    Default do arabs really look like average white people( europeans)

    I'm asking the people that live in the middle east because their considered white. I can understand Georgians, and Armenians, and some Persians, but what about Saudi Arabia and Iraq and the countries towards India and Africa. My dad went to kuwait and he said they look like mexicans. I've heard Somalians were considered white too and they look nothing like white people.

    I'm pretty sure there's no consensus on who is considered white and who isn't.

    Arabs are Semitic peoples, like Jews, whilst Persians are Indo-Europeans. I know these terms are technically erronous as these are linguistic terms but they are true nonetheless.

    Iranians, according to the old racialists, are Aryans, i.e. White, whilst Arabs and Jews are not. According to others, however, they are white. It really depends on the psuedo-scientist.

    Arabs are Semetic peoples, so they aren't quite the same as Euros. But they are pretty close I guess, compared to other groups.

    Arabs and Jews have really close ties, they both belong to the same ethnic group.

    Any particular reason you chose the slander physical anthropology as "pseudo-science"?

    Arabs are caucasoid, but not "white" which is a bit of a social category. In terms of how they look, they appear similar to Southern Europeans in craniofacial morphology but are slightly darker.

    Iranians are Indo-Europeans unlike Arabs, but racially both are caucasoid if one uses traditional phenetic classification methods.

    You can "understand" Georgians and Armenians? Those people are from "Caucasian people"(by that I mean from Caucus, not white=Caucasian) group and are pretty much white.

    Arabs and many sub-groups are of semitic peoples. Afro-Asiatic much like the Jews. Some of them do have light skin and do look like whites. But they are not a majority. And who told you they are considered white?
    "Therefore I am not in favour of raising any dogmatic banner. On the contrary, we must try to help the dogmatists to clarify their propositions for themselves. Thus, communism, in particular, is a dogmatic abstraction; in which connection, however, I am not thinking of some imaginary and possible communism, but actually existing communism as taught by Cabet, Dzamy, Weitling, etc. This communism is itself only a special expression of the humanistic principle, an expression which is still infected by its antithesis the private system. Hence the abolition of private property and communism are by no means identical, and it is not accidental but inevitable that communism has seen other socialist doctrines such as those of Fourier, Proudhon, etc. arising to confront it because it is itself only a special, one-sided realisation of the socialist principle."

    Arab today is a primarily linguistic and cultural distinction. Because populations are primarily what they were 1,500 years ago, an "Arab" be can range from so dark as almost black to white enough to be considered European.

    Not necessarily. I believe you fill in with what you identify with. However, people from the Middle East are designated as white.

    What's an average white person?
    A Brit, German, Spaniard and Russian don't really look the same you know.

    Who cares, really.

    edit: Spaniards and Greeks not white? What are they, green? What's so special about being white anyway, most whites spend money trying to get tan, but if you ask them who's white, suddenly only small part of Europe, usually where they're from, is white.
