Hey,in india and pakistan the only people that look real white are kashmiris.i dont knw about people in pakistan administrated kashmir but the people in indian administrated kashmir are really faird skinned and sharp featured. The best looking people in sub continent is nothing before an average kashmiri.
I am tellin this only bcz i hv been to kashmir many times.

People of Afghanistan are Caucasian. The Caucasian human subgroup originated in the Caucasus region and spread east,west, north and south. The majority of people inside Afghanistan have fair skin, and light colored eyes. Since the majority of the people of Afghanistan had to live under harsh situations because of war, poverty, and climate, they haven't taken very good care of their outer appearances when it comes the harsh winter cold and hot southern climate. But despite that, you can clearly see many shiny blue or green eyes with sun damaged skin if you go to Afghanistan. Afghanistan is not a fully south Asian nation; the only people who look south Asian are those who came from Indian and decided to make Afghanistan their home. But the people from Afghanistan who live in the west, you cannot tell if they're from Afghanistan if you see them on the street because most have taken good care of their outer appearances, and look European, without any facial surgery( unlike Iranians). So according to outer appearance facts, and DNA test conducted to determine the 'race'of the people of Afghanistan, the majority are Caucasian.
afghans arent caucasian. they are central asian. no matter how light eyes they have they r still central asian. we r not european. so i have light eyes, light skin and dark hair but if you say only the ones with fair skin are caucasian all of us are. xoxo

You wish afghans looked indian. indians are black. the majority of afghans are not black. sorry to burst your bubble. we ruled over your country years and years ago which is why some very lucky north indians look 2 percent indian so you wish.
We are no we're Indian so don't ever say that but we do have the same religion only Islam

I've never seen a white afghan, they're usually brightly colored or patterned and have a really open choose one so they're not as warm as a blanket. If by Turks meat turkeys, modern day ranched turkeys are generally all white, but that's just their feathers. The Turkey's themselves are a mix of white meat and dark meat, as usual. I hope that answers your question![grins]

This really depends on which type of afghan you are talking about.
Tgrre are three main types of afghans: pashtuns (me) blonde hair blue eyes fair skin, tajiks: black/brown hair iranian skin colour and hazaras : chinky eyed people who are descendants of the conquerer ghengis khan who was brought down to his knees in Afghanistan by the pashtuns. Afghan name was originally a name for the pashtuns but the previous king of Afghanistan wanted to unite its people under one banner so he decided to call the country Afghanistan.
Afghanistan means: land of the afghans in other words land of the pashtuns who are the only pure aryan race alive til today.

Afghans DO NOT LOOK indian! Who thinks that? They are generally light skinned and looks persian/ greek etc. I went to kabul myself and can judge from what ive seen- they have blue,green, grey eyes even blonde hair which looks as if their european.

Just an information for ignorant afghans. Green or blue eyes or lightcolored hair is not a rarity in Pakistan. Pakistan is like Afghanistan a melting pot of all sorts of ethnicities, Especially in Northern Pakistan(Hunza, Chitral) and western Pakistan(KPK, FATA andBaluchistan) you see many people that are lightskinned and have blond, brown or red hair. Green and blue eyes are also more common in these areas.
Just a question. Do you guys really believe that fair color, greenor blue eyes or blond or brown hair makes you superior to people who are brown with black hair ???
I really don´t hope that you are that stupid!

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.
Now your definitely trolling.

Keep in mind when people talk about Afghans they are talking about Pashtuns. We definitely do not look Indian as we are different from them. The reason why majority of us look white is because we are Aryans!

It is not your brethren the higher caste Indians that divide you both, that is Paki's and Indians, it is your own doing that Parthian-Persian/Bactrian-Pers ians can't stand about you. You are the lower caste Indian who took opportunity when the British give to you land for being good servants. By majority, you are deceitful, low, unmanageable, and insane.

1/3 from Turkish people are in fact Caucasians including:
circassians, chechens, Abkhazians, muslim Georgians, laz and dagestanians (mainly avars, lezgins and dargins).
in 1864 the Caucasian war ended, many Caucasians were expelled to turkey to such extent that nowdays they are 1/3 of Turkish population.
even before that the upper class of turkey mainly: sultans,beks,pasha, zaada and rich merchants (tituls of Turkish nobility like knyaz boyar kupetz graph) preferred to marry girls from Caucasus.
its important to say the real Caucasians are all with white pail and light eyes take kadirov as an example.
In conclusion centuries of intermixing with Caucasians before 1864+
1864 exile were the main reason that 1/3 of Turkish population are Caucasians and nowdays there is new turks turkocaucasian.
that's why many turks have blue eyes.
if you want to see real, unmixed turks go to Turkmenistan, the original turks came from Asian steppe.
