    Sister maryaam, why do you have to get the wrong side of the stick. It doesn’t make a slightest difference to me whether you call yourself white pink yellow ginger blonde whatever, you are free to say anything!
    Exactly. but there is only two nations that put emphasis on skin colour rather than race or nationality. Don’t be too quick to judge me again because I have two of my own cousins who are blonde with blue eyes. and one of them who is quite young nearly got kidnapped by US soldiers in my country Afghanistan :)
    they all have same/similar background but since some live in hotter places and have got themselves “tanned”they seem to be have gone out of the circle of “white”?!
    Are you out of your mind? Why would a black or any person, when you physically see him and his skin colour, say to a fellow black person that he is black?! Anyway the reason he had said that is probably because that is how you people expect him to describe himself and secondly you were not black yourself there. I am not against anyone referring to themselves by their skin colour or whatever. What I am actually saying is that these racially established movements have gone to such an extent that now their followers cannot distinguish between race and skin colour. Anyway, my core point is this: would you go to people to whom you introduce yourself say that you are “human”? Do you get the logic? Or would you still call me a racist?
    I personally don’t have any problem with no one. But you guessed it so yes I am referring to those two, not the people of course, but the governments.
    And the person representing the country with the biggest contribution to the world is classified as “white”?
    And my whole argument is that they should not be “profiled” by skin colour. Rather by their status and background, so innocent people like you don’t get trapped in between.
    Wasalam

    Bro, I think you missed my whole post. I wasn't saying that classification of people by skin colour is wrong, anyone can describe themselves however they want, but what I wanted to say is that these "classifications" need to be precise so that when we talk, say, about british(englis) it is not directed at other nations like america.
    Anyway, I don't know about you. but in asia people refer to each other by race and tribe etc, but never by their skin colour even if they look the same or not. Even the concept of the "brown" is a western label. you would not see anyone in asian countries calling anyone brown, not from what I have seen anyway.

    Salaam,
    Please do not take this as a racist comment because it is not, but I would like to say few things.
    In today's world the only people who call themselves "white" (rather than ethnicity nationality etc) are in fact the anglosaxons who also name africans as "black", and the rest by their continents. I don't want to get into this but you all know how these classifications came about in history. I live england and I see english people calling themselves "white" while referring to other european people by their nationality. Couple of years ago we had this english lecturer who came to introduce himself to the class, most students being english with exceptions of few europeans and I the only non european, he started his introduction by saying "I am a white british middle class etc etc".
    Hence it is mentalities like this which have created this phenomenon that whatever goes on within these two "superpowers" it is either "white" or none.
    And moreover unfortunately, it IS the political agendas of these anglosaxon governments who have the greatest shares in almost all modern tragedies of the world worldwide.
