He does not look half white at all. I would never have guessed it.

Many African-Americans look like biracials from Europe (no matter what kind of European is).

You see the difference between Ashley, a mulatto, and his father, a black man:

England’s national team will soon be full of mixed-race guys. I always knew Cole was mixed but I wasn’t aware it was a direct mix i.e one black parent, one white parent.

It’s already full of non white players. The squad for Euro 2016 is possibly the whitest of the last 10-15 years though.

man you’re really into that soccer

fuzzybear44 June 10, 2016 at 10:08 am

not that I’m saying anything is wrong with that, just saying

except North America, Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands and Ireland football/soccer is the most popular sport. FIFA has more members than UN (211 v 193). Euro 2016 has started tonight, I am sure Espn will cover the tournament so you can watch some games. On the contrary North American professional sports (expect NBA) are not popular abroad.

I wasn’t really making a point of how “non-white” it is. The best players get picked to play, and they’re English to me regardless. I was just making a point that the more we all mix the more mixed players we’ll produce. So far we have: Kyle walker, Dele Ali, Chris Smalling, Walcott, Bertrand, Gibbs, Townsend and Chamberlin. In twenty years time we could have an entire 23 man squad full of mixed race players.
