Aryan race? Huh?
Aaron, there are specific tribal groups that were Indo-Aryan, SOME of which
became Germanic, which is far from the same thing as German; but there is no
such thing as an Aryan race. That was a myth invented by Hitler's people
and enforced by selective breeding of people wiht blond hair and blue eyes.
I think they may even have been sterilizing people with brown hair and eyes.
