    And where is the proof for that claim? On GEDmatch, Kazakhs get them as their second closest population showing there's very little genetic difference between the two. And Kazakhs are easily less than 50% (let alone 60%) "western".

    You seem to be confusing autosomal DNA with chromosomal DNA. Just cause Kyrgyz people have 60% R1a or whatever doesn't mean that their genetic ancestry is mostly western. Your Y-DNA makes up much less than 1% of your genome and has zero influence on your phenotype.

    Genetic classifications are far more credible than pseudoscientific classifications that are always inherently affected by personal bias or human error.

    It should be pointed out though, that while the autosomal DNA may be 50/50, one can still look a lot more than 50% of one ancestry, because the autosomal DNA that determines phenotype, is only a small part of the autosomal DNA. This is why South African Sandra Laing is like, 90% white (or more), yet looks quite black.




    ^^ Sandra Laing and her biological parents. She'd get like at least 90% European on GEDmatch.

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    idk, most of the time ur autosomal reflects ur phenotype, not always in everyone's case.


    for example take Megan bowen, shes 65% subsaharan african, yet i look more black than her.
