    Another potentially good looking ruined by Asian eyes.

      because he isn’t Chinese.
      one of his parents must have to been Asian. to claim it part something-( in this case Asian) . to if not you are not part anything .. his claim for his Asian backgroun because of his eyes shape
      that is just an silly assumption.

        He can be considered mongoloid since they are Africans who have slanted eyes like Asians San”Bushmen”, Nigerians, Ilongots, Aborigines Philippines, and Cambodians
