Well I’m from here(Louisiana boy),that’s my Grandfather(my mother’s father) who’s the foreigner.Don’t know much about him,because he was killed when my mother was about 5 or 6(she was the baby out 12 kids),so she doesn’t remember much.Most everything comes from my aunt,who says he was latino(and one hell of a dancer).The thing is he wasn’t her father so,she didn’t bother to find out where he was from;and unfortunately my grandmother has pass on,so can’t ask her.Also Chinese is the possible Asian part,of course mean kids nickname my mom (black Jap) growing up,so it could be Japanese for all I know

Was considering using the pics on wiki but the sources look a bit untrustworthy
