im a mix between spanish and italian. both my parents are white as well as most of my family. i just consider myself white but technically i am half hispanic as well. if i was much darker i would probably consider myself hispanic, but most people from spain are much lighter than people from south america because there is no native american in there blood.

brief history lesson for the unknowing.....

The original LATINS WERE ITALIANS! The romans came after the etruscans of italy. The etruscans spoke an asian langauge! They were a bronze skinned people with black hair and brown eyes, they were not germanic nor were they blond and fair skinned! they Numbered in the millions prior to the ascendence of the romans aka the LATINIS.
The LATINIS eventually conquered all of central italy and than eventually all of western europe including spain!
Most countries in southern europe who speak a "romance" language are considered LATIN, because theyre countries were colonized by LATINIS AKA Romans in ancient times.
"Latino" in spanish simply means "Latin".....
Its kind of a big misnomer that Spaniards and their new world offspring are considered true "latins", because in all reality the real latins have always been the central Italians.

All this confusion with what Italians considered themselves racially started when the Lombards and the Goths invaded Italy and brought about the demise of the Roman empire.
Italy became heavily Mixed in racial composition after the 4th century AD, again due to relentless Germanic Invasion from Central Europe.
The germanic tribes and their racial imprint has always been far more apparent in the north of Italy, because of its close proximity to Germany, than that of southern Italy which is still to today largely composed of Italian people of INDIGENOUS ITALIAN STOCK I.E. NON-NORTHERN EUROPEAN PEOPLEs.
The Sicani and the Elemi of southern Italy and sicily(sicani is a derivative of the word sicily), might as well be another country seperate from that of northern Italy....Southern Italians are typically dark, and average in height, displaying practically no Nordic/germanic characteristics.

DONT FORGET also that southern Italy and sicily were conquered several times over in the 8th century by ARABS/MOORS.
That also greatly impacted the racial composition of that region.

and oh yeah......DONT listen to the US census, their full of shit and their racial classifications are devices of ethnic cleansing.
They once even considered Native american Indians and Non white Mexicans to be lily "white".
Their deductions are nothing short of nonsense!

oh yeah one more thing....REAL IBERIANS WERE NOT "WHITE".
Before spain was settled by the germans, the arabs, the romans, the celts, and the greeks...their were Iberians from whom the peninsula is named after.
They were yet another bronze skinned race with black hair and brown eyes, many believe that they immigrated from central africa, but thats just speculation.
I wouldnt even consider the real iberians "caucasion"...real caucasions are northern europeans, fair skinned brown or blonde haired people.
So dont give me all that "they were caucasion though" bologna.

WELL SPANIARDS I THINK ARE CONSIDER TO BE HISPANIC NEVER THE LESS WHITE-HISPANICS.

SO BASICALLY YOUR SAYING SINCE YOU ARE AS DARK YOU ARE NOT HISPANIC YOU SOUND CONFUSED DUDE WHERE DOES HISPANICDRAW THE COLOR LINES IS PENELOPE CRUZ ANY LESS HISPANIC THAN YOU OR MORE? SHE S WHITE.

NATIVE AMERICANS IN SOUTH AMERICA? NO, AMERINIDIANS YES NATIVE AMERICA IS A UNITED STATES TERM AND NATIVE AMERICANS AND SPANIARDS ARE NOT THE ONLY PEOPLE IN S. AMERICA!

SOME SOUTH AMERICAN COUNTRIES HAS LESS AMERINDIANS THAN AFRICANS.

THERE ARE SOME WHITES THAT HAVE SOME KIND OF AMERINDIAN BLOOD OR ANCESTRY IN THEM BUT THEY ARE WHITE.

S AMERICAN WHITES ARE NOT ONLY OF SPANISH ORIGIN BY PROBABLY ALL OF WESTERN EUROPE IMMIGRANTS TO S AMERICA.

LOOK AT ARGENTINA.

argentina was always a spanish colony....but in reality other european groups always outnumbered the spanish there.
You have large numbers of northern Italians and Germans and even some russians....thus the nation is of course the "whitest" in south america, but largely due to other european groups, and not the spaniards!

Cubans are the whitest of the main latino groups in the USA. Least white probably Dominicans or Salvadorans.

Penelope Cruz looks white to anybody who's not a neo-nazi aryanist type.
