He is virtually a Sephardi Jew.

Because most of them are Hispanic.

I thought he had Native ancestry. And not because of his hair, because a lot of tan or bisque people who has long dark hair automatically thinks “Native”. I just thought so because of his features.

And I mean “deep” due to his complexion.
