the original monk who came up with "race" came up with 4: Caucasoid, Negroid, Mongoloid, and Aboriginoid. Indians, Arabs, basically brown people fall under Caucasoid. North Indians are descendants of Aaryans that came in from the afgan region

I knew the categories but I had always assumed that since Indians are included in the Asian group that they would also be in the Mongoloid group- I guess I have now learned otherwise. I probably should have taken an anthropology class at some point.

Even though technically I'm a "doctor" (juris doctor), I put down Masters.

Thanks. I was wondering how to handle you guys in the poll, and I thought you would come in as Masters, but you make a very good point for PhD as well.
