    He’s cute. Looks Spanish to me with a bit of Middle Eastern touch.

      LMFAO no he doesn’t, he looks obviously MESTIZO. I didn’t even know he was part Dominican either, I don’t see any black in him. I just thought he was Mexican.

        He looks triracial to me. Dominicans are black and Spanish mixture(more spanish blood on average). And venezuelans are a mix of all three. Unlike Colombia, Venezuela actually has more black people, than Indios. Indigenous genes are very strong though. Ive seen very Indigenous looking people from Panama get 30% african.

      Ive never met a spaniard that looks like him lol…People really think spaniards look ethnic, but if you go to Spain you will be surprised that most people there look WHITE.
