DJ Khaled is a man who makes rap music. Arabs, Asians and Whites originated in Africa. The first human being found who could have created all of us (brown, asian and caucasian) was a woman who was what we now call a Bushman. Bushmen are from Africa; their eyes have an epicanthic fold like the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Philippine, etc. they have large brains and the Y chromosomes needed to create all of the people currently on this earth. The Bushmen created the people we currently call Black although they are Brown, Asians, Caucasians and all other Brown people not from Africa. They are the only people who could have created all of us.

We have all been on this earth for so many thousands of years. The Ice Age and other changes have made us look different.

DJ Khaled is human and he likes and makes rap music.

Let’s leave race or place of birth out of it and just enjoy the music.

Yeah, Arab’s are actually Caucasians.

Modern genetic analysis has confirmed the existence of three racial clusters.

The three races of man are Caucasian, Asian, and Negroid, sometimes Australoid is thrown in there as a fourth race.

“Brown” People as we know them today are generally mixed race, Hispanics usually a heavy mix of Caucasian and Asian (Native American) with some African, East Indians are a mix of Caucasian and Asian, and North Africans and some in the Middle East are a slight mix of Caucasian and Negroid, however skin color does not mean admixture with Africans, Caucasians in parts of the world like the Mediterranean, Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia which get higher UV radiation levels than other regions where Caucasians live have adapted to their enviroment by developing skin that tans darker.

Syria since past years (thousands years ago) had tribles with white skinned people. But people from western Middle east was radically influenced by the many european arms who crossed that region to get to Egypt (the center of the world for thousands years). Countries such as Israel, Palestina, Jordania and Libanon. Many civilizations raised in Middle East were brown skinned such as Sumerians who had curly hair. There is a picture made by egyptians where they represented 4 civilizations related to them: Libyans, themselves, Nubians and Syrians. Libyans were light brown, egyptians were brown, Nubians were blacks and Syrians were white. Arabs from Saudi Arabia and Gulf are Khaliji, naturally brown skinned because they live there since forever and evolved from african homo sapiens to accommodate to the climate in that region. North Europeans are light skinned because they evolved to the freezing climate from Europe. You cand find brown skinned caucasian people from North Africa to Central Asia, which has nothing to do with black people because world is bigger than Europe. He can say the N word because he was raised as a second-class citizen just for being darker than germans, british, etc.

its easy to explain

turkey, iraq, armenia, syria all of the people there mixed with each other for centuries

and there are turks from the black sea area with blue eyes and blond hair

thats a result of migration
