A race of people known as the original "Aryans". Persian refers to someone from Persia; or modern day Iran. Located in central Asia, Iran is the only non-Arab, non-semetic country in the middle-east. The country's name was changed during the reign of The Shah, (during WWII) at Hitlers advisement that it was better suited, meaning "Land of the Aryans". Hitler had close ties to Iran and regarded the Shah a close friend and ally. Through his many excavations researching Aryan history and genetics, he had come to learn that the persians (i.e. Iranians) were very much Aryan, and interestingly, a race much similar to the Germans. Since the overthrowing of the shah in 1979, The Persian Gov't. has been under the siege of islamic rule, and its people imprisoned within its religous dictates...
The persian population in vast majority stands divided against an Islamic/Muslim rule, and remain hopeful that the day is near when they can finally close the chapter once and for all on this gray, and oppressive period in their history...
The persian community is strongly opposed to an Islamic/Arab Gov't.

A typical persian(from Iran, prounounced eeron, not i ran) is always late to everything, lives in a nice area (like Beverly Hills), drives a Mercedes or BMW, has a lot of money. Often times, persians have accents that inhibit them from properly pronouncing the letter "w," and therefore they replace it with "v". Persian guys are known to be hairy on every part of their body except the top of their head, and wear a lot of cologne. Persian girls are very "clicky" and tend to dress in all black black. Brand names are a MUST. Also, a typical trend is the older they are, the blonder they are. It all starts with highlights, and then turns into blonde! (only for some persians...typically persian girls.)
PS most persians want to go to UCLA and become doctors or lawyers or successful business men/women.

people that hark from the country of Iran.

their men are often very hairy.

they often feel alienated because their country is surrounded by arabs, and their country is being run like an arab country, and when they leave their country, they are often mistaken for arabs. when the fact of the matter is that persians hate arabs probably more than any other race on the face of the planet.
non-persian: "Yo, take off your sweater, man, aren't you hot?"

non-persian: "what a persian you are"

A person with ancestery from modern day Iran, but contemptuous of the current regime. Most persians live in Great Neck, New York or Beverly Hills, California. They tend to be wealthy and live in large homes with very little furniture. Flashy watches and cars are requirements for all persian men. As a general rule, they are very loyal to other persians and equally sneaky when dealing with non-persians.
Is Matt retarded? He's actually considering going into business with that persian guy and his father.

Mostly Muslim immigrants (although some of them are Christians, Jews, and Bahais) from Iran and their kids living in wealthy parts of Southern California such as Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Brentwood and Sherman Oaks, they generally have materialistic values and an ugly sounding language but they don't really bother anyone for the most part, they're one of the wealthiest immigrant groups in the USA along with the Cubans. The California Persians have a very similar attitude and political orientation to the Florida Cubans. Due to Iran having such a nasty government and being so hated in the USA they regard themselves as Persians not Iranians
