    Found his mother’s ancestry.

    He looks light-skinned Indian/Pakistani

  3. I thought he had Native ancestry. And not because of his hair, because a lot of tan or bisque people who has long dark hair automatically thinks “Native”. I just thought so because of his features.

    And I mean “deep” due to his complexion.
