    AWTA.

    Generally, people from north India (and Pakistan) are Indo Aryan. Normally, these days the term white refers to those with relatively European pure Aryan features (pink skin, blond, brown, or red hair). Generally when you get nearer to the middle east, you see a darker shade of skin, even though in many places (especially young children), children can virtually be indistinguishable from a "european" child. Even among the Bedouin and Afghanistan, this happens. And in places like Armenia, you can see mixtures in terms of features.


    Generally what matters is popular usage, and in such usage, Indians, Pakistanis and Middle Easterners are not considered white. Armenians and people from that geographical area usually are.

    The question is - does it matter what people see me/you/them as?

    I'm North Indian, by being 'white' or 'brown' does that make me any less of a person? Does that change the way I live my life? Does it prevent me from living my life the way I want to?

    No, No and No

    middle eastern people places like Lebenon, syria, tukey, northern iraq are definatly white, yes they are not europeans but they are still white. Iranians can be divided in half half, most southern iranians i know off have tanned skin, but northern iranians are white, same with northern afghanistan and pakistan. In my country if you go around places like Chitral and Gilgit in northern pakistan, many people even have nordic european features
