Probably of those who consider themselves a Turk regardless of their ethnic background.

I think Zazas a different Kurdish society. lazish is a Black Sea peoples. 

Turkification : themselves to feel like Turk.

Gypsy culture is all over the world and is a separate thing. Trakya is different.

In what ways?

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Turkey

 

There may be Pomak, Albanian, Bosnian, Arabic, Kurdish speaking people throghout Thrace albeit with small percentages. Is that what you mean? But that doesn´t reflect any different pecularity from the most of the other parts of the country.

Bu şekilde insanları ayırmak güzel bir şey değildir.Bilimsel ve akılcı bir yönü de yoktur.Bir ulusal devlette çok sayıda etnik kimlik olabilir.Bu mormaldir.Bakın Amerika, Kanada, Avustralya, İngiltere, Almanya, IspanyA, Belçika ve daha bir çok ülkeye, içlerinde 72 etnik grup vardır.Ve bunların hepsi de bir devletin vatandaşlarını oluştururlar.Türkiye´ye gelince:Türkiye´deki bu saydığınız etnik gruplar, kendi özel yaşam alanlarında yer bulan alt kimliklerdir ve saygın kimlkiklerdir.Türkiye´de üst kimlik Türklüktür ve Kendisini Türk hisseden herkes Türktür.

I dont see anything wrong about exploring and exposing the demographics.

an example of a city demographics:

---

The racial/ethnic/cultural composition of Los Angeles as of the 2005-2009 American Community Survey was as follows:

    White: 41.3% (Non-Hispanic Whites: 29.4%)
    Hispanic or Latino (of any race): 47.5%
    Black or African American: 9.8%
    Native American: 0.5%
    Asian: 10.7%
    Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander: 0.2%
    Other: 25.2%
    Two or more races: 2.8%

---

anyone who feel themselves american or angelinos is american or angelinos! (whatever it means!)

True, however the problem is it sort of gives the impression all of the Asians or Hispanics are the same, when in fact there is a very wide variation. For instance there are for Asians we have East Indians, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Cambodian, Laotian, Hmong....with the Latinos there are Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Salvadorans....I could go on, but hopefully you get the picture. I haven´t even scraped the surface of the diversity in those two groups, Asians and Hispanics. Once they are here, they are all Americans, they are all subject to the same laws and basic human needs.

The term "white" is even more confusing. the race you call white is the indian race which includes not just germans english or french but also indians pakistanis iranians greeks and armenians. The latter however don´t look so white right? But basically all of you migrated from india and pakistan.

ETNİK GRUPLAR


It is not important.


Being a good person is not so easy, it requires sincerity, effort, altruism and knowledge


Being a good person does not depend on your ethnic group, religion, status in your life, race, skin color, political views or culture.


It depends on how you treats others.

Eurovis, I did NOT call any race white. The term is pretty confusing and I don´t understand it myself.....and don´t say my ancestors came from India and Pakistan. The fact of the matter is it seems we all came from Africa in different migrations.
What is most important is we learn to live together in peace and harmony. I think we need to learn to accept and celebrate our differences.

Yes you all came from Pakistan but because the european fascists are ashamed of their Indian-Paki origin they came up with the term "caucasian" claiming that europeans migrated from the caucausus which is a pure lie and has no scientific evidence. Have you ever wondered what the "arian" race is? Is it the race with blonde people with blue eyes as the european fascists claim? No It´s the Indo-Paki race which you are also a member of.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indo-Aryan_peoples

 

Your language and Indian belong to the same language family which means they were once the same single language.

I think you/we need take another look, America is not white, nor is Europe white these days. What on earth white means is quite another question.

It is more a matter of "have a lot", "have more", "have little" and "have hardly any". There are few who "have enough". 
There seems to be an insaitable desire, or compulsion to "have it all" to be on "top"
The urge to share and take care of one another is lacking.  
Don´t be fooled into thinking it´s White versus...? That is just a way to divide people.

What`s next? Will you also claim that America and Europe are not christian? Why do they celebrate the Native American Genocide under the name of Columbus Day if they are not Pakis?

I can not speak of Europe, the USA has no official religion. Many faiths are subscribed to and practiced here. People are free to believe, not believe and search for what ever beliefs they wish. Faith must come from the heart, it can not be forced. Many people claim to be a member of some faith or another, however when you question them, you often find their actual knowledge of what they profess to believe is very limited.

so because america has no official religion we shouldn`t consider it as a christian country? Turkey doesn`t have an official religion either. so why do you christians call Turkey an islamic country? and why can`t we call your country a chrisrian country?
