That "Caucasian" term means nothing in relation to whiteness in modern times.  Your racial identifiers are grossly outdated. 
I'm not sure what you mean...I actually loathe the way the term has essentially been hijacked from groups/people who would most likely be considered as "people of colour"

many caucasians (as in those from the caucasus region like ora, not the modern, "common" meaning which is indeed an example of gross misappropriation) are actually trying to reclaim that term and so they should

There's this doctor I know that looks black, but he is Indian. He says he uses it to his advantage when it comes to black patients because they trust him more and give him more info. He looks like pharrell a little bit.

Oh my. I thought she was black without a doubt.

She is
She is half indian half white

I read that her father was "Dutch born".

You can be a black Jamaican and still be "English born" provided you were born before, what, 1962?
*Googles* i thought one of her parents were dutch... i am british but not called 'English' even though i am born over here, we are generally referred to 'afro-caribs, west indians, black british caribs, black british africans. Never just English. I'd assume if her dutch parent was black they'd be called 'black dutch' or something. LOL

Rachel Roy was born on January 15, 1974 in California. She was raised with her brother Rajendra Roy, now the Chief Film Curator of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. She is of mixed racial ancestry: her mother is Dutch and her father is Indian.

Roy grew up in California, and attended Seaside High School along the Monterey Peninsula in Northern California. She attended Columbia Union College and Washington Adventist University in Takoma Park, Maryland, majoring in Liberal Arts. Roy graduated in 1996. After graduation, she moved to New York to continue her work in retail, as well as her work as a stylist.

Roy has two daughters with Damon Dash: Ava, born December 7, 1999 and Tallulah, born May 14, 2008. She and Dash were married from 2005 to 2009.[1] In 2011, there was speculation that she and Dwight Freeney were dating.[2]

I work with a lot of dark skin Indians, but he looked like a black man. He is an ER physician.

ETA: I think it is also because he is bald. With hair, he can't sit with us.

LOLLOL right?

On the other-hand, this confirms Pharrell's blackness even more since this Indian man is passing for black by looking like Pharrell.
