Actually, a good lesson in anthropology will teach you that your views on race are quite flawed. Asian, Negroid and Caucasian are vague terms that do not define race accurately. A scientist would never use such terms (neither do most governemts).

There are some 45 different races of people in China. All of them are Asian (as are Arabs) but they are dramatically different races. Take for example Han and Mon chinese they don't even look similar. They have similar slanting of the eyes, but even that is different. Chinese (another vague term that does not have anything to do with race) and Japanese don't even look alike.

The African continent is just as vast when dealing with race. Features, coloring, and body porportions differ just as much in Africa as they do in Asian.

Europe is also a vast wonderland. There are 16 races of people in Spain. All of them deemed "Spanish" or "caucasian" by most but they are different races none the less. Take a Prussian and a Bavarian for example two very different peoples who are classified as caucasian Germans. Prussians look Aryan while Bavarians look latin. The German language is almost unrecognizable when spoken by a Bavarian.

It is incredibly naive to say everyone from Africa is a simple Negriod or everyone is Asia is Asian. This simply isn't true and doesn't do justice to the wonderful variety of peoples who are native to these continents.

The color of your skin and the place you live have nothing what-so-ever do to with your ethnic race. Anthro 101.......simple enough.
interesting too :flower:

If she isn&#39;t careful, her beloved Hazza might go missing.

Thank you so much, Layla&#33; I promise I wont neither pick nor hit on Hazza.

I like his face (SA&#39;s) the most when he is smiling. :P

Hey, why is Sheikh Ahmed&#39;s plate empty?

La la, no problem with hitting ON Hazza as long as it&#39;s not just hitting him (without the on).

SA&#39;s plate is empty because I think he has already taken his napkin. The others&#39; is still on their plates.

it&#39;s the left side. you can see it when he smiles. it might not be that obvious in person but in photos-definately.

it has been there as long as i&#39;ve ever known about the guy-a few years.

I posted my favorite SA pic here. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/me_royalty/
It&#39;s in the photo albums. I could never figure out how to put it here. Anyway, you first see a red x but if you click on it, the picture still comes up.
