Question by : If Pushkin was african, why do russians protray him as a white man?
Do russians have a problem with their only succesful poet, and the shakespeare of the russian language being non russian or something?
Surely with as much african blood as Pushkin had he would not have had brown hair, blue eyes, and pale skin. right? this video portrays this russian man as black.
Answer by Nancy Pelosi 2016
Only his great-grandfather Abram Petrovich was African. Petrovich’s second wife (Pushkin’s great-grandmother) was Swedish-German.
So Pushkin was only 1/16th African by descent.
