there are some white turks and there are some white turks, just like anywhere else.
Arabs are part of the White Race, so yes
why do we need to consider ourselves "white or not"?
If i am over 90% white. Than yes.
I love how everyone is trying to bait us by typing “turks are arabs” at least add something your own to the sentence guys.
kurds = brown
turks = white, not as white as a nordic, not as brown as a middle eastern
like %80-85 of the people in the region where i live is actually quite white or whitish but i wouldn't call myself white
Some Turks are white, some are tanned. It depends on the person.
Those races depending on skin colour are not that important to classify ppl, but in USA.
Being Turk means your ancestors have taken part in the founding Turkish Republic ( definition by Atatürk). So any race is allowed to be a Turk, where kurd-rooted ones are brown, balkan-rooted ones are white af like me, and middle asia-rooted ones are rather yellowish.
But here is that timurid or mongolid phenotypical races. Those are white with round eyes or Asian eyes.
My skin is pretty white. But I dont wanna define myself as white nor european or middle eastern. Don't wanna involve any racist shit. You can call me human.
we usually call ourselves just "turks"
we dont care whether we are white or whatever
if you consider being white as one of you then no, but you have some white skinned turks and brown skinned
we are already white mr.MF
a question expected from an idiot american .
When they see someone with Turkish passaport then they think this person is Turk as ethnically, but actually not. Our Kurdish citizens are usually brown, and Turkish people are white but of course not as much as nordic countries.
I live in states. I dont feel like white. When i talk with the people they say i am like eastern europian (balkans) . Thats what i feel.
there is moon and star on their flag
ofc arabic and muslim
I'm kinda like Nordic. White, dark yellow hair and green eyes. Maybe Slav.
We dont care about our or somebody's skin color dude. You dont decide your skin color when you born but i see you decided being d1ck about that . You should stop it as well :)
some look rather brown some look rather white who cars
turks have different skin colours since we are pretty mixed
half mongolian half european
This convo is soo irrelevant.
The thing is, Turkey's population is pretty mixed in terms of ethnicity. You can find pretty pale skinned people or you can find black people (a bit more rare but still there). Our population has people from the entire spectrum, it's not easy to say Turks are white or not in this case. If you go to western Turkey you would find many white people, however go to more eastern side of the country and you'll find tanned skinned people more. Dividing people into groups is only going to make people fight here with stupid and half assed arguments, especially when the subject is Turks. If you genuinely wonder the answer to your question, there's no clear answer i'm afraid. The best answer i can give is the skin color depends on the region.
Ottomans just wanted to be like us Europeans. They wanted to paint, they wanted to read, they wanted to play the piano. So we destroyed them in WW I
