Re: Are Algerians considered 'white' or 'arab'?
I have an Algerian friend who says her family has lived there over 1000 years. She is a mixture of French, Arab and Palestinian Jewish (not to be confused with the European ones) If you didn't know where she was from, she appears more French than anything else.

We are Berber, African & Mediterranean, not Arab, as we aren't a Semite people and we don't even speak arabic.

Isn't this crystal clear? Or do you lack common sense?

It'd be coming down to saying that Persians are Arabs because of their colonial past in Persia.

That's it.



I'm having an argument with a leftie muslim apologist about the man who killed the Jewish kids and the soldiers in France. He's saying the man's white, and I argued that he's Algerian and not white.

So now I'm being called a bigot and shit because I'm saying Algerians aren't white. I thought they were Arabs, he's saying they're caucasian. Who's right?

Re: Are Algerians considered 'white' or 'arab'?
Funny to see that you guys saying algerians are arabs infact it's wrong ! , algerian supposed to be a mixed race , most of them are ottomans which includes Romanians,Bulgarians,Serbians,Slavs,turks,spanjards,italians,​albanians,greeks,macedonians,israelites,romans and last but not least arabs which these race plays a keyrole to arabic existence !

the biggest fact in algeria they deny that they are european-white-caucasian because they are mixed , they have various races on their dna , some of them have aryan bloodlines which supposed to be very rare in algeria , the berbers lives a very long time before the roman invasion !

one thing i can't tell is that adolf hitler is a berber too , he is a descendent of the algerian-berber people

i am an algerian with eastern european roots, most people here in belgium they called me a slavic or a russian instead of calling me an algerian

Algeria was also a part of the byzantine empire !
so it is a mixed race with different heads and faces !

americans are similar too with mixed backgrounds

yodawhatever

Re: Are Algerians considered 'white' or 'arab'?
You all are confusing race and ethnicity. A Caucasian person does not necessarily have ethnic roots in the Caucasus mountains! And a 'Caucasian' can be any shade from albino to dark brown. Does 'whiteness' REALLY matter to anyone? My Algerian friend has olive skin and self-identifies as White.

To compare, how does this statement sound? "He's saying the man's White, and I argued that he's American and not White."

On another note, Algeria has been occupied and invaded bazillions of times over the eons, and though the population is originally mostly Berber, many other ethnicities and shades of skin are part of the whole mix. Just like America.

If you don't like someone else defining your race or ethnicity, why try to do it for those you know little about? Just ask directly, then believe what they say. In a global population, race is irrelevant. We're all Homo sapiens, just a very few genes away from monkeys!

From Dictionary dot com:

Cau·ca·sian
adjective
1.
Anthropology . of, pertaining to, or characteristic of one of the traditional racial divisions of humankind, marked by fair to dark skin, straight to tightly curled hair, and light to very dark eyes, and originally inhabiting Europe, parts of North Africa, western Asia, and India: no longer in technical use.
2.
of or pertaining to the Caucasus mountain range.
3.
of or related to the non-Indo-European, non-Turkic languages of the Caucasus region.

Papadom, am Algerian myself and i assume that you must be Kabyle just reading your post. You Berbers think that the whole people of Algeria are Berbers but you seem to forget about the Arab invasion. I am Algerian Arab descendent and am not a Berber. My people came from Arabia during the invasion of what we used to call "jezirat al maghrib" where Berbers where already living. So i am an Arab and a Semite by the way.
You Berbers should stop trying to make people believe that you are the only people in Algeria! thank you

Papadom, if we don't speak Arabic then you will have to tell me what is our official language??? Lmfao
Our official language is Modern Standard Arabic (literary Arabic) and most people speak an Arabic derived dialect called Darja.
Ah ces beurs...
