he looks soooooooo Spanish or Sephardic

I have met so many Spanish guys or Sephardic people with that look

Was about to say that.

He looks really Spanish. I can see him speaking Spanish and not looking out of place.

I think Neil means it like “Black Irish” which are the people who descend from a Spanish invasion/immigration of Ireland. Personally, I think he looks very Jewish, he looks like my friend’s grandfather who is Jewish. The Romans brought Jews with them when they were in England. Who’s to say what the true backgrounds of all these supposedly purebred Brits really are.

How the fuck is he a “black Brit”? Lol

He’s so pale. His hair and eyes are dark yes. But that’s it.
