    his brother looks like him, even more exotic. The adoption is not an option.

      Does football legend Gerd Muller look German to you?

        Dark-haired Germans do exist, and you are aware of it, even though they’re evidently outnumbered by the light haired ones. You can’t know all German people, which are the largest ethnic group of Western Europe. Google “Hansi Muller” and gimme your opinion.

      Hummels is German, although all nationalities are a blend of races. I could be wrong, but you sound like you are from the USA who is not doing that nation any good with your rather one dimensional way at looking at nationalities
      of the world.

      I could go on about I1 haplotype groups, but I will keep it simple. Parts of scandinavia have about 45% of this type, so more blondes and Germanic stereotypes are seen there. Germany has about 15% on average of this type as does The Netherlands, England and southern Scotland, etc. Even parts of Eastern Ireland has around 10%, thanks to Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Normans, etc.

    Every time i see him I think ‘Turkish’. His surname doesn’t sounds typically German, either.

    He’s hot. I didn’t expect a German to look like that.
