Well, if sometimes her eyes are brown and sometimes they're green, then she obviously wears some kind of color contacts, right?

Everything you always wanted to know about Jennifer Lopez:

Height: 5' 6" (1.68 m)
Weight: 56kg (121 lbs)
Measurements: 34-26-38
Shoe Size: 6
Hair Color: Dark Brown
Eye Color: Light Brown
Build: Athletic

So now you know what size shoes to get J. Lo for Christmas.

Anyway, has anyone seen a Hispanic person with natural blue or green eyes?

Well, J.Lo was born in America. So, if you refer to 'hispanic' as someone that has got parents that came from Latin countries, there is Christina Aguilera for example, she's got blue eyes.

Actually Christina Aguilera's mother is Irish and her father is Ecuadorian.
And Jennifer Lopez was born in the Bronx but both of her parents are Puerto Rican...so I don't understand your point

Since people from Latin countries often have mixed heritages they can have different physical traits, but predominantly their eyes are brown. That isn't to say that some of them have a little more Spanish in them and have lighter hair or eyes, but predominantly the eye color in South American countries is brown. That's why the best contact lenses like Waicon and Soloticas are sold in Latin America, people want to stand out by having lighter eyes since brown eyes are the norm

I am 1/4 Mexican and I don't think there is anything remotely racist in stating the fact that the majority of those who are hispanic have brown eyes...and that those who don't tend to have more Caucasian in the mix

And btw, check out Jennifer Lopez in blue contacts

He asked about a 'hispanic' person with clear eyes, and I named one celebrity that has a Latin heritage...

And so the majority of people from Latin America came from Spain and mixed with the indian people that lived there before, so in fact there is no such difference between caucasian people from Latin America or the Europeans themselves. There was sure more mixing of people in Latin America than there was in Europe, so maybe that's the reason why the brown eye is more common (it is the dominant gene).

You named one person with half latin heritage, the other half is irish

I am aware of that hispanic people are a mix of native indians, spanish, and other ethnicities--but those with light eyes usually have more caucasian in the mix (usually spanish), which is relatively rare.
Christina Aguilera is a bad example because she inherited her light eyes from her Irish mother, there are hispanics with light eyes but it is pretty rare

As far as there was more mixing in Latin America than in Europe, well yes, but also the native people of these countries had exclusively brown eyes--which cannot be said of Europeans
You say there is no difference between the Caucasian people in Europe and those in Latin America, that is not true. Someone who has a lighter phenotype in Latin America probably has some Indian heritage somewhere, even if it isn't enough to be expressed physically, I would say a 100% Spanish person is pretty rare in South America if there ancestry goes back a couple hundred years--not to mention the fact that Spaniards tend to have a darker phenotype anyway, when compared to the Irish or the English--especially when you look at the Southern Spaniards (like the Southern Italians)

I don't see why she's a bad example. As we know, the eye color comes from genes by both parents. So, as blue comes from a recessive gene, her latin father also had a recessive gene for the eye color. The heritage doesn't come exclusively from the mother

............damn you are stubborn!

Fine, there is absolutely no genetic difference between Irish and Spanish or Portuguese people. And a girl from Puerto Rico is just as likely to have blonde hair and blue eyes as a girl who is 50% Irish and 50% Ecuadorian.
It is a myth that those in South American countries are more likely to have brown eyes than in Ireland, even though their ethnic heritage is predominantly Amerindian .

Actually both parents do not need blue eyed genes to produce a blue eyed child--although it is certainly possible that her father was carrying the gene it is not necessary
There have been many people who are 1/2 Asian and 1/2 Caucasian with blue eyes when the Caucasian parent had blue eyes
That little BB Bb diagram that we learned in school is outdated, it was created before we really understood genetics---it's not that simple

When you think about it, it makes sense-- research has showed that people with blue eyes have a single common ancestor. Originally, we all had brown eyes. Sooo obviously that original blue eyed ancestor mated with someone without any blue eyed genes and produced blue eyed children. Otherwise blue eyes would not exist.
