I know Dick Grayson is Romani, while Jason Peter Todd is most likely Irish, but what's Tim's ethnic background?

Im African American so i think it be cool if he was like 1/9 black then he could go to africa and train and be like half bat and half black panther in fighting style however i admit this will probably never happen and is probably a stupid idea

Hes american. His mother was probably a catholic, ergo why he tried to find god. He is an atheist by his own admission.

I think Dixon was asked once and he said he was probably a jew, but Nicieza already wrote otherwise.
