Etymologically, Laporte, and Laporte's family, are from ethnic groups based in modern-day Zambia or modern-day Democratic Republic of Congo, with some Occidental French mixed in. Manuel is likely French from the limited information that can be parsed, here, whilst Martin is probably African. They're not from the same sides of Laporte's family tree.
Laporte is likely mixed race and brown skinned from a postcolonial nation. Laporte grew up in a household with Zambian cuisine. Another indicator is the bloodshot eye hallucinogenic bitmap in BP Complete. The image shows one of Laporte's eyes. Whilst you don't see the entire face, the reference image for Laporte shows a coffee brown woman with prominent, plausibly mixed race cheekbones.
Chiwetel Steele has a middle-English and West African name. You can assume he's a person of colour, as well, or he grew up in an environment with a high level of cultural interplay.
However, that is a blinkin' good head avi that deserves to be in -something- BP-esque. I'm going to liberate it.
