    Post The Term "White"

    I think the usage of the color-blank terms such as "White", "Black" and "Yellow" have gotten out of hand for classifications of people. They are obsolete for this day and age. If you research the term "White" and look into the history of definitions for it's usage, it'll probably exclusively mean people of North-Western European descent excluding all others.

    To call an Arab "Non-White" is correct, I guess, if you're using the term only for reference to European peoples. But for an idiot to call Arabs non-Caucasoid is absurd. Caucasoid encompasses Europe, North Africa, and West Asia (Not that many individuals here wouldn't know that.) But I thought that I should bring this to mind.

    Sure, but there's no clear racial distinction between caucasoids to separate any group based on morphology only. That's why I think calling some Caucasoid group 'white' and other caucasoid group 'non-white' is bullshit.

    Cultural + historical + racial characteristics based distinctions on the other hand are welcome.

    good point I think thats why some people want us to call ourselves by a different name like Aryan, if we wanted to do this all we would have to do is write in "Other" when we write in our race in things like the Census and write in whatever we want, but this wont bod well when trying to enlist in the Army or get a job.

    Yeah, deranged Skinheads call themselves Aryan and regard Armenians as "muds" when they're the progenitors of Indo-European Languages, the term "Aryan".
