That doesn't make any sense. If they can prove genetically that there is 1 ancestor where blue eyes originated, and that gene is recessive, then that 1 person mating with all the brown eyed people in the world would see his mutation vanish after only a few generations. The trait just wouldn't take off.
However if we assume that humanity originated in Europe, and that humans started with these recessive traits and then acquired more dominant traits (such as brown eyes) as they migrated elsewhere, the relatively large population of Europeans with blue eyes makes sense.

Evolution and the big bang are theories also. Black history revisionist? Not to sure where your going with this. Im sure you know that African languages, religions, cultures and history was taken. In my honest opinion you sound pretty insecure in who you are. As for the hair and eyes i will leave that alone because i know the point you wanted to make. Pretty ridiculous but yea.
The big bang theory serously? even hawking doesnt believe that theory anymore and he came up with it so I wouldnt hold it out as a beacon of truth but i get what your saying.

From what my non-American, non-white friends have said, "We usually call them Europeans." This is kinda accurate.
They call white people European and Americans, well, American. If you're from Canada, same as an American but Australians and new Zeleanders get called by their country name.

Sweetie, this thread is much ado about nothing. When I fill out a form I check 'white'. Done. No biggie, no questions, no self exploration, political comments, or questions.
This is a non-issue.
