That’s one hell of a surname. I always thought he was Portuguese.

aaa June 26, 2014 at 3:58 pm

I thought he was part mexican. His surname sounds spanish

Bow Down Bitches July 26, 2015 at 8:47 pm

i thought he had some latino in him too

super360 August 16, 2015 at 11:10 pm

Bow Down Bitches nice name lol

Jason derulo is latino

Haitian are considered latino

Since they come from latin america

Speak a latin based language .

Colonized by a latin country which is spain and france

super360 August 16, 2015 at 11:10 pm

And latino is not a race

Haitians are Latinos.

Just because someone of African descent or Haitian descent has a French last name, does not make that person French.. Slaves were given last names and stripped of their identity, including Haitians. My last name for instance, Lanier, is French and I’m clearly not French.

correction: his birthplace is Miami, Florida

correction: unless his parents were native haitian people living in the USA for several generation then his ethnicity is listed wrong, haitian is not an ethnicity unless it were indigenous and judging by his appearance he looks like he’d have obvious african ancestry and likely some european. his birth name is not jason derulo it’s Jason Joel Desrouleaux and desrouleaux is a french surname. and not that it’s that important but i wouldn’t say he’s best known for his single watcha say that was just his debut. this entry is poorly listed

So, he’s Haitian with French & African ancestry?

Obviously the person who posted this doesn’t even know a thing about Jason. I’m not even a fan of his but I checked his IMDb profile a while ago (and obviously checked again now) and he is not from “Miramar, Florida” he is from MIAMI, FLORIDA and his last name is NOT derulo, it is PRONOUNCED derulo but his real last name is Desrouleaux. Meaning he’s got French ancestry (too, I don’t know about the Haitian-American thing) I hope someone fixed this cause it’s wrong.

He is haitian his last name is desrouleaux ur right that is a french name but dont forget haiti was a french colony everyone in haiti have french last names I would know cuz im haitian and part cubian and I have a french last name from my dad but my mom has a spanish one

danaesucks May 30, 2011 at 9:56 pm

thank you for clearing it up for me! (: still, a lot of the information the person left there is wrong. The birthplace and last name.

Well haiti is poor because they wanted to be free,then they were backstabbed by the U.s.a.Also the haitians people are no different than anyone else in the world.you have what people see as pretty and you have those who are not.i just looked at everyone of those countries you listed.i founded just as many ugly people as i founded pretty,and it wasn’t hard to do.i don’t know what you look like,but i can tell your an ugly person on the insides
