NATURAL PHENOMENON OR GENETIC MUTATION??  March 30, 2013 – 02:10 pm
Posted Image Haitian girl with beautiful blue eyes So why are some few black people have "blue eyes' nowadays? The answer according to scientists could only be attributed to genetic mutation or Waardenburg syndrome (WS), which is a rare (1/40, 000) disease characterized by sensorineural deafness in association with pigmentary anomalies and defects of neural-crest-derived tissues. Blue eye African-AmericanHowever, it is also a historical truth the Africans colonized Europe over 10, 000 years ago and they were inf fact the first homo sapiens to cross Europe to Asia and south pacific. Could it also be that some blacks with blue eyes may have gotten blue eyes from their ancient African ancestors and whites that inter-bred during Africa`s colonization of Europe? This question has become more relevant as some few children born of both African/100% black parents possesses "blue eyes."

Zimbabwean boy with blue eyes.The photographer, Vanessa Bristow, called it The Boy with the Sapphire Eyes. Sierra Leone boy with Blue eyes Blue eyes as a Result of Wardenberg SyndromeThere are four types of Waardenburg Syndrome, with a mix of possible characteristics as the determinant. Medical challenges increase with type. The boy in the picture is displaying two major symptoms of type 1, as does the previous boy (perhaps) (); bright blue eyes and dystopia canthorum, a condition where the inner corners of the eyes are set more widely apart, but with normally distanced eyes.Waardenburg occurs once in every 42, 000 births, and is a deficiency inherited from a single parent, who may or may not display similar characteristics. Regarding the eye, color abnormalities come in three forms; heterochromia (multiple colors), bilateral isohypochromia (pale blue eyes), or fundus (reflective) pigmentary alterations (spottiness).

Black girl with blue eyesEveryone with blue eyes can be traced back 10, 000 years to the Black Sea regionThroughout history they have been the eyes that are prized.Frank Sinatra's were legendary, Paul Newman's melted a million hearts while Cameron Diaz's dazzle in modern Hollywood.But how - and why - blue eyes arose has always been something of a genetic mystery. Until now.According to a team of researchers from Copenhagen University, a single mutation which arose as recently as 6-10, 000 years ago was responsible for all the blue-eyed people alive on Earth today.The team, whose research is published in the journal Human Genetics, identified a single mutation in a gene called OCA2, which arose by chance somewhere around the northwest coasts of the Black Sea in one single individual, about 8, 000 years ago.
