Currently a small race of people originating from around the area of Mesopotamia and Asia minor. Armenians are described by some as being a majority of "pre-made geniuses". If you have ever met an Armenian, and have assumed a negative opinion about them, keep in mind that there are good and bad, beautiful and not so beautiful, intelligent and stupid people within every ethnic group. We are human beings.
Armenian women are renowned for their beauty; typically with large dark eyes, thick lashes and long healthy hair. A traditional female hairstyle is a very long braid to the side.
For such a small group of people, Armenians have contributed much to the world; they have many great doctors, actors, sport players (soccer and boxing being prominent),musicians (composers, instrumentalists, conductors, singers),writers, engineers, and, I think most of all, inventors.
Also take note, that a person's environment usually effects their behavior. Some people think that the diaspora Armenians in Glendale, California (and other populous regions) are giving a bad reputation to the rest of the Armenians. They are immigrants from Armenia, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, and Iran. They seem to be rowdy troublemakers with a lot of pride in who they are. This somewhat true. There’s the higher 2nd, 3rd generation end of the society, and the lower class of newer immigrants, who struggle in America and find that being poor in their native country is still much better than being poor in America. The parents of these families work all day, leaving their children unsupervised for hours; resulting in the formation of gangs and troublesome activity. It’s a hard life over there, and the Armenians in Glendale a perfect example of people being effected by their environment. Any ethnic group in a situation like that would have the same/similar problems.

And also, of course, you can not have the definition of an Armenian without mention of their rich culture; with its delicious food, deeply culturaly rooted music, unique language and alphabet, and dancing! agh aman their parties. I have always thought that the Armenian culture and food is similar to the Arabic, Greek and Russian cultures.

I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia. See if you can do it. Send them to the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a new Armenia.

Armenian's are a small but highly talented, intelligent, and above all a passionate race of people. They've had the historically significant misfortune of being the first Christian nation, to be surrounded on all sides by Muslims(Turkey to the East, Iran to the South, Azerbaijan to the West). They draw their strength from their identity and their history. Their history is ancient and full of pain and suffering, they were victims of Genocide before the word was invented by Raphael Lemkin. They are united by the spilled blood of their ancestors, if not by their religion, language, food, and culture. They cannot be destroyed as Turkey already knows. They will live on and they will prosper.
An example of an Armenian is William Saroyan, Charles Aznavour, and many other highly talented individuals from a very small population. Amazing how many talented and intelligent people come from such a small population.

Ethnic Armenians live in Armenia, a small country in South Europe (The last country in Europe before the middle-east starts). By looks they closely resemble Greeks and their neighbors, Georgians. Most have pale skin with dark hair and eyes, but there are also a number of blond and red-headed Armenians with different eye colors.

They are the first adapters of Christianity, and defend it vigorously. They have suffered at the hands of Turkey and Azerbaijan, but the Armenians won't die. They fight for their land, even in such a hostile position.

I've never heard of Armenians, where's Armenia?
It's at the edge of Europe, a very hostile place

The Armenians are an anciant race that have gone through bullshit since we were put on this earth. We used to be a country of kingas and great rulers until the world started hating. We are the victims of genocide from the turks and because of it we are spread out all over the world now...one of our biggest places of residence outside armenia is southern cali in hollywood, glendale, north hollywood, pasadena and burbank. We have the best and the worst from our Rabiz fobers to our armo O.G.'s to the high class moneymakers and officials of society...however we are a proud race except for the couple of self haters...
