afghanis arent persian bb.
they're afghani, they just speak farsi
not even everyone in iran is persian
its only the people who are descended from that aryan race

I should've said Persian-speaking. However, your assesment is not entirely accurate as almost no iranian is ~pure~ persian, there has been so much intermarriage and mixing that it makes me laugh to hear that. In the same way, some segments of the Pashtuns have closely intermixed with Persians (and you can almost tell by the facial features) given that Afghanistan was part of Persia for the majority of its history.

As well, Dari (which I believe until the 20th century was not considered 'different' from persian) is believed by scholars to sound much more like the persian of historical Iran, so the way they pronounce things is technically more /correct/ this is a matter of debate, but if you ever listen closely to Dari speakers you'll see that they completely pronounce words and grammar (whereas Iranian persians just mish-mash everything together in everyday speech).
