What she said isn't really that dumb.
All native Italians are white, regardless of what they consider themselves.

the only Italians I have had dealings with are out of Tuscany.. Florence to be exact.
iirc alot of europeans from southern europe have significant amounts of arab or african DNA. Because of the Moorish conquests during the middle ages. It was until later that europeans managed to re-conqueror significant portions of spain and other parts of southern europe.

very true, but mind you this "african" blood is never sub-saharan african (aka black african), any and all historic north african blood in spain, france, italy, etc is Of Arab, Berber, Tuareg, or Moorish origin.

even tuscan Italians (or Etruscans, more specifically) are descendants of oriental (or what now is Turkey) tribes that migrated some 3000 years ago.

The Arab*/North African influence on southern Europe goes back much further than that. Sicily was fought over by Greeks, and Phoenicians prior to the Punic wars. Some of the larger cities in Spain were Phoenician colonies e.g Barcelona (named after the Barcid clan, of which Hannibal is the most famous member), and Cartagena (New Carthage). Greeks* built cities along the coast in North Africa, and the Levant. There were exchanges of culture, trade, and genetics, throughout the Mediterranean, since before written history.

Italians (many of them at least) have been swarthy, olive skinned mofos for at least 2000 years.

The panel depicts the Roman Emperor Septimus Severus with his family

I would bet that Gallic/Germanic immigrants, slaves, and invaders have had more impact on the genetics of Italy since Julius Caesar.

*I realize that some of this is prior to the development of the Greek language, and everything in my post obviously predates the Arabic language/ethnic identity. The descendents of the people I'm referring to generally consider themselves to be Greek, or Arab, so I'm using those terms as a shorthand. I realize it's not entirely accurate.

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."





This is the stupidest part about this.

A lot of italians have dark enough skin to pass as middle eastern/indian. I've known some who have darker skin than latinos and asians.
