Here’s Ross Lynch ethnic background
How can he be that French?
He’s cute for a blonde guy.
blonde is not cute according to you? wow racist
how is that racist?
Is his hair bleached? He has brown eyes, which is unusual among people with natural blonde hair.
no, his natural hair color is the same like his eyebrows .
He looks Danish.
Something about him screams “mixed”. He does not look 100% white.
I don’t know why you’re upset.You’re quick to suggest european bloodlines,anytime a black person skin color is anything other charcoal.However the second a european is mention as anything other than pure,you get your panties in a bunch.I’m looking at this pic here:
and I can see it’s possible,not that I’m saying he is
He looks just like Judd Apatow.
it’s ridiculous, I’m not upset. He has common Euro look.
(He has common Euro look.)
Yeah a common Euro look.Just like all these others who happen to be part black
Yes all white in appearance,but part black at the same time.So what ( ihatemostpeople) stated was not ridiculous.
@Fuzzybear44 you are soo CORRECT, Andrew has major issues because he is always mixing black people up and acting like white people cannot be mixed. Whites ar enot 100% pure. When I saw this guy on tv he seemed mixed with something on-white to me to. I bet if he took a dna test there would be some other race dna. His features look influenced by something non-white he does not look like a Nordic blonde for sure.
@Fuzzybear, @Andrew Check out this pic of Paula Patton and Robin Thicke’s son who is blonde and 25% African or 1/4th he kind of looks like him
Lol what? This boy looks 100% european.
I thought so too, something looks Mexican or Africa like 15%
