    Ojibway –> Ojibwe
    That’s the way it’s spelled on other pages.

    Since Ojibwe and Chippewa are the same thing, maybe you could create a single tag for them.
    Oh, and Saulteaux are a part of the Ojibwe group, so Adam is basically just Saulteaux.

    For me, he looks like a typical Hispanic mixed with Mestizo.

    He doesn’t have a very pronounced epicanthal fold, thus making him attractive for a “Mongoloid” man. He also has double eyelids and strong brows, unlike many other people of”Mongoloid” descent.

      “For a”?

      Yes, I’m sure you’re quite the beauty queen yourself.

    • Racial Realist says:

      What? He’s Native American you retard, not mongolian. Native Americans as a whole have strong brows, and never have single eyelids and rarely epicanthic folds. Do yourself a favor and learn about ethnic morphology before trying to sound like you know what you’re talking about:
      Native American phenotype:
      Heavy Brow
      Sloping forehead
      Hooded eyes
      High strong cheekbones and large robust jaw
      Convex nose, sometimes hooked

      Capricious, you are a racist piece of sh*t. If by “Mongoloid” you mean Asian/Native, they are already attractive. Not attractive “for a.” And epicanthal folds are attractive because the plurality of humans have them. Therefore they’re the most normal.

    @white then I am part Chinese cause my grandmom was 25 percent Native American.

  5. White18 says:

    @Cossette271, you should do some research too. I’ve always noticed Native Americans look Chinese. It’s been proven that Native American DNA is the same as Chinese DNA. People that have claimed to have Native American in them and have gotten a DNA test done, the DNA cannot be distinguished. Usually they say, “possible Native American and/or Chinese decent.” Just look up something like Native Americans descended from Chinese and you will get results. DNA is a crazy thing.

    • Racial Realist says:

      China has little to do with the Americas in any way. Inuit are fairly closely related to Native Siberians, that’s about the closest connection. DNA testing sites can easily distinguish Native American, Inuit, and all different Asian groups, you must have had some ghetto testing if they couldn’t tell a group that’s been apart for over 20,000 years.
