Default Is Akeem Asian?

Before the snowflakes start i'm not being racist.

I just thought Akeem was Asian due to his name then I saw his parents who are both white plus he's from the Rhondda which is literally down the road from me and typically not full of brown people.

The Welsh are typically dark (as am I) and not pale like Casper the friendly ghost due to our weather as people may think. A lot of us descend from Italians

He looks Pakistani or Indian...Not that it matters he is actually very fit im just curious.

Looks Middle Eastern to me. That said, I think he's the best looking male in there and I fancy him too.

Its so true I didn't see a black person till I was 16 and in college and he was the only black person there which made him popular as **** lol.

It seems so ridiculous now but its a fact.

are we still calling people snowflakes can people let that die already... anyway, back to the topic... If those people Emma interviewed are meant to be his biological parents then I think his mum has some bloody explaining to do because it just doesn't make any damn sense.

I was confused at first when they showed his parents, but inspecting his father further, those are his parents yes.

His mother to me is definitely Caucasian, but his dad due to his hair turning grey, it's slightly difficult, but you can tell he's middle eastern.

God you people are so ignorant.

I'm gay and black American and look identical to Childish Gambino BTW, so if I can figure this out. My god. Smh.

He's definitely middle eastern type.
And Akeem is a name of Arabic origin, being a variation of Hakeem.

To be fair, I had a friend at school who people thought / assumed was half Middle Eastern, but his dad was actually Italian. So I guess some Italian descent is actually possible? The main reason I'd think otherwise is that he doesn't really look anything like either of his parents.
