    It is a matter of GENETICS.  If you look at her noise it is not the shape of a typical Englishman.

    She's not bi racial 

    She's mixed

    She's super unattractive though

    And her nose is huge

    She isn't biracial, she is mixed. Middle Easterners are Caucasian/Caucasoid (which does not mean "White"), just like Europeans. Race has nothing to do with skin color or geography, it's more so about morphological features, which is based on a myriad of environmental things.

    And just for the record, the terms I used are not indicative of my thoughts about people based on their race. While race is a social construct (like many other things, such as gender), there is nothing inherently wrong with the concept. A classification is a classification. The problem is what people use them for.

    Genes are racist. That must be fixed.

    There's no such thing as race.

    Passing on genetics is a lottery. If someone has genetics for one skincolour from one parent and for another from the other parent, (s)he can only pass on one of the two to the same child

    There's only one race: Human.

    If you go by "white, yellow, black and red" then all of her ancestry is "white" because Iranian and Middle Eastern are just as "white" as English.

    Btw, nowadays there is a lot of English who are "black, brown, yellow,...".

    Iranians are not even that dark. Her facial features are quite foreign but her skin tone is very white/english.

    Iran is a big place. It isn't surprising that Poles don't look like Greeks is it? It's about the same distance from north to south in Iran.
