    Based on his traits, I’d say he’s defenitely Northern Spanish, again, you can find this phenotype all throughout the Iberian peninsula but on average the more up north you go, the more common, blue eyes for instance, are.

    He could easily pass for a Mexican Cherokee Indian, confusing the most racist and idiotic Yankee, just because he was born in Mexico. If he was born there then would not he be totally white? There is so much European Spanish blond and tall Aryan that it sickens any American stupid from the caves of Texas. There are both Argentino, Latino blond and tall as a German grandson of Austrians (since not everyone born in Austria is Blond). But also note how interesting it is that any white who browns the body on a sunny summer of 40 ° C will no longer be white just because it will look dark, only for a person with no culture and no brain. This is a catch in which many alienated and stereotyped people fall too.
