If I were in arizona i would think mexican, if I were in vancouver I would think indian or arab. He’s generally brown either way.

I thought he was middle eastern or indian, though mexican would have been my next guess.

Dark Arabs don’t look like this. He’s too “exotic” for them even.

He looks Indian/Pakistani though. He’s kinda cute btw (maybe not in that pic though).

Dark arabs can look like that, they tend to have bigger noses and eyes but I’ve seen some with smaller eyes as well.

He’s probably more so a Harnizo than mestizo, most Mexicans are actually Harnizo, but they just get listed as mestizo.

He looks like a Mexican mestizo to me.
