So what “race” are the Finns? Surely their language pattern is different but are they genetically different also?

Not all white folk are descendants of people from the Caucusus. Most are, of course, but not all.

Finns have several different groups in their background. One such group consists of the Indo-European speaking Swedes. Another consists of the Indo-European speaking Russians. There were also Uralic/Altaic speaking people who came there and left genes. Then, there are the Sa'ami.

Today's modern Sa'ami languages are classified as Finno-Ugric mostly on the basis of common vocabulary. In reality, they have many grammatical functions of demonstrably ancient origin that have their counterparts in nothing less than Ancient Sumerian. That language may be a cognate of a Dravidian language in existence 7000 years ago.

The Sa'ami themselves are a genetic isolate although the Skolt appear to have had outside contact about 7000 years ago.

Anything from 7000 years ago is a tad BEFORE the creation of any of the Caucasion languages or ethnic groups. They were just wild, nekkid savages in those days.

Europe has several other non-Indo European languages. The best known is Basque which probably dates to the Ice Age.

Oh, forgot to answer the question ~ Finns, like many other groups in the far North, tend to be blond. Almost any picture of a bunch of Finns shows blonds. Check the eyes! You’ll see some differences. They, themselves, recognize the blue eyed folks as being different from the light gray eyed folks.
