No one is exactly sure who 'Brown People' are. It has been used inconsistently throughout history to describe everyone from Italians (in early US immigration history), Malaysians, Indigenous people in Canada, Australia, and the US, people of India, 'mixed' South Africans, and Hispanics.

Where I live it is really in vogue with South Asians/Desis who feel the need to racialize themselves.

This term is used more by some of these groups to describe themselves then it is used by others to describe them.

The ethnic male/female of brown skin colour.
The skin colour of the future human race as:
1. Brown people have more offspring.
2. Mixed raced people emerge as the colour brown.
3. White people develop interracial relationships.

White people get tans to be BROWN while black /brown people use whitening cream to be whiter. Yet all people want the colour brown as its seen as the sexy tanned colour.

However the media downplays this fact through netagtive stereotyping of the brown man as a terrorist. The brown man is never a celebrity, model or sucessful polical person in the western world.

Yet the emerging brown race will dominate the planet based on Islam.
Brown and black men will dominate the world
Brown man + Brown woman = Brown offspring
Brown man + black woman = Dark Brown offspring
Brown man = White woman = Light Brown offspring
Black man + white woman = Brown offspring

Either way its still brown these brown people will be of mixed religions however majority of brown people are Muslim
