Race has always been very vague. There are clear differences between Northern Europeans and Southern Europeans, Northern Asians and Southern Asians, Northern Africans and Southern Africans, etc, yet, most everybody describes everyone through a few basic colors. I always note South Asian vs North Asian... but that's just because I'm Asian.
It's interesting that Europeans have told me before that they find it surprising that Americans don't believe Hispanic people are white!
Anyway, the thing that got me thinking about all of this are these very funny pictures from Playmobil. Please don't take offense to me... Take it to the toy company, if you must.
Black Family.... Notice that the father's collar is popped.
Lol... Asian man with a camera...
They obviously forgot some races such as Native American, Middle Eastern...
