How did the Russians end up white?

So ive been reading a lot of history books lately, mainly over Xenophon, Aristotle, and Alexander the Great.

I recently got a very interesting over the history of Russia, from the beginning of written time to now. Despite how informative this book is, it leaves out one giant detail. Why are the people of Russia white?

The first natives were from china. The south of the USSR (now like 15 different countries) are almost all from Chinese decent.

Nobles from Europe who were white came but they didnīt populate all of Russia. In order to have that large of a population, they must have had a huge number of people from somewhere come during the early years (peter the great is white and he is recognized as the first Tsar of the Russian Empire).

Anyone know (I figured that Spudchucker would know this)

BTW im using the word "white" because russians arenīt caucasian



But isnt it crazy that a people that look almost the same as you and I speak a language that is completely different and have almost no connection with each other (you dont have any russian friends, neither do I)

most of the asian descendants were those living in the steppe lands.. above there, into siberia and the taiga. there were natives.. much like scandanavians.

even though peter the great was the first tsar, russian was around for a long time before that..

when you apply the whole concept of the eurasian triangle.. russians would be in similar climatic and geographic conditions as europeans... so whatever made them white woulda made russians white

russia is the land of harsh winters, not harsh summers. therefore, the people living there dont need to be tan, they need to be white so they can absorb the most vitamin d from the sun when there is so little of it out there

that's my theory anyway

this makes sense in europe mostly.. but not in other regions.. eskimos and inuits live in incredibly frigid and harsh conditions, they're dark skinned. Along with sherpas and those living in the Himalayas

i guess large Russian women look good to the Russian guys, and there is no direct flights from Cape Town to Moscow.

and as to why they are not asian, i'm not sure.

when the serbs, scandinavians, and cossaks moved into russia they pushed all then mongolians to the west and eventually out. in western russia there are still a lot of oriental looking people, as well as in the ****(ier) areas.

eskimos are dark skinned because the sun reflects off the huge amount of ice and snow, and is actually quite powerful as a result. infact, eskimos invented the first sunglasses to help combat the brightness all around them. i assume the same would be the case with sherpas and himalayians

Yes I know this of course but on the cover of my book is peter the great and he is as white as can be so thats why I used him. There were many empires that rose and fell in russia many hundreds of years before peter

They were made white so they could camoflauge in the snow during WWII.

i would use the word "white" because it is the color of their damn skin. i hate how people veer away from black or white.

example: "yeah, these really thin African-Americans over in like Kenya or something were so thin, you could see their bones"
^^ an actual quote from someone i once spoke with.

i hate political-correctness, it is what will ruin our lives.

PC has a purpose, but is often overused.

I call "African Americans" black. Why? Because they are, and also, not every black skinned person is of African descent.

-Andrew, looking back at this statement, realizes that we're all of African descent, unless you believe that there were two instances of human evolution (Asia and Africa).
