are people from India black?

These concepts are socially constructed and have been given much weight. What are your thoughts?

I beleive that the forefathers of the Indian people are CAUCASIANS from the same line as the ARYAN people (?).

They are descended off the Aryan bloodline though, regardless of color.

Indian people I've known have told there are two basic racial groups in India: Indo-Aryans who are related to Persians and Europeans and Dravidians who are their own unique race. Nery dark/black Indians are usually Dravidians.

Most Indians identify with the color brown not black or white.

I had to do a report on this...Evidence shows that they are "negroid" people...In fact old historical artifacts show it over n over. Im just not sure how exactly they changed into how they look today.

To my understanding Pakistan is "not" an Arab country. But even if they were, I do beleive that ARABS are also of the CAUCASIAN race.

Neither India nor Pakistan are in the middle east; they're in Asia. And neither country has a large Arab population.

I never said the middle east wasn't in Asia. I said India and Pakistan are in Asia, not in the middle east; all muslim countries aren't in the middle east

HAVE ANY OF YALL BEEN EDUCATED ON THE EAST AFRICAN SLAVE TRADE?

2ND ARABS ARE NOT A REAL RACE THERE ARE BLACK ARABS AND WHITE ARABS


INDIA, PAKISTAN ARE ASIAN COUNTRIES, THEREFORE THEY ARE ASIAN PEOPLES

NOT ALL INDIANS ARE OF NEGROID DESCENT EVEN IF THEY WERE THEY WOULD BE LABELED AS!

SOMALIANS ARE BLACK AFRICANS SOME WITH SOME KIND OF ARAB ADMIXTURE BUT MANY MAY SAY THEY ARE ARABS CAUSE THEY ARE MUSLIM THATS THE WAY THINGS GO OVER THERE.

INDIANS DON'T FOR THE MOST PART LIKE ARABS!

There are a very small percentage of India that have black ancestry. They have at the most 5% of African ancestry which varies amoung the sub populations.

Interesting stuff.

Indians aren't black. They're mostly Caucasoid and light to medium brown skinned except in Souther states like Tamilnadu and Kerala state.

spanish? i don't think so, those englishmen, women are probably stupid and whateva color u are you probably are olive skinned not brown or tannish im brown actually! people like mexicans call themselves brown but they are nothing but tan skinned.

don't get me wrong there are many brown colors but i think people should use that accurate.

>>>>>hell no you are asian but go to asian avenue.com and ask the hmong chinese lao and etc are indians considered asian and what a asian look is? i never knew that asians were that hateful to african americans from the crap i ish i read but o-well thats life

In India, they still practice a "caste" system, right?

Is that why every India person I've met so far, has more than your average arrogant and egotistic attitude than the average person?

Does it have anything to do with me being "Mexican" & outside their caste?
