I'm not asking that what's his birthplace. Is him Persian, Arabian or Indian?

Here is how I understand it. Freddie's parents were Indian, and Parsees. There were a small group of parsees in India. They met in India and returned to Zanzibar where freddie was born. So I feel, Freddie wasn't African descent. He was Indian. And maybe because of him being born in zanzibar, he was Persian.

Bascially Freddie's parents are Persian they had Freddie in Zanzibar and then they moved to England. Persia is now called Iran...

he was born in zanzibar so he's a zanzabri.

Persia - ok persia sonds mystic but persia never existed or doesn't xist. It's Iran - the Greeks just named it persia like they named Europe, Asia etc.

Iran was always know as Iran in Iran and that's why they're called iran today - because that's their name and not Persia.

Anyway didn't all humans come from Africa to begin with?? So wahts the fascination.

Ok it sounds cool but Zanzibar is cool enough!!!

If anyone wants history lessons i'm not available.

Fredie's nationality was British. He has persian roots though. Zanzibar was a British colony when Freddie was born. It's like Zidane, the guy was born in Africa, but his nationality is French because he was born in a French colony back then.

Freddie's ancestors were Persian. His parent's nationality was Indian. He was born in a British 'colony'.

I suppose he may legally be British but racially Asian/Indian/Arab

Confused?

I researched this bit carefully on my homepage: http://www.mercury-and-queen.com/zanzibar.htm and http://www.mercury-and-queen.com/india.htm: Although Freddie was born in Zanzibar, his grandparent's hometown is in Bulsar in the Gujarat province of western India. Freddie's nationality is Indian or 'Bi Indian' as his birth certificate says, but his so called ethnic group or 'race' (so says his birth certificate) is Parsee.

Freddie said himself he was a Persian
He could have been Indian because his education was in Bombay (Mumbai) but he was a British citizen from the late 60's to his death so Freddie could have adopted the British language

Right
Is Parsi = Persian?
Is Parsi a country or just a tribe?
If Fred is Persian, so he is Iran?

Parsi/Parsee is not the same as Persian.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parsee

Have a look at this. Wikipedia is always right, because it's on the internet.
