Because that's not how evolution works. Traits don't magically appear because they're logically advantageous.

Random mutations occur and it's up to chance whether they're useful or not. Most don't even make it out of the womb.

My questions is why these random mutations for light hair and eyes DID NOT show up in other races?

Actually, they do also show up in other races, occasionally. There are East Asians born with blue eyes - Afghan redheads with green eyes, and the like. It does happen. These mutations do not become the dominant traits within these groups for some reason.

I read a little known statistic somewhere that 'one in three women experience spontaneous abortions.'

Why is that surprising to you? It could have been one single person with a mutation in exactly the right gene for exactly the right protein. It's a tiny chance of occurring, and then there's the challenge of reproducing and propagating that gene which is certainly no sure thing.

I don't understand why you're assuming it should have manifested in other races too. Odds are, it wouldn't, and that's the way it happened.

It's random chance that they show up
