He’s obviously very mixed.

Native American, Spanish and distant subsaharan African.

Yes, he can generically pass as North African.

I’ve never seen a North African that look like him, and I am surrounded by North Africans. He is lighter skinned with different skull shape and hair texture than average North African.

PUERTO RICAN is not a race. In this case it is his culture. He is obviously of mixed races. More than likley, he is Taino Indian, Spanish or Italian and has some Black. My husband is Puertorican too, but he looks white/with very little black. Not everyone in Puertorico has the same mix or color, but most everyone there is definitely of mixed race.

He is african-puetorican spanish-mulato and indigenous.

Viva Espana and Latinos people!

This is his father. He does not look that “Afro” to me.

@Angel Syrene most all puerto ricans have an African and Indian admixture. I think you can see it with his bulging eyeballs.

Marc Anthony appears to be mostly of Spaniard Mediterranean descent with some Native American as well.

YouWishUCouldKNow March 11, 2010 at 5:07 pm

Lol…you beat me to it. I was going to say: Skeletor = Marc Anthony. And if they aren’t one-in-the-same, then they are definitely brothers, because the resemblance is striking.
