American Sign Language: "white"

The sign for "white" (as in the color white) starts as a flat hand with the thumb extended. As you pull the hand away from your chest, change the shape so that your thumb is touching the fingers.

The sign for "white" can be modified to mean "Caucasian" and/or "pale." To sign "Caucasian" or "pale," you do the sign "WHITE" then you throw the whiteness in your face. For an example, see: CAUCASIAN
