sexual selection isn't as dominant a factor, since blue eyes are recessive, you can't always predict which children will have blue eyes and which wont

I completely agree that it isn't the dominant factor. It still might play some role in selection though. I like blue-eyed girls, and that will certainly increase my offspring's chance of having blue eyes (provided I also carry the gene, of course).

I was thinking more about hair color when I said that, though. And I really don't know what factors cause different hair colors, or what pigments are involved.
