legez August 29, 2015 at 5:55 am

get your eyes checked, fool

he looks nothing like a typical South Asian or North African, not even dark looking

andrew August 29, 2015 at 6:40 am

he can pass for a native British guy, he doesn’t look MENA/Pakistani at all. Neil is a troll/hater.

So calling someone dark makes them “trolls/haters”? If I said that he is very Swedish looking and very white, would you have called me a hater?

Aren’t you the racist here with an inferiority complex?

Yes, Ronson’s a Jew. But can he pass as someone with white and Indian ancestry? Yes, if his Indian side was lighter skinned.

andrew March 12, 2016 at 3:23 am

well, claiming Mark Ronson looks Indian/Pakistani or Moroccan is just ridiculous, good trolling mode.

phaedra April 14, 2016 at 11:52 pm

^(Andrew) Coming from a foolish idiot who thinks Italians look like Swedes.

@ phaedra

I actually don’t think so. Of course Italians don’t look like Swedes on average. Btw in the past the Italian peninsula was invaded by several Barbaric tribes. Goths and Lombards came from modern Sweden. The Lombards were 300.000 and left a great impact in Italy. There are words in Italian vocubulary of Lombard origin. also many common names and last names (Lombardi, Lombardo etc..)

2008 WHEN he worked with amy woinehouse my parents saw him on magazines and on tv and thought he might be MENA or PAKISTANI

and my mother thought that he might be the son of one of the members of THE CLASH

also of mixed ethnicity. The guy she meant had armenian turkish and jewish descent


andrew June 28, 2016 at 6:01 am

he does not look Pakistani or MENA in the slightest, are you crazy? There are British people who look like him and you know that.×1920/k_n/mark-ronson-conde-nast-traveller-5feb15-rex_b.jpg

Sephardim and Ashkenazim have the same origins though.

neiltennant October 21, 2017 at 3:57 am

but if you put one potato in a water of brown and one in water of sugar

Capricious May 7, 2015 at 9:16 pm
