It depends on one’s definition of “White”. She is definitely Caucasian in every sense of the word. According to US legal definition, she is “White” being a descendant of people from the regions West of/and including the Middle East. Thus most Arabs, Persians, (and North Africans) are defined as such.
Misak Ohanes Papazian was born in Erzurum, Turkey.
She also looks kinda Middle Eastern.
