    If you're from north Africa (Libya), are you considered white? I have grandparents that are dark as night and others that are white as snow.

    i know wikipedia might be viewed suspiciously by some but check this out

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_%28United_States_Census%29

    so, i think even a dark skinned libyan is considered white by the US census bureau. I actually read about a dark skinned Egyptian being considered white statistically in his state. :laugh:

    to answer your question, it depends on where (i.e. what part of the world) you ask the question.

    IMO the whole race thing is pretty crap.

    Hi there..
    Just to give you an advise on the Race matter.
    In USA and Canada.. Middle Eastern (Arab) are considered White according to race regulations.

    In UK you are considered a North African :)
    Hope this Help
    Cheers
