    They range from pale to dark brown. Lets discuss the dark browns like my family first. They are a mix of middle eastern, southasian and european. They look distinct, brown with distinct features etc. I could mistake one or the other indian for gypsie but when i see a group of gypsies and a group of indians, i immediately know the difference, gypsies cant be anything else they are distinctly gypsy but i doubt the american race census would invent a own category for gypsies, they are also not middle eastern. so where would you place gypsies, individually you could say mixed race, but gypsies are a ethnic group and they are mixed but as ethnic group, and many ethnic groups are mixed, so you have to place this ethnic group somewhere. right now i heard they are not counted by the race census. in the race census middle eastern and european and northafrican is white, but indians and pakistans are asians.
