
