Una March 7, 2012 at 6:43 pm

these shit comments are crazy

redhead March 2, 2012 at 2:33 pm

I am such a loser for even reading this crap.

Roger January 25, 2012 at 9:34 pm

Zuckerberg is a distant Asian.

me January 25, 2012 at 9:38 pm

by your posts you are not far from a mentally deficient.

Selene-The-Immortal January 25, 2012 at 9:45 pm

What is this, Me? I thought you agreed with him?

me January 25, 2012 at 9:50 pm

I thought you agreed with him?

me January 25, 2012 at 9:52 pm

no, I was just trolling =D

me January 25, 2012 at 9:57 pm

But Mark Zuckerberg

Roger January 25, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Exactly how have you contributed to this site other than speculative, baseless,and uninformative claims? You’re only contribution to this site is unentertaining attention-whoring. It’s the clinically obese and reclusive pot meeting the kettle, eh? Where are you contradicting me, fatty patty?

me January 26, 2012 at 6:31 am

hahaha,don’t make me laugh

Roger January 26, 2012 at 11:13 am

You want to laugh? Look at your avatar. That photo, and your lack of standard ability to argue or rationalize intelligently makes anyone laugh. It sure did to me, LOL, oh Patty.

me January 26, 2012 at 11:27 am

thumbs down in your hidden comments “show” your great capacity for reasoning.

Roger January 26, 2012 at 11:59 am

Patty: How does posting a factual and evident comment that unsophisticated people like you disagrees with means it questions my “reasoning”. I didn’t know ugliness it also contagious to the brain.

What country are you from?

Roger January 26, 2012 at 11:55 am

Yeah, your face is very repulsive and disgusting. Sad.

me January 27, 2012 at 8:04 am

However you are still sitting with your unemployed butt and “pretty” face admiring my avatar, you just make me laugh,yous assumed that everyone knew.

Roger January 27, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Patty: “adimiring”? I think questioning their sexuality is what most guys are coin when looking at your. Photo. With every more post you write, I’m actually more and more pity at a girl so repulsive looking and unfortunately also dumb and seemingly illiterate. Wow, again, you are woo sad. How are you still alive.

me February 13, 2012 at 2:59 pm

The administrator of this site was supposed to block you.

me March 3, 2012 at 4:09 pm

claudia March 3, 2012 at 4:48 pm

me February 19, 2012 at 10:33 am

Roger is a disrespectful jerk.

me March 2, 2012 at 2:08 pm

I do not believe in this.

me January 25, 2012 at 8:34 pm

@me I do not think EVERYBODY is “white.” In fact, most people in the world are NOT. Halle Berry, Eva Longoria, Tyson Beckford, Jessica Szohr, Adriana Lima, Prince, Tyra Banks, Mariah Carey, Johnny Depp, Taylor Lautner, Wilmer Valderrama, Mike Tyson, Nicole Scherzinger, Vanessa Minnillo, Beyonce, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Selena, Jennifer Lopez, Dorothy Dandridge, Darren Criss, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Obama, Vanessa Williams, Vanessa Hudgens, Freida Pinto, Kimora Lee, Janet Jackson, etc. etc. are all NOT white/Caucasian.

But it seems for you, me, that NO ONE is white/Caucasian.

me January 25, 2012 at 8:42 pm

I do not doubt that before long you will say that Aishwarya Rai is white or European part,that Indians are white, the world was come from Europe.
Do not get frustrated cause you looks a off-white. Socially you are white, but not European or pure.

me January 25, 2012 at 8:49 pm

Aishwarya Rai is not white. I do not think Indians are white.

me January 25, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Danes and Swedes have a mongoloid and sami admixture

me January 25, 2012 at 8:57 pm

Okay. Fine. You guys win. Those with very distant Native and/or African heritage are not white. Western and Northern Europeans with distinct or exotic features are not white. That means that pretty much NO ONE is white.

This is basically what you and Roger claim. You say I think everyone is white? No. I do not. Actually, it is you who wants no one to be white/Caucasian.

me January 25, 2012 at 9:16 pm

I’m surprised because you didn’t mention Armenians, Lebanese and Iranians as whites still.

me January 25, 2012 at 9:54 pm

I already told you I do not think everyone is “white.” I do not know why you think I do. What I consider to be “white” is pretty normal in the real world.

Roger January 25, 2012 at 9:19 pm

Unlike your claims, I actually have links to back up my claims.

Selene-The-Immortal January 25, 2012 at 9:34 pm

Based on your study, “whites” just do not exist.

Roger January 26, 2012 at 9:50 am

And Wikipedia is a reliable and unsubjective source? This is rational. I did not know somebody with Mongoloid and possible African blood is considered “White”. It seems to me, you, “me” and have fatty patty have a pretty varying, if not bizarre view of “race”. Really, anybody can be white, yet labels of “race” are still use.

Quite ironic, don’t you think? I’m very confused..

Roger January 25, 2012 at 9:28 pm

You said that the categorization of the “White” is purely a social construct and a skin color? You’re right. You’re right because there are a lot of people who are, pardon my language-“mongrelly” mixed. Which why it’s saddening to see some minorites wanting to be “caucasianized”. In Latin America, the idea of success is “whiteness”. That’s why there are of mestizo or mullatos who would like to breed with “white” women in hopes of having lighter-skin children.

me January 25, 2012 at 9:33 pm

the idea of ​​success is “whiteness”? prove it roger scientist

Selene-The-Immortal January 25, 2012 at 9:43 pm

“White” can only be purely a social construct. According to your link, Roger, more than half of Europe is not white as well as Northern Europeans.

According to it, scientifically there is no population group called “white people.” This I have to agree with. You speak of “true whites” and “real whites,” Roger. There is no such thing.

I can only come to the conclusion that “whites” really do not exist and are all “mixed.” Just because you see a woman on the street that looks like Heather Locklear does not mean she is “white” as you define it, Roger.

By your rules, “whites” simply do not exist. Plain and simple.

Roger January 25, 2012 at 9:59 pm

I’m speaking culturally, Patty. WTF does “science” have anything to do with it? If you look at the the Entertainment industry in Latin America, the majority of actors are Caucasoid-esque. Just to educate you, fatty patty.

It’s become more apparent I’m talking to a person with attention or reading disabilities stemming from a lack of social adequecy. You are saddening

me January 26, 2012 at 7:17 am

^^you should not even live in Latin America.

me January 25, 2012 at 8:22 pm

@Roger, I did some research.

The Caucasoid peoples are divided in three groups, termed Aryan (Indo-European), Semitic (Semitic languages), and Hamitic (Berber-Cushitic-Egyptian).

The postulated races include Nordic, Mediterranean, Alpine, Dinaric, East Baltic, Arabid, Turanid, and Armenoid.

What is “white” depends on the person because it is a social construct. There are people who do not consider Italians and Albanians “whites.”

me January 25, 2012 at 8:10 pm

“The Caucasoid peoples are divided in three groups on LINGUISTIC grounds, termed Aryan (Indo-European), Semitic (Semitic languages), and Hamitic (Berber-Cushitic-Egyptian).”

So you are wrong.

Kon March 30, 2011 at 1:45 pm

now it is a media practice. Certainly it is mess.

ciao :-B

Kon March 30, 2011 at 1:05 pm

History of Jews is heavy. He is American- citizen of United States of America.

Kon March 30, 2011 at 11:10 am

Many Jews lived everywhere.

anonym March 23, 2011 at 4:16 pm

i am confused when jewish is stated as ethnicity.

Wtf March 23, 2011 at 4:37 pm

I with the both of you,it mean anything

The Genealogist March 24, 2011 at 12:40 pm

There are 2 main ethnic groups when it comes to Jews. Ashkenazi Jews and Sephardic Jews.

Anonymous March 30, 2011 at 6:35 pm

Sephardic Jews were expelled during the Spanish Inquisition, and now, many of them live in Morocco (like Emmanuelle Chriqui’s parents). Their language is Ladino, which could be described as Juedo-Spanish.

Roger January 25, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Ashkenazi Jews is the name for ethnic Jews in Europe.

me January 25, 2012 at 7:45 pm

Ashkenazi Jews are Caucasian. They are of a separate ethnicity much in the same way Albanians are separate from the Irish, or the Ukrainians are separate from the Italians. However, they are all Caucasian.

Roger January 25, 2012 at 8:14 pm

SMH. Relax, person.

me January 25, 2012 at 8:43 pm

I still have to disagree just like most of the world disagrees with you as well.

The Genealogist March 23, 2011 at 7:01 am

It really annoys me.

Yann March 3, 2011 at 2:56 pm

Lol, Mark zuckerberg is white

Roger January 9, 2012 at 8:05 pm

If Zuckerberg is Jewsish, then he’s of Hebrew descent.

Roger January 25, 2012 at 7:16 pm

Semitic people are Middle Eastern.

me January 25, 2012 at 7:36 pm

What do mestizos have to do with Middle Easterners? They are completely different. Semites are Caucasian.

Roger January 25, 2012 at 7:43 pm

I should’ve elaborated more.

me January 25, 2012 at 7:49 pm

I still have to disagree.

me January 25, 2012 at 7:45 pm

I agree.

me January 25, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Now they are mestizo, the same race as George Lopez?


me January 25, 2012 at 7:53 pm

I changed my mind.

me January 25, 2012 at 7:58 pm

This site is really anti-Caucasian, huh? Now you guys are saying ethnic groups that really are Caucasian are no longer and are the same race as Latin American mestizos.

I give up.

Roger January 25, 2012 at 7:59 pm

That’s not what I said….

me January 25, 2012 at 8:00 pm

the term is not correct and is idiot.

Roger January 25, 2012 at 8:05 pm

That’ll explain that.

me January 25, 2012 at 8:13 pm

for Dasher/Serpent/SparkleTime/Rotten Beauty/me/Hate Me and more, EVERYBODY is white or european,it would be some inferiority complex?
