  •  "Race is farcity"-Albert Einstein (8+ / 0-)

    If you go back far enough, you can make connections between all mankind. There is no such isolated pure race in the world today other than in our minds.

    Turks, for example, are a highly mixed ethnicity. Among all, Chechens, Turks, Israelis and whatnot, you will find great diversity, some being "pasty white" while others more on the brown side.

    Finns, for example, have a history of Turkic migrations settling in the area. And Turks have Polish immigrants (long ago) that have mixed with them. There is also a history of Turkish Gaul mixing in Anatolia (historical fact) going back to a few thousand years.

    That is because of the mixed nature of human groups going back to millions of years.

    So, I will be careful when claiming clean cut separations among the "races" of the mankind. There is none.
