OK, sounds simple enough. So a person in 500 B.C. would easily know
if he or she were white by your standards. They would ask "am I in
Northern Europe?" If they were, they were white. (What was the
demarcation line for "Northern" Europe?)

So how does someone of TODAY know if they're "white"? How do you
or Hate, or Teri know you're "white"? Are you *assuming* that your
ancestors came from "Northern" Europe, or were you actually able to
trace your family tree back that far?
