    To my knowledge, 'caucasian' means white. Whites have been known to lump mixed and nonwhite individuals in that category if it was to manipulate and maneuver the political environment in their favor.

    True indeed.

    Even further, it refers specifically to their origins, as having come from the Caucus Mountains.

    I think it's ironic to say the least, that the etymological origin of this term defines who they are as people.

    "Caucas" is often defined as "hidden" or "cast away". It has also come to me "dead", as in carcass.

    "Asian or Asia" is word that means "Body or mass".

    Caucas + Asian = "Dead Body"?

    Hmmmm....... :thinking:

    Caucasian doesn't necessarily mean white. White is white, so it isn't fair to call a dark Mediterranean such as a Sicilian white, although they were white before the Moorish invasion in that area. :)

    The sad part about this exerpt, is that my firewall filter here at work, would not let me click on this link.

    This is the reason why:

    "The Websense category "Racism and Hate" is filtered."

    This alone sufficiently answers my question about this.

    PEACE
