Simple gene answer. Each trait like eye color is defined by a 2 genes 1 from each parent. Brown eye gene (B) dominates blue eye gene (b).A parent like your dad could be BB brown or Bb brown while your mom can only be bb blue.Since you have blue eyes, your dad must be Bb brown & gave you his b gene to combine with moms & make you blue.It doesn't matter where they got the genes, this is how you got yours.

Recessive trait. Blue eyes are inherited as a recessive trait. This means you must have the "blue eyed gene" from both parents. Brown eyes are dominant which means you only need one "brown eyed gene" to have brown eyes. Your father must have one blue eyed and one brown eyed gene, and your mother has 2 blue eyed genes. Your inherited one from each of them. Ethnic background has nothing to do with it. Read more...

It doesn't matter how many cultures the genes passed through. This is straightforward stuff. Read more...
