I get the message what you tried to convey.
I just don't like the term Caucasians for us. I find it very very offensive. Let's just keep it for the people of European descent.
a bunch of people can pass for anything but id rather have a Pakistani play Jinnah than a gora- ykwim?
not a fan of this term to describe our people (no matter the technicalities of it all) - As A-we are a very diverse people, so they can't label us under one umbrella term B- I associate this term with Europeans
Orya Maqbool Jan played a colonial officer character with the thickest Pakistani accent ever, I was dead lol
Loosen up, guys. Loosen up!
'Caucasian' is not the same as 'white' and don't get too defensive about using terms which describe people! The number one determinant of 'races' is that when two distinct races mix with each other--like the east Asians or the Africans or the Caucasians (in which I include northwest Indians along with Pakistanis) then their offsprings would show where they came from. A child born between Caucasians would easily be recognized as a Caucascian. However, between Caucasians and Africans or between the east Asians and Caucasicans etc would look different and probably going into grandkids!
I don't know why you guys have such a short fuse?? It is not about trying to 'fit in'. It stating what's in our 'genome' for the millennia! This thread is about 'races' and so it was apt to point out to someone why Jinnah could be easily portrayed by Christopher Lee. Would Denzel Washington play Jinnah? Would Xi Ji Pin play Jinnah? No! Of course Jinnah could have been easily portrayed by many Pakistanis. But how does that take away from Christopher Lee--a great actor--playing Jinnah?
So get off your woke high-horses, take a chill pill and connect to the essence of this thread.
