    um.. his skin is black so yeah, he's black. as for Africa, yes. he has roots in Africa. he has said his ancestors were in the triangle slave trade.

    as for the other answerer who said Silva is a Brazilian name. Jackson and Washington are American names hence the founding fathers. BUT it is common for slave owners to give their last name to their slaves hence Booker T. Washington or Quinton Jackson (who has REPEATEDLY stated his slave ancestors)

    Um... he's black. I don't know why that's so hard to figure out. Most of the slaves from Africa, back during those horrible times, actually ended up in Brazil. Brazil does have a lot of racial mixing with those of African, European, and native Indian decent, but Silva's a black guy.

    Lol..African Brazilian. Yes he is obviously black. Who said that Brazilians have a designated color? Just because he is black means that his family comes from Africa? Brazilians come in all colors man. Also since Silva is a traditional Brazilian name, I assume that his family linage is based out of Brazil.
