Afghans are essentially people of Indian (i.e. Indian Subcontinental), Caucus, Mongolian heritage and others who are a mixture of any combination of those as there is a lot of intermixing.
Most Afghans look 'Indian' though while smaller number who look almost white and others who look Mongolian 'Chinese' look. hey u what r u saying afghans are totally different from indians.i am afghani(pashtun)i know about myself.there r 80 percent whites in us.if THOSE DONOT BELIEVE VISIT TO AFGHANISTAN AND NORTH WESTERN PART OF PAKISTAN.
Stop fabricating and creating false misinterpretation of who Afghans resemble. Unfortunately the caste prejudices are so great in India, that they have to seek in close by nations like Iran and Afghanistan for a commonality, because we resemble southern Europeans. Majority of us look Greek, Spainiard, Italian, and etc. We get confused for these races all the time. We are of the Mediterranean stock, all Iranian groups are Mediterranean. We don't resemble Indians, although some Indians from Kasmir, and northern India resemble Afghan/Iranian Phenotype.

afghan are 100% pure Aryans, cuz Aryana was Afghanistan old name more ten 4000 years ago and the aryans nation live in central afghanistan and north afghanistan more then 12000 years. inrian stolen afghanistan culture because of afghanistan war they just took all thing under iran name , afghanistan has much much older culture than iran ,
Stop making Afghans look like idiots, put that pride shit in your pocket and use your head. The word Afghan has only been signified for Khorasan since 1747 and this is the starting period of Afghan history, so how is Afghanistan history older than 5000 years fool. Your embarrassing, seriously man. Afghan or Eastern Aryans lived interchangeably with western Aryans for thousands of years, sharing a common religion which was Zoroastrianism, cultural norms, and much more. By the way, Durrani who invented Afghanistan was a Persian general under Nader Of Seven Cities, in Persian Nader Shah Hft Shahar. Furthermore, Iranians don't claim anything for themselves, they just are much more accurate and very well educated with open minds. Iranians don't claim figures like Rumi, it's just that Rumi never lived in Afghanistan, he lived in the same region, Khorasan, called Afghanistan 500 years later. Read before talking, forget all bravery Afghan bullshit, it will only mislead you from the truth.

Sorry they spell it like this as will Ariana
Yes and Iran still Carries the term, Iran is a contracted or shrinked word from the term Elm-E-Ariana, or in English meaning the region of Arians or the land of the Aryans / Arians. Arian Aryans have been interchangeably used in historical records.

You can't blame certain young Afghans for acting eradic, they have suffered lots psychologically, especially now that Pakistani's are constantly trying to infiltrate their identity as their own, they speak a Eastern-Persian dialect but their parents tell them that they are Pashtuns, which they don't speak a word of. When they come across real Pashtun people, they feel alienated because they were raised with Persian values. They call their dialect of Persian Dari, but most Afghans will say, "I speak Farsi" or "do you speak Farsi".

Okay, in actuality, the people that say they speak Farsi or Afghan Persian are correct, because again Afghanistan's government in 1940 decided to manipulate their majority of uneducated population by officially instituting inaccuratly Dari as their dialect of Persian; why inaccurate? Because Dari was the mother language of both Iranian and Afghan Persian in its last stage saved from Arab dominanted language that had swept across both lands. Frowdosi, the author of Shah Namah institutionalized modern Persian in the court of then king Ghazeni during the 11th century CE, this was to alternate Arabic back to Persian in Iran and Khorasan area (Afghanistan) as an official regional language. As aforementioned, "Court" of king Ghazeni ment "Daribar" for short Dari, is were new Persian/Farsi was institutionalized.

Afghans are brown but most do not have brown skin. Going by the logic of all the afghans here, East Asians should also be considered white because of their skin color. White is just a broad term to define anyone of European ethnicity.
You cancelled your own statement, Afghans are brown; as an all Afghans are brown. Then, most Afghans don't have brown skin. What logic are you talking about.

Oh another fact, the goddem annoying instruments that were introduced to Kabul Afghanistan from India by the Mugels are not indigenous to the land; namely Hummeria, Tabla, and the Indian Sitter. These instruments are dominanting the countries music now and are suppressing indigenous instruments like Rubab, Zenbarge drum, Khorsani sitter, Dyarah, etc. The Bulbul melodies of Herat were once sang from Balkh to Kabul.
Fact two, why do so many people in Afghanistan wear Pakistani type or style clothes now, this a Punjabi import, Afghan clothes had embroidered designs on shirts, that did not extend to the knees like skirts. They used embroidered vast with a rope for belt in the middle of shirt. The pants were baggy but sloppy baggy like Punjabi clothes. Also, most urban people dressed in suit pants and suit jackets.

Lets stick to Afghans ( Pashtuns, Tajiks, and Tajik-Pashtun mix), Iranians ( Lurs, Bakhtari, Parsi, Non-Turk Azeri), Ossetians, and non-mongol Tajikistani's as Ariana/Aryana people. Polish and Russians are Proto-Europeans like Arians/Aryans but are Slavic.

Traditional Regional Melodies sang for centuries in the Afghanistan region, extending from Mashid to Kabul Khorasan. This is a student singer, singing classical BulBul songs, a type of bird. One can imagine being in the Shah's palace in the 15th century CE Khorasan and listening to this performance with his administration.

I am Afghan and people confuse me for white time to time. I am tall, white skin, black hair, brown eyes and very good looking. Afghans are the purest aryans, we still carry a high percentage of R1a but Iranians don't because Arabs raped their mothers. I see Iranians time to time and most are hairy, short, like Arabs. And Indians are mixed with Dravidians and can't be called pure Aryans but the highest casts probably are but that's a minority. Please don't compare Iranians to Afghans we may have been one group long ago but we are not the same today. Only Afghans and some high caste Indians are pure Aryans the rest are mixed.
