COMMENTS:
Their physical make-up is European (facial structure etc), even if their skin is tanned and their hair greasy!
White is a racist term.

European-american (it doesn't matter if they actually are american) is the prefered nomenclature.

They do not have a straight nose, and they still have thicker lips than Europeans.

Also, they have MUCH darker skin, which to the best of my knowledge is actually biologically different from that of caucasians, and they have negroid hair, not caucasian.

Why are you so bothered about this anyway?

Italians are white, deal with it.

and before you get all irrational and upset, Negroid = black. Its in the dictionary.
Which Italians the blonde ones or the dark haired ones? If it suits you why not just refer to them as mediterranean just like some europeans are scandinavian, slavic and germanic. Does that suit your needs better? There are all kinds of ways to classify people including language. Italian is considered indo-european. By the way Indians (the ones from India) classify themselves as caucasian. You perseverate on skin tone, and skintone alone does is not a sole classification of a group of people. I really don't understand why this is an issue. You sound exactly like cutegirl, are you her?
who considers them white?
^Fellow skinheads in Italy.
In general, European Caucasians are called "white". Now some Caucasians in the Near East and North Africa are indistinguishable from those in Southern Europe, but they're not normally considered white.
The finest civilization was born in Rome, so the white people certainly want to claim the Italians as their own. Toilets, baths and central heating were developed thousands of years ago in Italy. While the rest of Europe was still picking nits from their hair, Iyalians were luxuriating in spas. Call them what you will but civilized is what comes to my mind.
Voted : Because they just are
I have italian in my family, they are white, and don't call them otherwise or my favorite uncle will turn italian sausage out of you, and he sure can cook ;)
My father's family is from reggio amelia in the north of italy. We are tall, slender, light olive-skinned, green-eyed, and have facial and body structure of the european. Yet, I do believe that given Italy's locale, it makes sense that there has been mixing over the millenia. How could that be argued?
Voted : Because they just are
Many Northern Italians are more whites than Germans or Brits. Unfortunately, this forum is full of poor ignorants. Don't want to waste my time with you. Come to Italy and see.
Voted : Because they just are
italians are white!!!!Only in the south we have a non-white!!
Voted : Because they just are
they are white.
lmao italians arent white i mean all italians i see they are pretty much the closest thing to black people i have seen
Im italian , and my family does not consider themselves white..we are of latin culture .
im 25% italian and 25% sicilian and i have black hair, brown eyes, and olive skin tone. i dont consider myself white more like multiracial with white and mediterranean islander.
see what is wrong with this question is you asking about their skin tone. people arent caucasian because fo their skin tone its of their ancestry. french portuguese spanish and italians are all dark yet they are caucasian. so just think about the nationality and forget about the skin tone..
italians are the whitest people around
they are white because Italy is in Europe
im italian and dont consider myself white
He don't know what hes talking asbout. Italianos are NOT white!!!!!!!!!!
Voted : i believe it is christianity
italians are basically the same as jews, and arabs, but it is christianity that defined them as white.
44% of the people that said that italians are not white probably they never went to school,open a book about anthropology or put a step in Italy, especially North Italy.
Well let me show you how all this people are a simple idio...

The majoritie of the "italians" in America are from sicily, sicily is an island like Hawaii in america that became part of italy 150 years ago, Italy was divided before 1861 in 3 states, north,south and central. Italians are not a race,german are not a race, european in general are not a race, so they can came in various shape,color, and size.
Anyway sicilian and south italy are different from north and central italians by physical looks,genetics,history,cuisine,culture and language, sicilian got discrimination on the ww2 by north italians and escaped to america.

Italians are white and is not a choice is a fact like it or not

also in america read this article below germans,sweden,italians,irish french don't was considered white, are you serrious? lol america is very confuse

The other objection that Ben Franklin had to German immigrants was their "swarthy complexion", which was an affront to the "purely white people" who originally settled America:

Why should Pennsylvania, founded by the English, become a Colony of Aliens, who will shortly be so numerous as to Germanize us instead of our Anglifying them, and will never adopt our Language or Customs, any more than they can acquire our Complexion.


24. Which leads me to add one Remark: That the Number of purely white People in the World is proportionably very small. All Africa is black or tawny. Asia chiefly tawny. America (exclusive of the new Comers) wholly so. And in Europe, the Spaniards, Italians, French, Russians and Swedes, are generally of what we call a swarthy Complexion; as are the Germans also, the Saxons only excepted, who with the English, make the principal Body of White People on the Face of the Earth. I could wish their Numbers were increased. And while we are, as I may call it, Scouring our Planet, by clearing America of Woods, and so making this Side of our Globe reflect a brighter Light to the Eyes of ......
