There's no such thing as a 'pure' European–or anyone else (sciencemag.org)

The whole concept of racial purity really only makes sense if you have a poor grasp of science or a nefarious intention.

what about 'indigenous'?

Quote the article: “Basically, everybody’s myth is wrong, even the indigenous groups’”.

I never understood how one could try to argue one's "race superiority" by claiming one's blood to be pure.

Especially in Europe where you have lots of migration and mingling even in recorded history. The Roman Empire was an early melting pot and the following Völkerwanderung added only to this mix.
