    There’s definitely some Black in him. I’ve seen many quadroons that look like him.

    He is what they call “black Irish”… basically dark haired and olive skinned people (Iberian looking). There are many People like him in Ireland, especially in areas such as; Cork and Galway (Western Ireland). He doesn’t look in any way “Black (African)”. Though, if he did have African ancestry (which he blatantly doesn’t), I am sure he wouldn’t lie about it.

    why would he claim anything other then Irish.
    even he is black blooded. or had a 4th generation black ancestry.
    it’s celab ethnicity not race.. black is not a ethnicity.
    just because you dont have any cultural ethnical significant history so you have to imposed your self- diluted self-centric race-centrist history prospective to other and normalized your self hating insecurity to others who have nothing to you or you to be claimed to.
    (I, e he is hiding of his black ancestry)
    just because you are One it doesn’t means others are like that..
