In brief: Ancestry

The term caucasian comes from the caucasus mountains and caucasus region which consists of parts of present day russia, georgia, azerbaijan, armenia, iran, turkey.
The term caucasian is used synonymously with the term white when people talk about race. The old racial terminology is outdated. "whites" can have asian features such as epicanthal folds. Modern genetics shows that we are all related.
