yes, you’re racist. i’m talking to you, “yes, you’re racist,” because apparently you can’t fucking do your research. caucasian does not equal white, even though white people (and you, i guess) like to pretend that it does. i don’t blame you for not picking up on this, i blame a society dominated by white western europeans who for centuries have made it their business to oppress and erase people of color, a group to which many caucasians belong. i’ll take it you’re not well-read at all informed on caucasian history (and i’m not going to do that job for you) so let me just point you to the many, many non-white ethnic groups of the caucasus: the armenians, the azeris, the kurds, the turks, and yes, the chechens. though dzhokhar and tamerlan tsarnaev are white-passing chechens, they are chechens nonetheless. to deny their ethnic and cultural “otherness,” as defined by centuries of white supremacy, is racist and islamophobic. educate yourself before you pretend to know anything about the caucasus.
