The Romans were not White. They were Brown people. Why are White people in denial about this?

They resembled the rest of the population of the Mediterranean like the North Africans, Arabs, Turks etc.

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.

    White people can get a nice tan and be brown people too. I suppose they're very versatile.

    The Romans and the Greeks were white because they were European.

    Many white Europeans come in different shades some super pale some olive complexion due to the sunlight giving them tans but they are still white.

    If you have any doubt about their racial background all one needs to do is look at the statues do they look like "brown" people to you? No.

    Having a tan doesn't make someone no longer a white person.

    Race goes beyond the color of ones skin but their bone structure, their DNA etc.

    Even most middle eastern people are white and considered Caucasian by racial standards of categorizing. Brown people would properly be categorized by people of South East Asia and India and people who are biracial or of mixed black heritage.

    You sound like someone who is really insecure with themselves and their race that you could even ask such a dumb question like that.

      They are ethnic white. Within the Human Race there is technically only 3 races of people which include Caucasoid, Mongoloid and ******* Races. Some include a 4th called the Australoid race while everything else are ethnicities of those races.

    Would you consider The Spanish to be white? The natives of Mexico sure did when they invaded Mexico.

    White people didn't even evolve the mutation for fair skin until around 10,000 years ago and the concept of "race" during Roman and Greek era didn't even exist back then. Why are you so butthurt and racist?

    Even if you take away the Greeks and Romans, there are still civilizations built by white people that are quite impressive. The Goths (same people that overthrew the Romans), Vikings (Scandinavia), Pagans, etc. All were very advanced for their time.

    The same goes for African and Asian civilizations. You're just a butthurt little pansy who hates white people

      European just = white. Has nothing to do with skin. It's like saying Asian= Asian which includes Indians and other south Asians.

    Another insane racist. Just because the target of your lies are white rather than brown or black doesn't mean your rant isn't racist.
