    I have only known one Samoan and she said it is a genetic heritage-not a mean stereotype. If I meet a thin one I will let you know.

    I do think of them being not fat but big boned. I've only met a couple Samoans and one of the women who I met who was Samoan told me that they are naturally big boned. I don't go around saying it but it's just what I was told.

    Actually, muscular. All the Samoans at my high school were linebackers for the football team, or played other contact sports.
