THE ARYAN-DRAVIDIAN DIVIDE

An Aryan and Dravidian race in India is no more real than a north and a south European race. Those who use such terms are misusing language. We would just as well place the blond Swede of Europe in a different race from the darker haired and browner skinned person on southern Italy.

Nor is the Caucasian race the "white" race. Caucasians can be of any color from pure white to almost pure black, with every shade of brown in between. 

The predominant Caucasian type found in the world is the blond-blue-eyed northern European but the black hair, brown-eyed darker skinned Mediterranean type such as we find from southern Europe to north India. 

Similarly the Mongolian race is not yellow. Many Chinese have skin whiter than many so-called Caucasians. In fact of all the races, the Caucasian is the most variable in its skin color. Yet many of the identification forms that people fill out in the world today still define race in term of color.
