Why did White Americans steal the word Caucasian?

True Caucasians are people from the Caucasus mountains like Armenians, Azerbaijanis, Georgians, etc. Real Caucasians do not have blonde hair or blue eyes. They look like Kim Kardashian.

So why did White people in the USA call themselves Caucasian and shame the real ones for being to dark-skinned? That would be like Native Americans calling themselves Indian and saying the ones in Asia are too dark to count. Oh wait!

    Same reason some germans stole the name "aryan".

    The idea that humans come in "races" was very useful to justify treating some humans as less-than-humans.

    It wasn't until after WW2 and the failed "lebensborn" eugenics-experiment that scientists discovered DNA and it told them that all humans alive are one-and-the-same race

    O child, they bend the words from bicycle race for a very good reason.

    But they never seem to speak of it down at the chemo wards after stabbing thier girlfriends.

    The english language is in second place for being the most difficult. This is because it has lots of words from lots of languages mixed together.  Lots of words also have change meanings over time.  Like "some" use to only mean "four"! 

    It was not until 400-500 years ago that some people in England even got to have last names. One was born with just their first name. Unless they were royal. 

    How about praying to GOD and asking God to help you with more understanding here?
