He got a tan for some reason. But he looks like what he is.

fuzzybear44 January 12, 2016 at 2:37 am

Didn’t even think of him as that kid from harry potter

Gurrl November 17, 2015 at 3:18 pm

Caucasian facial features.

cwm85 November 9, 2015 at 8:25 pm

He looks like he could be a family member of mind. Though we look more European than him with lighter complexion. Black, white, native mix here

In Wikipedia his half brazilian and half english, his mother is a Brazilian named Balbina Gutierrez https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Enoch

He’d look Indian if he straightened his hair.

He doesn’t look half white, maybe he has some white in him, but he’s definitely not 50%. He looks mostly black, his dad probably has some black in him.

fuzzybear44 June 15, 2015 at 6:31 pm

@M

What you said is definitely possible, but have you seen many mulattoes? There’s nothing fixed about what they should look like. I have two cousins right now, same parents. Yet one took after her mother, while the other looks white like the father(you could get more different than these two girls)

Agree! Thank u!

@ M

his facial features are quite European

perez-richart August 1, 2015 at 7:06 pm

his dad is fully white

BigMama September 27, 2015 at 11:43 am

Exactly

BigMama September 27, 2015 at 11:38 am

He look mulato, people have a bad conception about how mixed people from black and white look. He looks very mixed. Obviously he have black things, black phenotype are strong in many mixed people, it doesn’t mean that he’s not half white…. It’s like Lenny Kravitz many people consider Lenny as a black men and his father is white or Bob Marley had an White father and he’s considered black for many people too…. Sadly many mixed people suffer a lot with the one drop rule thing… Is not fair..

he doesn’t look full black at all. Compare him to Djmon Honsou. His facial features show caucasian influence and while he can grow an afro, the roots of his hair are loose, also indicating admixture

alexgxo September 5, 2016 at 8:44 pm

@Multiethnicchick Exactly. They probably think that because his skin is darker and he has an “Afro”. But one just needs to closer and you’ll see there’s European influence all over his features.

alexgxo September 5, 2016 at 8:42 pm

M, you’re obviously not good at paying attention. Look at his hair texture, his nose, even his lips. They look a lot of Caucasoid influence. What throws people off is the skin tone and hair.

This guy is probably 50 percent or more likely 40-45 percent SSA given how the mother is new world African. Genotype DOESN’T equal phenotype.

Oliver Hill April 22, 2015 at 8:23 am

Enoch is an African surname. His dad can’t be fully English

504creolequeen213 August 6, 2015 at 10:06 pm

oliver do a little more research but his dad has a wiki look him up william russell Enoch

Multiethnicchick April 13, 2015 at 11:00 am

He looks mixed. Thin lips, narrow nose and looking closely at his hair texture, it’s loose at the roots just like Lenny Kravitz hair.

Sergio Linz Vianni April 5, 2015 at 2:45 pm

In this interview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzEoAWuZup8 (in Portuguese), he said that his mother’s parents were from Barbados and she grew up speaking English (inside home) and Portuguese (socially).

LucarioCooper March 14, 2015 at 1:32 am

His brown complexion is incredible. And his hair is amazing enough to grow an Afro. It’s just like my hair texture. A combination of melanin and beauty. But there are people who look like him who isn’t mixed, either. Like Big Sean or Diamond White. So I would mistaken him as an attractive dark-skinned person. :)

LucarioCooper March 14, 2015 at 1:55 am

Wait, no. An attractive ‘black’ person.

Multiethnicchick April 13, 2015 at 11:05 am

I would refer to black Americans in comparison because big sean and diamon white don’t look fully black. they’re probably at least 1/8 mixed but then most people don’t count that. If you compare this guy to a full non mixed black African then yes he would stand out a bit. In the pictures you see of dark skinned african kids with tightly coiled hair, and broad noses, eh would stand out.

Multiethnicchick April 13, 2015 at 11:06 am

he has a yellow undertone to his brown. He’s lighter than chocolate

midori29 February 28, 2015 at 9:20 am

He seems to come from a good background. He is super hot.!!!!!! At least his mom is a Brazilian doctor and not a carnival dancer. Like most black Brazilian women.

hotvic January 11, 2016 at 3:28 pm

Shit pleeeeeeeeease !!!!!

I do not believe you can be so childish as to be taken in by these stereotypes that sell to you.
You should be those people who buy coconut water for 10$

LOL, that’s cold

midori29 February 28, 2015 at 9:18 am

I thought he was just black. Wow , never would have thought. Many Brazilian mulatto s come very black looking.

LucarioCooper March 14, 2015 at 1:34 am

‘Black looking’ is offensive. Blacks have many different features. There can be a person with his complexion and eye color and still wouldn’t be mixed.

midori29 March 24, 2015 at 6:27 am

@Lucario I don’t think black looking is offensive, it just means that the person looks like a black person. He looks East African. I agree with you.

LucarioCooper March 31, 2015 at 9:26 pm

It’s just the way you’ve used that term. I think it’s kind of improper to say someone is ‘black looking’ if our features are diverse. But I get your point. :)

Multiethnicchick April 13, 2015 at 10:59 am

East Africans are partially Caucasian. A study suggests they have at least 40% white genotype

fuzzybear44 January 12, 2016 at 2:11 am

They do not have the white genotype. Also going by this latest information, it’s 20% Eurasian ancestry not white. A number of African groups have Eurasian ancestry. As people migrated out from Africa thousands years ago, some settled in what is now called the Middle East(DNA change). As population grow, or shortage of food or whatever, groups break off(taking said DNA with them). Some went towards what is now called Europe, where they still retain their dark color, until the pale skin mutation took hold. While others went back and forth across the Red Sea. You Have West Africans with Eurasian DNA as well as small amount of Neanderthal ancestry (0.3-0.7%)( Nigerians , bushmen and Yoruba ), mostly from back migration

Multiethnicchick July 26, 2016 at 8:12 pm

Someones phenotypical category is based of their ancestry so yes. it does follow bloodline for the most part. Genetic mutations lead to rare exceptions

Multiethnicchick July 26, 2016 at 8:44 pm

@fuzzybear44

https://mathildasanthropologyblog.wordpress.com/2008/03/04/caucasian-africans/

wrong, it’s 40% Caucasian and Eurasians can be Caucasian. Doesn’t seem like you’re very educated on this subject

fuzzybear44 July 27, 2016 at 12:04 am

You’re the one whose uneducated on the subject. You lost IQ points just for using Mathilda as a source. Caucasian or caucasoid is just a bone structure , all so-called racial groups have members with that phenotype . Anybody living in Eurasian can be Caucasoid , I never said they couldn’t . However people in the Middle East , are Labeled Caucasian even where they’re clearly not , it’s more political than anything

Multiethnicchick April 13, 2015 at 10:58 am

skin color has nothing to do with how mixed someone is and people have brown eyes across every single group of humans so what are you talking about with that. Eye color is even more irrelevant than skin color

LucarioCooper September 10, 2015 at 3:24 pm

I don’t think you understand. I never said that. I said someone can have his complexion and eye color and can still not be mixed race. I never said they couldn’t.

I know eye color and complexion doesn’t count. But race does follow by physical features. Not bloodline.

Multiethnicchick July 26, 2016 at 8:12 pm

fuzzybear44 January 12, 2016 at 2:31 am

skin color has nothing to do with how mixed someone is, which is true . Yet this only seems to be attach to a black people. Yet with white people or a person that looks completely white, Those people are called white. The mere suggestion that a white is not pure is seen as a insult, why is there a double standard?
