Arabs are part of the Mediterranean (sp?) race, which is NOT part of the races considered white. This race inculdes arabs, egyptians, greeks, spanish, and italian. So yes, I would say check the other box. I have done some research and this is what the race is, so you are NOT white. Heck, you probably dont even look white and get mistaken as Mex and the time, right? So if someone is picking people on skin-color as all the other AA benefactors are saying, you wouldn't get in either.
