Anyway if you’re not following this beautiful blog you should probably get on that.

I like how he looks into the camera and it seems like he’s looking at me ;)
W-what a good photo!
Let’s be honest my Armo ancestors were the babeliest.
Oh my goodness my dad is losing his shit over The Princess and the Frog and it is adorable…

Oh for fuck’s sake, if people don’t stop using the word ‘Caucasian’ when referring to white people I’m going to rename my blog Caucasiandoesnotfuckingmeanwhite.
‘Caucasian’ is a (racist) term incorrectly applied to white people when white people found actual Caucasian skulls (in, you know, Caucasia) which were perfectly shaped and assumed that they belonged to white people when, in fact, they didn’t.
jfc I’m getting tired of explaining this to people.
To me that is the c-word and it is never used by me. According to Wikipedia, Johann Friedrich Blumenbach (a German anthropologist) came up with the term and wrote:
I have taken the name of this variety from Mount Caucasus, both because its neighborhood, and especially its southern slope, produces the most beautiful race of men, I mean the Georgian; and because all physiological reasons converge to this, that in that region, if anywhere, it seems we ought with the greatest probability to place the autochthones (birth place) of mankind.
No. Ya’ll are not the most beautiful race. Wrong answer. But that’s what Caucasian means.
^^ I legit did not know this. Service-y!
You learn something new everyday. Nice!
or are you being sarcastic?
Factual! Example: My dad is white, but his ancestors didn’t come from the Caucasus, so he is therefore not Caucasian. My mom is white and also Caucasian; part of her family comes from the Caucasus.
Here’s a swell tumblr all about the Caucasus! Good times.
Old Essex doodle. My mom was eating salad with goat cheese, and the day before was the first and last time I saw my twice great de facto aunt, Armine.
