    It seems like everyone on this site has some strange obsession with everyone being mixed. It is completely possible that no one in one’s family tree mixed with a different race, myself as an American example (I have researched my entire tree). He seems to look pretty African to me and I’m sure if he went there people would undoubtedly mistake him as an African.
