  1. I never knew somany black people had such light and pretty eyes! I can't believe it. Vanessa has blue eyes? Is she mixed? All these people must be mixed. (Even though I'm not, and I have hazel eyes.)

    5. Both of vanessa parents are african american. she appeared on tv show called "who do you think you are?" to trace her family ancestors. she has very mixed ancestry, now wonder she is very beautiful. blue eyed gene is recessive, so even though none of her parents are blue eyed, one of them might carry blue eyed gene from their great grandparents and pass it down to vanessa.

  2. These people are not racially black. They all have varying degrees of mixed ancestry. I'm not sure if black people is the correct term to use in describing them. They do all have some African ancestry but not completely.

  4. 1) You are all pathetic. Having light-colored eyes doesn't automatically make them pretty.

    2) Not all of these people are mixed. How can you be that stupid in 2013? Ignorant as hell, especially the person saying they aren't mixed but these people must be.

    3) There are people with light eyes ALL AROUND THE GLOBE, blond hair, red hair, ANY physical feature can be expressed in ANY race! Read a damn book. Hell, there are PURE-BLOODED Africans who are dark as night and have the palest blue eyes you could ever see. Do any of you ever leave the computer screen?

    1. You made my day. You would think people should know better in this day and age. There is an African tribe with predominantly red hair. There are black pure blooded Africans with different eye colors (common in Caucasians ). Even though many of the listed stars are of mixed ethnicity, eye or hair color is not limited to a particular race abeit some traits are more common with some races. In England, an African couple gave birth to a child with predominantly Caucasian traits. Genetics is a vast horizon that gives room sometimes for rare and random outcomes. People should read up

    3. That's actually not true. Blue eyes are a genetic mutation that occurred in Europe about 10,000 years ago. You will not find sub Saharan Africans with that eye color. Black Americans have those eye colors because of White ancestry, most likely due to slavery.

    4. I suppose you left your computer screen to go see these pale blue eyes Africans?
      Keep in mind, with that colour...it is likely they too have a great grandsomething who banged a white man. Stop correcting people with your self-righteous smartitude...
      I'm an African...in Africa...and I've yet to meet a black person with eyes other than brown or light brown or dark brown (light brown eyes are apparently the "hazel" people are referring to...)

    5. Your are correct. The general consensus is that blue eyes are a genetic mutation that occurred around 10,000 years ago, a response that occurred as a result of what. Suppose the gene was already there in the people who migrated there - Black People, and mutated due to surrounding circumstances and the need for less melanin. It is found that although blue eyes do not occur frequently in Black People due to high melanin production as protection from the sun, it does pop up in Black People here and there along with blonde hair. No mixture to mention of just the human race, with black people adapting to there environment, sometimes mutating out of character, as need be and an instinctive recessive gene ready to respond and already in tact if the need should arise. If people would only look to the source and not overlook the source which science seems to be selective about very often, many mysteries would not be so mysterious.

    7. hi, I am a mixed Afrcan-American. I have lived for 3 years in Afrika. I have seen many people who were black as midnight with red, and blonde hair. I have met some with blue, green and amber eyes. I met one person who's eyes were actually orange. Not all had kinky hair. I met a family with the blackest of skin,and bone straight hair. Dear white people, like it or not all of us have Afrikaan genes. It has been proven over and over again humans began in Afrka

  5. Multi-colored eyes are not indigenous to the black race, therefore there has to be European mix down the line. I'm sure I will be verbally attack for making that statement, but no matter, b/c it's just a fact.

    2. Correction. There is no Black Race. However there is the Human Race. There are Black People with blue eyes and blonde hair due to mutations with no mixture at all which apparently means a response we inherited from Black People; those from which all of us came and from where the Human Race began.

    3. What nonsense! The fact that a creature emerged,. walking upright barely out of walking on all fours, out of Africa doesn't make him a "Black Person" He would probably be identified as Big Foot or Small Foot or whatever were he to be seen today.

    4. And so your problem? I gather by your response that the human race does not begin with Black People in Africa? Maybe from Big Foot or perhaps Four Foot? I will wait for your answer and then I will reply "nonsense".

  6. These people are mixed. Why do you keep saying everyone is wrong? Most of these people aren't black at all and I'm willing to bet that a few are probably not even half black. Non-mixed Black Africans that have light eyes have them because of a rare genetic mutation and it is extremely unlikely.

    1. You don't make sense "unknown" having light eyes is a gentic mutation and black people are the only people that you can take two of and get a very pale skin blue eyed child. You obviously aren't as educated as you'd like to think you are." Black" people are of many variations, which is why in history we were considered colored. Open a book.

    2. maybe you should open a book too . most african americans have white acnestry . it's a fact . go take a DNA test and see the results for yourself.

      ever wondered why the average african americans looks lighter than the average west african ? i'm pretty sure mixing with whites had nothing to do it ....oh wait .

  7. Black people, whether they appear mixed or not, can have light eyes because they have a white family member somewhere in the past. Light eyes are recessive with brown eyes being dominant. It's not some mutation, it's just the recessive gene coming out like with Gingers/red heads. Also, if you had a drop of African blood back in the day (slavery era) you were black. You're still black. Why do you think so many black kids that look white get into college? Put black on the resume! That simple. Two of my friends did it. One's Haitian/white, the other is Jamaican/Indian.

  8. All of you are wrong. Black people are the first to walk around on this planet. You have all kinds of black people with different kind of colored eyes and hair. Ever heard of the black blonds from the salomon islands? It all begins with black, white people are a mutation of blacks not the other way around. Black is simpley all colors combine. There are black people with all haircolors and all eyecolors, logical cause they are the beggining of all races. You can see the evolution from blacks turning in to other races all over the world. If you would make the trip from Afrika that the first blacks made ,you would find all sorts of black people inbetween with all sorts of features. Cause everything came from the black men. Black people gave white people there eye color and haircolor. There were blond and blue eyed black people, long before there were white people. Whites came from blacks.

    2. Black is NOT all colours combined. And no, I haven't seen any Africans who look like Swedes and neither has anyone else.There are of course many Berbers in North Africa who have green eyes and light brown or even"dirty" blond hair, but Berbers are not Black especially the Rif, Kabyle and Shawia Berbers.

      It used to be thought that modern humans evolved out of a creature coming out of Africa into Negroid, Caucasoid and Mongoloid human beings. Now it has been ascertained that everyone who moved out of Africa has up to 6% Neanderthal and Denisovan DNA (Neanderthals had a larger brain than humans) Now DNA has been extracted and analysed from the bones of a human who lived 400,000 years ago near Burgos in Spain. And it seems that evolution theory will be modified once again

      As regards the above, quite a few of them have White mothers or fathers eg Leona Lewis, David James, Antonia Thomas etc. The rest of them have somewhat European features.

    3. Can you give the source or provide the link to the discovery mentioned above in your response?; I really don't see it weighing in much on anything anyhow. But nonetheless, it will be interesting to see what conclusions they come to regarding this although I doubt that anything will be rewritten as a result. Also in response to Neanderthal, these DNA claims are founded on what? Have they really been able to extract any Neanderthal DNA to back these claims? Perhaps Neanderthal is the Big Foot or Small Foot you refer to in an earlier post since he too is thought to have emerged sometime out of Africa as well. This should be interesting.

  9. LOL Felicia Winter, you defend blacks as if someone is attacking them and at the same time you say: "You can see the evolution from blacks turning in to other races all over the world." what can be considered racist.

  10. Nerman is probably the only one that felt like Felicia was defending black people. He feels the need to make a comment on that instead of the actual argument of blog post. Let's all educate ourselves, then comeback to this blog to review what we've learned. There are few people on here with key points.

  11. Felicia Winter, read Wiki article about Blue eyes. This eye color does not come from black people. It was mutation that emerged aroud 10.000 b.c near Black Sea region in Europe. This gene is _much_ younger than our exodus from Africa, so black people DID NOT give us blue/grey eyes, becouse it was much younger mutation.

    People, please, read articles about genetics of eye color, and dont say "every color" comes from black, becouse it is not true. Simple as that.
    It is however true that African American black people have some percent of white ancestry, so they can have lighter eyes that pure African blacks.

Conduct a more academic and in-depth research on this topic and tell us why there are full blooded Africans with blond or red hair, why there is an Asian tribe with predominantly red hair, why there are Africans with eye colors supposedly peculiar to Caucasians.

  13. There will always be people who will try to make you feel less than for various reasons. I have had varying reactions with people at one point or another in my life in regards to my hazel eyes. Most of them have been positive but a few "haters" are always present doing what they do best, which is hate (lol). The debate about who is more "black" or less "black" is utterly pointless. Even more pointless is this notion about having white ancestry as if it is a bad thing and somehow that alone disqualifies a person from being black. I myself am eternally thankful to ALL those that have come before me that have been instrumental in giving me the chance at life, hazel eyes and all. The reality is that NONE of us control how we get here so it matters not. Look but don't stare. :-)

    1. I don't really understand your disbelief. Considering how many black celebrities there are in the world, it is possible that this list of 20ish people actually have light colored eyes. I'm sure some of the photos are touched up which would enhance the coloring in the photo itself and by default their eyes might seem more vibrant. But if anything, this would change the shade or their eyes, not the color.

    2. I don't believe your statement. I have seen a black man lllight skin with hazel eyes and he was sexy. so I believe that is a false statement

  16. Permanently embedded colored contact lenses were made available way back in the 1980s for the rich, i.e., movie stars, etc. There are several less expensive, more recent methods of permanently changing iris color. There were also methods way back in the 1980s for permanently straightening even tightly curled, woolly or frizzy hair.

    I tend to agree with the comments about black people with blue eyes being a genetic defect as I saw a black man just yesterday who appeared to have them but he also had a peculiar facial defect wherein his eyes were at odd angles.

    As for the generally lighter skin color of American Blacks to many West Africans, this is predominately the result of the active properties of DNA in response to the differences in climate experienced in many parts of America to those of West Africa.

    For instance, centuries of ancestry in West Africa where there is intense radiation from the sun year round necessitates dark skin pigmentation for survival as we understand too much sun can cause skin cancers. Whereas in America subtropical temperatures are reached only one fourth of the year, during summer season. Therefore after centuries in the temperate climes of America one has lesser need for much pigmentation and a greater need for its absence to compensate for the body's reduced Vitamin D production as a result of the decreased exposure to the sun's radiation.

    1. I should also mention that many digital cameras change light colored eyes to a very pretty light blue color in the photographs they produce by default. My personal experience with this feature were with inexpensive Kodak digital cameras.

    2. What? This actually makes no sense. Black Americans have lighter skin and lighter features due to mixing with White Americans, either through marriage or during slavery. All of these comments seem to completely overlook the basics of genetics (recessive v.s. dominant genes) & history (most Black people are mixed).

      Delete
    3. If anyone believes that silly comment up there, then that would mean white people would grow NATURALLY (meaning no suntans) darker. Because Native Americans have been here longer than anybody and white people saw them as darker and redder than they are. Plz disregard the ignorant comment up there and remember black people's history with whites. There weren't a lot of blacks in Haiti who were freely mixed with white, hence their darker color. BUT Dominicans are literally next to them and they are clearly very mixed with Spaniards. Within a time frame of shorter than 1000 yrs (way, way shorter), it has to do with genetics. Not environment and climate.

  17. What about Lee Thompson Young his eyes are hazel!

  18. Eye color is not a function of skin color, any person, can have any color eyes. Eye color is due to a lack of pigment in varying degrees in the iris. Humans have 2 types of pigment mainly, eumelanin and phenomelanin, the proponderous of human pigment is eumelanin, individuals who have red hair or freckles produce large amounts of phenomelanin, we all have the same number roughly of melanocyte (cells) that produce pigment, individuals who have darker skin produce more of it. The tendency as to why you see individuals with lighter skin having being more likely to have lighter eyes is because they tend to carry the mutations that produce less pigment all together.

    Actually, up until about 10,000 years ago, pretty much all humans had brown eyes, we can trace the mutation to a 1 person basically that had blue eyes, it's also same mutation that causes albinoism a complete lack of ability to produce any pigment. But to answer the question eye color has no genetic disposition (it doesn't) protect you from the sun, you don't need to lighten to synthesize vitamin D, etc ... it's pure chance. And any human being regardless of their skin color or apparent heritage can have any color eyes. Our racial constructs of "black" and "white" mean nothing on the genetic level. You don't have to mix "white" to get "blue eyes" , you don't have to mix "black" to get dark eyes, etc ... that's not how it works genetically at all.

    You seem to be intentionally contradictive.

    I haven't commented on any particular eye color other than blue.

    The two paragraphs, wherein I commented on skin color, did not mention eye color and they are in response to apparent observations made by fellow poster, "kameda" in comments regarding skin color differences of West Africans and so-called African Americans.

    As to the question of whether genetic adaptation for the body's synthesis of Vitamin D in climates with limited sunlight occurs, read the following paragraph taken from Human Molecular Genetics, Oxford University Press (http://hmg.oxfordjournals.org/content/16/R2/R134.full):

    Skin colour is strongly geographically differentiated, with darker-skinned populations concentrated in the tropics, and lighter-skinned populations in more northerly latitudes. In tropical climates the melanin in dark skins protects against sunburn by scattering and absorbing UV radiation; it may also limit photodegradation of nutrients such as folate. Where sunlight is low, depigmentation may be favoured because UV penetration is necessary for vitamin D synthesis.

    Incidentally, I may begin using a different moniker in the very near future on these blogs because of some apparent issues with my present one, but when you mentioned "proponderous", which is not a word, perhaps you meant preponderance.

      Kameda, I addressed the issue you refer to in my previous posts.

      You, as do many, seem to assume that all Africans who came to America as slaves were West Africans. Actually, West Africa simply provided the main coastal port cities through which people from many parts of Africa sailed to America.

      Many were deceived into thinking there was good to be found for them in America and they went freely. Many others were actually P.O.W.s or prisoners of war, captured by rivalling tribes.

      That picture of Cory Bookers doesn't show that his eyes are blue, as you seem to infer they are.

      Incidentally, you may have noticed lately that many so-called ancestry websites, family tree maker sites and websites for genealogical research have been offering "DNA" testing to help people determine their ethnic make-up, using celebrities as test subjects to promote their services. All would be wise not to trust the results of these scams. They are akin to the offerings provided by the George Lopez Show (Lopez Tonight) through some sponsoring company. They provide you with results based on your wishes or expectations, often infused with a mingling of their own desires for you. They are quite reminiscent of the craze of psychics, palmists, tarot card, and tea leaf readers of the 1990s who used erstwhile celebrities to promote their scams.

      I regard Henry Louis Gates, Jr. as a charlatan. Besides his questionable "orientation" it seems he has a queer way of gathering dubious information which he then publicizes as if it is factual.

      To see what I mean, you should watch the documentary which aired on PBS about him as he collected data for his recent book of fiction, "Encyclopedia Africana".

    4. One of the "alien races" in an episode of "Star Trek: Enterprise" called Caucasians "pink skins." Well, I'm one of those "pink skins." Our father had blue eyes. Our mother had brown eyes. All of their children have brown eyes, but we all have the recessive "blue" eye gene, too. My youngest sister married a man with blue eyes, and both of their children have blue eyes. Now, that is against the laws of genetics. The dominant brown eye gene is supposed to be, well, dominant. So, my niece and nephew are mutants. Ha! We're all mutants, or mutts. My mom used to say she wasn't sure how much "black" blood we had in us, but she was sure there was some.

    3. Instead of formulating an argument I feel it would be better if I just listed some facts. And I'm not saying that some of these things don't have rare exceptions.
      1.) People with blue eyes have a single common ancestor.
      2.) This person was white, and everybody in the world that has blue eyes has this white person in their ancestry.
      3.) It's called the OCA2 gene, look it up
      4.) North africans are generally much lighter, some are dark, but the general features of north africans are different from other africans.
      5.) This is the same everywhere, western europeans and eastern eurpoeans have different general traits, same with southern asians and northwestern asians.
      6.) The blonde africans of the solomon islands have been linked to a single genetic mutation, and other cases like this probably have similar stories.

    4. See these folks here are swearing up and down that black folks who are light skinned or have light eyes do not have white ancestors but listen to this:
      Ok, so u am fully white (and might I say I Did Not originally come from a black person), I have dark blonde hair and light blue eyes. My boyfriend is fully black, meaning his mother is black and his father and everyone of his brothers are black just like him. So last year we had a baby he's now 1 and he looks completely white, meaning he had white skin not pale like a mixed child (I have an 8 year old who is biracial as well and he has curly mixed hair and light skin like a typical mixed child), he had light blue eyes and blonde hair. You would not believe that he is biracial and neither did his father. But I did give him a DNA test and he is 99.9% his father. So we look into it and now find out that far down the line his ancestors were white, but this gene did not show up until now with our child.
      We actually went on a television show and the host had to give him the run down of ancestry and genes and how most traits and genes do not show up until far down the line just because all his other children are black (and mind you the host, she is a black lady).

  23. To add, apparently not all blue eyes comes from this ancestor. Sometimes there's adaption, sometimes mutation - which is an inherent response of the Human Race leading to adaptation. Black People in Africa and elsewhere with blue eyes seem to have had an inherent mutation response that is passed on to the rest of Humanity that seems to have come from the depths of the human genome and appears not to have any relation with that of this ancestor. It perhaps could now be said therefore that there is a dormant mutation response found in Black People that could explain blue eyes found in our entire race, although more frequently in those with less melanin. I wonder if the study at the time this ancestor was discovered extended to include Africa which is the source of the Human Race, the Human genome and therefore the richest in Human diversity. Africa probably explains more mysteries of our civilization and the Human Race than most people would ever want to think or give credence to. I do not believe in race and do not see that there are different races.

My grandmother's eye were mostly blue, nut my father's eyes are mostly brown, my etes sre now turning blue as well, i like my father wasn't born like this but they are changing. I went to my eye doctor and ask him about it because i feared that it was cateracts, but luckly he told me that it wasn't: the doctor was shocked to kbow that others eyes wete the same in my family. I would like to say that i've seen really dark, also black in color, African. Americans with blue eyes as well,i don't know what makes this happen, but it's could be a firm of evolution, if you are nit a doctor or god, don't judge or try to explain the unexplainable.

    Here's the thing, a lot of you seem to be very convinced that what you have to say is the truth and everyone else is stupid for not being aware of the facts. Yet, for all of these "facts" no one has yet to provide evidence on the subject. Where are the studies to support your conclusions? How did you acquire this information? FOX news? I won't claim to be an expert but since some of you are ignorant of the facts, here's a link to a lecture by a geneticist and anthropologist who IS an expert. She gives several forms of genetic evidence to prove that modern humans all originated in Africa, and also provides evidence that Africans are actually the most genetically diverse of any race on the planet. It's quite a fascinating lecture. Her evidence is corroborated by years of data and other peoples findings.
    It is not only possible but a fact that Africans can have light eyes without being mixed with other races. It is also possible that a similar genetic mutation to produce blue eyes happened in multiple parts of the world over thousands of years. So while blue eyes may have been a genetic mutation with European people thousands of years ago, it was also a genetic mutation in a group of black people in Africa.
    TL;DR yes pure blood Africans can have light eyes without having mixed with another race, and no, just because you've never seen a blue eyed, red haired, black skinned african - even if you LIVE in Africa - doesn't mean they don't exist. Africa is a big fucking continent.

    3. And whilee these things you say may be true, the celebrities in these pictures and most"African Americans" nowadays that have these light eyes or light colored skin and hair they DO have Caucasians in their family or bloodline somewhere

    1. @ Brittany Matthews

      See the posts by 'Anoneemus Practitioner' and 'Anan E Mus'. The findings you state in the last two paragraphs of your post, echoes the posts made by a few others.

      I didn't watch much of the videos you linked because I was put off by the title he gave his oration. Human evolution and the nature of science, seem to me, two entirely different subjects. Furthermore, I can't see the correlation of paleontology and eye color.

      PS "This comment has been removed by the author" indicates an almost unavoidable condition of accidental double posting by me when I use these slow, and poorly optimized BBs.

  29. I'm glad this person knows the difference between actual hazel eyes which are a light honey brown and eyes that are green with brown around the pupil. Most north americans are ignorant as to what hazel eyes actually are and think that hazel eyes are green and brown or any multi coloured eye

  31. Dude there are Africans...in the Solomon Islands...born with blond hair...and blue eyes look it...it's simple long line of genetics...and different mutations that play into effect..that's all

  32. I'm from pretoria south Africa and pure black but light skin with baby blue eyes! My grandma and her sis have sky blue eyes. So yes Africans do have eyes of color without any white blood in their vains. I even mesmerized a group of Israel tourist @ da mall. One of them said And I quoute:'and we actually thought we are the most blue in the world Lol"

  33. It doesn't matter about the skin tones are their ancestry. We are all God's children. My daughters father had hazel eyes. She has blue eyes. My eyes are green. And I am Caucasian. I love people in general.

  34. I just wanted to say that the combination of light-colored eyes with dark skin is so striking! :) It's always nice to see pictures that exploded our idea of what people of certain ethnicities "should" look like.

  35. I read a lot of the comments on here and I just don't understand other people's perspectives. Everybody knows that blond hair, blue eyes, and pale skin are all mutations. I do believe in an out-of-Africa theory, but when it comes to Europeans and Asians being so different, I'm not even sure anymore. But blond hair and blue eyes are mutations that happened specifically in EUROPE. I am black and I believe blond hair and blue eyes are essentially white people's traits. If there is any black wo/man that has these traits, they are either mixed somewhere down their lineage OR those traits are mutations strictly related to their ethnicity and area. No one can say that all black people have the trait of blond hair and blue eyes because the mutation does not exist in their DNA. Unless they come from an ethnicity of black people or have white ancestry who carry that mutated DNA, they cannot be blond or have blue eyes. Again there are exceptions to this rule because mutations are very rare and many people who have mutated genes may also be sick with some rare disease, and therefore may die earlier than others. These people do not belong to ethnicities with those genes nor do they have white ancestry, but they have a mutation which does not belong to either of the parents but is an act of nature. That's all mutations are, acts of nature. They are random and there needs to be multiple people with this mutated gene in order to produce a new generation of people with that specific gene. So plainly put, blacks in and of themselves cannot have blue eyes and blond hair unless they have a mutation or if they have white ancestry. That's just what I believe and if any of you think otherwise, that's fine by me. I'm just stating theories and opinion. And so is everybody else it seems. P.S. if you cite an unreliable resource such as Wikipedia, plz cite it right. It does not have an article on blue eyes per se, it's on an eye color page. And secondly, it said 6,000-10,000 YEARS AGO. Not 10,000 B.C.

  36. We r all mutations in various forms that started off as what..... anyone?..... Africans!..... straight hair... mutation.... blue eyes..... mutation..... "white skin"..... mutation...... essentially white people r a further "mutation" of the original mode.... they needed less of somethings good and bad.... thats y white people dont have that extra muscle in their leg...... we r all mutations and brothers and sisters......
