That is exactly how it should be. I see many people consider Iranians or anyone middle eastern brown and if they do it purely based on skin color that's called being uneducated. Most middle easterners do not look anything close to brown.
True but I guess because of the proximity towards pakistan some percentage of the population will have similar features or looks.
There is no such a thing called mid easterner or mid eastern race. Mid east is just a geographic term created by americans who usually tend to classify people with regions instead of language families.Living in same region doesn't make us same.Israelis, arabs, iranians and Turks may all live in mid east but they dont share any relation with each other.If you mean arabs by mid easterner then they are indeed brown. Non brown looking people in mid east only comes from non arab countries of mid east like Turkey, iran, israel etc. I personally dont even consider non arab countries in mid east as a part of mid east.Mid easterner term should only used for arabs.I am from Turkey. I would never call myself as mid easterner because I am not an arab.
I don't consider Iran and Turkey as Part of the middle east. But i don't consider those from the Middle East (Arabic speaking countries) brown.
Do you ever see an arab? They are indeed brown.Even the lighest arabs in syria and lebanon looks very brown to me. Here in turkey we have 4 million syrian refugees. They are darker than anyone in the street here and yet sometimes even we Turks dont get considered as white but I agree about non arab countries such as Israel , Turkey and Iran is not a part of mid east.
I live in London. I have arab friends. I know their skin tone is brown but whenever I hear brown, most of us, or myself think of Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka etc.
By brown I mean all people with brown skin tone.I am aware that indians, pakistanis etc. are not related to arabs even tho both have darker features and shouldn't be get considered as a part of same race. Also that was my point. I think those classifications based on region, skin color etc. is wrong. All low iq American bulls. hit. People should get classified based on language families.There is no such a thing called white race, brown race, black or Asian race etc. Not all europeans related to each other, not all Africans related to each other. List goes on you name it. There is only language families and people should get classified by them.
Agreed 100%. Luckily I'm from London which is very diverse and multi cultural so I'm relatively aware about most regions.
Iranians speaks Iranic branch of indo european languages so they should get clasified with only other iranic people like afghans, tajiks etc.I as a Turk I speak a language who belongs to Turkic branch of Ural Altaic language family so I should and want to get classified with only other Turkic people like azeris, kazakh, krygiz, uzbek etc.Arabs should only get classified with other arabs.list goes on you name it.
I get what you mean. Don't think its possible to categorise according to the language in India or Pakistan. Therre just too many different languages there lol. But its a good idea of categorisation you've mentioned.
