Real or Fake?: Haitian Girl with Blue Eyes

Haitian Girl with Blue Eyes

I’ve seen Haitians with green and brown eyes before, but this little girl in Haiti has gorgeous blue eyes. Some say it’s photoshopped; some even say it’s Waardenburg Syndrome (an inherited condition characterized by deafness and partial albinism – pale skin, hair, and eye color).

What do you think? are they REAL or FAKE? Cast your vote below!

    if you can’t tell these are contacts then you need glasses. Look at the outer round, it’s black if they were real they would’ve been blue too

      I suppose you all have never been to St. Raphael? Seeing this little girl in person, you know it’s real. Her family does not have $ for contacts nor contact solution. Seriously people? You should travel more.

        I know this little girl, from mission trips. She is deaf and cannot speak. That dress she has on was purchased from our mission team in 07. Last time i saw her was in June 2014 . When we visit we stay at a compound which consist of a church, school and a medical building. Hope to go back soon. Been to St. Raphael 4 times.

      Contacts on a Haitian Rural girl??/ do you have any idea how much these cost. This would be way too sofisticated for her to pull off

    It is so natural, yet so surprising that some people are surprised by a black person with blue eyes… People who have not been exposed to the variety and diversity of the “human race” will always seek to point out the differences. 

    I have seen several “humans” of darkest pigmentation ( yeah.. many people would rather call them “blacks”) with blue .. yes blue eyes.  I have even had friends with eyes of different colors (one green / one grey or one grey / one brown).  I don’t have to look far in my family where my Haitian grandmother had red hair and green eyes; while I had grey eyes that turned light brown then to a darker brown as I got older. 

    It is all within the human relm and the relm of people being exposed to more of humanity… Open your eyes people and just keep looking…

      Many Haitians have Polish ancestors so the light hair and eyes are their genetic traits passed to their children, not some natural miracle. Google Polish Haitians and learn your ancestors country history. I’m amazed so little ppl know about it and don’t question very light skinned or eyed Haitians.

    waardenburg syndrome causes blue eyes in dark skined people, and different colored eyes in lighter people. Sometimes it also causes deafness. Being part of the Deaf Community personally, I have met only 2 people out of the hundereds of Deaf people I know with this syndrome. They both have stunning eyes! One is dark skinned with blue eyes (similar to the photo above), and one has a blue and a green eye. It looks sorta cool!

    Although it is not impossible to find a black person with no racial mix at all with naturally occurring blue eyes that are not disease related, this girl seem a pretty obvious case of Waardenburg syndrome, the oddly pigmented eyes, the white flocks (notice one of her eyebrows is white and she has white hair at the front of her head), the wide nasal bridge and the far apart eyes are all characteristics of individuals with Waardenburg syndrome, she is very likely to have hearing impairment of some degree.

    Her Eyes are real! I know this young girl.  She lives in St. Raphael, Haiti.  She is deaf and very poor.  She lives with her grandmother.  I hope the person who took this photo and this website is attempting to aid her family as well.  She is a lovely girl.

    I think the photo is real.  My conjecture is  the girl inherited Waardenburg syndrome.  It isn’t only because of her brilliant blue eyes.  Its her brows too.  Looks like there is  some graying on her  eyebrows.  Early graying  can be a sign of Waardenburg
    BTW she is beautiful..

    In order for an African to have blue eyes, she must have some European genes, and this kid is way too dark to have any European genes, especially considering Haitis history, it’s simply not long enough for this to happen

    It’s not impossible in most cases but her eyes really do look like contacts. The color looks fake. I’ve never seen a person alive with eyes that color. If there were a close up I would be convinced though.

    Now, it makes more sense that if your Haitian a** mama named you Shenellica, you would FAKE and try to be a hispanic girl named Joseline.A color lens was given to this girl.

    Blacks can have blue eyes. I’m tired of people saying that. Just because blacks are born with a beautiful feature it has to be a defect. Are whites just that ignorant to admit blacks are beautiful and can be born with beautiful features. I have a black friend girl with beautiful natural blonde curly locks and whites always ask her is she mixed and when said “no” they are shocked and insist some form or fashion she is. While UN reality both of her parents are black!
    I’m sorry but this touches me because I am a african american women and my eyes are bluish/Grey. Very light in color and I’ve went through my whole life with whites asking me am I mixed or do I have a “defect”! Its not only rude but it is offensive bc when I answer “no” they insist I do research as if I don’t know my mom and dad ethnicity! Or as if I don’t know I have/or don’t have a defect.
    I AM BLACK. AND PROUD. AND ON TOP OF THAT I HAVE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ASTONISHING BLUE EYES AND SO DOES MY SON. I DONT CARE HOW CRAZY OR UNUSUAL THEY MAY LOOK CONTRAST TO MY BLACK SKIN, BUT THEY ARE MY GOD GIVEN GIFT. AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE UNIQUE we come in varies skin colors, shapes, sizes, we have varies hair colors/texture, & we have different eye colors. Get over it

      Black ppl don’t have blue eyes. You can be mixed whithout realizing it. Some Haitians are literally white, many have light hair or eyes, because of European – Polish ancestors of theirs from 19th century! Times passed, their genes remained. Ppl from Africa don’t vary much in hair and eye colours. Some ppl considered Black, because of dark skin, like Malenesians have naturally light hair but they aren’t African descent. Sorry to brake it to you but ppl of different races mixed since centuries ago.

While UN reality both of her parents are black!
    I’m sorry but this touches me because I am a african american women and my eyes are bluish/Grey. Very light in color and I’ve went through my whole life with whites asking me am I mixed or do I have a “defect”! Its not only rude but it is offensive bc when I answer “no” they insist I do research as if I don’t know my mom and dad ethnicity! Or as if I don’t know I have/or don’t have a defect.
    I AM BLACK. AND PROUD. AND ON TOP OF THAT I HAVE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ASTONISHING BLUE EYES AND SO DOES MY SON. I DONT CARE HOW CRAZY OR UNUSUAL THEY MAY LOOK CONTRAST TO MY BLACK SKIN, BUT THEY ARE MY GOD GIVEN GIFT. AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE UNIQUE we come in varies skin colors, shapes, sizes, we have varies hair colors/texture, & we have different eye colors. Get over it

    Blacks can have blue eyes. I’m tired of people saying that. Just because blacks are born with a beautiful feature it has to be a defect. Are whites just that ignorant to admit blacks are beautiful and can be born with beautiful features. I have a black friend girl with beautiful natural blonde curly locks and whites always ask her is she mixed and when said “no” they are shocked and insist some form or fashion she is. While UN reality both of her parents are black!

    before there was colored contacts even being sold to public back in 89, a Jamaican man that I did not know walked up and started to so to speak sort of inspect every one on the bus stop and smile as he walked by looking at their face, and as he came to me he looked me up and down smiling, looked me in the eyes and stuck out his hand to shake mine and when I didn’t he lean’d his head to the side, smiled and stuck out his hand again and after I did shake his hand so he would leave me alone he shuck hie pointer finger up and down as if to say em em em like I was suppose to know better, never saw him before or after that again

    There is a part of Haiti where there are Blacks of Polish ancestry. During the French invasion of Haiti to quell the Slave rebellion around 1800, Napoleon sent European troops to Haiti. Some of these troops were recruited in Poland. A number of them considered the Haitian side to be oppressed as the Poles were in Poland, deserted and joined the Rebels. Their descendants still exist in Haiti.
