He looks like Avan Jogia?

Looks like he could be related to Ariana Grande.

He looks like a young, better-looking version of African-American actor Ty Burrell.

the user Lelo4 I think he’s that dude who is the admin (!) of a so-called “anthopology forum” that has been closed atm. This person has a fetish to whitewash MENA people and depict Southern Italians as Lebanese people. Also he glorifies Iberians as the “Nordic” of Southern Europe. If that’s not him he’s someone who was brainwashed by the countless posts of his personal agenda.

He looks North African.

andrew August 8, 2016 at 3:13 pm

Wow… this is really a ridiculous attempt of whitewashing.

lelo4 August 8, 2016 at 3:16 pm

He could easily pass in Marocco though.

andrew August 8, 2016 at 3:20 pm

easily? he would be VERY atypical.
