J Alexander Kueng‘s ethnicity has been revealed. It has been confirmed that he is African-American but whether or not he is of Swiss descent is still unknown.

Born on October 8, 1993, Kueng is the son of John Dennis Kueng, a certified registered nurse anesthetic, and Joni L. Kueng, a math teacher. Details about the parents’ ethnicity are not available but on June 4, 2020, J Alexander’s lawyer Thomas C. Plunkett revealed that his client is African-American.

J Alexander’s personnel files, which were heavily redacted, reveals that he speaks, reads and writes Russian. So is he European, too?

Apparently, Kueng, also spelled Küng, is a Swiss surname. The official languages in Switzerland are German, Italian, French and Romansh.

Meanwhile, here are five Swiss people with this surname:

  1. All that’s important is that he is AFRICAN AMERICAN! Swiss has NOTHING to do with anything, like Zimmerman being a WHITE Latino who’s skin is five shades darker than Beyonce’s. Please, try to TELL THE TRUTH!

  2. And like night follows day, here come the white people saying black cops can’t further their own self-interest by participating in a corrupt system that fails to protect vulnerable citizens from police brutality, just because of the color of that cop’s skin. I don’t make judgment about anyone personally, but please don’t pretend that black cops can’t be part of this problem.

  3. Who freaking cares about his Fn race. Others are making this a race issue. They killed or participated in the killing of an unarmed man that so happens to be black and we don’t know yet, however they are saying it was a fraudulent $20 bill. So that means he should be killed? Again, who really gives a F if he is black or white. He didn’t protect this man. I mean really?
