Interesting. I’ve never seen a person who looks as stereotypically Arab as this guy. He looks extremely Iraqi to me (I’m part Iraqi myself so I see the facial features easily). Perhaps his father has Somali or Eritrean descent?
Maybe not stereotypically Arab, but when I think of an Iraqi man, I think of a guy who looks kinda like Kuzma.
