The Romans were not White. They were Brown people. Why are White people in denial about this?
Modern day Italians sort of look White because they're mixed with Celtic and Germanic blood.
All those ''ancient statues'' that look White are fake. Its impossible to find 3000 year old statues in good condition without a single scratch.
White people like to claim Rome and Greece because they don't have any ancient civilisation to be proud of. Whites didn't accomplish much before the industrial revolution which was very recent.
