      his eyes contain obvious blue/green colouration, a hazelnut contains neither or those colours, look up a hazelnut and put it next to his eyes, tell me if you see a resemblance

    He looks just asian to me

      That’s because white genes and recessive. If you notice that when a person of color mixes with a white person, their children take after the non-white parent? Black and white mixes look black, same with Asian and white. Of course there are times when the child takes after their white parent, but most of the time the kids don’t look white at all.

        Son of a b1tch, I meant ARE recessive*. This is why I hate using my phone, it fcuks everything up. I actually can spell and form correct sentences, my fcuking phone likes to make me look stupid!

        He doesn’t look 100% Asian to me. Compare him to a pure Chinese person.

    correction; his eyes are green, if you want to get technical his eyes are a blue/green with brown around the pupil which is why they do look brown in the website picture however if you look closely they have an obvious blue colour around the edges of the eye.
    Here are some pictures where his eyes are obviously light and have strong green colouration;,0

  4. J.J. says:

    correction; they are green, how about looking at more than one picture before making judement, I provided two large pictures where his eyes are obviously light

  5. J.J. says:

    correction; his eyes are green and his hair is virtually black (noirette)
