Classic spaniard, pic a little misleading, but you got the overall idea, people that say he looks middle eastern or north african never really saw a middle eastern or north african person. Taylor Lautner looks just as “dark” than him and everyone believes he is just northwestern european…
Oh thanks, have a nice day! And don’t forget to keep not having public helth system, keep drinking poisoned water, and junkie food, America is really great right?! Hahahha…
*and keep eating junkie food
Please don’t attack America and/or Israel. Or any other country I like. If you have something substantive to say about a country that’s cool but all you are making is fat jokes and misleading statements about America’s water. Nothing you have said since you joined this website is funny or has helped advanced this website. please do us all a favor and troll somewhere else!
This is like the second or third time I’ve seen you attack Andrew with xenophobic statements. The hilarious thing is that you don’t seem to realize that he’s Italian, so what the insults amount to is just you revealing your anti-American xenophobia.
I honestly don’t get what your problem is. You’ve been overly aggressive since your first comment, here. No humility, no thoughtfulness, just plain unnecessarily aggressive behavior. You would do well to see some psychiatrist about your anger management issues.
And, yeah, you already know this was inappropriate, Andrew. Time to stop engaging with this unstable troll.
Thanks for the support
This user is the new Neil Tennant (if you remember him)
Sometimes I wonder if Ethnic or Follers hire this kind of weirdos to make the site less boring.
“classic Spaniard” LMAOOOOOOOOO my man, I hail from the same island as him, he looks NOTHING like the local population (ofc there’s are a couple people like him here and there), which is predominantly from Catalan descent, Catalans are probably the most pan-European Spaniards, most have fair skin, or very fair olive skin at most, light brown hair, etc.
Nadal looks NOTHING like your average Spaniard, at least not from anywhere else than the south, let alone like your average Catalan.
These comments from people who have never set foot on a country acting all keen on it are absolutely hilarious though, keep it up.
these are all Catalans from Mallorca (Nadal’s island) literally all the Spanish actors/actresses I could think of, before you stupidly call for cherrypicking
by “Spanish” I meant from this island
pic old as hell
ethnic, are you there?
We’ve got a ton of pictures from 2008-2011. There’s nothing necessarily wrong with that. This one looks perfectly fine, unlike the unusual KJ Apa one.
Both Nadal’s and KJ’s pics are fine.
KJ’s photo is fine. Rafa’s one is fine too, just old. People gets old. Big deal.
I’d prefer to use much more recent pictures, when possible.
It’s obvious a young pic of Brigitte Bardot would be better than a new one…
Looks Australian Aboriginal
The Nadal side are Spanish I’ve seen his father, uncles, cousins, and Nadal grandparents and none of them he resembles. He inherited that unique facial features, mousy button nose look from his mother side. Not much is known from mom side but her surname spelling Perera is Portuguese in origin opening a lot of doors for Rafa’s other half being Other than Spanish…
“Perera is a common surname in Sri Lanka, Portugal, Brazil, and most of the Lusosphere.”
unfortunately Rafa’s mother’s surname is “Parera”, not “Perera”.
