Why are dark Sicilians and Greeks considered white?

These concepts are socially constructed and have been given much weight. What are your thoughts?

I do not consider Fabrizio Miccoli to be white. Northern Italians are white but not southerners. Southerners are Meditteranean.

What do you base it on? That they are "european"?
If race is not based on looks then race becomes a social construct. Of course you want him to be white because he is your boyfriend.

Meditteraneans look different from north and central europeans. If there is different looks how is it the same race?
You just wanna steal med achievements of romans and greeks.

Well I think its like someone considering someone oriental because they are asian. That is dumb in my opinion. The northern Italians are white in my opinion but the southerners should not be called white or latin but meditteranean. In Argentina and Southern Brazil, Uruguay many do not have indian blood.

southern france touches northern spain which is different from central and southern spain. Northern spain is white, southern and central are meditteraneans. Penelope Cruz for example looks way different from Nicole Kidman. I think olive or tan white is an oxymoron in my view.

Neither Turturro or Fat Joe is white. Turturro gets his looks from BERBERS.

"Tan or olive white" is no more an oxymoron than "light black".

Meds and nordics are just variations of the same basic race: Caucasoid, Caucasian, whatever. You're exagerating the difference between the two groups by using exteme examples of bothe types - very dark Meds and very pale Northerners. Compare Catherine Zeta Jones (British) to Marissa Tomei(Italian-American). How different are they?

How can you consider spaniards white but you do not consider the mexicans of spaniard descent white? same thing. Most mexicans are half indian half spanish but there are spanish ones. How is a Mario Batali the same race as a Fabrizio Miccoli ? also you ignore the fact many spanish have BERBER GENES. Miccoli is almost pure berber italian

Yes I know. I said that in the post. Tell me however how is Christina aguilera not white but penelope cruz is when she is darker than aguilera. even spaniards themselves do not deny the berber component like mexicans do not deny the indian component. The truth is berbers cant be denied in spanish like indians cant be denied in mexicans
