Healthy African Boy With Rare Blue Eyes

This blog was just hit with a mad dash of Russians interested in black people and blue eyes. A quick trace of the flurry of hits revealed the picture before you. It is, perhaps, the best example of a black African, non-mulatto, non-albino, with blue eyes. Also, the boy in the picture does not appear to have Waardenberg Syndrome, also a source of blue eyes in blacks. This leaves the strong possibility of a rare mutation of a key eye color gene.



(Note: The stipple drawing of the boy is from a test version of my iPhone app.)

I find this to be utterly beautiful. So many people pay to have such an amazing eye color. I wonder what his social life is like, being so different from the other children - yet pretty much the same.
