That micro-mini thingee was a kilt? Didn't really notice... was too busy looking at your hairy legs.

Oh, or was it only caucasian women who are supposed to be hairy?

(Sorry for the cross-thread reference. Bad bad me!)


That's why my wife wears pants. And... OK... not really a micro kilt... more like a pleated school girl skirt.

We Germans and Italians DEFINITELY don't want to be confused with Caucasians - inhabitants of the dozen or so small and troublesome countries that constitute the Caucasus mountains between Russia and Turkey.
I wonder why North Americans insist on being called after them.

Now I am confused :P I thought the "Caucasoid race" is a term used to discribe folks originating from the European continent extending into Russia..

In any case, aren't we all the product of mixed ancestries shaped by past changes in climate, migration, war and peace?

Caucasian is a sweeping term that encompasses a wide variety of people of European descent, just like the term Asian covers a wide variety of ethnicities in Asia. But beppi is correct... the term originally referred to a group of people in the Caucasus mountain areas.

To make matters even worse, the so-called Caucasian ethnicity didn't originate in or near the Caucasus mountains (that was a wrong assumption of early anthropologists), but in Persia (nowadays Iran). They migrated to Europe from there through Mesopotamia (now Iraq), Turkey and the Balkans, and at the same time also settled in Northern India (where related languages are spoken until today). Another word for these people, Aryan, is politically sensitive since it was abused by the Nazis for their misguided idea of German-ness.
I am not Caucasian, but Indogermanic or European. But most of all I'm member of the Human race (no complaint received so far when filling this into official forms).

int8taam wrote:hi,

I would like to find out if there are any mixed-marriages around here (preferably one half is Singaporean)? I'm doing some research and would appreciate any help!

Mixed marriages could mean anything like: caucasian-chinese, indian-chinese, italian-chinese, german-malay, etc.

Would love to hear back from some of you soon!


Cheers!
Mixed marriages in Singapore :roll: you have got to be joking :lol: Try the statistic office, your wasting your time on a forum. Don't ask me to grade you for initiative :-| your first step was a disaster!
