First of all My name is Attila.  Im maygar, turk, mongolian.  Im non indo european.  Yes there are some magyars who are white with light hair and blue or green eyes.  Im olive skin, swarthy complexion and dark eyes.  A lot of people don't know but there's a Attila Hotel in mongolia.  Im proud that the HUNS are my ancestry.  Unfortunatley a lot of europeans will deny Attila was asian.  Let's just say realistically speaking behalf of all my ancestry's The Huns I, Attila is not white and sure Attila The Hun was not white.  And my final word is the true magyars all came from Asia through the Huns.

Well I'm happy to see you here and welcome you to the forum. And I honestly don't care about your ethnic background...I respect it.. and understand why you do as well. And that's the funny thing about nationalism and ethnicity perse. It's a dynamic and useful force but is also two edged. It can also be quite destructive and in the hands of corruptive influence (usually for political purposes) can subsequently be detrimental.
 
But again welcome here...and I look forward to your insights.
 
Thanks

I don't care either about you not caring about my ethnic backround.  I just simply was saying that Attila The Hun was not white but was mixed like me.  That is my simplicity words of my expression.  Thanks From Attila.

attilahunli  all nations were and are mixed...   Attila was so far I know a Hun. Huns were Asian people(and with Asian in this case I mean mongoloid) .  But the Huns had also other many other tribes in their armies...

The movies that portrayed Attila as a European (Gerard Butler)  are actualy very funny to seen but they are only  movies for enteitainment.  nothing more nothing less.....  just as the ''300'' who portrayed the Persians as monsters and orcs    or ''Troy''  ..

If I will entertain myself , than I 'll watch a movie. If I  'll learn history than I read history books ..

But honestly I don't think that  the modern Hungarians have relations with the ancient Huns...      Maybe are some hungarians relate but not all of them ....
