He looks American - but that could be just because of the shorts and baseball cap and tshirt, etc. I always wonder why security cameras in this day and age are of such poor quality. My pre-smartphone cellphone took clearer pictures.

He was reportedly carrying a U.S. passport and Michigan driver's license, but the press reports I've seen this morning seem to think those may have been fakes. And I think anyone looks American wearing that get-up. (Not really what I would have chosen for our national dress, but there it is.)

We'll see. A lot of information will be coming out the next couple of days.

The DL was totally a fake. No state will issue a DL to a non-resident.

In case anyone doesn't know, Arabs are Caucasians, just like Jews.

I've been thinking about that point, which Destro made as well, and have come to the opinion that he only looks American to Americans, since young people in many other places in the world (at least in my travels and experience) dress exactly the same way. Although, I will grant that this uniform is America's unfortunate gift to the world.

Granted, that. And I would not be surprised to hear a person dressed like that, in an airport, speak just about any language there is.

And a guy dressed like that, in an airport, just sort of blends into the walls. Which I assume was the point. Who looks twice at another guy in shorts, sneakers and ball cap, lounging around?

He looked like he had very long hair. Not exactly the style these days without a ponytail. Maybe in Bulgaria?

Uh, Jews come in all colors. Trust me on this one.

Well, since I see that it irritates you when someone tries to educate you rather than simply excoriate you after you make a blatantly stupid, offensive, even bigoted, remark in public, I'll just post this:

You lost me there. What's bigoted or offensive about what I said, in public? Obviously you have some perception up your ass, but for the life of me I don't know what it is.

If you think race means the same as ethnicity, be my guest.

Your reaction is way out of bounds on this, Flavia. He's correct as far as racial classifications go:

Caucasian race: Classification

Conceived as one of the great races, alongside Mongoloid and Negroid, it was taken to consist of a number of "subraces". The Caucasoid peoples were usually divided in three groups on linguistic grounds, termed Aryan (Indo-European), Semitic (Semitic languages) and Hamitic (Berber-Cushitic-Egyptian). [...]

[Link: en.wikipedia.org...]

Merriam-Webster definition of Caucasian:

Definition of CAUCASIAN

1 : of or relating to the white race of humankind as classified according to physical features
2 : of or relating to the white race as defined by law specifically as composed of persons of European, North African, or southwest Asian ancestry

—Caucasian noun

[Link: www.merriam-webster.com...]

Also see:

Cau·ca·sian
adj.

1. a. Anthropology Of or being a human racial classification distinguished especially by very light to brown skin pigmentation and straight to wavy or curly hair, and including peoples indigenous to Europe, northern Africa, western Asia, and India. See Usage Note at race1. [...]
