Dark skinned Africans with extraordinary blue eyes

Are stone age hunter-gatherers the key to understanding the phenomenon of Africans with blue eye?

Blue eye occur naturally in African people

As we have seen above, genetic evidence has shown us that anciet stone-age humans living in Europe had darker skin and could also have blue eye. But what about today? Interestingly, geneticists reported in 2008 that all blue-eyed people can trace this trait back to one single ancestor who lived between 8,000 and 10,000 years ago in the north-west regions of the Black Sea. It all arose from a single gene mutation, apparently completely by chance.

Originally, all humans had brown eyes until this single mutation. Unfortunately, many people still believe that the blue-eyed gene only occurs naturally in Europeans, and many people have claimed photos of Africans on social media and on the internet with blue-eyes are fakes. But contrary to this misconception, blue and indeed also green eyes occur naturally in african people and of people with African ancestry, as well as Asian people.

Several reasons for dark skinned people to have blue eyes

Gene mutation is one cause, whilst the other cause is when a person of African heritage has Caucasian relatives on both sides of their family who happen to be carriers of the gene for the blue eye colour. A black couple with brown eyes could have children with naturally blue eye if the gene for blue eye existed within the ancestral line of both parents.

Several black celebrates have blue or green eyes too

Black actresses such as Vanessa Williams has blue eye, and the famous black singer Rihanna has green eyes. Tyra Banks, Terrence Howard and Indian Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai all have green eyes too. Indeed, it is not as rare as people think. Yet unfortunately there is still much ignorance surrounding this, with people believing that Africans with blue eye inherit it entirely from Caucasians. Recent evidence actually suggests it could be well be the other way round!
