Same thing as Iranian.

A person that is from Iran. A person who has an Iranian background.

The main Persian religion is Islam, and the other religion right behind it is Judaism. There are few Christian Persians.

According to the U.S. government, all Persians as well as all of the Middle Easterners are classified as white (yes, even Indians), even though they really aren't. They should be classified as Middle Eastern.

The Persian Muslims are desendents of Indo-Europeans, or the Aryans, and they were white. But look at them, Persian Muslims don't have pale skin anymore (they are tan, and brown, possibly near black!), they don't have blonde hair anymore (its dark brown and black), and their eyes are brown and black now (not hazel and blue). They ARE NOT Arab!! They speak Farsi.

The Persian Jews, unlike Persian Muslims, are desendents of the Hebrews from Ancient Israel, and they are very close to the Arabs, but they are NOT Europeans. The Persian Jews are are NOT Aryan. They look the same as the Muslims from Iran, they are exactly the same, except of the religions and ancestory. But the same. Their skin colors are tan and brown as well. And NO, Persian Jews aren't cheap (ALL PERSIANS ARE CHEAP AT TIMES), and a lot of Persians need nose jobs themselves, not just the stereotypical "big-nosed" Jew. They speak the same Farsi as Persian Muslims.
Being Persian is the same exact same thing as being Iranian.

They are Aryans ("True Aryan Race") Iran was originally called "Iranshahr", meaning "Land of the Aryans"
They are semites as well.
They are not white people, but in the US they are classified as 'white', which is extremely offending to their heritage.
They speak Farsi, not Arabic. (Farsi is mainly a mixture of pure Persian, Arabic, and Turkish) Arabic words are in Farsi due to the Arabs conquering Iran hundreds of years ago. Turkish words are in Farsi because, the Safavid Empire's (one of the three Persian Empires) official language was Turkish.
A stereotypical Iranian is fairly skinned, big nosed, dark haired, brown eyed, EXTREMELY hairy (yes, for BOTH genders), pretty rich yet cheap. They love bargains and free stuff. They have odd accents.

An ancient Indo-European race that migrated to the areas of modern day Iran about 4000 years ago. They were caucasian. They looked like Germans. They called themselves the Noble, Master Race. They stayed in the areas of the modern day Iran. After centuries of evolution they were white anymore; they became tan and dark skinned, they got brown eyes and dark brown and black hair. Their Farsi got loans of words from surrounding languages, especially Arabic. They stopped calling themeselves Aryan, and began to use the more common Iranian, or Persian. They created a huge empire; the Persian Empire. They spread so much that they began to genetically mix with other races (Greeks, ancient Hebrews, Arabs). During the Iranian Empire's power, ancient Jewish Hebrews settled in the areas of present day Iran, and they stayed, and over time they began to evolve into true Iranians. The Hebrews would mix with the Aryans as well. Persian Jews have been in Iran for about 2700 years. All this time the main Iranian religion was Zoroastrianism. But the Iranians that desended from the ancient Hebrews stayed Jewish, but they were true Iranians. (Once Christianity was a religion, it was pushed into Iran by the immigrating Christian Armenians later on.) Then, during the 7th century, Iran was invaded by the Muslim Arabs. More than half of the entire Iranian population was forced to convert to Islam; but quite a bit of Zoroastrians and Jews survived. There is a LOT to tell, but this is what the Aryans were. The modern day Iranians are mixed with Aryan AND Semitic blood. (The semitic ancestry was from the Arabs and Hebrews.) They are not white, but in the US they unfortunatly are classified as it, but a simple classification cannot change one's race.

By the way, Iranian and Persian mean the EXACT SAME THING.
The Aryans- They are Persian, and Iran is their Land.

818
The area code of The San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. The vslley is huge, consisting tons of L.A. suburbs. '818' is the gangsta way to call it, as there are lots of gangstas down in L.A., so yeah. The people that reside in the valley (particularly the Persians), always say things like : "2Live 'n' die in tha 818 area." Even through in contains only suburbs of Los Angeles, gangstas still live in there. It's still the 'safe', 'unhard' valley, but there are 'hood' cities in there (i.e. Reseda, Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills, and especially Pacoima!) If a person resides in the valley, it is 'cool'. Also the 818 is the birthplace of the phrase Persian Pride. Probably down in Reseda. A shit load of Iranian-Americans reside there.

And by the way, I reside in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, and the are fucking dangerous places to be at night.
Tha Valley/Tha 818/Los Angeles/2Live 'n' Die in the 818 Area/818 Represent.

Relating to ancient Persia, or its people.
Used to describe something from Iran.
In America, Iranian Americans usually use the slang term ‘Persian’ to call himself or herself by, instead of Iranian, Iranian American
According to the U.S. government, all Iranians as well as all of the Middle Easterners are classified as white (yes, even Indians), even though they really shouldn’t be. THEY ARE FUCKING TAN, DARK, BROWN, BROWN EYED, AND BROWN HAIRED AND THERE CULTURE IS NOTHING LIKE 'WHITE'. They should be classified as ARYAN/SEMITIC.
Persian is one of the oldest races in the world. Because of this, the ancestors of Iranians are all over the place. It also mainly depends on your religion.
The Persian Muslims and Zoroastrianists are mainly descendants of Indo-Europeans, or the Aryans, and they were white. But look at them, Persian Muslims don't have pale skin anymore (they are tan and brown), they don't have blonde hair anymore (its dark brown and black), and their eyes are brown and black now (not hazel and blue). They are not Arab. They speak Farsi. The Persian Jews, unlike Persian Muslims, are descendents from people all over the place because they are mainly Semitic and not Aryan. They are descendents of the Hebrews from Ancient Israel, and they are very close to the Arabs, but they are not Indo-Europeans. The Persian Jews are not Aryan. They look the same as the Muslims from Iran; they are exactly the same, except of the religions and ancestry. But they are the same. Their skin colors are tan and brown as well. And NO, Persian Jews aren't stereotypically cheap, a lot of Persians are cheap, and a lot of Persians need nose jobs themselves, not just the stereotypical "big-nosed" Jew. Those cheap, big nose stereotypes are for the white Jews. They speak Farsi.
List of Persian ancestry: The Semitics (Jews of Iran) is Arabic (Arabia), Hebrew (Israel), Aramean (Ancient Aram/Syria), Babylonian (Babylon), Carthaginian (Ancient Carthage/Northeastern Tunis), Ethiopian (Ethiopia), and Phoenician (Ancient Phoenicia/Syria and Lebanon).
The Aryans (Muslims and Zoroastrianists of Iran) are Indo-Aryan, Indo-Iranian, Indo-Zoroastrians Indo-European, Indo-Germanic, Indo-Hittite (Around the area of present day Germany). Both types have a little Greek, Roman, and Sub Saharan African blood.
But really, Iran is a really old country so all the people of all religions are mixed.
Over 3000 years, Ancient and modern Persians of all religion and backgrounds mixed.
persian is iranian, no doubt lol
