I was just wondering what are the poorest "white" countries in the world, just for curiosity.

By "white" country I mean countries where more than 80% of the population are "Caucasians".

By "poorest" I mean the countries with the lowest GDP per capita.

I did some research on List of countries by GDP (nominal) per capita - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and I found some numbers:



Country - GDP per capita (US$)

Moldova - 1,503

Ukraine - 3,002

Macedonia - 4,634

Serbia - 5,262

Belarus - 5,607

Bulgaria - 5,955


Is this list correct?


(Please no racism in this thread, it's just about economic and geographic curiosity)

Good point. I did not notice Albania in the list at the first time I analyzed the Wikipedia article.


Albania has a GDP per capita of 3,661 dollars. It's between Ukraine and Macedonia.

Yes, and I forgot Bangladesh. Arabs and Dravidians are absolutely strictly Caudasian.

Western Sahara is down there, too, although arguably not a sovereign country. India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan would go somewhere on the list, too.

And Ethiopia, Somalia and Eritrea.

"The term Caucasian race (also Caucasoid, Europid, or Europoid) has been used to denote the general physical type of some or all of the populations of Europe, North Africa, the Horn of Africa, West Asia, Central Asia and South Asia."---Wikipedia

Also:

Besides comprising the majority of the Y DNA in Somalis, the E1b1b1a (formerly E3b1a) genetic haplogroup also makes up a significant proportion of the paternal DNA of Ethiopians, Sudanese, Egyptians, Berbers, North African Arabs, as well as many Mediterranean and Balkan Europeans.

Somali people - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Very interesting information. Thank you. But isn't E1b1b1a some kind of "semitic" haplogroup which entered Europe during the Arab expansion in the Middle Ages?


** EDIT **

The answer for my question above is NO.

"Haplogroup E1b1b1, mainly in the form of its E1b1b1a2 (E-V13) sub-clade reaches frequencies above 40% around the area of Kosovo. This clade is thought to have arrived in Europe from western Asia either in the later Mesolithic, or the Neolithic."
