Some turkish who are claiming  that these Yoruks are pure Turks or Seljuks tribes is contradicting to the Turkmen looks from Central Asia and middle east.  The problem is way too many of them have way lighter skin, light eyes and light hair and even the darker one still don't look like those from Turkmenistan or Iran. These Turks look whiter than Turkish people. I'm not even talking about the ones that look Mongoloid but even in terms of  Caucasoid there is huge physical difference. There's no way that these are the Turk invader in pure form, their origins must have been Indo-European anatolian tribes.


Turkmen and Iranian-Turkmen don't look anything like these

Are the Yoruks themselves concerned?

And other then from a historical, anthropological, correct identification of their original ethnicity...why should they be.
