    I wish this handsome young man the very best in his endeavors. He’s hot as well as deserving. I’ve traveled to Bahia on two occasions, and he is correct: the people in his city DO NOT yearn a lot of material goods in which to be happy and fulfilled. This is a great attribute!

    “i love black boys”, implying this guy is black. His grandma must be white with blue eyes, its the racial mixture that gives Brazilians a living as models.

  34. Dre says:

    July 24th, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    “His grandma must be white with blue eyes”..LOL….He clearly states in his profile “Afro Descendent”. Additionally, there are many black folks with light eyes, and it doesnt necessary mean a parent or grandparent is white.

  35. Darwin says:

    July 26th, 2010 at 2:23 am

    Its genetically impossible for a pure black person to have light eyes unless he was mixed. and we’re talking about Brazil here, the land of racial mixing…

  36. chrisman says:

    July 26th, 2010 at 2:45 pm

    That’s not true. Is it rare, yes, but it is definitely not impossible. Notwithstanding, most blacks- especially those in North and South America- are the product of racial mixing, due to imperialism.

  37. greeneyedsoul says:

    July 26th, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    Very few people on this earth are “pure” anything. The average African American, for example, is 20% white. Yet, we don’t refer to them as “mixed”.

  38. Miyoshi says:

    July 27th, 2010 at 1:14 am

    I love his face, and he’s only 18!!! he has a future for sure. Wish him the best.

    Love the colour of his eyes and his jawbones!

    @ Darwin, your comment is actually false. Lighter colored eyes are actually rare among most humans, even Europeans < most Europeans have brown eyes. Lighter eyes have nothing to do with race (race dosen't existence), and occurs randomely but can be passed down from generation to generation… like albinoism. And in fact lighter eyes are caused by the same genes that cause albinoism, genes that are not specific to "white" people. If there's pure African albinos, there's going to be pure Africans with lighter eyes, LOL. Your obviously not aware of African genetic and phenotypical diversity, meaning random genetic mutations occur on a much more frequent level among Africans than they do elsewhere… therefore why lighter eyes among Africans dosen't equal European admixture, but genetic diversity. For example this Nilo-Saharan speaking Western Sudanese girl…


    or this Niger-Kordofanian speaking Rwandian girl


    or this Cushitic speaking Kenyan women


    Skin tone, facial features, hair texture, height, genetics, etc, are most diverse among Africans in comparison to anywhere else in the world. Via indigenous development, not through European or Arab admixture.

    @ greeneyedsoul, thats actually the old estimate in regard to non-African admixture among African-Americans. According to Tishkoff 2009, the most accurate and significant study in regard to African and African Disporia populations, African-Americans are only between 8-13% European… 87-92% African. 0% Native American. That figure is the same in regard to many other African Disporia populations in the Caribbean and Latin America… + historically mulatto populations as well. For example the average Afro-Colombian is 90% African, while a segment of the Afro-Brazilian population is on average 94% African, the other 6-10% being a mix of both Native and European. Also, the average White Brazilian is only 58-80% European. 10-25% African, and 8-20% indigenous American. European ancestry among White Brazilians increases as you move south, African ancestry increases as you move north. Therefore any White Brazilians in regard to Rael's ancestry were likely highly mixed… only 58% European, since he is from Northeast Brazil; Bahia to be exact. ~80% of the Northeast Brazil is Afro-Brazilian.

    It’s albinism not albinoism.

    Rael is so gorgeous…WOW!

    @John…amazing comment! You obviously are a very intelligent man and I thank you for bring such incredible enlightenment to the very ignorant posters. We need more people like YOU in this world.

    his big yellow eyes scare me!!!! I’m scared!!
    BUT I think it’s AWESOME great for high fashion he should go far.

  52. anen says:

    @john thanks for those pics African people colored eyes are different from european colored eyes i can see the difference =)

  53. Mimi says:

    September 25th, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    Danggggg. Not sure what to think about those eyes.

  54. matt says:

    October 7th, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    It is stupid that people are talking about race. Most of it is mixed within the last 10,000 years or so because of trade and war. About a fifth of african americans carry genetic haplogroups that have originated in europe and lot of european americans carry haplogroups that have originated in africa and middle east. It would make more sense to talk about admixture rates.



    He is a very good looking guy indeed.

  55. Yasmin says:

    He definitely has white in him no matter what you say john.

    What John said, it all derives from Africa.

    This guy is gorgeous no matter what race he is!!! But he obviously is mixed / multi-racial which – happen to be the most beautiful people. In fact, all of mankind is genetically mixed since we are all descendants of Noah, anyway. So, who cares? We are called the HUMAN race. Thank God for variety! To me, this young man happens to be one of the best looking males of the human species.

    Reading these comments made me love even more my country… i didn’t know that racism was so present in north america. I’m so glad to live in a country that discussing about the etnic origins of someone is pointless and ridiculous, afterall we REALLY dont care about it. We believe that we are people, not dogs to have “races”
