Don’t use Caucasian for White people

It’s wrong on every level and you sound outdated.

Tell me if your humours are balanced next. How about some phlogiston?

Forensics and gene research also show it’s misleading.

“Blumenbach’s Caucasians weren’t even strictly white or European, as the term is commonly used today.”

Indians, for example, are Asian, not White. DNA tests exist.
Even the SJWs agree with me on this.

“But “Caucasian” is an erroneous term. And, although many people use it to avoid sounding racist, the continued usage of this term actually perpetuates racism and Eurocentrism.”

The science is just plain false.

“It’s “highly unlikely” that white people came out of the Caucasus region in Eurasia.”

It’s literally wrong.

There are discussions of how white Jews are, exclusively by the term Caucasian.

“Later laws limited the number of immigrants from certain countries, restrictions which were in part targeted at Jews. But unlike Asian and African immigrants in the late 19th century, Jews retained a claim to being “Caucasian,” meaning they could win full citizenship status based on their putative race.”

Sneaky.

What can we do to change it? We need to acknowledge that the word “Caucasian” is still around and that its continued use is problematic. We should use terms that are more accurate, such as “European-American.” Doing so would at least be consistent with the use of descriptive terms like “African-American,” “Mexican-American,” and others that signify both a geographical and an American ancestry.”

I agree.
