He is 1/4 African. He says he has a black grandfather. I’m not sure about his other grandparents
Um okay? True. He has a black grandparent though, it’s not like he found out he’s 2% sub Saharan African on an ancestry test.
He’s still mostly European, just like most Latinos in the Caribbean Sea area, you’re obviously gonna get a small percentage of African and indigenous on DNA. So he’s still Hispanic…
You sound dumb. Hispanic, African and Latino are all different things. You can be black and Hispanic and/or Latino. No one said he isn’t mostly European. You have the mental capacity of a 5 year old. Damn.
His father looks 100% European and his mother likely has some non Euro admixture but she is no way half Afro-Colombian.
So? He literally said himself his grandfather is Black African. Go and tell him he’s lying about his heritage. Look at Rose Bertram. She’s half black but she looks Eastern European.
“Everyone in America is half African????”
