BLACKS WITH BLUE EYES: NATURAL PHENOMENON OR GENETIC MUTATION??

It is generally believed that black people do not possess blue eyes. The blue eyes has always been associated with the Caucasians (whites). In many scientific studies and a more recent one conducted by the Copenhagen University the genetic mystery of "blue eyes" is said to have originated from the northeast coast of the Black Sea.

 So why are some few black people have "blue eyes' nowadays?  The answer according to scientists could only be attributed to genetic mutation or Waardenburg syndrome (WS),which is a rare (1/40,000) disease characterized by sensorineural deafness in association with pigmentary anomalies and defects of neural-crest-derived tissues.

However,it is also a historical truth the Africans colonized Europe over 10,000 years ago and they were inf fact the first homo sapiens to cross Europe to Asia and south pacific. Could it also be that some blacks with blue eyes may have gotten blue eyes from  their ancient  African ancestors and whites that inter-bred during Africa`s colonization of Europe? This question has become more relevant as some few children born of both African/100% black parents possesses "blue eyes."

Also, the boy in the picture does not appear to have Waardenberg Syndrome, also a source of blue eyes in blacks. This leaves the strong possibility of a rare mutation of a key eye color gene.

                          Blue eyes as a Result of Wardenberg Syndrome


There are four types of Waardenburg Syndrome, with a mix of possible characteristics as the determinant. Medical challenges increase with type. The boy in the picture is displaying two major symptoms of type 1, as does the previous boy (perhaps) (); bright blue eyes and dystopia canthorum, a condition where the inner corners of the eyes are set more widely apart, but with normally distanced eyes.

Waardenburg occurs once in every 42,000 births, and is a deficiency inherited from a single parent, who may or may not display similar characteristics. Regarding the eye, color abnormalities come in three forms; heterochromia (multiple colors), bilateral isohypochromia (pale blue eyes), or fundus (reflective) pigmentary alterations (spottiness).

So, besides naturally occurring genetic blue eyes in dark skinned people, as previously discussed, understanding Waardenburg's is another avenue of accurately recognizing phenotype (gene expression) in eye color.

Below is a story on the origins of blue eyes :

All blue-eyed people can be traced back to one ancestor who lived 10,000 years ago near the Black Sea

By MICHAEL HANLON


                                                 Black girl with blue eyes

Everyone with blue eyes can be traced back 10,000 years to the Black Sea region
Throughout history they have been the eyes that are prized.
Frank Sinatra's were legendary, Paul Newman's melted a million hearts while Cameron Diaz's dazzle in modern Hollywood.

But how - and why - blue eyes arose has always been something of a genetic mystery. Until now.
According to a team of researchers from Copenhagen University, a single mutation which arose as recently as 6-10,000 years ago was responsible for all the blue-eyed people alive on Earth today.
The team, whose research is published in the journal Human Genetics, identified a single mutation in a gene called OCA2, which arose by chance somewhere around the northwest coasts of the Black Sea in one single individual, about 8,000 years ago.

Actor Michael Ealy has sky blue eyes.
The gene does not "make" blue in the iris; rather, it turns off the mechanism which produces brown melanin pigment. "Originally, we all had brown eyes," says Dr Hans Eiberg, who led the team.
And most people still do. The finding that a rare mutation, probably dispersed in the rapid wave of colonisation that followed the end of the last ice age, highlights one of the great mysteries of human evolution: the oddness of Europeans.
Those from Europe and the Near-East have many characteristics that set them apart from the rest of the human race.
Not only are Europeans far more likely to have blue eyes (95 per cent in some Scandinavian countries), they also have a far greater range of skin tones and hair colour than any other ethnic grouping.

It is only in Europe that you will find large numbers of blondes and redheads, brunettes, pale skins and olive skins, blueeyed and green-eyed people living together in the same communities. Across the rest of the world people are almost uniformly darkhaired and dark-eyed.
Why this should be remains unknown, and in particular how such mutations can have arisen so quickly since Europe was colonised by Africans just a few tens of thousands of years ago.
One theory is that Europe's cold weather and dark skies played a part. Fair skin is better at making Vitamin D from the 8 per cent of the world's population have blue eyes weak sunlight found in northern latitudes.
Another suggestion is that the strange skin, eye and hair colours seen in Europe are down to ancient interbreeding with the Neanderthals, who died out about 25,000 years ago.
Maybe the Neanderthals were blonde or red-haired and it is their genes which we have inherited. The trouble with this theory is that there is no evidence, from the scraps of Neanderthal DNA that have been recovered from bones, that there was any substantial interbreeding between them and Homo sapiens at all.
Perhaps the most plausible theory is that blonde hair and blue eyes arose because of a mechanism called sex selection.

Zimbawean boy with blue eyes

This is where males and females choose as their mates those who have one unusual physical characteristic, not necessarily associated with "fitness" per se but simply something unusual.
The gigantic (and otherwise useless) tail of the peacock is the best example.

Sex selection comes to the fore when there is a lot of competition for mates of one sex or the other. The theory is that in Europe, where men had to spend weeks at a time out on the hunt, males were in very short supply.
In such societies, women who had flaxen locks stood a better chance of standing out and attracting the attention of the few men that would have been available for mating.
Even back then, the blue-eyed blonde was not only in demand, but also definitely would have had more fun.

    3. I am 100% African, Kenyan. Unfortunately millions of people in Africa DO believe in witches/devils just because a fellow African is different. Their thinking is very backwards. The Albino population in Tanzania for example, people actually hunt them down and hack off their limbs because they believe they have magical powers. They do not care about learning about science that proves genetic mutations. Even gay people, they face the death penalty in some countries in Africa.
      I remember when we visited our family back in Kenya, a neighbor was considered a "witch". We were told to make sure not to leave anything that was personal to us. Freaked me out. Supposedly at night, while we were sleeping, the "witch" walked around the house we were in trying to peer into the windows at us. Even with AIDS...people believe sleeping with a virgin would cure AIDS, so that is one way HIV/AIDS spreads.
      A ton of backwards thinking still permeates the minds of Africans...I am sad to say.

      The LIARS know this to because in the supplemental data from the study they found that the specimen was most probably Y-chromosome DNA Haplogroup C.The most ancient groups with C Haplogroups are Australian Aboriginals, and Papua New Guineas.


      http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vaop/ncurrent/extref/nature12960-s1.pdf on page 15
      "When mutations defining those haplogroups were checked,
      only ancestral alleles were found in the haplogroup F-defining mutations, whereas
      seven C-defining mutations (M130, M216, P255, P260, V183, V199 and V232) showed
      only derived alleles. Thus, La Braña 1 most likely belonged to haplogroup C. The actual
      distribution of haplogroup C is thought to be a consequence of a single out of Africa
      migration through Southern Asia, followed by a northward migration that eventually
      reached Siberia and the Americas"

  2. I think it's strange to say these blue eyes are the symptom of a disease. I know Waardenburg has many other symptoms, so i wonder if they stand alone or accompany many other symptoms because if they don't I'd say these eyes are like a gift from God.

    4. youre retarfed. obviously you dont kbow how to read cuz youre too busy worshipping god "work". it clearly said only a few of them were caused by disease. the other were unexplainable, and just happened to be genetic in the same way white people get blue eyes. this was the whole point of the fucking read!

    5. I'm just going to point out that, for someone insisting another should learn to read. You should first, learn to spell and second, learn to capitalise letters. I think the focus of Daniel F's words, were that the word 'disease' tends to have negative connotations. Rather, consider the possibility that people are different, and we should be proud of our differences and uniqueness.

    1. The lighter your eyes are the less melanin, without melanin you have serious problems seeing in the sunlight. That's why albinos have trouble seeing outdoors. To have a slight blindness in the sunlight in the motherland is actually a curse...

    3. I have heterochromia- My eyes change 4 different colors. Hazel when I am contempt- normal, dark green for when I am sad and bright green for when I cry, brown when I am angry, and blue when I'm excited. It is a gift and I love my eyes. To see them change throughout each day is always a new wonder. (thecleverone_neo@yahoo.com)

    4. Wow you sure must be a fascinating sight to behold. You are lucky.

    5. Madison: That is not heterochromia. Heterochromia is having 2 or more separate colors in the an eye or eyes. Like I have a cat that has 1 blue eye and 1 yellow eye. The changing of the color of your eyes based on mood is something else. What you have are Hazel colored eyes. Due to the amount of pigment or lack there of. Environmental effects can give the optical illusion that they are changing color, when it's really the light reflecting off your eyes or numerous other thing that can effect it. While it is a cool effect, your eyes are not actually changing colors. Melanin levels don't change that quickly for it to be possible. They can change over time like how kittens are all born with blue eyes and they change about 6 weeks.

      Delete
    6. Another interesting thing about blue eyes and cats is that solid white cats with blue eyes can't hear and if the cat has heterochromia, it can only hear out of the ear on the same side as the non-blue eye. On a side note I have blue eyes and so do my 3 brothers and late father. My mother is the only one who doesn't have them in my immediate family. Blue eyes is also a recessive trait, which means both parents must give the gene for it. this means, my mother has 1 blue eye gene and 1 brown eye gene and passed the blue eye gene to us all, similar to how my father passed the male gene to us all.

  4. I know for a couple of years that black people can have blue eyes, but I always think blue eyes are a bit freaky. It looks better with a white skin tone, though it still looks freakish to me. I don't agree that there is a great diversity among Europeans in their skin tone. I know their is a variety, but most of them have a minor difference in skin tone than coloured people.

    1. A friend of mine (a woman) who is white, told me that having blue eyes is an error in the DNA.

      Delete
    2. Your friend was only partially correct, since she is conflating genetic mutation with the subjective assessment of the term "error". All changes in genetic transposition can be considered errors, but those errors are what happen to progress the evolutionary process. Not all changes in the genetic code result in obvious genetic expression, and most will result in non-viability of the organism. If the change has a benefit (or at least, confers no harm)to the organism, it will (possibly) be passed on to that organism's offspring. That's how evolution works, cool, huh?

  5. Wow...the lack of knowledge about eye color and genetics displayed in both the article itself and the replies here is kind of staggering. Most of it seems to be made up from cultural myth and preconception, rather than any study of actual genetic predisposition in real human beings.

    Coming from a heavily diverse ethnic gene pool myself, my family background incorporated many different eye and hair colors. I have brown eyes which are upturned slightly, no doubt due to the influence of my Chinese and Native American relatives. My skin is the color of milk chocolate, my hair is dark brown and wavy rather than kinky, what black folks erroneously call "good hair" because it is effortless to take care. All of these things are determined by the genetic soup of genes, as are the eyes of most everyone pictured here, because somewhere in their family tree there is one of the (granted, scarcer)groups who feature blue eyes.

    People with blue eyes developed evolutionarily in cooler climes, and without the necessity to have dark skin or eyes to protect them from strong sunlight conditions. The black people pictured from African countries are folks whose families, in the past, likely had contact with white traders, and an amount of cross breeding took place. Blue eyes being a recessive trait, would not appear in every person in the line thereafter, but they would occur randomly down that slightly mixed bloodline. No big deal.

    For people with genetic of other diseases which cause a change in perceived eye color, it is simply part of the disease process. Either way, we have to stop mooning over blue eyes and dark skin as if it is special or notable in any way--the world is a much greater genetic melting pot than it was in the time of slavery, when the trait of blue-eyed blacks was first strongly noted on a cultural level--there should be no more surprise associated with blue eyes on a person ethnically regarded as Afro American, than a blond with dark brown or black eyes. We are all pretty mixed these days. NO BIG WHOOP.

    And the idea that eyes "change color" during emotional upheaval is not only ignorant, it is also silly as well as baseless. It is usually the IDEA of the change being in the mind of the observer that causes this to happen. Your eyes do not change color except according to the lighting conditions of the room itself, and when you are angry, perhaps you open your eyes up wide--which might make them appear brighter, no doubt due to more surface area of the reflective iris being exposed to greater light. See? Perception, not reality. Much like many of the things noted in the article above.

    4. Well, I disagree about the change of tone - I myself have eyes that are blue/green/grey, and very much depending on the weather and my state of being (probably blood circulation) they could look simply grey with a touch of green or pretty much blue when I cry for example.
      A number of people who know me have noted this and told me as well, without me mentioning anything beforehand. I just laugh and say, I know! I have multicolour eyes.
      About the notion of perception, it may be the case of course that this is just sheer perception, but then it is a perception shared by a number of people in the same way in similar occasions.
      Well anyway.

    5. My manager's eyes were blue, but then I noticed they were green on another day. I spoke to him about it, and he told me "yeah I get that alot." I asked him why does it happen, are you stressed out? He doesn't understand it himself, and doesn't look at himself enough to figure it out is what he told me.

      And also, no.. Africans and African-Americans didn't out of the blue develop genetic diversity from European settlers. African descendants are the most genetically diverse group of people on Earth. It is scientifically proven from genetic studies that human migration from Africa to Europe occurred some 30,000 years ago. The genetics of the founders of Europe and Asia have less genetically diverse. "The DNA of European-Americans appears to carry proportionately more harmful genetic changes than that of African-Americans, because they emerged from a smaller and less diverse population."
      http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/3326376/African-DNA-has-more-genetic-diversity.html

      African descendants have been documented to mutate and create blonde hair, from a genetic marker not found in European descendants. So the mutation of blue eyes is not impossible.
      http://www.livescience.com/20078-gene-mutation-blond-hair.html

      So for the love of God, and the love of humanity, how about we respect the genetics of African descendants and stop with ignorantly portraying European settlers has the originators of genetic diversity. Thank you.

    6. Sorry but you do have one thing wrong here. I know someone very intimately who has almond brown eyes, no flecks of green or yellow, a flat, though beautiful, clear almond brown. When he's excited, they turn the most beautiful deep olive green you've ever seen. So yes, some people do have the trait of eye color change during emotional moments.

    7. It's called an optical illusion. They're eyes are not really changing color. It is lighting, water in the eyes reflecting light when crying, blood flow, and who knows what else that gives the illusion the color is changing. It really is not as that would require a change in Melanin levels that doesn't just change that quickly. A person's eyes can darken or lighten over time, aka yrs, but not in a matter of minutes because of a mood change.

    8. So it seems to me that basically they are saying blue eyes are african just more common in european/caucasians. In other words they are not exclusive or originateing from "whites"(european/caucasions) I would say its important to realize considering that i notice people try to claim something in their favor. a number of white people easily hype about how they get blue eyes especially if they are blue eyed. Esentially i would say anyone born with blue eyes is just likely to be born with a vein streak especially a blue eyed born female individual. I personally have always favored brown eyes, especially in men, and i have been personally mesmerized by hazel eyes (deep/darker brown with apparent tones of green in this case..) In my eyes i see that to be more rare and mesmerizing. Blue eyes are not even as rare as people say really, just a type that is not as common as brown. I would not associate blue eyes with beauty unless the person is especially beautiful like all of the people we can obviously see have all around beauty in their bone structures, facial shapes, exoticness or skin. I also just find it to be somewhat weird or eccentric for a very dark skinned person to have such a bright/light eye color.

  6. LOL... I could be condescending here but I will let your arrogance mock you since you are clearly young and have no basis for your opinion... I won’t call you by name but you know who you are… meantime you were probably born with blue eyes like most humans... but please don't take my word for it... http://chemistry.about.com/cs/howthingswork/f/eyecolor.htm or pretty much any other article under eye color change… when born my hair was black and my eyes blue, as an adult my eyes are hazel and my hair a kind of dirty blond with red… my brother was born with white blond hair and blue eyes, his eyes are now also hazel and his hair dirty blond with brown… our hair texture and skin tones changed too… people, especially of mixed heritage, can change seven ways from Sunday, after birth and thru puberty, sorry you remained so bland… Natasha many people perceive eye color to change, it is not ignorant just an unexplained observation, keep in mind that people who talk down to others often know the least, their ego’s and narcissism don’t allow a learning curve. Eye color in fact can change as our irises do not actually hold color but reflect light variation depending on pigment or lack thereof, thus some albinos seem to have red/pink eyes when in fact they simply reflecting blood vessels. Think of the way there is no blue universe only black, yet when the Sun filters it creates a spectrum giving the illusion of a blue, pink, yellow, and sometimes even purple sky depending on the time of day. So if your sons eyes are in fact a mix, say perhaps of dark blue outside and brown inside, and he angers allowing pupil dilation and a larger amount of light reflection, the brown can be downplayed into a blue look… also, when the whites of eyes change color, for example when I cry and whites become reddish, my eyes appear bright green… because the red contrasts more with the green than with my grey or blue… however some are asserting that because hormone change is what causes “eye color” (pigment) change in children and adolescents, that extreme hormone level deviation, like the fight or flight response, could change pigment until level of normalcy is reached… I suppose like when women are sexually aroused causing flushing of cheeks, enlarging of lips and breasts up to a half cup, and narrowing of waist until the experience is complete and the body returns to pre arousal state… however I am not sure those assertions of pigment change are based on anything factual rather that there is nothing to the contrary, kind of a why not idealism than an attempt at explanation… much like the way the earth was thought flat and geocentric with circular planetary movement verses round and heliocentric with elliptical movement…no proof for the founding ideals, just nothing to the contrary at the time

    1. Women do not change shape when aroused. I've never heard of something so silly and I'm not sure where you've heard it or why you're asserting it as fact either.

      And eye color does vary to some degree given light filters and the angle of reflection, but not to such a degree that one's solid brown eyes can appear to be blue. More often than not this blurred line is only between the colors of gray+blue, gray+green, blue+green, and green+brown. These eye colors are difficult to differentiate between either way though, given the degree of variation in the human race.

      Eye and hair color does commonly change as one ages. It's well observed and documented. I myself was born with black hair and blue eyes and over the period of 20 years, they gradually changed to a bright green. My little brother was born with hazel eyes which turned darker brown as he aged. This is normal.

      The idea that a person's eyes change color according to emotion though, is indeed juvenile and mildly ignorant. There's no arguing that, friend. Your eyes do not change color according to mood. Lighting and angling and your own perception of them changes. Sometimes when I wear blue, people will think my eyes have turned blue, but that's not true. They're still green. It's merely a trick of light and reflection which makes them look blue when one does not look close enough. n__n

      I would like to make my eyes turn brown when I get angry though. It's a romantic thought if not a bit silly. lol

  7. Just want to add a little science without drama. Most humans are not Caucasian so MOST babies are born with brown eyes. It is very rare for a non-white baby to be born with blue eyes. That is why these pictures are so amazing.
    Also light-skinned people got that way not because they didnt need pigment for protection but because a lack of pigment was a benefit in northern latitudes where winter's short days really limited the amount of Vitamin D the body produced. That is survival of the fittest. But a lack of pigment most often means it is not just missing from the skin but from the eyes too. Brown skinned people with blue eyes are so unusual because their body makes plenty of pigment but the gene that makes melanin go into the eyes is shut off. They may be more a little more sensitive to sunlight but the unusual combination is stunning!!

    1. Pigment is a necessity in northern latitudes to protect from ultraviolet radiation. Lack of pigment is not a benefit. Caucasians migrated from asia to Europe to meet out-of-africa indigenes who did not lighten due to winter. http://www.nairaland.com/955076/black-african-nobility-ancient-europe

  8. The answer is that the greatest genetic variation found in the oldest group of people, the original inhabitants of South Africa. This is due to new genes, mutations do not disappear, but gradually accumulate in a population of people, the older the population the more different genes. When scientists find the gene for blue eyes has its source in the Black Sea, for ten thousand years ago so it may be due to a person from South Africa have carried gene to the Black Sea for ten thousand years ago. But because Africa is not included in the study so the researchers found no rare oldest versions of the gene.

    1. Exactly! Most studies only include people of European descendants. If African descendants started migrating out of African some 40,000 years ago, it makes sense if the appearance of blue eyes only appeared some 10,000 years ago. It also explains why Native Americans have the least genetic diversity - they migrated further away from the source, thus with a lesser populated group of people comes more harmful genetic mutations and issues. African descendants, and specifically those from South Africa have the richest genetics on the globe.

      And new genes are created from scratch, which is a phenomenon I'm trying to understand more.

  13. Africans with blue eyes have been going on since the beginning of time. Caucasians descended from the recessive genes of people in Africa. Two people with the recessive gene to create blue eyes would end up having a child with blue eyes. Simple as that. Everyone has genetic markers to create something different. My grandma has a twin and they both look identical except for one thing. My grandma's twin is taller than she is and my grandma is short. Two people who look exactly alike but have a genetic marker that is different in hieght. I'm tired of people talking about whites and black mixing and that's why things are the way they are. If that's the case then why is it that since the beginning of time. Africans have been recorded to have a white baby??? We all come from one race. It's just that genetics choose to create a different branch from time to time when it comes to identity. Other wise we would all look alike.

      The races are just a group of people that isolated themselfs from others for enough time to create phisical and genetical diferences due sexual selection or dapatations to the enviroment.
      blue eyes outside of albinism can only be present in caucasians or people mixed with them FACT.even is logical since having eyes with less melanin will be a disadvantage in warm climates.

    2. Blue eye color in whites is also a genetic mutation you ignorant dumbass. and if it evolved once in one population, it's ridiculous to assume it won't evolve again in another. Not all non-whites with blue eyes have a "disease." Anyone educated in biology will know that given the chance, there is nothing to prevent the same allele in a black person going through the same exact mutation that gave rise to blue eyes in Europe tens of thousands of years ago. Blue eyes have evolved in many populations, even nonhuman ones. Cats, rodents, dogs, reptiles, all have evolved blue eyes. Why do people still wrongfully assume that only white people can have that trait? Any living thing with eyes have evolve that trait given time. Seriously.

The blue eyes on the persons of African heritage look horribly freakish and out of place to me, it just doesn't look right and natural in my opinion, it just looks out of place. Blue eyes on persons of European heritage such as that of the Scandinavian countries, Denmark, Sweden and Norway and some other countries in Europe just looks right and a natural fit but definitely not on an African. I know God works in mysterious ways and has his own way of doing things with his creations but that doesn't mean his subjects( us Humans ) can't or shouldn't question his decisions and ways of doing things at times. Like I said, the comment I made about the African(s) with Blue eyes looking freakish and out of place is just me giving my opinion on such but I still have to say that God is seriously one weird and twisted dude that does weird things to his creations sometimes.

      Instead of asking questions like "Who are the elders, white or black?" You should be asking yourself, "Why is the truth behind the origins of human genetics so misunderstood?" No one wants to hear "my genes are better than yours" I suppose, superiority complexes are destroying humanity... How? If 80% of the world's wars are being fought on the most biologically diverse areas of the Earth, slaughtering and killing such rich sources of diverse genetics, AND myths of diseases like HIV and the such are spreading rapid-fire amonst the indigenous in these lands, after 100 years Earth is going to become a cesspool of incest. A better question is, Why is that happening? And who benefits from this? Surely not humanity has a whole... It's so tragic.

  22. Personally, I don't buy the "Sexual selection" theory. There are people in the South Pacific with dark skin and naturally blonde hair that arose from an independent gene line of the ones that gave Europeans blonde hair. They don't seem to worship blonde or light hair as more desirable. Maybe it's because no one from the outside ever told them it was. I think the "sexual selection" theory is simply white supremacy masking itself as a scientific theory.

  25. I also find this very interesting. I was just wondering if a lot of Black people have pale, pale skin but dark hair and dark eyes (I'm trying to explain the presence of this minor character in a story I'm writing--he seems way out of place) when I came across this article. I am Black, lighter-skinned, dark eyed, and my immediate family and many members of my extended family are browner than me. I grew up in the Southern United States in predominantly Black communities. Most of the people I knew have dark hair, brown skin, and dark eyes. You get lighter brown skin and hazel sometimes, but most people I've known have deeper shades of brown all around and dark eyes. Hair, eye, or skin color that is lighter or white is definitely an anomaly where I come from; these people are presumed to be part white whether they are or not and this is ignorantly considered to be better than being of darker brown shades.

    So what does bother me about comments I've read on this post is the fact that, like where I grew up, people have been raised to love and praise whiteness and anything associated with it (including blue eyes) but despise and look down anything brown, anything that is associated with Blackness or of the African ancestors. Internalized racism as a result of the trauma of slavery's history and purposeful miseducation of the people is such a burden where I've come from. Its sad (and frankly annoying and frustrating) to see so many people fawning and fainting over blue-eyed brown children and pale-skinned non-white children when most of us are NOT blue-eyed, are NOT albino, and are oftentimes the objects of rabid racism and colorism. People using African couples having white-skinned children as a reason to shout "AH HA!" or make some kind of point. It really doesn't do any good to go on about how "we're all from Africa" or of the same family, or to prattle on about genetics and evolution, when racism, disregard, and hate taints so many people's perspectives and minds, especially Black people.

    I definitely agree that it CANNOT be assumed that blue eyes in Black or African peoples comes from whites. Though it is refreshing to be reminded of how interesting genetics can be.

    1. Stating genetic facts has nothing to do with racism or hate, or thinking that one race is better. I come from a family of scientists, and blue eyes ARE a recessive trait that originate in white Northern Europeans, and/or Eastern Europeans. If they are found outside of this, then they are due to mixing with those groups, disease or genetic mutation. Either way, they are still beautiful. Some of the blacks photos on this page though, are clearly mixed-race with whites, as their other features give that away.

      I am so tired of hearing about the "trauma" associated with slavery in black people. What the media and falsified public school system does not teach, is complete history. For example, every single race on the planet has a history of slavery! As a by and by - blacks enslaved their own people, sold them as such throughout history, and in some parts of Africa continue slavery to this very day. The anger about black slavery, and need for revenge should therefore be correctly directed to blacks in Africa. Not whites.

      For those of you who are curious about "white" slavery, they were kept for hundred of years by the Mongolians, Romans, and in the Middle East. They were treated far more barbarically than any black ever was by white-Europeans. Their heads were cut off just for entertainment, or because they over-baked a loaf of bread. It took "whites" hard fighting, and hundreds of years to climb up and out of that evilness. Yet, as a whole we don't hear "whites" expecting any special treatment, consideration, or favor from the mass public; or from the racial groups and countries that enslaved them.

      Sadly, you find also find beautiful light eyes in the Middle East because whites were kept as slaves. Keep that sad fact in mind next time you see a picture of this on Facebook or elsewhere to "admire". It is a dark reminder of whites very own horrific journey to freedom.

      The only logical reason any race would look up to anything with "whiteness" as you put it, is because these recessive traits are often associated with a multitude of beautiful colors in both hair and eyes. It's not that they are better than anyone else, rather they are indeed a very beautiful racial group. Let's face it! Colors are pretty! Who here would say they don't have a favorite color, or that they can't appreciate the different shades of a rainbow? There is some kind of sick hatred towards white people lately, on TV, and on the internet. They have not (as a group) committed anything more or less worse than other races have, yet they are made to feel they must repay some strange guilt debt to the globe. I could list off 5 countries that for the same reasons would be made to pay the same debt, and yet are left in peace. Only one word comes to mind for this cruel and blatant unfairness.......jealousy. We all need to get over it too. Everyone wants to be the popular kid, but some people are just going to be better looking, even in our own racial group. That's life!

    2. "that's life" you say, as you describe the trials of whites and minimize the trials of blacks. Power, concentrated among monarchy and now corporations has been consuming human flesh through sacrifice and conflict and war. The black pawns and the white pawns fight among themselves directed by the players, protecting the valuable king and queen. white bleeding and black bleeding is red, everywhere. The fact that there are an overwhelming number of whites in fortune 500, in control of nukes, and having enacted chattel slavery upon 50 to 100 million abducted persons has nothing to do with the 'average' white person, granted. But the envy which you're perceiving is the freedom to walk, drive, eat candy and just be which is denied people with ultraviolet protection in their skin. your own comments pay homage to the stigma monarchy has attached to rich pigment 'expecting favor'. We've all been 'had'.

I've been doing some research for the pass couple of years but haven't found anything like this! This is the most explanation I've gotten my whole life which comes in a bit handy for next time someone ask how do I have blue eyes. I used to say its complicated or it's from my dad's side of the family as 2 more family members I know have blue eyes also we'll one and a half because my auntie have 1 brown 1 blue...
    None of us know the true Mswer to why we have blue eyes we just knew it was from deep down our family history.

  28. Some contention around the reason for light skin:

    * Genetic mutation occurred and was able to survive in norther latitudes as it caused no harm there. Sun not fierce enough to cause damage.
    * Genetic mutation occurred and conferred an advantage, in being able to produce more vitamin D.

    AFAIK, both plausible theories.

    Now there's a new theory that it relates also to effect of the agricultural vs hunter-gatherer diet:

  36. A genetic mutation IS a natural phenomenon. This title is silly. The two are not mutually exclusive.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Mutations occur naturally and new traits emerge. Nothing is perfect and therefore errors in the gene code will appear over time causing new phenotypes (traits). The phenotype of blue eyes can occur in any racial group. Obviously it occurs in Europeans and whites more because it is a more common for the recessive trait to appear due to many individuals carrying the recessive gene. Back in the day whites, like most racial groups, were isolated and primarily bred with other whites in their area spreading the recessive gene that proved advantageous...through sexual selection. See how everyone is fawning over the colored eyes...that's how it was when they first mutated in Europe or when they saw it in the older man in Europe(the Neanderthals) People want to get with the rare and beautiful eyed person and so the trait becomes more prevalent. In addition when the black people first migrated to Europe they began to have more mutations for eye color and skin shades due to the enviroments effects on the genes for melanin production. They didn't need as much so the human body adapted. While it is true interbreeding and selective breeding will create the phenotype in other racial groups quicker vs environmental initiated gentic changes the mutation can occur in any group randomly. I did take college genetics and actually was eager to learn in biology class so this is very clear to me.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The human genome is varied and as long as a phenotype is not posing a disadvantage to survival it will continue to spread and show up in the population in every racial group of the human population. The world has become smaller and races are mixing. The phenotype, if desired, will show up in more groups. The moral of the genetic story is mutations occur naturally, producing certain recessive traits different from the common(dominant) phenotype of the population, if those traits have any type of advantage (sexual selection in the coloring of eye and hair) then those traits will show up more in the population, if these new recessive traits cause a disadvantage then they will not be desired and will not be as prevalent in the genetic population.

  39. I like the articles assumption of Neanderthal interbreeding. It's a fact that the modern man is African born...however we have no true idea what the Neanderthal's looked like...but we do know they interacted with the new man and they died out...and that some white people of European decent are the only racial group that naturally contains those Neanderthal genes...if you are of another race and you have them it's because of interbreeding with those indiduals. It's safe to infer that some of the blacks that migrated into Europe mated with the Neanderthals already in Europe, who most likely developed the phenotypes of modern Europeans, the lighter skin and eyes, and thus the recessive gene was rapidly introduced into the modern man. It's not like the gene didn't show up before but in Africa the phenotype is not that advantageous...as the commentor from Africa stated above, most blacks in the groups in Africa in the past and in modern times didn't find the light eyes or skin in some cases sexually appealing, but instead a sign of something odd, shameful, or an abomination. They are partly right because it is an odd occurance when mutations occur. In addition to it's undesired appearance to the Africans, the mutations provided no real advantage in Africa's sun so it would not be common or desired there for optimum survival...follow me? Some of the blacks( I say that loosely because by the time the blacks reached Europe they may have already adapted other phenotypes typical of other racial groups) that were in Europe mated with the Neanderthals that had developed the traits for survival over time in Europe, and now the trait is common because among the European populace it is considered attractive and an advantage to the survival of the species...this goes for the lighter skin also. The Neanderthals die out due to disadvantages in other genes compared to modern man and possible war with the superior modern man but the traits that helped the Neanderthals survive in Europe are now common in the modern man in Europe...it's so clear to me. Other traits that helped the savage Neanderthals survive are also introduced into the modern man and over time you have a new races of man...one of which being the white race. Differing groups such as the Scandinavians obviously preferred the trait over other white groups but you get the idea of how it spread so rapidly in Europe. Those traits that helped the Neanderthals probably helped the white man become the race of subjugating people that we know today. Whites don't get offended your race is on top right now...but let's be real...look up imperialism...Africans and other groups did their share of conquering but those Europeans took that ish to another level and basically colonized most of Africa and many countries in Asia and the America's...the free world basically and while whites are not the most populous group on the Earth they feel the need to white wash the planet. It's a survival trait possibly strengthen by the Neanderthal's desperation to survive that was passed to the Europeans. However this is all theory...we may never know the 100% facts of what happened no matter how much research we do because of the lack of evidence and the fact that we may never know with certainty what occurred thousands of years in our past. The adaptability for survival and the variation of the modern man in response to survival in particular enviroments is amazing.
