    He looks more mixed than biracial Lewis Hamilton lol
    50-55% European i bet, from his mixed African American ancestors.

  2. Kerrywhite says:


    55-60% Black/Negro, 45%- 40% Caucasian/White.

    His mother looks like she has a bit more than half Caucasian/White ancestry, and his father looks about 25% White/Caucasian.

    Native American may also be there as well, but minimum.
