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).


Before I went to Germany, I also thought all European people are called Caucasian. :-|
