Um...the term Caucasian does not equal "white" even though overtime the term has become synonymous with meaning "white."

politically to be White does not mean you are or have to be the color of paper, instead it means your ancestors were from europe or "Greater Europe'' which consists of the occidental parts of eurasia, that included euros persians and arabs, along with the north africans and the indians you have the greater caucasion race, in short there is no white race, arab rase parsi race, slavic race, there is only the Indo-European, Caucasoid race, quite a conglomrete of people whom otherwise have no similarities at all.

Seems kinda racist to label people by race. Aren't we all poor banished children of Eve?

Yes we are! Evolution has made this mist of confusion bringing forth racism...

But we all know we are all related from Noah!

I liked him in The Librarian movies.

Actually, racism is Darwinism. Trying to keep your genetic code alive to pass on to the next generation while eliminating competitors. Racism is frigging whack-yo.

here look http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caucasian_race
because they are of the caucasoid race, just as brown skinned indians (from india) and yellow skinned asians are of the mongoloid race.

genetically speaking, they are more closely linked to caucasians than anything else

Old racial classifications aren't really used anymore.

Terms like white and black denote phenotype, not race.

If you think 'race' exists, then prove it. Scientists can't, so they have thrown all that crap out.

The only people calling themselves 'caucasian' and 'negro' are 80 year-olds filling out a census form.

Well, go to your nearest museum, and ask a paleontologist to explain it for you.

Yes - I am a white South African, and can help you out here. White history in SA, in a nutshell, starts in 1652, when Jan van Riebeeck led a Dutch convoy of ships to set up a waypoint towards the East. Since then, Portuguese, English, German and French Settlers all came in big numbers, particularly after the richest gold field in the world was discovered in Johannesburg.

Agreed. The differences between the "races" are very, very small: Skin colour and slight variations in skull shape.

Don't forget, South African races all have bigger penises.
