This may sound silly but I think there should be a comma between English and Ashkenazi Jewish not a hyphen since Aaron has some non-Jewish English ancestry and the two being linked together could imply to people otherwise.

Thanks Follers, you’re the greatest! Please let me know if the ancestry.com member’s tree is accurate. thanks,
sincerely, Bearboy

he could easily play JESUS

I was thinking Sanders should play Jesus. Even though Aaron and Jesus are/were both Jewish, Sanders used to be a carpenter apparently :)

Aaron has recent Irish ancestry. To start off I know Alec Frankfort was Ashkenazi Jewish. Louisa was the daughter of David Cushion and Ann Frances Robinson. David was the son of Mary Collins and Robert Cushion, who was born 1847 in Cork, Ireland and immigrated to England. Robert Cushion’s father Robert Cushin (1820) is listed as Irish Catholic according to ancestry.com records.

Only caucasian races can have curls hair, his hair is not afro or nappy. Btw, he is white, even if he has some black in him he would score irrelevant percent to change his hair texture which looks european.

He is perfect! Too bad he is already married

White People Can Have Curly Hair. Who Said That It’s Only A Black Trait? A Bunch Of Idiots On This Site.

To fuzzybear44 – “Couldn’t that 3-5% be the reason why you guys have curly hair?”

Sure. Who can say?

I’ve read one of the sources for Ashkenazi Jews’ African ancestry is mixing with African slaves in the Roman Empire, where some Jews were enslaved also.

(I’ve read one of the sources for Ashkenazi Jews’ African ancestry is mixing with African slaves in the Roman Empire, where some Jews were enslaved also.)

That’s one of the sources. However Rome dealt with North African blacks at that time, their dna is a little different. Sub- Saharans came dancing in later

Black hair isn’t even curly but afro and nappy only whites can have curls

M June 4, 2015 at 3:55 pm

Biracials usually have curls, it’s not just white people.

Princess June 8, 2014 at 9:17 pm

His great grandmother was an African woman.

midori29 August 6, 2014 at 10:47 am

He looks like 15% -20% African, he just has that vibe and hair influence

andrew August 6, 2014 at 1:52 pm

Ethnic, you should put more pics of white people when they have curly hair, as u did for Gerard Butler, so non-whites can claim them, lol.

follers August 6, 2014 at 2:50 pm

Aaron has curly hair pretty often, it’s not rare for him.

English and Ashkenazi Jewish people have curly hair sometimes, it’s not atypical.

ashash November 26, 2014 at 5:01 pm

Even Nicole Kidman has natural curly hair.

(English and Ashkenazi Jewish people have curly hair sometimes, it’s not atypical.)

First off, you know I mean no offense to you. Now as far as Jews go, there was a DNA study done by Payri Moorjani and her genetics team at Harvard Medical School, about the different groups including Ashkenazi. However they didn’t test the black groups. Anyhow going by the tests, it states that you guys are on a consisted avg of 3 to 5% sub-Saharan. Also since you have repeatedly stated in the past, of jewish groups for a long time only messing with each other(which only served to mix up the pot) Couldn’t that 3-5% be the reason why you guys have curly hair?

Now as far as England goes. I have stated and proven many times, that black people have been running all up and through there.

chris91 October 21, 2014 at 10:02 pm

Haha wth

WTF August 12, 2014 at 7:27 pm

lmfao you must be on crack because he looks like white as hell. i don’t see any ethnic features on him.

ashash June 3, 2014 at 2:16 am

Thank you for this and Bill Nighy. So you did include his wife in there, sort of. On the IMDB, over half the topics are about his wife.

ethnic November 7, 2013 at 2:38 am

I can see why the discussion is about his wife!

ethnic May 11, 2013 at 11:10 pm
