I honestly question your motives of being in this thread also taking into account your deleted post.

And FYI, the vast mayority of Turks do look "white"...
Most Turks look about the same as Albanians, Muslim Yugoslavians and Greeks. These groups are all pretty much the same due to the Ottoman Empire intermixing.

Southern Turkey has some people with mixed Arab (Syrian or Jordanian) ancestry, but they are a minority. Northern Turkey has people of mixed Russian heritage.

For the American concept of race, I would definitely say Turks are "white." In Germany they are not really considered "white" per se, but neither are Albanians, Kosovars, etc.
