When I was in college, one professor discussed a bit of tangential history. When he got to the one about whites invading India, he said he "didn't like the idea of whites being involved in the development of every civilization." My good sir, that shit is most tough. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2007/02/02/wroman02.xml The very likely answer is that these people are the mixed descendants of the White Tocharians and closely related peoples, ancient distant relatives of the Celts, who survived into the 7th century AD. Practicing, at different points, shamanism, solar faith similar to Persian Zoroastrianism and "Angel worship," Buddhism, Christian Nestorianism and Manichaeism, they and their civilization were eventually crushed by Turkic and Chinese incursions, something left out of potted histories of imperialism. Their mummified dead have long puzzled archaeologists. By the early 1990s, over a thousand Nordic corpses had been uncovered from the graveyards the Wapu region; but by 1998, the Chinese government had halted further archaeological expeditions to the area, quite likely for fear of exposing yet more ancient European faces to the world. The discovery of the White mummies has served to highlight their racial and ethnic differences from the Chinese and the issue has become a political hot potato for that country's government. Trolled by ancient whites... Pwned!
