    This guy looks very mixed.

    African, Amerindian, Spanish, South Asian and also even Australian Aboriginal.

    I see all of these in him.

    • Devotion says:

      he looks like a typical Aboriginal Australian with some anglo-celtic ancestry.

      why do so many puerto ricans look like this …seriously? that actor who played the bad guy in Ghost from example…

        This is how the Natives of the Caribbean looked. I think he may be mixed with some kind of Native American from Puerto Rico. If he would have been mixed with black, his hair texture would have looked different. I think JLo may be part native as well.

        • Gurrl says:

          Amerindians don’t look like that. He is obviously African influenced.
