Robert Joe — That jumped out at me, too. The rest of the argument sounds valid and convincing enough, but one loses a little credibility when using a derogatory term to denounce other derogatory actions. Are say Armenian-Americans aware or annoyed by that kind of usage?
The usurpation of Caucasoid by Caucasian has always annoyed me. I remember reading a piece by Steve Sailer and getting confused by his use of Caucasian. I was so accustomed to the popular usage of the term, that it took me a minute to figure out that he was talking about actual Caucasians.
I think that most people have a sense that the term encompasses the inhabitants of North Africa, Europe, and West Asia. Does anyone really know why terms like Caucasoid, Mongoloid, and Negroid were dumped in favor of geographically derived substitutes: Is it just a case of politically correct squeamishness over terminology that is up front about race?
Which can mean either mean an East Asian or a person with Downs syndrome.
Thus perhaps as a parallel to a Caucasian Caucasian we could have a Mongoloid Mongoloid or Mongoloid Mongolian or etc. But again Mongols are in fact a rather mixed racial group. And what should we call the old peoples like the first Australians, New Guineans Dravidian?
All I see is humans with different percentages of melanin, dark to light. This was never the case 80 years ago and earlier. And lastly, I see the territory of the modern Republic of Armenia and surrounding territories as part of the Armenian Highland rather than the Caucasus or anything else.
I find it annoying as well. But it makes sense. The references to Asians as an ethnicity or race.According to one analysis, every time the unemployment rate goes up 1%, there is a ____% rise in suicide.
