I heard his parents are both African from Liberia. But he was born in America.

andrew January 29, 2018 at 3:17 pm

I doubt that. Both his parents appear to be African-American.

There are many Africans from the continent who look African American and you would be surprised. I think people have this huge stereotype in there heads about what pure black Africans look like which varies greatly in skin tone amd features. Not to mention Liberia is historically a country that was founded by freed African slaves from America. More people need to study Africa and African American history.

Only some people from Nigeria might pass for AA, most West Africans are coal black. You realized it when you went to France, don’t you remember? You said you met “the blackest people on Earth” or something, different looking from you (quadriracial)

He does not look anywhere close to a average Liberian guy, he has different facial features and he’s very lighter-skinned. His mother looks quite watered down.

@Andrew I just got back to this post . People need to stop stereotyping West Africans. From my studies West Africans subsaharan are actually MORE diverse in looks from East , South and Central Africans. There are many West Africans below the sahara with different hair textures and skin tones. have you heard of the 100 percent black Nigerian actress Monalisa chinda? She is light skin with green eyes

@Andrew google these subsaharan West African black groups below, black tribes and you will see huge variations in skin tone and hair. On a color map only a small portion of the African continent is really jet black, the rest are different shades of brown. Many people have not traveled to Africa and media depicts all black Africans as one color and they are not.
Google these West African subsaharan black groups
1. Woodabees
2. Fulanis
3. Tauregs
4. Igbos
5. Benin and Togo people
6. http://worldculturepeople.blogspot.com/2016/10/guinea-bissau-culture.html

LMFAO. Monalisa Chinda has obviously bleached her skin. That is ridiculous. Igbos are on average slightly lighter-skinned than other black folks but not anywhere close to that. I personally know an Igbo man who has lighter skin than her husband. Tuaregs are North Africans nomadic people and Fulani have West Eurasian admixture, that’s why are sometimes lighter-skinned. I doubt you had ever met a Tuareg contingent like I did when I was in elementary school, due to a cultural exchange project.

He is both really sexy and classy! Perfect boyfriend material

phaedra April 10, 2016 at 1:40 am

He has nice eyes.

Hard worker…

African-American isn’t an ethnicity. If you are going to classify the person by skin use the term race not ethnicity. I’m not understanding how the folks running this site don’t know the difference between race and ethnicity. Strange.

African-American is an ethnicity

here’s the definition:
African Americans, also referred to as Black Americans or Afro-Americans, are an ethnic group of Americans (citizens or residents of the United States) with total or partial ancestry from any of the native populations of Sub-Saharan Africa.

LucarioCooper June 30, 2015 at 6:31 pm

Has a good lucking face. People are rude.

He’s ugly, don’t lie to yourself LOL!

LucarioCooper September 5, 2015 at 5:47 pm

Beauty is subjective. :)

LucarioCooper September 5, 2015 at 5:48 pm

Besides, he’s not that bad looking.

M May 31, 2015 at 12:58 am

Looks like a chipmunk.

Check7t September 4, 2014 at 11:32 am

70% SSA.

fuzzybear44 July 1, 2015 at 8:32 am


70% SSA now how did you come up with that number?

midori29 January 29, 2018 at 5:14 am

@Check7t I heard both of his parents are from Liberia.

midori29 January 9, 2018 at 6:16 am

@Check7t He looks ALOT more than 70% Subsaharan African to me. Alot or most African Americans I would say are in the 80% plus subsaharan on up. I would say the majority of African Americans.
I think he is really good looking. Alot better looking than Will Smith. :) He is sexy.

midori29 January 9, 2018 at 6:24 am

@Check7t , not likely as light skin and green eyed African American Supermodel Tyra Banks tested 79% black subsaharan African in her dna test, Link: https://blogs.ancestry.com/cm/tyra-banks-gets-surprising-dna-results-on-americas-next-top-model/

*There seems to be alot of mixed people on this website that want to mix up people more than they should be.

These links are what 90-92% Black subsaharan dna looks like Links:

Plus you can be 100% African subsaharan and have light skin. All you have to do is search youtube dna tests to see for yourself.
