VERY good question.

No.

I look Italian okay? Whenever blacks find out or I tell them that I'm Italian, because I suppose I'm half, TOTALLY different approach. I'm not speaking for all black people but in my experience blacks side with Italianos like we's they peoples. Witch is cool, I like that though so its all good. When some of my Italian hommies are kickin it they have the accent and shit and they'll be jokin and spittin game to the haynas with random black fools in the club and shit.

But the answer to you're question is no. Blacks like kickin it with Italian heads. I never really wondered what it was like that but yeah. Maby because we have flavor and we like gettin pussy. Italian men will do ANYTHING to get a woman. We treat our women with respect and we tell them what ever they want to hear as long as we can hit that, and even if we can't we still treat them good. Haha don't believe me go to Italia. Or New York, New Jersey you get the picture. Shit, and if you think blacks are packin it, once you go Italian you ain't EVER GOIN BACK!! haha probally cause no other man will want that lose ass once were done with it!! Haynas know whats up.

Some do, because they know Italians are considered white. Some blacks want to be Italian & some don't even realize Italians are white.

yeah. i know what your saying. lost me a little at the end. lol

I gotta say, i know what you mean. I get a lot of love from black people. I think they resepct italians more than they do most other white people.

Black girls that date white guys love italians too.

They may consider us white, but deep down, they know whats up.

How about Macedonians? Cause we got whiter and darker Macedonians, different shades of Macedonians. Just like you have reddish paleish Americans.

Hehehehe...

You Prussian bastard. :D Nah I'm just kidding. :P

The Greeks murdered my grandfather's brother and kicked out my grandfather's family and millions of other Macedonians out of the region and refuse to recognize our minority there, so it's very personal and I have a reason to hate them just like my friend has a reason to hate the Albanians for being pussies one on one but always messing around when in numerical superiority and has a reason to beat down 3 of them...

Greeks aren't like the ones you see in 300 with the Spartans and shit. Don't be fooled. That's 2000 years ago they've been pussinized by now, they aren't tough, they are soft, not hard, they rely on big paychecks, Western support, they just don't fit in with the rest of the Balkans, different mentality and lifestyle, they are the outsider here just like the Albanians. They are more for places like America and Germany, more Westernized...

Hm, yea i know that some unfair shit has been going on there. But the Greeks say the same about the Turks and Albanians. They pretty much live off their past and their historical achievements, when nowadays Greece is a pretty messy country. Even my friend says that. I still consider them good people and they like Germans even though we did some cruel stuff to them during WW2. But you dont ever have to worry about them invading you. My friend is doing his military service at the moment and he said that they have AA Guns out of the 70s there still, lol.
Talking about WW2. Italy was Germanys closest allie during WW2 and considered to be part of Hitlers master race, that should tell you what they considered themselves. And they still think of themselves as white.
But in my impression they think of themselves as Catholics first, then as descendants of the Romans and then as white people.

Blacks have always respected us Italians here in NY. We're white but at the same time different.
We're as cool as it gets ;O) lol

I think the Mafia influence gave us a certain respect and fear from others. That's part of why we're considered white but not quite. Plus lots of us are dark (like me.....being Siciliano).

Us Italians were called "nigga turned inside out" alot by "regular" whites. So lots of whites don't consider us white either lol

But Jews are Arabs. You calling us Arabs? If you are, we have something in common because North Africans are considered Arabs.

Caucasian = Caucuses + Asia :P

Yeah but umm look at the pictures the guy with the big nose is pale and red like an Englishman plus he's blond a bit and the kid that looks like a seahorse the one kissing the girl he's born that way not tanned...

How do you classify us since both of them are pure Macedonians??? Unless the one with the nose that could cut down wood is from Albania cause he has blue eyes... :P

You don't have to be ultra pale and English looking to be "white", just like you don't have to be dark brown/black skinned Nubian looking person to be "black". It's just a way of saying "European", basically. If you're a native European or desended from native Europeans your "white". If you're a middle eastern, central Asian or north african caucasian you have a shot a being accepted as white. If you're an East Asian, your skin could be as white as a piece of dry wall and you're still not "white" because you're not Caucasian. That's how it works in the U.S.
