    I sincerely apologise if that term is offensive. I genuinely was under the impression that the term " Caucasian " is used to describe white people.

    In fact , the majority of us don't care what we are called , but we have nothing in common with today's Caucasus inhabitants.

    The term dates back to the 19th century , when various false theories about race or ethnic origin were spread. Both , human race or ethnic origin , are words that you no longer like to hear nowadays when it concern human people. Genetically we are all the same , whether black , white or yellow , but if you look very closely into the genome you can see where the people come from , and there are surprises. I don't want to go into details , but to stay with the "Caucasian" of Europe , the majority came a long time ago from Anatolia or Central Asia. We are not too far from the Caucasus.

    Caucasian is not offensive in America, where it is used to describe white people. The term has been used on official forms up until that last 10 years or so.

    Dear Mr Rahman, you were absolutely right!
    Even in modern Hollywood crime movies, they are using this term in police language to describe a person
    You said nothing wrong. (it is either caucasian, negorid, or asian)

    from source:
    https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Caucasian

    Definition of Caucasian
    1: of or relating to the Caucasus or its inhabitants were forced to leave their Caucasian homeland

    2: of, constituting, or characteristic of a race of humankind native to Europe, North Africa, and southwest Asia and classified according to physical features —used especially in referring to persons of European descent having usually light skin pigmentation

    It is my mistake and l sincerely apologise for the use of the improper term . When l was a school boy in Darjeeling , that word " Caucasian " was taught by our school masters to describe white people. You have known me on this community for quite some time . I would never write anything deliberately demeaning about white people. My own niece is marrying an American gentleman from Alabama this year.

    Oh , that is re-assuring . I genuinely was beginning to get concerned that l had used offensive language accidentally .

    Thank you so much for your support . I would never intentionally use any demeaning terminology to describe anyone in this community . It is not who l am . However , if the term is perceived as inappropriate these days , then l will refrain from using it.
