Interesting thoughts, erasure...

There was a terrorist attack in Belarus some days ago. Apparently perpetrated by Belarus citizens. That country is in trouble too...

At First, we have to clarify what "white" countries mean: IMO countries like Iraq, Turkey, Morocco and even Greece aren't "white" compared to Poland, Lithuania, Denmark etc.

Greeks are whites... And so are the Portuguese and the Spanish...

Most people with Y-DNA from Haplogroup R1 are white. Both R1a and R1b.

I hear very controversial things about Belarus, yet EU indeed is very tough on
"Lukashenko the dictator," while at the same time quite diplomatic towards Putin...

ALL Europeans = white. Except for Turkey, because Turkey is "the sick man of Europe."
How bout' that?

Many Turks are white, caucasian. Many are Asiatic. None are European except for perhaps a tiny portion that live on the Dacian side of the Bosphorus.

A good question:

Is a Turkish person born in the city of Edirne (the ancient Adrianople), an European?

I think yes, because a Greek person born just 23 kilometers south, in the city of Orestiada, is an European.

As to me - Moldova.

As to me - white countries end at Russia and Greece.

The results for many poor countries are skewed because most of the money is in the hands of a relatively small ruling class and their cronies. Those results cannot be compared to a country with more even distribution of income.

This, of course, is not absolute, but something to keep in mind when comparing countries.

Look to this picture of people in a bazar in the city of Edirne, Turkey (23 kliometers from Orestiada, Greece):




People look white to me...
