        Ok? My mom’s side has those same dark features and according to extensive family tree and family members doing ancestry dna, we’re Irish and Welsh. And hispanic? Even if he was of Spanish ancestry, he’d still be white. If you meant he’s a mestizo, no he doesn’t look mixed. At all. Either way you’re an idiot
