Can you guess his ethnicity/race?


Recommended Posts

Well a race part is easy: human

 

As far as ethnicity, that is a great deal more challenging. You can’t simply look at someone and determine their ethnicity.

 

However in the spirit of fun I’ll venture a guess. I would say this person is African-American from the south or mid west definitely not from a major urban center like New York City or Los Angeles.

very interesting guess! what features made u guess dravadian


I've studied the Dravidian culture and people over the years so certain physical features stand out.

Plus, as I implied earlier....he has a "feminine" look about him which is a relatively common feature among many men on the Indian subcontinent.

@Delano If that brother is Jamaican, which I doubt, he is definitely not living there.

How could you tell what region of the nation they are from simply be looking at them?

 

@Pioneer1  Because no one from a big city will be caught dead in those busted Shirley Temple curls.

He looks likes family friend who is Jamaican and Chinese.

kinda makes sense u guessed asian. a lot of natives have an "asian" look to them 

which again makes sense considering their deep ancestral roots in asia

 

what features made u guess asian though?

Afro

he's of african american, irish and native american descent.

So he's made up of 3 different races.
That's a typical AfroAmerican, lol


In Latino culture they have a name for that mixture but I forgot exactly what it's called.

"Triego" or something like that.

again more evidence for why race is so problematic.

And again, you can’t look at someone and determine their ethnicity.


Race isn't problematic for me.
There are clearly defined categories for all races and racial mixtures, most people are just ignorant of them.
 

No one is arguing about how easy it is to determine one's ethnicity.  Ethnicity is a very FLUID category that is based more on culture and personal identity than genetics and phenotype.

yeah I know it's not uncommon for americans to have some "other" lineage

 

but usually with the native part specifically ive seen a lot of people who have more stories than actual lineage 

 

european is def pretty common among slave descendants in America...and usually much closer/traceable

@afro718, I’m going off my Ancestry DNA results and my family tree, both of which reveal similar ancestry to the person whose photo you posted, a background which is not at all unusual. 
 

Do you know the person whose photo you posted?  Is it you? 🤨

sorry wasnt implying that ur heritage wasn't factual just in general. if ur african american u know many have the "cherokee" story thing in the community

when there are like over 400 different tribes. lol i think u know what im talkin about. not to u specifically

 

but i do think in general its MUCH more likely for AA's to have that heritage than it is for white americans.

i've seen a lot of the DNA results u refer to and a LOT more white ppl disappointed than Blacks lol

Afro

 

I know it's almost clique for AfroAmericans to run around talking about they have "Indian" in them.  But actually in most cases this is quite true.  It's just that most AfroAmericans don't have the resources to properly prove their lineage.

It's actually the Caucasians who are the most guilty of "faking the funk" by claiming to be Native American when they really aren't or only have trace amounts.  But they are often able to manipulate laws to get their claims legitamized.

 


Central Asian and South Asian Indian

 

Well I know I see a little Dravidian in him..in his facial features and especially his eyebrows.

Ethnicity is much more fluid than race because ethnic groups can literally be made up over night.

 

For example...
Italian used to be only a nationality.  But now in the U.S. when someone says they are "Italian" they usually mean "Italian American" and are using it as an ethnicity instead of a nationality.

 

Technically speaking the word "Black"...although most people think of it as a race or color is actually an ETHNIC term for AfroAmericans.

Many Africans don't see themselves as "Black" and when they refer to "Blacks" they are talking about AfroAmericans...lol.
