  1. Poll: IMO 50% of Turks can pass in Southern Europe,...

    IMO 50% of Turks can pass in Southern Europe, typically or atypically. But even the ones that look MENA are not dark-skinned at all, just dark-featured.

    As for demographic documentation, in both...
  2. I would say Russians specifically are more...

    I would say Russians specifically are more distant from the other Slavs yes. Most deviation from Proto-Slavic and they were the only Slavs to colonize and rule over other lands. All other Slavs are...
  3. Slavic is simply a linguistic affiliation nothing...

    Slavic is simply a linguistic affiliation nothing more. Hungarians are not Slavs, no matter how they look.
  4. 30-35% of Turkey is of Balkan descent. Albanian...

    30-35% of Turkey is of Balkan descent. Albanian descent alone is over 5 million. Bosnian descent is around 1 million.
  5. Yes Russians are superior to other Slavs. They...

    Yes Russians are superior to other Slavs. They were a colonizing force not doormats.
  6. Poll: Well Russians were the only Slavs to conquer...

    Well Russians were the only Slavs to conquer non-Slavic peoples, so yes, they are distinct in that history. All the other Slavs were either being conquered by Turks (Yugoslavs) or used as a wedge...

    MENA women pass better in Europe than men do for some reason I've noticed.

    Poll: Always seemed far more Central European than...

    Always seemed far more Central European than truly Eastern IMO. From a Balkan perspective they are definitely Western.
  9. Levantines and coastal North Africans.

    Levantines and coastal North Africans.
  10. Poll: Why do people think Turks are so unpassable in...

    Why do people think Turks are so unpassable in Southern Europe? A lot of North Africans I've seen can pass in Southern Europe, let alone Turks.

    One of the harder Slavic languages, lots of weird stress/pronounciation rules, but the plus is that it's spoken in Central Asia/Mongolia. By far outnumbers the speakers of any other Slavic language.

    I wouldn't say the excluding factor is skin color. I'd say facial features is where the real "othering" takes place.

    Poll: Compared to actual Middle Eastern countries south...

    Compared to actual Middle Eastern countries south of them, I'd say Turkey is pretty European. They always felt more Mediterranean to me than Arab.
  14. Poll: Honestly I would say the country is truly at a...

    Honestly I would say the country is truly at a crossroads. The geography can differ significantly depending on where you are. The south feels a lot like Iraq (very flat, pure sand) while the north...

    Turks being "Orientals" as nothing to do with...

    Turks being "Orientals" as nothing to do with Europe is about as convincing as the case that is made for Hungary. They are also non-European in origin (linguistically). The only difference with...
  16. Poll: I'd say more Middle Easterners could pass in...

    I'd say more Middle Easterners could pass in South Asia than vice versa. Most Indians could rarely pass anywhere outside of India.
  17. Well Persians are Indo-Europeans so they are...

    Well Persians are Indo-Europeans so they are lingustically closer to South Asians than they are to Arabs. Aside from Islam, they are quite different from Semitics.
  18. IMO we belong to both, we have elements of both...

    IMO we belong to both, we have elements of both spheres in our culture. Balkans is a unique region.

    But when I really observe the way of life of East Slavs I say we're more Southern European....

    Lightest - Levant, coastal Maghreb. Darkest - Gulf + Iraq, inland North Africans

    It's in the facial structure. MENA have a wide nose bridge and the nose "slopes" outwards, giving the eyes a sleepy look to them. It's a very distinct look, and probably fits better in India/Pakistan...

    Depends on the severity of the features. The threshold for a "white Caucasian" is pretty low from a black or Asian person's POV.

    Well West Slavs look closer to Central Europeans and more like typical white people, while East Slavs and especially Russians have a lot more Mongoloid input from my observation.

    Balkans is more Southern than Eastern IMO. Especially countries like Albania, Greece, Montenegro, Macedonia, are Southern Europe not Eastern Europe. "Eastern" to me is East Slavs and maybe Poland.

    Left-wing collectivism, because if it's badly motivated everyone suffers. In theory it's well-intentioned but in practice it harms more people than right-wing collectivism.

    Turks are white people, but the problem is that they are perceived to be a brown nation due to being Muslim. I know Turks who look and are treated like any other white dudes. But when you hear about...
