Who is less white, Turks, Jews, Italians, Greeks or Spanish?
Neither are considered white, but who is less white?

What kind of question is this?! It fails badly on two levels. The first one being, obviously, the fact that all those people are white, with the exception of Mizrahi Jews, who should be addressed as "Hebrews" rather than "Jews" at any rate. And of course all those countries have non-white minorities, Kurds in Turkey, Gitanos in Spain, and so on. And there are those non-white people in the relevant countries who address themselves as a person of the relevant ethnicity when they really aren't. They're simply mixed race, whether they accept it or not. Such people are to be found in Southern Italy, Eastern Turkey, and Southern Spain. Scattered over Greece too.
Here are some dark-featured people from those countries that look white to me, and probably like green little Martians to you:

The other logic error is that there is no such thing as less white or more white, only white and non-white. A person can have mostly white genes, and in that case, there are scientific definitions of whether he's considered white or not, based on the recessiveness and dominance level of the genes involved. Calling someone more white because he's blond, or less white because he has brown eyes, is despised even by racists themselves. It's called Nordicism, and Nordicists are seen as traitors to the white race, even by the proponents of white supremacism.

There are Lots of Fair-skinned, Blue-eyed, Blonde Spanish and Italians.
There are Fair skinned, blue-eyed Jews in Israel--from Germany, N. Europe,
I'm sure there are a few White Turks, of Circassian lineage.
I've seen fair-skinned, Blue-eyed, Blonde and Redheaded Mexican Girls. They were Mexican--so, what if their ancestors were French or German? They were Babes....
Stereotypes will get you nowhere.
EDIT: @W: True. The Italians had indoor plumbing while the English were painting each other blue.

Every group you mentioned is White. White doesn't equal blonde haired, blue eyed, fair skinned Northern Europeans!!
Oh, that's funny! Because in Ancient times, ALL of those groups (and Mediterraneans in general) had highly sophisticated civilizations, while Northern Europeans were still swinging from trees and were seen as barbarians. I'm not saying that makes us superior (I'm not that narrow minded, like you obviously are), but if ANYONE were, it certainly wouldn't be YOUR people.
That IS true.
Also, at that time, the fair skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes of the Northern Europeans were seen as traits of barbarism. Obviously, they AREN'T. But what I'm saying is that's what they thought back then - now it's the opposite...Source(s): I'm an Italian-American
