    Can we take out the mention of Cuban until we’re able to confirm it?

    There’s no evidence of his Cuban ancestry. Illinois has never had a large Cuban community unlike Florida, California, New York, or New Jersey. Perhaps in more recent years. He even calls himself Afro-Cuban on his Instagram account. He shouldn’t be lying about his ethnicity if he is.

    His parents are Necole Alexander and Rome Flynn. His mother is African-American. She even owns a soul food restaurant. His father is at least partialy of African descent, but the only thing I found about him was his ex-wife’s sister’s obituary, so pretty much nothing.

    Which ancestry comes from which parent? What are the sources for the current information?
