Frankly know nothing about him, but I recently happened upon some interview he was doing and it was the first time I had ever heard him speak. I'm sorry to be rude, but I have to ask: Has he had some sort of a brain injury or is he just not very bright?
Brad Pitt is NOT mixed race.
He's german, english, irish, and scotish.
We've got his family tree going back at least 5 generations.
Why are people bringing up Brad Pitt in this thread?
why so many people feel better about themselves by inferring someone famous has some black heritage is beyond me. I guess some of us are bereft of any self worth.
People are people, there's only one race, the human race or we wouldn't be able to have one another babies. Skin color and body features are no different from fur color and muzzle shapes. All people are people and all dogs are dogs, it's just that simple.
Also, no one is Chinese, Italian, German etc unless born in those countries. All people born in the US are United Statsians. Nationalities are determined by the country in which you are born.

Because he, like Kellan, is a white boy with full lips.
"Because he, like Kellan, is a white boy with full lips."
That's it? Hardly basis to mention him multiple times.
Oh and that pic had like 25,000 notes on Tumblr when I snatched it lol.
Who cares about his dick, fake or not. His face is gorgeous.
R9, as a biracial guy I have no issue with the topic, but your alleged "data" are ridiculous. One-third of European-ancestry Americans considering themselves white do not have African ancestry, at least not in the way you are suggesting. Mitochondrial Eve doesn't count.
I call BS on the "The full lips" argument, I'm from Northern Europe and there are plenty of Blonde guys with full lips here.

Nationality is determined by citizenship. Ethnicity is determined by ancestry. Neither is determined by where you were born.
For all WE know, he might be high yellow!
A government study done in the 50s estimated that at least 10% of white Americans had varying degrees of African ancestry. Some of America's oldest families have black blood. Before we became slaves, we were indentured servants and were free to marry whom we pleased, so before slavery became legit, there were lots of mixed marriages. Then the slave trade increased and became law. Those of mixed race who were light enough to pass as white or even Indian did so, and became absorbed into the white mainstream. Who can blame them, when at the time, being black meant being less than human? Why do people get so upset about it? I think because even today, the stigma in the US of having black blood is so great that it makes people deny it out of fear, ignorance and hatred. You can be mixed with anything else and be considered white (hello Keanu Reeves), but even the most remote black ancestry stigmatizes you. Is it any wonder why those who could (and still can) pass do so? The "one drop rule" is so dated and offensive - it's time to get past it. I think Latin America and other parts of the world have it right - your race should be based on your appearance, not your ancestry. Only white Americans (and some black ones) obsess over this issue.
I have no idea what Lutz's ancestry is, but it cracks me up when people get angry about it when they don't know either.
