I have a Cuban influence from my ethnicity, so I feel 100 percent Cuban and 100 percent Black and nobody can take that away from me… For me, playing an African American role is playing myself and playing a Latino role – I’m playing myself.

He seems good looking, but that pic is just mediocre. Looks like he is constipated.

He’s a black man of Cuban ancestry(as he say himself). Neither AA’s or Cubans have a fixed look, so stop making a mountain out of a molehill

are you talkin to me?

A little to you, but mostly to her. When you state he looks AA .like I said, there is no fixed look for a AA or Cubans. I realize you made that comment a couple of yrs ago, you have made some progress with your as you say (trained eye) , not much but some. The molehill part was all for her. He looks Cuban, that’s silly to say Faizon Love here is Cuban:×1000/7491244.jpg
Does he stand out as Cuban looking?
