    Ok, Im O+, half caucasian, half I dont know what category.
    I only just found out this year, after years of being asked by Japanese and Korean friends. They all told me what they thought my blood was, and low and behold they were right!
    Apparently O and A are the perfect match
    B people can tend to be a little crazy, there is a movie in Korea called "My boyfriend is B type" since then any person who is B, gets sheepish and doesnt like to say.
    My boyfriend is Asian O+ alos, but I dont know if thats a good thing or not.
    When I was in Cambodia, I gave blood, it was the first time, and since there are so many O people out there, I dont know that I will do it again.

    I punched in at the top of the list; although I also am cautious with this 'race' thing, from a scientific point of view. Also, I am positive with that A. The lady I'm married to is O; plus or minus, I don't know, but we have two children with A and one with O--if my memory serves me well. I'll check.

Like it says in this articles based on wikipedia's article;
    I wouldn't consider Arabs as Caucasians, but Iranians yes. Some Arabs have mixed Caucasian blood, especially in North Africa, but that's it.

    As for "Indians", it depends on their skin colour, as India is a mix of Caucasian (Aryans) and black-skinned Dravidians. Usually people from Brahmin families are more Caucasian. If an Indian has fair skin and fair eyes (blue, grey...), then they are Caucasian (the eye colour is a sure proof of quite pure Caucasian ancestry). Many don't have fair eyes but are also Caucasian.

    Other DNA websites of interest here

    I would like to share some websites with a similar discussion group in Asia... discussing DNA distribution of the world in general, and Asia/China/Japan/Korea in particular.

    The first website is the "Genographic Project", what many may already know, that of the joint scientific effort of IBM and National Geographic.

    www.nationalgeographic.com then search for "Genographic"

    or try... (might not work)
    http://news.nationalgeographic.com/n...nographic.html

    An example of the results is on the "Journeyofman.info" website...

    http://journeyofman.info/index.php?showtopic=291

    This particular graphic shows the migration of Korean/Southern Chinese of the group identified as Haplogroup O (M 175)

    This information and other contributions I believe may have been generated by a JREF member, and I thank him. (hope he doesn't mind the cross polination of ideas)

    http://www.chinahistoryforum.com/ind...showtopic=5031
    (scroll down 8-17 pages)

    Tremendous thread, tremendous information.

    All IOD

    I made some english corrections in the quote as well >>>
    [QUOTE=jeisan]mongoliod its the scientific name for the asian races, it stems from "mongol" others use the term oriental to define the asian peoples.
    negroid, "coming" from negro, which means black, is the term for people of african descent.
    caucasian originates from the "caucus" mountains.

    Caucasoid is the correct term and word, funny how that slips by the radar... but then that would start to even things up in the category we call races.


    Because of my "type" I was proposed to several times in Kyoto. Very good looking fellows but complete strangers. Plying me with jewelry and silk intimate gifts!!! Imagine! That was kinda fun actually! I'm not saying what!!!!!

    Don't know!!!!!!!!!!!! Really I don't understand this whole bloodgroup thing. On a first date with a girl she asked me:
    "What is your bloodgroup?"
    I fell down from my chair, shivered and asked: "why, you wanne eat me or something, YOUR A VAMPIRE? OR YOU DO YOU NEED A DONOR?
    she just said:"No , no don't worry I don't want something, just asking....because.... when I want to have a baby, I want to have a baby with Good blood...

    First date... Baby... Bloodtype.. THIS GIRL IS INSANE... do they all do this in Japan? BEWARE MAN...

    well in the end, I got married to this girl, and I am a happy person , but this bloodgroup thingie?

    Dutch, my man! You had me rolling with that post!

    And I can actually imagine your expression because I'd probably react the same way! Gotta hand it to Japanese girls though, they damn sure don't waste any time when it comes to planning for the future! Good blood? Good Lord!!

    I'm semitic - is that caucasian? I'm pasty-faced, so I guess so. As for my blood group, I have no idea.

    A. I don't know whether + or - though.

    Filipinos have a very mixed bloodline. Initially you have three distinct bloodlines coming from three waves of migrants. Indones, Malay and Negritos. Indones and Malay are believed to be from neighboring islands while negritos are from down south, Australia maybe. From those base three you mix mongoloid bloodlines from Chinese migrants then add Caucasian bloodlines from Spain and Portugal mostly followed by Americans and finally some Japanese.

    I have found this article today:
    TOKYO (AFP) - When the atmosphere loosened up at her office, Japanese hospital clerk Makiko Ishikawa knew it was because there was new blood around -- literally.
    Fellow workers with Type-O blood had joined the team, she explained, replacing the Type-A types who strictly follow the rules.
    "When I meet someone for the first time, like newcomers at work, I usually ask them their blood types. It tells me something about their personality," said 30-year-old Ishikawa.
    Read all
    And I have found this website :http://www.human-abo.org/english/index.html

    You can find all information about the meaning of bloodtypes etc!!!!

    How do I find out my blood type? Like Dutch Baka, I have no idea what my blood type is, but many Japanese people I've known have asked me... I know you don't have to give blood, they can just ***** your finger can't they?

    It seems funny, but I'd like to know my blood group, just to know for the future---

    I don't know my blood type. I'm too much of a cheap bastard to pay my doctor for a blood test. And even though it's on file, for some reason they won't let me see my medical files. I have to either buy it(the file) or pay for some new tests. Whoo.
