Would you consider someone who's half European and half Middle-Eastern to be biracial?

I'm European (Irish-Italian) on my dads' side and Middle-Eastern (Lebanese-Palestinian) on my moms so would I be considered "biracial"?

    • Not necessarily white skinned but Caucasian race, yes. Not all Caucasians are white skinned. Not all white skinned people are Caucasian. Technically "white" is not a race. Caucasian is.

  • Not necessarily. Without more details I'd say no since both of your parents are Caucasian. Your mom is white skinned Caucasian and your dad possibly a bit darker skinned mid eastern Caucasian. You're multicultural or multiethnic maybe. But I dont think biracial.

    Or what are the two "races"? Not the two nationalities, ethnicities or cultures, but the two "races"?

  • Multi-ethnic I guess? Europeans and Middle Easterners are both Caucasian.

  • I would say no, but unless the Nazi's rise again, who really cares about such labels?

    The only situation where it's important is where laws are concerned.

  • Yeah I guess. I know a guy who is half Arab and half Romanian. But he doesn't look Romanian. Maybe 1 or 2 features.

  • Middle Eastern people are Caucasian. So they're technically the same race, just different ethnically.
