I kinda dislike the term Caucasian. I think it's kind of silly to lump say, Morrocans in with the Swedish. They probably should change it to 'European' and put a new category for Middle Eastern/North African or better yet, simply do it by ethnic group rather than by continent so nobody gets offended.

Just about every European group is pretty americanized, unless they are more recent immigrants.

Well it says White or Caucasian. Nothing about "American".
