Has ‘Caucasian’ Lost Its Meaning?

edited July 2013 in R & R (Religion and Race)
AS a racial classification, the term Caucasian has many flaws, dating as it does from a time when the study of race was based on skull measurements and travel diaries. It has long been entirely unmoored from its geographical reference point, the Caucasus region. Its equivalents from that era are obsolete — nobody refers to Asians as “Mongolian” or blacks as “Negroid.”

The use of Caucasian to mean white was popularized in the late 18th century by Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, a German anthropologist, who decreed that it encompassed Europeans and the inhabitants of a region reaching from the Obi River in Russia to the Ganges to the Caspian Sea, plus northern Africans. He chose it because the Caucasus was home to “the most beautiful race of men, I mean the Georgians,” and because among his collection of 245 human skulls, the Georgian one was his favorite wrote Nell Irvin Painter, a historian who explored the term’s origins in her book “The History of White People.”

    Whiteness is becoming less important.

    What's becoming more important is that you're not black. All non-blacks are becoming the same.

    Okay, ethered. Damn, it took that long for that book to get that much exposure shit. They really don't want to hear the truth. I had to deal with that saturday and sunday with the huge amount of denial. Not saying YOU are a bad person, but we ain't as bad as you think we are and YOUR people aren't nowhere near an angelic people and closer to something you want to disassociate yourself with and want to associate us with.

    mid-14c., from Medieval Latin barbarinus (source of Old French barbarin "Berber, pagan, Saracen, barbarian"), from Latin barbaria "foreign country," from Greek barbaros "foreign, strange, ignorant," from PIE root *barbar- echoic of unintelligible speech of foreigners (cf. Sanskrit barbara- "stammering," also "non-Aryan," Latin balbus "stammering," Czech blblati "to stammer").
