I am full Italian/Sicilian ancestry.
Italians, Greeks, Spanish (Spain), Portugese and Turkish are in a sub category of what i call ''Euro-Latin''.
Basically, we are the ''Hispanics'' of the Old World.
We all have similar histories, civilizations. artwork, food etc in the same way you can tell Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, Vietnamese etc are all Asians.
This is the best answer you can get to this question.

They're just insecure and probably jealous that you tan nicely whereas they probably burn.

They just need counselors and should also move back to their native land if they don't like others "different" from them.

You are full of it. Italians are white, they are European and they have as little to NO African/Egyptian/Arab admixture as all other Europeans. Many Africans and Arabs have European admixture but I don't see you people go around claiming they aren't Africans or Middle Eastern.Genetically they cluster with all other Europeans, phenotypically they look no different then other Europeans, linguistically they are Indo-Europeans and culturally, historically, geographically etc they are European. Italians are white. Period.

Skin color and DNA don't matter when AAs classify themselves as black. They only matter when others classify themselves as white.

DNA always matters to me above anything else.

If someone labels themselves whatever in order to explain to others their appearance, then so be it; however, DNA is the only thing that truly matters to me when it comes down to it.

There are Japanese with very light skin, just as light as certain Europeans... but it doesn't make them "white" nor closely related to Europeans with equally light skin tone. Certain groups of Europeans have bone-straight hair and white skin, just like many East Asians... but it doesn't mean they're closely related to each other; it doesn't mean we call those East Asians "white" now, right?

This is so true! They can label themselves what ever they want but god forbid white people who are white, and have nothing to do with AAs, identify as white, black Americans get bend out of shape and start threads about them. They are nuts. What do they care what Italians identify as racially.......and yet they started a whole threads about it.

True, anthopologically, skin color has never been the sole factor in determining race.

BTW

Southern East Asians once referred to the Chinese as white.

Could it be a culturally-derived tendency acquired via close association with racist-prone white Americans?

Yes, we're "white" in the sense that we're
Europeans...and then it begins to blur when you get around Turkey.

See, here's the thing. There's already enough "diversity" amongst whites so that we don't need you to add any for us, got it?

Look at the Irish, look at the Germans, look at the Spanish, look at us--plenty of diversity amongst us, we're one big family even though we don't always get along.

And ALL people are racist to some extent or another, can't just pin it on euro-people, ya know?

I've been throughout the middle-east and to china once...and I KNOW that people all over the world are racist, it's just the way that it is. Only in western countries is race and racism such a big obcession.

Now go worry about your own people and stop worrying about what we are, it doesn't concern you. We're certainly not Africans..we're europeans.

You're what we call a "wigger" in the USA.

It's not cool to pretend to be something that you aren't. We're a member of the european family, lets not pretend other-wise for the sake of trying to identify with people of color and jump on the "hate whitey" band-wagon.

The irish also suffered discrimination and they're are the whitest of the whites.

Having been discriminated against doesn't get you into the people-of-color-minority-club, ya know?

The type of discrimination that you speak of is the kind that exists between some of the different european ethnicities/cultures but doesn't make us non-european. Some Irish dislike the brits, some brits dislike the irish, some brits dislike the polish, some french don't like Americans, some americans didn't like the irish or italians a long time ago...and on and on.

While I agree that there may have been some mixing at one time or another amongst a segment of the population, we're still caucasions. et rid of the self-hate and be proud of your people.
