  • This is why I hate to use the term white and black. I mean Swedes don't look like Greeks at all lol, despite both being European and so called "white". White is too broad of a term to categorise so many different groups of people. I prefer to use ethnicity or a smaller regional area. Personally I don't think using race categories in Europe and Asia really works because we have such divided ethnicities and different appearances depending on our country/ethnicity of background. It generally only works in america because many people there are already so clearly mixed up that their major ethnic background would be far too difficult to pinpoint.

    So I guess yes in an American point of view they would be white (apart from those turks who could pass as being from an arabic country). As for European point of view, well they're most likely to be seen by what country/ethnicity they are of than by race.

      That's why I laughed when Americans say Indonesians and Koreans belong to the same race Asian

      A retard even can tell the difference in appearance unless he or she is colorblind.

      @Unique_Asian_dude Yup, they look COMPLETELY different from each other. But a lot of people on GaG are American so I have no choice but to use race terms 😑

  • it basically depends what kind of history their country has gone through. with massive immigration every country have amix where genes rensemble more arabic people than White people - that's not racism tho - arabs move more than other ethic groups and therefore you have more mixes.

    Turks = mostly made out of arabs
    Spanish = a crossover of sorts
    italians = same as Spanish where in the North they're more celtic/german descendents and form with latin tribes mixed and mingled with. If you go South you have people looking (and often acting) as arabs or Africans.
    greeks = Pretty much the same as italians.

  • Italians, Spanish and Greek people are white. Though I've met many Turkish people who looked like Arabs and I've met some Turkish people who looked like Eastern Europeans. Originally, they are not white in my opinion, but they've been mixed and thus, some of them may be considered as white.

  • do they need to be? they are European and live by European ideals. their geographical location has determined their skin color. natural selection took good care of them.

  • Italians are as white as French, except Sicilians who can be a little darker (not black). Spanish are also usually white, except the remnants of the moors. Turks are Arab, not white. Greeks same as Italians.

      Turks are not Arab😅 They are Turkic with some white Balkan and slavic imput and caucasus imput. Sooome might have Arab imput but they are not Arab

    • 2mo

      I meant their appearance, but yes you can split hairs. The near east has had many outside infusions, including white Balkans as far back as the northern invasion of 1250bc.

  • They are basically a mixture of blacks, arabs and whites. Most of them are brown, some of them are white or black.

  • I'm Italian and I'm nowhere near black. My family originates from the northernmost regions of Italy, near the Swiss alps. There is a chance that Greeks, Spaniards, Sicilians and maybe Calabrians have black roots.

      By the way Turks cannot be considered as neither Middle Eastern nor Caucasian because we originate from Central Asia. So, Turks are Central Asians.
