Bohemian Spirit in the Buffet Line

Ran into this guy in the buffet line in Prague and was fascinated by his background. His story makes any evolutionary theory of nature OR nurture look lame. Can you guess his ethnicity?

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, closeup and outdoorSome interesting facts about this young fellow:
1. His race was almost completely wiped out by the Nazis (no, not Jew)
2. Literacy among his people is among the lowest on the continent.
3. One of 6 kids in his family, he’s the first AND only one in his ENTIRE ancestry to get a college degree. Not one, but he’s working on his second degree while holding a job with the state department of welfare housing.
4. He is as well versed in American and Asian politics as he’s with his country’s.
5. He plans to publish a series of history books for children to educate them about minorities and their contribution to the culture.
6. The “Bohemian spirit” can be traced back to his ethnic group.
7. He turned vegetarian because it’s the right thing to do.

Wisdom of a seer, sharp as a tack. Felt like I was conversing with an Obama in his college days. Won’t be surprised if he becomes president of this country (or a leading diplomat) one day.
