//deconstructing the eurocentric view of blonde hair.. 

visit melanesia’s solomon islands {1800 kilometers northeast of australia} and you’ll notice a striking contrast: about 10% of the dark-skinned islanders sport bright blond afros. hypotheses about the origins of this golden hair have included bleaching by sun and saltwater, a diet rich in fish, and the genetic legacy of europeans or americans. guess what- no euro/american genes- instead, it’s a random mutation that suggests blond hair has evolved independently at least twice in human history.. {science mag}
