    Well I consider the Northern Italians to be normal White people, Southern Italians and Greeks to be Swarthy White people. However, I don't even consider the Spaniards or Portuguese to be White. The Portuguese are Mulattoes (a mix of Sub Saharan African and European) and the Spaniards are mostly European but still have a non-negligible amount of Northern African and sub Saharan African ancestry so they are not pure White.

    As opposed to what? Pale whites...

    There are some people who are paler and other people who are swarthier like anywhere else in Europe. Obviously people from Southern Europe tend to be darker than people from Northern Europe.

    Every time I hear/read swarthy, I think of... swarthy Germans.

    Ben Franklin said: 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.

    You don't know anyone from these places then 

    98% of Greeks I know have milky white clean skin without freckles or moles 

    Northern Italians and Spanish are white 

    Portuguese are kinda "more brunette " but still white for the most part 

    I know one Japanese / Greek mixed chef his name is Sotiris Kontizas and his Greek wife is very white while he's swarthy

    "eye-talians"

    Let me guess, you're a native English speaker who hasn't even mastered his own language yet.

    North Italians, North Portuguese, and North Spaniards tend to be white comparable to Anglo. The southern ones are the more tanned/swarthy looking.

      That's sort of a myth, maybe.
