    correction; Caucasian/white is not an ethnicity, it’s a racial classification, if we’re going to start using Caucasian as an ethnicity then we’re going to have to use negroid/black and mongoloid/yellow, which all say nothing about peoples heritage. It should be changed to European, as I think it’s a safe bet that the white in him is from someone of a European bloodline rather than a middle eastern one.
