So this guy is Latino but the Guyanese/Indian guy is Asian? The description is meant to give visual clues not ethnic background, like how we don’t describe a person by the team they follow “black, 6ft tall, 200lbs, mets fan, follows nickleback on twitter, last seen wearing blue jeans” we should stick to describing people by the way they look. Latino? You can say he speaks Spanish and English, with Dominican ancestry.
