Default Is this chick stupid or something?

She's a friend of mine, she's not white (won't specify the race, not important) and she is studied abroad and fell in love with a European who is 12 years older than she is...


well she got into a fight with her parents saying she is too young and that they want her to marry into their own ethnicity.. yadda yadda.

she was complaining to me and I was just being a friend and consoling/supporting her.


but she said something really stupid... I didn't say this to her because it would not have been relevant, but it was so stupid that I felt I had to write this on ISH... weird...



anyway



she said her parents forbade her from dating a white guy.

she responded: "he's not white. He's European! Italian to be exact."

Some people (Italians themselves) don't consider Italians to be white. Granted it also depends on the area of Italy the person is coming from. For example, people from Northern Italy (Milan for argument sakes) tend to be fairer in skin color and are more nordic looking then say someone from Sicily or Calabrese (southern Italy) who are typically more darker in skin and hair color.

What she said isn't really that dumb.

Irish and Italians weren’t considered white in America during the 20's.

correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard sicilians were consistently raped and pillaged by moorish invaders, who were black. and thats why southern italians have darker skin tones.
