That's interesting..I've never seen that definition. It sounds kinda *funny* though...I have light brown skin which I joke is beige b/c...well...it is...I'm a hair darker than my mom (she's Irish/English). And I also obviously have curly hair. But I wouldn't refer to myself as white/caucasian. That seems laughable for me.

I learned that a lot of Indians ID as white a few yrs ago. I was suprised since many of them are a lot darker than me.
