Such points, however, need not here be further pursued than to establish the presence of this white race around the Caspian and the Euxine throughout historic times.
Amidst this white race of the steppe the Khazars can be first historically distinguished at the end of the 2nd century A.D.
They beat down all opposition, wrested even Bosporus in the Crimea from the empire, and by the annihilation of the Ephthalites completed the ruin of the White Race of the plains from the Oxus to the Don.
The white race is of Spanish descent and has the characteristics common to other Spanish-American creoles.
More than half the representatives of the white race (1903) were Americans.
