Someone Asked Why I Haven’t Reported On the NSM 40th Anniversary So OK Fine Here It Is…

Nazis & Crap

So, I got an email from a friend asking if I 1) knew about the NSM 40th anniversary and 2) if I was going to report on it. Originally, I said “yes, I knew” and “no, I wasn’t going to write about it because I don’t want to give them free press.”

Seriously, there’s really nothing to report. I don’t care about them. They are stupid and irrelevant. They aren’t a threat to anyone but themselves. I’ve already written about how stupid these events are and why they are done ($$ and to feed the ego of an sycophant). I no longer wish to waste bandwidth or beat a dead horse. (I like horses… and bandwidth.) Besides, do they even still exist and why would any of my readers care? What do I care if idiots who barely got out of high school with no authority get their jollies by running around in not so authentic NS uniforms getting drunk and sodomizing each other? Besides, the fact that they wear uniforms alerts us to who they are so we can avoid them. I am much more concerned about educated socialists and fascists wearing a suit and tie who are personable and can actually win an election.

Anyway, my friend kept bugging me so here it is… Happy now lol?

The Event

So, the NSM aka National Socialist Movement aka “Federal agents who dress as Nazis to lure out crazy people” had another stupid little rally for Hitler’s birthday and their 40th anniversary of being irrelevant back in April. They had maybe 15 people. They were outnumbered by hundreds of people who had nothing better to do.

The event went on without incident.

I don’t care. YAWN. Really, it’s better to not even go. If you want to read about it, go to this link:

NY Daily News

I could only find one mainstream news article on this… mostly because I don’t link to “movement” sites and I really didn’t care enough to look further. I’m sure you can find stupid crap on YouTube claiming this was a huge dramatic event etc etc.

My Favorite Quotes From This Event

“What we’re now going to see is the dance of a thousand steps between the NSM and various anti-racists who would like to find the NSM members and beat them up,” said the Mayor of Chattanooga.

“My gosh, I would be embarrassed to have that number at a spaghetti dinner benefit,” a Knoxville attorney hollered at the group as they emerged. “That’s so sad. … You’re looking sad, master race.”

“Is that all the people you brought? That’s sad, I was at a Comic Con last week and it had twice your numbers.”

Lesson of the Day

The NSM and several similar groups are provocateur organizations by their very nature. The members are either 1) agents of a government or counter-political group or 2) stupid enough to fall for a cult-like leader. And, the “anti-racist” groups are basically the same. Both use violence to achieve their means. The NSM likes to portray themselves as victims and lets the anti-racists act violently first so they can claim self-defense. It’s really a stupid waste of time to even give these groups a public forum to play out their totalitarian Nazi vs Communist fantasies.

Why does the ARA still give these guys the time of day? Don’t you realize that the NSM and ARA are part of a symbiotic circle where you feed off each other for narcissistic supply? You’re both idiots. Go back to your mom’s basement, smoke some pot, and do something constructive like play Dungeons & Dragons.

Folks, these people don’t exist unless they have opposition! Don’t feed their narcissistic supply. This is really dumb. The general public should just ignore the public rallies while the government and watchdog groups watch over them. the only reason I caved and actually wrote this is so that the general public would see that groups like this are not scary or important in any way, shape, or form. They are pathetic. If there is a threat from this event to American Jews today, it’s the Marxist Anti-Fascists. The only real difference between a Jew killed by a Nazi and a Jew killed by Communists the uniform of the murderer. Both sides are anti-liberty.

Glenn Miller… WN Dumbass of the Month

If It Weren’t Tragic, It Would Be Laughable

Recently, there was a shooting at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas. It was done by a lifetime Klanner trailer trash scumbag WN loser named Glenn Miller, who is truly a dumbass. In fact, I think I will declare Glenn Miller WN Dumbass of the Month.

Glenn Miller went to the JCC to kill Jews. My guess is it was in honor of Adolf Hitler’s birthday on April 20. He probably thought he was going to go down in a blaze of glory for his race and nation. Instead, he murdered three WHITE CHRISTIANS in cold blood. So, essentially, this idiot killed the people who he claims to protect. Maybe he is senile. Or, maybe a bad shot.

White Nationalist Mentality & Their Spin

It appears that Mr Miller has not learned the lessons of the “14 words.” You know, all that jazz about preserving the white race to provide a future for white children? This dumbass shot a white child. So, this is the way you end you WN career, Glenn? Is this the proverbial icing on the cake – the cherry on top? Is this what you worked so hard to accomplish?

Remember now, Mr Miller thinks that he is part of a “Master Race.” But as we know, this “Master Race” that he is part of does things like shoot White children, rape and abuse White women, and can’t even put in running water in Leith, ND. I am so glad that I am not part of this “Master Race.”

I would have paid money to see the look on Miller’s face when he found out that NONE of his victims were Jews. But, I know EXACTLY what he’d say. Now, to a normal person, this will make no sense. However, it is perfectly fine in the White Nationalist world.

Let me explain…

The mentality of the WN male, as predictable as it is, will probably spin this to Miller’s advantage. In the WN world, they are always good and the rest of the world is always evil and out to get them. They will say that those three WHITE CHRISTIANS were “race traitors” who deserved to die because they were at a JCC. The penalty for race treason is death so this freak will probably be a martyr for WN freaks and dumbasses everywhere.

They WILL find a way to blame the Jews. Watch over the next few weeks.

Jews, Be Safe

So, where do we go from here? This week, we celebrate Passover. We remember our freedom and come together as a people. In a few weeks, it will be Yom HaShoah. Fellow American Jews, I love you dearly and want you to be safe. You need to wake up. America is not as safe as you think it is. Lesson learned is that Jews need to get conceal carry permits or at least have the ability to defend themselves.

Never again.

Leith Update: Could It Get Any More Hysterical?

I have been closely watching the Leith, ND case since a little birdie told me that the NSM was given the property. I mean, really, how stupid are these white nationalists?? They get free land and screw up their silly little “White Homeland” “Pioneer Little Europe” merely by being themselves.

I admit, I laughed when Craig Cobb willingly took a DNA test on television and learned he has black heritage.

LOL, kind of like this guy:

 

 

Then, Cobb and his dumbass little buddy walk around town – WITH GUNS – harassing people.

HARRASSING. FELLOW. WHITE. PEOPLE.

AND THEN PUT IT ON YOUTUBE FOR ALL OF LAW ENFORCEMENT TO SEE!!

Speaking of YouTube, you can also watch Cobb make a drunken ass out of himself at a town hall meeting.

Piece of advice: Use your brain for something other than soaking up alcohol.

This is the “master race?” You’d think the “master race” would have things like running water and indoor plumbing.

Now, an unnamed, non-white nationalist third party has purchased Cobb’s land, Cobb and pal are in jail, and the people of Leith can return to their lives without worrying about a bunch of wack jobs messing with their lives.

I’d say that’s a happy ending for our friends in Leith.

(Didn’t I give them 6 months?)

Racism & Narcissistic Personality Disorder : Potential Topic

I am finding many articles that describe racism as a symptom of narcissistic personality disorder. One really good one is called Racism: A Symptom of Narcissistic Personality Disorder by Carl C Bell in the Journal of The National Medical Association July, 1980 issue. Expect a new blog post soon… This one will take a while. I am also looking into the mentality of the Marxist violent antifa…

Eugenics Is the Rea$on for Planned Parenthood

The graphic’s date appears wrong, it is credited to her work in Birth Control Review, April 1933: http://www.ewtn.com/library/prolenc/encyc068.htm – and elsewhere:

[Slavs, Latin, and Hebrew immigrants are] human weeds … a deadweight of human waste … [Blacks, soldiers, and Jews are a] menace to the race… Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need … We must prevent Multiplication of this bad stock. — Margaret Sanger, April 1933 Birth Control Review.

Don’t take my word for it. Read Margaret Sanger’s Eugenic ramblings yourself!!

It is always wrong to kill in the name of convenience.

It is always wrong to kill in the name of convenience. Why do liberals tolerate this? Why do you want to burn preborns with chemicals or crush their heads and remove limbs from the body? How does such barbarism make us a better society? There’s a reason we call it Klanned Parenthood!

Predictions: YAWN – NSM Rally Celebrates Murderers

Meh. I wasn’t even going to bring this up. But, I guess it’s important for my Conservative friends to know who to watch out for at our events… meh. The white trash welfare recipients (do any of them have jobs?) at the National Socialist Movement are going to have an event within the next week or so to celebrate the murderers they admire… Since I don’t advertise their events, I’m not going to give the details of the dates, places, talk about where the after party is, etc etc because they’re not worth the bandwidth. Besides, the people who need to know, already know. Also, it’s going to be the same old thing they always do. MEH, they are BORING! YAWN!

Meh. Meh. Meh.

PREDICTIONS

Here are the predictions:

  • It will be the same old shtick, different city.
  • They will predict that 1000 Nazis & Klanners will participate. 30 people will show up. There will be more informants than members.
  • They’ll have a drunken party afterward where someone will have a homosexual experience in a broken down trailer. A really awful WN “band” will play “music” aka screaming while grown men slam into each other.
  • Some fool will light a cross and swastika on fire. Hopefully, they’ll start themselves on fire.
  • A former NSMer will reappear.
  • No one will be arrested.
  • No one will be able to hear any of the speeches because they have sub par equipment.
  • A lot of police will be paid overtime.
  • The NSM will get 2 new members – 1 FBI, 1 informant for a group.
  • ARA will show up in their stupid little bandanas and make illicit gestures at their groins to prove how sophisticated they are. Some will spend the hours before smoking pot and forget to show up. Others will play around and try to find out at which hotels the NSMers are staying, giving them relevance. (HINT: Try the 3 cheapest hotels.)
  • The phrase “No Nazis, No KKK, No fascist USA” will be chanted at least once.
  • The NSM promotional YouTube videos will feature some really awful WN band in the background as they walk with their idiotic signs and banners.
  • There will be a press blackout.
  • They will continue to be irrelevant.

The real money is on which one will snap next? There are so many short fuses, so many buttons to press. I can’t think of one of those fools who isn’t one of the following: a petty thief, sex offender, pedophile, been in jail at least once, welfare recipient, sociopath, or combination thereof. Hopefully, part of the after party will be that they’ll follow their SS guy’s path and slit their wrists (Just do it parallel to the arm rather than across the wrist – otherwise, you just make a huge mess. Even better, cut the artery in your neck). Besides, if you want to come back as Aryan gods, you need to die so you can shed yourself of your human body. Didn’t you KNOW that?

I do think it’s cute how they are pretending to be former Republicans nowadays. None of those fools could cut it as a Republican. Republicans do these funny things called “going to work” and “being self-sufficient.” We don’t do food stamps and section 8. Nazis aren’t welcome for tea.

Fascism, Communism, and Racism – Oh My!: The Beginning

Introduction

One of the reasons I started this site is that it seems like those antifa who actively oppose racism are left leaning and favor autocratic, huge nanny state governments that disallow freedom – BUT, they go out and protest neo-nazis who believe in the same thing?!? They also like to state that anyone who doesn’t favor destroying human flesh inside a mother’s body is oppressive or that capitalism is an evil philosophy. Both leftist anti-fascists and neo-nazis have similar level of disdain for capitalism, individual liberty, and human life. It would be amusing if it weren’t so toxic to freedom. Also, Communism killed many more people than Nazism ever could and was an oppressive force for a longer length of time. Neither were good for Jews and I detest both philosophies. Both groups are violent and not people whom I would trust around my daughter.

If you are going to oppose a political/sociological/economic philosophy, you need to have a basic understanding of what the various political, sociological, and economic philosophies represent. So, let’s investigate this further.

This discussion will occur over several posts. (Since I do this funny thing called going to work, it will span over several months.) First, let’s define each of these concepts. Then, an in depth assessment into each philosophy is needed. They will be compared and contrasted, looking at the socio-political-economic ramifications of each from past and modern American and European viewpoints. Last, it will be shown how these concepts intermingle with each other within the lens of past and modern American and European culture.

I often hear people talking about being anti-fascist, anti-racist, and anti-communist. I would consider myself to be all of those. Since I will be writing mostly from my perspective and infusing my own bias into this analysis, here is a little background on me. I am Capitalist, pro-life, pro-contraception, pro-Constitution, and a rugged individualist. I am fiscally conservative, could care less about same sex marriage, and want my government to leave me the hell alone. The Republican Party has gotten me rather angry lately due to its spinelessness. If the Libertarian Party weren’t so anti-Semitic, I’d be a Libertarian. I’m really not “Tea Party” and dislike RINOs. I avoid the Ron Paul types and hate conspiracy theories. I believe in Conservative Judaism. I love firearms and grew up around them. I grew up in a lower middle class, blue collar family. Today, I have a double Masters, several professional certifications, speak several languages, own a consulting business, and am upper middle class. I’ve worked hard for everything I own, paid for my own college, and never took a handout. I don’t oppose the government offering temporary welfare assistance but think that the goal should be to help people obtain the skills they need to get off of welfare and restore their dignity and self-respect.

For now, let’s set a foundation for our discussion. Let’s take a look at the three concepts of Fascism, Communism, and Racism as defined by Merriam Webster and Concise Encyclopedia.

What is Fascism?

Fascism is basically a type of government. Other types of government are: Democracy, Dictatorship, and Monarchy.

Here is Merriam Webster’s definition of Fascism:

1 often capitalized: a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
2: a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control

Here is Concise Encyclopedia’s description of Fascism:

Philosophy of government that stresses the primacy and glory of the state, unquestioning obedience to its leader, subordination of the individual will to the state’s authority, and harsh suppression of dissent. Martial virtues are celebrated, while liberal and democratic values are disparaged. Fascism arose during the 1920s and ’30s partly out of fear of the rising power of the working classes; it differed from contemporary communism (as practiced under JOSEPH STALIN) by its protection of business and landowning elites and its preservation of class systems. The leaders of the fascist governments of Italy (1922–43), Germany (1933–45), and Spain (1939–75)—BENITO MUSSOLINI, ADOLF HITLER, and FRANCISCO FRANCO—were portrayed to their publics as embodiments of the strength and resolve necessary to rescue their nations from political and economic chaos. Japanese fascists (1936–45) fostered belief in the uniqueness of the Japanese spirit and taught subordination to the state and personal sacrifice.

What is Communism?

Communism is basically a type of economy. Other economic types are Capitalism and Socialism.

Here is Merriam Webster’s definition of Communism:

1a: a theory advocating elimination of private property
B: a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed
2
Capitalized
A: a doctrine based on revolutionary Marxian socialism and Marxism-Leninism that was the official ideology of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
B: a totalitarian system of government in which a single authoritarian party controls state-owned means of production
C: a final stage of society in Marxist theory in which the state has withered away and economic goods are distributed equitably
D: communist systems collectively

Here is Concise Encyclopedia’s description of Communism:

Political theory advocating community ownership of all property, the benefits of which are to be shared by all according to the needs of each. The theory was principally the work of KARL MARX and FRIEDRICH ENGELS. Their “Communist Manifesto” (1848) further specified a “dictatorship of the PROLETARIAT,” a transitional stage Marx called SOCIALISM; communism was the final stage in which not only class division but even the organized state—seen by Marx as inevitably an instrument of oppression—would be transcended (see MARXISM). That distinction was soon lost, and “communist” began to apply to a specific party rather than a final goal. VLADIMIR ILICH LENIN maintained that the proletariat needed professional revolutionaries to guide it (see LENINISM). JOSEPH STALIN’s version of communism (see STALINISM) was synonymous to many with TOTALITARIANISM. MAO ZEDONG mobilized peasants rather than an urban proletariat in China’s communist revolution (see MAOISM). European communism (see EUROCOMMUNISM) lost most of its following with the collapse of the Soviet Union (1991).

What is Racism?

Racism is a sociological issue.

Here is Merriam Webster’s definition of Racism:

1: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
2: racial prejudice or discrimination

Here is Concise Encyclopedia’s description of Racism:

Any action, practice, or belief that reflects the racial worldview—the ideology that humans are divided into separate and exclusive biological entities called “races,” that there is a causal link between inherited physical traits and traits of personality, intellect, morality, and other cultural behavioral features, and that some “races” are innately superior to others. Racism was at the heart of North American SLAVERY and the overseas colonization and empire-building activities of some western Europeans, especially in the 18th century. The idea of RACE was invented to magnify the differences between people of European origin in the U.S. and those of African descent whose ancestors had been brought against their will to function as slaves in the American South. By viewing Africans and their descendants as lesser human beings, the proponents of slavery attempted to justify and maintain this system of exploitation while at the same time portraying the U.S. as a bastion and champion of human freedom, with human rights, democratic institutions, unlimited opportunities, and equality. The contradiction between slavery and the ideology of human equality, accompanying a philosophy of human freedom and dignity, seemed to demand the dehumanization of those enslaved. By the 19th century racism had matured and the idea spread around the world. Racism differs from ethnocentrism in that it is linked to physical and therefore immutable differences among people. Ethnic identity is acquired, and ethnic features are learned forms of behavior. Race, on the other hand, is a form of identity that is perceived as innate and unalterable. In the last half of the 20th century several conflicts around the world were interpreted in racial terms even though their origins were in the ethnic hostilities that have long characterized many human societies (e.g., Arabs and Jews, English and Irish). Racism reflects an acceptance of the deepest forms and degrees of divisiveness and carries the implication that differences among groups are so great that they cannot be transcended.

The Chosen People and Gentiles

Let’s address the Chosen and Goyim topics today…

Something I often hear White Nationalists whine about is that Jews call non-Jews “cattle,” or “goyim.” Ok, so let’s talk about what Goy means.

So, What Does Goy/Goyim Mean?

Goy is Hebrew for nation. Goyim means people of the nation. Jews are goyim of Israel.

Goyim looks like this in Hebrew: לְאוֹם

What Is Hebrew For Cattle?

Beamah is Hebrew for cattle. It looks like this in Hebrew: בְּעִיר

Do we have that straight? Good.

How Is Goy/Goyim Used?

There is nothing insulting about the word “goy.” Also, it should be noted that Torah refers to the Jewish people using the term “goy.” In Exodus 19:6, G-d says that the Children of Israel will be “a kingdom of priests and a holy nation,” that is, a goy kadosh. Kadosh is the Hebrew word for holy.

Anyway, the term is no more insulting than the word “gentile.”

Orgin of The “Chosen” People

Judaism maintains that the righteous people will have a place in the world to come aka Heaven. This has been the majority rule since the days of the Talmud. Judaism generally recognizes that Christians worship the same G-d that we do. Those who follow the tenets of their religions can be considered righteous in the eyes of G-d.

Judaism does not believe that Jews are better than other people. We do not believe that G-d chose the Jews because of any inherent superiority. According to the Talmud (Avodah Zarah 2b), G-d offered the Torah to all the nations of the Earth, and the Jews were the only ones who accepted it. In other words, WE chose G-d! The Talmud says that Jews were offered the Torah last, and accepted it only because G-d held a mountain over their heads! (In Ex. 19:17, the words generally translated as “at the foot of the mountain” literally mean “underneath the mountain”!) Another traditional story suggests that G-d chose the Jewish nation because they were the lowliest of nations, and their success would be attributed to G-d’s might rather than their own ability. Clearly, these are not the ideas of a people who think they are better than other nations. (Taken from a wonderful source: http://www.jewfaq.org/gentiles.htm)

Being “Chosen”

Because we chose to accept Torah, Jews have a unique status in the eyes of G-d, but we lose that special status when we abandon Torah. Also, the blessings that we receive by accepting the Torah come with a price. Jews have a greater responsibility than non-Jews. While non-Jews are only obligated to obey the seven commandments given to Noah, Jews are responsible for fulfilling the 613 mitzvot in the Torah, thus G-d will punish Jews for doing things that would not be a sin for non-Jews. And again, non-Jews have as much right to G-d as we do. (Again, Jew FAQ is a great source on this topic: http://www.jewfaq.org/gentiles.htm)

What Does A Jew Look Like?

Well folks, my genetic test from 23andme.com came back. FINALLY!

This is me:

This is me.

This is me. It is a fairly dorky picture.

I think being 100% European makes me “white,” though I’m actually more peachy. I have blonde naturally wavy hair and blue eyes. (Actually, they turn greenish blue sometimes.)

My father’s ancestors came from Friesland, England, and Norway. My mother’s family came from Austria, France, Poland, and Sweden. My parents both have blond hair and blue eyes. Some of my relatives have red hair, some brown.

me 1976

I am three years old in this picture.

So, how am I Jewish genetically?

This is a trick question. There is no Jewish gene, Catholic gene, or Baptist gene. Judaism is a religion, a people, and a culture. Jews in Ethiopia are dark skinned. Jews from Europe have light skin. Jews who are from the Middle East have olive skin. Jews in the polar regions… have skin covered in warm clothing!

I’m Jewish because I practice Judaism, studied under a rabbi, and went in front of a rabbinic court to declare my intentions to the Jewish community. I have a Jewish name and a certificate declaring that I am Jewish.

K1a9

I do, however, have one of the Ashkenazi haplogroups: K1a9. K1a9 originated in the Rhine basin. It is a European haplogroup. Ashkenazi is a culture. Only 40% of the Ashkenazi population has one of the four maternal haplogroups typically associated with the Ashkenazi population. The maternal haplogroup comes from the mitochondrial DNA and is passed on to you by your mother.

The K Haplogroup

I have Haplogroup K, a subgroup of R.
Age: 35,000 years
Region: Near East, Europe, Central Asia, Northern Africa
Populations: Ashkenazi, Druze, Kurds
Highlight: One branch of haplogroup K ties about 1.7 million Ashkenazi Jews living today to a single maternal ancestor.

K split off the more ancient haplogroup U8 about 35,000 years ago. Since then, haplogroup K has been involved in migrations from the Near East into Europe, most notably the founding and expansion of Ashkenazi Jewish populations.

My Maternal Haplogroup is K1a9. 40% of today’s Jewish population come from 4 haplogroups. K1a9 is one of 4 that is typically associated with the Ashkenazi population. To be considered Ashkenazi, you do not have to have one of the Ashkenazi haplotypes. Only 40% of the Ashkenazi population has one of these 4 haplogroups. The term “Ashkenazi” refers to Jews of mainly central and eastern European ancestry, in contrast to those of Iberian (Sephardic), Near Eastern, or North African origin (Ostrer 2001).

“A few branches of haplogroup K, such as K1a9, K2a2a, and K1a1b1a, are specific to Jewish populations and especially to Ashkenazi Jews, whose roots lie in central and eastern Europe. These branches of haplogroup K are found at levels of 30% among Ashkenazi. But they are also found at lower levels in Jewish populations from the Near East and Africa, and among Sephardic Jews who trace their roots to medieval Spain. That indicates an origin of those K haplogroup branches in the Near East before 70 AD, when the Roman destruction of Jerusalem scattered the Jewish people around the Mediterranean and beyond.

About 1.7 million Ashkenazi living today – about 20% of the population – share a single branch of the K haplogroup, K1a1b1a. The diversity of that haplogroup among Ashkenazi suggests that it arose in the Near East between 2,000 and 3,000 years ago, and that everyone who shares it today could have shared a common ancestor as recently as 700 years ago. A similar pattern in two other K branches that are common among the Ashkenazi, K1a9 and K2a2, as well as the N1b branch of haplogroup N, has led researchers to conclude that 40% of the Ashkenazi living today – about 3.4 million people – could descend from as few as four women who lived within the last 2,000 years.” (23andme.com)

My Heritage Breakdown by Region

As recently as 500 years ago, my heritage is as follows:

100% European

63% Northern European

30.6% European Non-Specific

5.6% Eastern European

My Hair and Eye Color Markers

Each marker is listed with a description from 23andme.com.

Eye Color
Marker SNP: rs12913832
My Genotype: GG (Other options: AA, AG)
Gene: HERC2
Chromosome: 15

“Scientists have known for a while that eye colors like green and hazel (variations of the brown eye color found in the majority of the world’s people) can sometimes be explained by SNPs in a gene called OCA2. The OCA2 gene encodes a protein called the “P protein” that is located in melanin-producing cells. While the exact function of the P protein is unknown, it is essential for normal pigmentation and is likely involved in the production of melanin.

The SNP linked to eye color that 23andMe provides data on is not actually in the OCA2 gene. Instead it is located nearby, in another gene called HERC2. Scientists think that this SNP affects how much P protein is made from the OCA2 gene.

Two copies of the A version of the SNP in HERC2 almost always result in brown eyes. One copy of the A version and one copy of the G version can produce brown or green eyes—which color probably depends on other variations in the OCA2 gene, or in other genes. Two copies of the G version of this SNP usually results in blue eyes—but green eyes are possible too, also due to other SNPs.

Three studies have found that blue eyes most often result if a person has two copies of the G version of this OCA2-controlling SNP, suggesting that the genetic origin of the trait can be traced back to a single point in human evolution. The authors of one of the studies hypothesize that the mutation event that created this version of the SNP happened somewhere around the Black Sea between about 6,000 and 10,000 years ago. During that time generations of migrating farmers gradually carried agriculture from the Near East to northern Europe, where blue eyes are most often found. These same researchers found that blue-eyed individuals from the Mediterranean (five from Turkey and two from Jordan) also have the G version of this SNP, suggesting that blue eyes the world over can be explained by variation in this one SNP.” (23andme.com)

Eye Color: Blue vs Green
Marker SNP: rs1393350
My Genotype: GG (Other options: AA, AG)
Gene: TYR
Typical odds of having blue instead of green eyes, if eyes are non-brown.

“A study of people from Iceland and the Netherlands found that variations in a gene involved in melanin production affect a person’s odds of having green as opposed to blue eyes. Assuming a person already has non-brown eyes, the study found that each A at rs1393350 increases the odds of having blue rather than green eyes about 1.4 times. (23andme.com)

Eye Color: Blue vs Green
Marker SNP: rs12896399
My Genotype: TT (Other options: GT, GG)
Gene: Across several
Slightly higher odds of having blue instead of green eyes, if eyes are non-brown.

“A study of people from Iceland and the Netherlands found that, assuming a person already has non-brown eyes, each T at rs12896399 increases the odds of having blue rather than green eyes about 1.5 times. (23andme.com)

Hair Color – Propensity toward having red hair
Marker SNP: rs1805007
My Genotype: CT (Other options: CC,TT)
Gene: MC1R
Substantially higher odds of having red hair.

“Red hair comes in a wide range of shades, from strawberry blond to auburn. It is most common in Ireland, Scotland and other places where people have a significant proportion of Celtic ancestry. A study of people from Iceland and the Netherlands found that many cases of red hair are due to versions of the SNP rs1805007 in the MC1R gene. This gene encodes a protein involved in the production of melanin, the pigment that is in your hair, skin, and eyes. Each T at rs1805007 was found to increase one’s odds of having red hair by about 6.1 times. Unsurprisingly, red hair is also associated with other pigmentation traits, such as light skin and a large number of freckles.” (23andme.com)

Hair Color: Blond vs Brown
Marker SNP: rs1667394
My Geneotype: TT (Other options: CT, CC)
Gene: OCA2
Typical odds of having blond hair (vs. brown hair).

“Hair color is determined by the amount and type of melanin pigment it contains; there are a number of genes that help determine hair color by regulating melanin production. This study of 6,918 people from Iceland and the Netherlands found that each C at rs1667394 decreased a person’s odds of having blond vs. brown hair by about 5 times. The SNP lies in the gene OCA2, which plays a role in pigmentation.” (23andme.com)

Hair Curl
Marker SNP: rs17646946
My Geneotype: GG (Other options: AA, AG)
Gene: TCHH
In Europeans, slightly curlier hair on average.

“Whether your hair is curly or straight, it’s probably a lot like the hair you see all around you in your family. That’s because genetics play a large part in determining hair texture. No single “hair curl” gene has been discovered, however.

Studies (including 23andWe research that used survey answers provided by 23andMe customers) have shown that variation near the TCHH gene determines a small part of hair curl in Europeans. On a scale of 0 to 5 (0 being straight, 5 being super curly), each copy of the A version of rs17646946 was associated with a reduction of about 0.29 curliness points.

The TCHH gene encodes a protein called trichohyalin, which is known to be expressed at high levels in hair follicles and has been shown to be involved in cross-linking of the keratin filaments found in hair in skin.

23andMe researchers have also identified another SNP associated with hair curl. This association, however, has not yet been replicated by other scientists. Read more in the Hair Curl Preliminary Research Report. You can also learn about a genetic variation found mainly in people with Asian ancestry that has been associated with hair thickness in the Hair Thickness Preliminary Research Report.” (23andme.com)
