Heavy.com’s Cesar Sayoc: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know does not, in the tradition of Heavy.com, directly tell you the race of the suspect in the case of the pipe bombs that didn’t explode.

He claims to be Native American, and according to a picture posted on his social media page, he is a member of the Seminole Tribe of Florida.
