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.

Exactly! Some people think if you see one you've seen 'em all. The Tajiks and Hazara are the ones that appear Mongolian.

Tajiks are Caucasian, not Mongoloid. Please stop spreading lies. The Tajik people of North Afghanistan (Parwan/Panjshir/Badakshan etc.,)are tall slender with western European features.

And when it comes to Turks, they're a mixture of mongolied and Caucasoid. The Turks of Turkmenistan look very mongolied, But the people in Turkey are a mixture; some are very much mixed with Mongoloid, where others look more European in features.

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

Im sorry they do not look paki or indian. The majority have light skin. Take my best friend for an example. She does have a long nose, thats one thing your right on. she is tall 5'9 with black hair, Light skin (italian light), green eyes and long eyelashes. They owned India long ago so next time read your books first.

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
Yes for afghans in afghanistan it isnt a rare thing to be blonde with fair eyes. the most common afghan look is dark hair, green or dark eyes and fair skin. More of a welsh/italian type. x

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.
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.

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.
