    Only caucasian races can have curls hair, his hair is not afro or nappy. Btw, he is white, even if he has some black in him he would score irrelevant percent to change his hair texture which looks european.

    His profile regarding his maternal grandparents is all confusing at this moment. Who is Jewish in that part of his family? The Russian-born one as the tags suggest? Please keep it coherent.

    • jackson9 says:

      Aaron’s maternal grandmother’s father Alec Frankfort was Jewish and Aaron’s great-grandmother (Alec’s spouse) Louisa Cushion was English and Irish. The rest of the ancestry is unclear as to if they were Jewish or not.

        I see.

        You should update his profile accordingly then ‘ Alec was born in Russia to a Jewish family.’ or along the lines of something like that.
