Freebase

  1. White people

    White people is a racial classification specifier, depending on context used for people of Caucasian ancestry. The contemporary usage of "white people" or a "white race" as a large group of populations contrasting with "black", "colored" or non-white originates in the 17th century. It is today particularly used as a racial classifier in multiracial societies, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Brazil, and South Africa. Pragmatic description of populations as "white" in reference to their skin color predates this notion and is found in Greco-Roman ethnography and other ancient sources. Notions of different races, including of a European race or races, thus arguably pre-exist the 17th century, meaning that the rise of the term "white" does not necessarily signify the first emergence of European racial identity or identities.
