"White" is a color. "Caucasian" is the definition of "Race"
Technically the vast majority of North Africans (Berbers in the West, Arabs and Semites in the East) are "Caucasian".
In the Middle East Semites (such as Jordanians, Palestinians, Israeli's, Egyptians) are all Caucasian.
Iranians (Persians) are Caucasians.
Arabs are Caucasian
Turks are Caucasian
And even Indians are in fact a variety of Caucasian.
Technically.. according to DNA research. There being 3 major genetic families, Caucasian, Asian and African.

How were the Original Moors white when the meaning of moor means black people. Lol really? I'm suprised at myself for even entertaining that statement. Have you ever read "The Golden Age of The Moors?" Have you ever seen a movie titled "Hidden Colors?" I'm sure you haven't. The Moors were from Africa and were Black. This is a fact of history not an opinion. Again the more you all speak you show and prove the lack of intelligence. Lol hilarious.

you guys are still trying to reference history that far back, huh? get with the real subject at hand
Germanic peoples were known to the Romans since the second century B.C.E. and despite many differences, the two groups did co-exist relatively peacefully. Many Germans had been allowed to cross the border, and they settled as farmers and slaves. Some even became soldiers in the imperial army. The Germans admired what was worthy in Roman civilization and the Romans admired the physical strength and the simplicity of values of the Germans. The Roman historian Tactius (c. C.E. 55 - 117) provides one of the best descriptions of the Germans in his Germania.
The Visigoths, led by a capable king named Alaric, turned from Constantinople and proceeded south, sacking Greece, and then turned westward toward the Adriatic. They attacked Italy and sacked Rome in 410, an event that deeply shocked the inhabitants of the empire. Under Alaric's successors, the Visigoths moved across Gaul. They settled in Aquitaine in 418 and thus established the first Germanic kingdom on Roman territory. The Visigoths then moved into Spain, where they founded a second kingdom at Toledo that lasted until the Muslim invasions of the eighth century.
The Nordic race is one of the racial subcategories into which the Caucasian race was divided by anthropologists in the first half of the 20th century. People in this category were described as having blond or brown hair, light colored eyes, aquiline noses and tall stature, and were considered to predominate in countries of Northern Europe and some parts of Southern European countries (Northern Italy etc.) due to the Great Migration. The notion is today considered ideological rather than scientific.
Spanish Queen Isabella I of Castile shows "Nordic" characteristics: blonde hair, blue eyes, and pale skin
