    Default Are South Asians Caucasian?

    There are a ton of ethnic groups in India. Are they Caucasian or at least some of them?

    Is it true India was ruled by a light-skinned elite in the past (not talking about British colonisation).



    Are Afghans, Pakistanis, Indians Caucasian? Please discuss.

    To me, most Indians are really dark-skinned but their facial features differ greatly from those of Mongoloids. Perhaps Indians from the north are both light-skinned and Caucasian regarding facial features.

    DNA testing companies (23AndMe, etc.) should create new categories within South Asia. South Asian is too broad.

    If you define Caucasian as west eurasian then no, they are mixed. Genetically they model like mixed race samples.

    Imo, Indians are like 50% Caucasoid to me.

    Afghanis and Pashtuns are mostly Caucasoid, like 90%.

    The average Indian looks low casta with significant Australoid features.

    Maybe Southern Indians do. Dravidians live there and apparently some SSAs arrived there. Indo-Aryans lean more towards the Caucasian side of the spectrum or so it's said.
