What group do ‘Indians’ belong to?
If you mean ethnic background, scientifically there are the three main ethnicities in the study of anthropology: Caucasoid, Mongoloid, and Negroid. North Indians belong to the Caucasoid classification along with Arabs and Europeans. Regardless of skin color, notice how Indians have the same facial features. They have the caucasian noses, wavy hair, thin lips, etc. South Indians are Australoid which is similar to Caucasoid. In some northeastern parts there are Mongoloids. In the very southern tip, there are some Negroid looking people. The majority of Indians are Caucasoid and Australoid.
Very interesting. I’d have to verify with a study or article on the matter, but I’m going to trust the person this information came from for now. Update on it later if it changes. It’s interesting how classifications of races/ethnicity vary according to several factors. Sometimes I think the way some people classify others is really off, even today.
