Who is Sharbat?
Do you remember Sharbat Gula (see picture)? She’s the Afghan girl who became somewhat famous as the poster child of the Soviet 1984 occupation of Afghanistan. When this picture
was published in 1984, most people were mesmerized by her beautiful eyes and never stopped to give a second thought as to exactly what they were looking at. Her face is angular (a Nordic skull) and her eyes are light-colored. In short, she’s Caucasian.
Yes, Caucasian and, yes, she has dark skin. This is the result of thousands of years of inter-racial mixing of the species. Besides, Caucasians today should be defined primarily by their skull type, and not by their skin color which can range from white to brown.
Caucasians are said to have originated in the Caucasus Mountains north of Turkey and today live in such diverse places as the western part of China, eastern Asia, the Middle East, Europe and, of course, North America; and let’s not forget North Africa either. Here’s a photo album of Caucasians from around the world:
Yes, these kids are all Caucasian and you couldn’t tell them apart from many American kids, other than perhaps by their clothing. By the way, they have some rather noteworthy ancestors including King David (of the Bible) and the Egyptian boy pharaoh King Tut whom genetic tests show is also related to the first blue-eyed person; even U.S. President Barack Obama has common ancestors with these kids!
The only question now is whether or not the world will be told the truth about the origins of Caucasians. Personally, I would bet against. Francis Crick knew, though.
“History is a pack of lies we play on the dead.”
P.S. Voltaire got it half right, anyway, inasmuch as history is also a pack of lies that we tell to the living. We wouldn’t want them to know the truth, now would we?
