My mother’s white and my father is black/native American. So, it makes me really light skinned. Most people think that I’m Italian or a very tall Spanish kid. Just by looking at me, you can’t really tell by my skin or my hair. But, girls always say that my features look like I’m not white.

Slug’s paternal grandparents were William Arthur Daley and Vivian A. Marie Griggs.
