No offense, but Irish and Welsh people don’t look like that. I wonder if he has some Eurasian or Mediterranean blood in him.
His father was Irish and his mother’s surname is Irish too, he has no Welsh ancestry on paper.
Both Irish and Welsh can show Mediterranean influence in their phenotypes, but Coleman’s strong Cro-Magnoid features combined with dark complexion give him a mestizo vibe actually.
For example, Irish scholar Augustus Henry Keane used the Irishman below to describe the so-called Mediterranean race: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f4/MPP-Medir.jpg
Care to explain how Levantines and northern Africans aren’t Mediterranean? :D
