    He’s obviously mixed-race person. Stating that he’s only African is a joke pointed at science and genetics. This site has so many inaccuracies.

    If he were to take a DNA test, I’m sure he would have other ancestry. He is only considered black in the US because of the one-drop rule (which is very stupid to use today). If he were anywhere else in the world I’m sure many other would assume he’s other different ethnicities.
