He is fine but too he’s gay. He hasn’t officially announced it but everyone suspects he’s zesty. He does look a lil suspect

like Obama he looks more black, he is handsome

o'connor January 8, 2014 at 4:41 pm

no, he actually looks exactly like what you’d expect a mulatto to look like (however shemars facial features lean more to the european side of his family which is evident to everyone), so does obama and bob marley. Put them in a line up with actual black african people and they stand out like a sore thumb. People like rashida jones, blake griffin, chris humphries and derek jetter are not the typical mulatto people, since they are all more like 65% white 35% black.

if his mother was born in The Netherlands, that is Holland, and she is Dutch.

sherron teal January 18, 2010 at 3:20 pm

there is no mention of him being Mexican or Indian, he is black and Irish French-Canadian and that is all!

Cole July 16, 2010 at 2:00 pm

Mexican isn’t even a race to begin with, the majority of Mexicans are part European(white) and part Indigenous.

Beyonce August 22, 2009 at 10:34 am

ethnic August 22, 2009 at 2:15 pm

Tyrone March 26, 2012 at 6:57 pm
