    Semites are a subgroup of Caucassoid. So yes, they are caucasian.

    For anything non-medical, however, race doesn't matter in the slightest. And even for medical purposes, the differences are minimal. So why would we even care?

    Admittedly, I love throwing it in white supremacist's faces every time... 'Hey, you know those really dark-skinned Indian people? Yeah, they're just as 'white' as you are.' It's hilarious.

    Does it matter what you or me consider? There's a scientific definition of race and which ethnicities are a part of each particular race.

    So... White South American people are Caucasian? Just curious.

    If we're using the archaic Caucasoid, Negro, Mongoloid classifications, then yes, I suppose they are.

    'Negro' has been updated. It's no longer colour-specific, but now 'region of origin of traits'-specific. It's called 'Congoid.'

    Thanks, I feel like that was rattling around in my head, but didn't recall it. I'm not really sure those terms of use for anyone other than specific sorts of anthropologists anyway, but it's probably worth remembering.

    Well; it's sort of important-ish with regards to immunization, diet, stuff like that. But not very.

    It's just that 'negro' is too heavy a focus on 'dark skin' and because it is an arbitrary thingy with no regards to actual anthropology, more likely to be used for the purpose of racism. Which is why it's pretty much bad.

    Edit: Which is also why terms like 'white,' 'yellow' and 'red' are really bad for the purpose of describing ethnic (racial) backgrounds.

    Sure, that's right. It's going to become less useful in every sort of biomedical treatment going forward as it becomes easier and easier to just run complete genome screens and draw useful information from them though. No need to say, "well, black people tend towards X" when we can just check each individual! Exciting times in bioinformatics lie ahead.

    Yes we are. no question about it since color is not even considered. North Africa + All of Europe + West Asia people come from the same ancestors.

    That is what i learned from school anyways.

    Lol @ Second post



    ^ this is pretty much the middle east

    Guess what countries are NOT part of it? India/Pakistan/surrounding countries.

    The Indians/Pakistanis/surrounding countries' people from the first 2 pictures in your post are not middle eastern

    And that "Saudi" guy doesn't look Saudi for shit LOL

    Here's a Saudi (HH The King of Saudi Arabia):


    An Emirati: (HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum)


    A Jordanian: (HH King of Jordan)


    So, yeah, we're actually pretty caucasian if you think about it although I'd classify us as 'middle eastern' because there are quite a few differences between what would traditionally be thought of as 'caucasian'.

    Strange that years of holy crusades and other religious routes would have had some cross breeding and mixing of dominate genes. As many people have pointed out who cares they are humans, that is the only race we should concern ourselves with.

    See why 'white' and 'black' are horrible terms? They divide peoples based on arbitrary things, and contribute nothing necessary or even beneficial.

    It must have been really hard being the only white person in that region of the world.
