Neymar is a Brazilian professional football player and actor. In August 2017, he moved from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in a transaction worth €222 million, making him the world’s most expensive football player ever.
He is the son of Nadine da Silva and Neymar Santos. His parents are of mixed European and African heritage.
Neymar has been the target of alleged racial abuse occasionally throughout his career, and his ethnic identity has provoked much discussion. Considered one of the most marketable sportsmen in the world, Neymar has graced the covers of some of the biggest magazines, including Time and GQ.
Neymar has a son with his former partner Carolina Dantas.
Possibly some Caribe roots.
Just like Ronaldo, he has also stated in 2010 that he is not black. Actually, it took years and years of racial slurs being thrown at him, for him to possibly start considering his African roots. That’s really sad.
I agree with Neymar. He is not black. He is mixed-race.
He is mixed-race, but I think there is a difference between “I’m not black” and “I’m part black”. And when asked if he had ever been a victim of racism, he said something in the lines of “No, never, because I’m not even black”.
He’s definitely part black. But if he said that in 2010, he was just 18. A kid.
In August 2017, Neymar moved from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in a transaction worth €222 million, making him the world’s most expensive football player ever.
Just recently saw pictures of his five year old kid, the boy has blonde hair and is pale as anything. Neymar truly has a mixture of genetics flowing through him.
