The Race Thread

Postby Green October Z » Tue May 05, 2020 8:24 am

So I am curious, what race do you identify as. I know that this site is based out of Australia and since everything is in English, I would guess that most users are from the English speaking countries where internet access is widespread. As such, I would guess that most people here are White. But, I am still curious as to the actual racial demography here.

I am Southeast Asian of Vietnamese decent.

I'm considered to be apart of the race that is widely considered by certain groups on the Internet and IRL to have destroyed the planet for the millions of years that it has existed solely by existing even though I've had no direct part in doing any of said destruction.

So, white.

I’m white, but I’ve got a little bit of Native American in there too. Nobody in my family knows where it came from, just that it’s from my grandma’s side of the family.

Where is the border for North African/West Asian? Is Turkey white since it is partially in Europe or MENA? What about Iran? And are central asians of iranic heritage Central Asian or MENA?

I don't think it really matters, but I'm white with Celtic-Viking-German descent, with my mother's family coming from Austrian Croatia in the 1700s and my father's side going all the way back to the 12 Tribes, and the Dukes of Normandy.

uh oh!

Stone Age genocide: Vengeful prehistoric invaders who changed Europe FOREVER

A MYSTERIOUS race of invaders who embarked on a “genocidal” killing spree after arriving in Europe thousands of years ago, changing the continent forever, were probably motivated by a desire for vengeance, an archaeologist has said.

The tall, powerful Yamnaya people, who occupied the Eurasian steppe north of the Black Sea and the Caucasus mountains in what is now Ukraine and Russia, arrived in Europe between 5000 and 4000 years ago, colonising huge areas of the continent. In doing so, they wiped out huge numbers of the people already living there - and interbred with the women, with the result that their genetic lineage is still traceable in our DNA today. Professor Kristian Kristiansen of the University of Gothenburg in Sweden, an expert in the ancient people, believes he is beginning to build up a picture of how the situation came to pass.

So many Europeans are of indigenous stock but inherit their language and some genes from ancient invaders?

Various shades of white. I live in the US, and am a direct result of some people coming from different parts of Europe to a former colony that turned emerging Republic.

There are some different ethnicities as well, but they don't seem to hold much relevance besides like trivia information about myself.

Well the mummies found in the Tarim Basin were very tall nordic types so Europids have been all over central asia and those mummies were nordic-type not the brown eyed dark haired but moderately light skinned Yamnaya. I bet the descendants of these people were what came to be known as the "black Germans" because in contrast.. to blonde-blue/green eyed kinds they were "black".
