Caucasian is like many terms – as they evolve, we attribute different definitions to them. The term Caucasian was used in the census and was synonymous with white european christian. This evolved into the conventional term for european peoples: latin, germanic, slavic, finnic.
Man is a self-domesticated animal. Domestication is achieved by neoteny and suppression of underclass (genetic load) reproduction by sexual selection and environmental selection.
The primary difference between races (or subspecies depending upon your tolerance for the truth), is that we vary largely by the degree of neoteny (suppression of maturity) vs increase in rate and depth of matureity, and in adaptation to local climates and more importantly – disease gradients.
There are many others including rates of identical twins, variations in cranial size, minor skull and muscle difference, large differences in body scent, variations in the distribution of spatial verbal abilities, succeptibility to certain diseases, and mental illnesses.
However, almost all the meaningful(consequential) differences are variations in one trait: neoteny (domestication) – with east asians the least sexually developed, caucasians in the middle, and then Africans the most and fastest sexually developed. Almost all group differences in social cultural, and political order are caused by this variation. The other significant dimension is the size of our genetic loads (lower and underclasses).
There is little difference in our global elites across the races. But our conflicts come from proximity to one another given the vastly different sizes of our workingl, lower, and underclasses. For example, when we compare IQ differences between races and subraces, we are comparing differences in the size of the classes. In warm climates genetic load survives, and sexual maturity and rates of reproduction increase – and in cold climates where people live indoors in close quarters for many months of the year, and must organize to maintain animals and food over winters, sexual and natural selection reduce the lower classes rapidly.
So given our differences in the rate and depth of sexual maturity, and the difference in the size of our underclasses, this creates groups that display different behavior, and conflict over what acceptable behavior is, and conflict over the commons and institutions we desire.
There are three or four surviving races (subspecies): West Eurasian, African, and Asian – and the fourth is the austronesian remainder of early african migrations.
West eurasians include everyone who isn’t african, (iranic-dravidian), east asian, or austronesian.
Genetically, morphologically/phenotypically, civilizationally, culturally we separate the west eurasian people into post-glacial proto-peoples: the southern branch of north african, semitic (marsh arab, afro-asiatic), the eastern branch: turkic, and the indo-european branch: european, iranic, anatolian (lost), and the iranic branch integrated (lost) in admixture in india.
We use ‘Caucasian’ as a synonym for europeans from spain to the urals, an south to the caucuses mountains.
However, in practice we use it as synonymous for european christendom, and ‘white’ synonymous with european christendom -excluding the people of the caucuses.
Since the greeks, southern italians, and Sardianins are remnants of the anatolian migration we include them as europeans and caucasians.
