    You really have to have trained eye for this, but you can definitely tell he’s not a white Mexican. He clearly has Native influences, particularly in the mouth, eyes, and forehead. He might look white to the untrained eye.

    Man with his face can be seen on any street in Spain. Therefore it is the typical Spaniard.

  4. Princess says:

    He looks like he could be from Spain, but yet he has something exotic about him. He probably has only about 10-15% Native American. He also looks part Middle Eastern. There are Mexicans of Middle Eastern descent.
