hair color doesn't mean jack...kakashi,tobirama,kabuto and darui are a few examples.all have white hair...but none are related.BUT,kushina did say that her clan was spread over many lands...so there is quite the possibilty that roshi is uzumaki.we were never told nagato's last name...so he may very well have had the uzumaki last name.
recently people have been very much changing my way of thinking about tobi...i think he may be uzumaki.what's the comment about"trademark red hair"?he may just have red hair himself.who knows,but he definitely knows about the uzumakis...probably more than he knows about the uchihas....

To me, currently there is only another person that we know who is an Uzumaki. Karin. The fact that her chakra is special, and her way of acting, makes me think that she is an Uzumaki.
Kushina, Naruto and Nagato have already been confirmed.
Now, there are a couple others that could end up being Uzumaki if we got only by the hair color, Gaara and his father. Kushina did mention that the remaining ones were forced into hiding.
Gaara's dad was basically the same age as Minato.
Plus, Naruto and Gaara being relatives would be awesome
Karin can't take a hit, contrary to every Uzumaki member we know about. She has no skill in Fuuinjutsu that we've seen, which we know the clan was supposedly good at. Saying that she has a special body is nice and all...but so do half of the characters we've seen. Everyone and their grandmother has a "special body" or "unique chakra" or something to that nature.
Given what we know of the clan, Chouza makes a better fit for an Uzumaki than Karin does. Hair color does not mean everything. Or even something.
Another point to make; the Uzumaki were also feared for their Fuuinjutsu skill...but they weren't the only ones who could use Fuuinjutsu. Just because you're known for something, that doesn't mean you're also unique for it.
actually the hid and fled from the country durring the second shinobi war if i'm not mistaken, which mean that Sasori wouldn't be a Uzumaki since he was part of Suna way before the second shinobi war. And i'm assuming that Garaa's father was also part of suna durring this time as well, infact he was the Kazekage. Red hair means nothing. And if you want to use the theory that it hasn't been disproven then you can also say that it hasn't been proven either which makes this discussion pointless. To me the reason why it hasn't been disproven is because Kishi probably doesn't think people are dumb enough to believe that they are part of the Uzumaki clan. so it will never be disproven...
As for Gaara's dad, not having red hair does not necessarily disprove that a person is not part Uzumaki. For all we know, the gene could be recessive in certain individuals.
As for Kishi not bothering to include more details concerning the red hair, it could be for multiple reasons:
1) there isn't enough time
2) he couldn't find it relevant enough to add it to the plot
3) he wants to leave little hints to amuse and interest the readers that are open for speculation.
Why would you be so offensive and call people dumb for thinking outside the box?

Naruto doesn't know fuuinjutu, but you can't say that he is not Uzumaki because of that. Red hair is genetically inherited while sealing techniques are learned. There's a difference. ::

Also, Gaara being an Uzumaki is extremely unlikely lol.
However Sasori you do have an argument since his grandma Chiyo had longetivity lol she was quite the old timer. But seriously its unlikely ninjas of the Hidden Sand are Uzumaki's.
Actually back durring the second shinobi war and even before the war and somewhat after the war, all the nations didn't associate with each other and didn't trust eachother enough to let another village member to join there village. The eddy village and konoha were the only village that allowed member trading, like kushina and the first hokage's wife... So if Sasori was infact part of the eddy village before, Suna would have most deffinitly not have allowed him to come into there village from fear of him finding out secret information and bringing it back to the eddy and konoha village. :P
On that note, based on what we have seen so far, those with some blood of the sage of the six paths is capable of being compatible with a bijuu. With the gold and silver brothers, raikage assumed that it was their heritage that allowed them to withstand the kyuubi chakra. I think we could imply that this condition applies to the other jinchuriki as well since it has been shown that there are certain individuals who were "compatible."
With gaara, I think it was significant that chiiyo described him to be the first "compatible" one, especially since he was the only redhead among the siblings. And I think gaara's mother may have been part uzumaki or a distant relative of the six paths. I think it may give some explanation to how gaara's sand has been protecting him all this time. I think it's similar to how naruto's parents sealed their power within naruto.
So let me rephrase my earlier statement. I think these individuals are all distant relatives. However, there is a good probability that those with red hair have some part of the uzumaki lineage.
And come on, can't you see that there is something weird going on if sasori can continue to live on only as a small mass of flesh inside a plastic doll.

Look at individuals with jiiton (magnet element). They were mostly present in the sand country, but we recently found another from the cloud country. Specific families are not always restricted to living in one country in principle. With youton (magma element), we have seen the mizukage, tsuchikage's granddaughter, and dodai from the cloud village using them. If these bloodlines limits are inherited, then we can see that it is not impossible for certain families to immigrate to other countries.
Also, look at Roshi. He has red hair. He is a jinchuriki. It seems that only those of special lineage are capable of withstanding the bijuu chakra (I.e. Te gold and silver brothers, the uzumaki clan). He's part of the earth country. Before he got sucked into the gedo mazo, he mentioned that he thinks that he could have walked down the same path as naruto. That is implying that all other conditions that Roshi and naruto were under were pretty much identical, but they just made different decisions, like how naruto and nagato differed in their decision making in the past. This is implying that Roshi may be a relative of naruto, and possibly a uzumaki. This is supporting the possibility that having red hair is a strong indication that the individual may be a part uzumaki.

waitwait roshi (4-tails jinchuuriki) IS an uzumaki - I don't remember where, but tobi definitely mentioned it in one of the last 10 or 15 chapters. Also nagato was an uzumaki, as tobi also revealed....

You see, old age and red hair don't ALWAY'S signify that your an Uzumaki. BUT all Uzumaki do have red hair and prolonged life, more so then other shinobi which means instead of living till the age of say 80 or 90, they might live till they are 110 or something... But saying that all red hair people are Uzumaki is way off. Especially saying that Sasory and Garaa are Uzumaki's. Back in the day (even when the first gave the bijuus), the countries didn't trust eachother. They were still too suspicious of the other countries trying to invade and trick them... So they could have looked at the first actions as a way to gain there trust in order to get closer so that he could take them out when there guard was down. It was obvious to them that the first could control the bijuu, so him giving the bijuu to the other countries didn't do a thing for trust, all the first had to do was take control of them again when they were used againts him... No trust was brought into account, it was simply to balance the power. As for the treaty long ago with the lightning, we all saw what happened when they had a truce, they invaded the leaf and tried to kidnap hinata. Just because there's a treaty doesn't mean that they trust eachother enough to let the other villages shinobi live there... The very first act of trust was between the sand and leaf which was WAY after the fall of the Eddy village. so sorry no, the facts all show that Garaa and Sasory are not Uzumaki. Besides Garaa's family specialize in sand type jutsus. not a trait of the Uzumaki clan.
