Hi Andrew. I like Europeans and parents who love their children. I don’t like your comment. I prefer people who are kind. As a blue eyed and blonde person, who certainly has preferences of her own, please know that the “don’t like mix” comment is sad and hurtful, and that the most smart, capable, and beautiful people will come from that “mix”. Take care, I hope you find much joy!

Parents one from northern Europe and one from southern Europe and the baby would have blue eyes n black hair. Personally I don't like mix. I like blue eyes with blonde hair.
