I had the great pleasure of visiting afghanistan and turkey last summer! Both countries were beautiful and I noticed that afghans and turks appear to be caucasian. Especially in Afghanistan i saw so many women,children, and even old men with blonde hair, red hair, blue eye, green eyes. Are these nationalities white in history?? are there more middleastern nationalities that look like this? I researched alot about this but I want to hear what real afghans and turks have to say

naw, turks look more mongol but they definatly have fair skin. turks are a mixture of caucasian (middle east) and asian (mongolia)

but afghans are not all fair. most afghans are dark,but there face is caucasoid. but compared to europeans, afghans have a longer head, a longer nose, and more facial hair. afghans seem like they have a large nose.

compared with europeans, afghans are darker, mostly have darker eyes, darker hair etc...(some have green eyes). afghans are definatly caucasoid but they look very different from europeans. afghans look more like iranians, pakistanis, and north indians, than europeans

some people confuse afghans with indians, and pakistanis.

but turks are for the most part a hybreed of mongoloid and caucasoid, and they are central asian.

most turks have fair skin, small asian eyes, and a caucasoid nose

Afghan's are pure Aryans. They are one of the few-if not only-people who have had no racial mixing in their history. 100% Aryan.

Afghans are very diverse people, different regions have different looks , you can have afghans who look european -Nawid Rezai- or others who have darker skin tone . Afghans can have blong/brown/black hair green/blue/hazel/brown/blakc eyes.

Afghan can look like europeans/indian/pakistani/ira nian/mongolian/tajik/Uzbeck or genaraly middle eastern.

I say this as an afghan my self , i have black hair/brown eyes light skin tone like coucasian but slightly tanned.

It also has been conquered by a host of people, including the Median and Persian Empires, Alexander the Great, the Seleucids, the Indo-Greeks, Turks, and Mongols. Which had an influance of how afghan look.

that's not true at all. greeks under alexander the great settled in afghanistan after having occupied the area after alexander made his way thru the area. the pashtun group of afghanis are in fact intermingled with the blood of invaders dating back to ancient times.

i have seen plently of afghan who are beautiful white skin, only ignorant racist turk, believe that iranian , afghan are dark, no matter how many time you explain it for them, specially those azeri who consider themself oghuz, with their stupid cuacus theory.

turk are mongol period.

if you see a turk , with european look, they are turkified greek, and other eastern european.

Most afghans are dark and look like pakistanis.

The only Afghans that are white are the Nuristanis, Pashais, Pamiri. They are decendents from ancient rig-vedic tribes.

Tajiks and Pashtuns vary in looks can look black to white, to chinese. This is becuase they have been raped by so many invading armies, but most of them are a shade of brown.

I have visited afghanistan, and i found more whites green eyes, blue eyes blonde hair, or light brown hair, than anywhere else in middle east.. i agree with the person above, that Afghans are the only race which truly remained Aryan, and they didnt have too many mixture of other races within their race in history.

The Greek armies of Alexander the Great were an Aryan people,The different regions of ancient Greece were not exactly ethnically homogenous but at least one group, the Ionians, were noted for being blond haired and blue eyed. Alexander's soldiers came from Macedonia and chances are they were rather aryan looking since he himself was. If they left their genes behind with another pocket of Aryan peoples in Afganistan it wouldn't have changed them. A pocket of Indo -European , Aryan people did indeed exist, in a much larger are than they now occupy in Afganistan. There is evidence that attests to them in cave paintings, in mummified graves, and in a written language, Tocharian" which is an Indo European language. It appears that the Indo European peoples may have originated near the caspian sea. While most appear to have gone west, the Tocharians went east yet graves have been found in the western deserts of china with blond mummies wearing tartan cloth that has almost identical patterns to that still made in Keltic countries today. Some of the descendants of these Tocharians also founded the indus cultures. Genetic tests of Indians have shown that the Brahmin class and many of the lighter Indians have European Ancestry. Their "European" ancestry though, has nothing to do with geography, their "European" ancesters probably never spent any time in Europe but instead came from that area of origin near the Caspian.
