Another thing. Anyone can have blonde hair. If somewhere in your family pedigree theres blonde hair you can inherit the trait.

That's not how it works. As I understand it, both skin and hair colour are linked to melanin levels - the higher the melanin levels, the darker your skin and hair are. That's why paler people are more likely to have blonde/red hair, while black people have black hair

 

In addition, blonde hair is a recessive trait, so no, a tiny amount in your family wouldn't cause you to have blonde hair, since there'd be a higher chance of you not being blonde if there are more in your family with darker hair, which is a trait often found within dark-skinned people due to the above melanin-related link I mentioned.

A recessive trait just means both have to be recessive for it to appear. So it's possible. And when you say paler people I assume you mean only white people

Kratos is black his skin is covered in ashes is all if ashes were removed he would be black even in gow 2 his army armour he was black in it
We all know his skin is covered in ashes. That's obvious. 
He is not black though, look at his daughter (she's very caucasian). And the live action trailer has Kratos played by a white man.

Dang phone shut up bark. Now deimos is black. Calliope is white because her mom is white she got her mother's traits. Kratos mom is only seen ONCE and I think she is black. Kratos is half black half Caucasian ares is white cause they have a different mother.
