    Caucasian (or Caucasoid) belonged to a set of terms introduced by 19th-century anthropologists attempting to categorize human races. Although such classification is now outdated and potentially offensive, the term Caucasian has acquired a more restricted meaning in the US, as a synonym for white people. In Iranian history however, it's referred to the area and people living in a large area between the Black Sea and Caspian Sea. (Wikipedia) - Caucasian
