    Post Classify this Indian actor

    Is this guy classifiable as Nordish ? If so, what nordish elements can you identify ? In case you are curious, this dude is an actor in India.

    No, of course he is not "Nordish" (leaving aside the fact that 'Nordish' is a completely worthless taxonomical category). He is a Hindu, and he's wearing tons of make-up. Even the highest caste Northern Hindus have a large share of Dravidian and Australoid ancestry, and the European ancestry that they do have is Eastern European origin (Eu19 etc..) Here he is as a child:

    I doubt it. Even if he were, partial depigmentation is not tantamount to Northern European ancestry. I've seen blonde and blue-eyed Arabs and Jews, but they certainly aren't "Nordish".

    please provide a link to a site that shows that child to be the actor

    but what about the facial structure and the build ?

    yes they are, because nordish refers to phenotype.

    'Nordish' refers, or rather should refer to ancestry. If it refered to phenotype, than so-called North Atlantids and Paleoatlantids would either be non-Nordish, or all Southern Europeans would be 'Nordish'.

    Here is a better picture of the man:

    Hahahaha. Since I am an "indic" and familiar with indian cinema, I can assure you that the dude whose pics you posted is not the same one as the one I posted. Your guy is definitely not nordish and is quite dark skinned. His name is akshay kumar (http://www.apunkachoice.com/people/act81/)

    Oops, well, my mistake . I am not exactly a Bollywood expert.

    I strongly dislike the term "Nordish", because it it's vague and utterly arbitrary (as you have proved). McCulloch changes the definition for different groups. Mediterranean-looking Britons like George Harrison and Catherine Zeeta Jones are 'Nordish' in McCulloch's book, because of how long they've been living in Northern Europe. On the other hand, blonde Saami are not 'Nordish' (ask McCulloch why), regardless of the fact that they are depigmented and have lived in Northern Europe for thousands of years. Personally, I prefer to equate the term with ancestry rather than phenotype to get rid of the confusion. I'd rather not use the idiotic term at all, but due to the McCulloch-centrism of this board, I am forced to do so by circumstances.
