I ask this question because I know Whites are associated with blue eyes and Blacks are associated with brown eyes. But on a rare occasion you will find a White person who does not have blue eyes and a Black person who does not have brown eyes.

I don't know where you're from but that is not rare.

There are zillions upon zillions of white people with beautiful brown eyes.
I have seen black people with blue eyes, though--and more than once.
It was a strikingly gorgeous combination.

I'm Caucasian myself and I have brown eyes.

What made you think that brown eyes was a rare trait in Caucasians?

An old girlfriend of mine has red hair and green eyes and I have a cousin who has one blue eye and one green eye and I have seen Native Americans with blue eyes as well as African-Americans, so I don't see anything unusual about any of that.

LOL! I have six kids, four with brown eyes. My husband has brown eyes, and I'm the whitest white person you'll ever meet (not including albinos, of course).
