Of course hispanics are not discriminated against as much by white women because most of them are white. Same race people just different cultures and sometimes language. If the person speaks spanish and you think they look black then guess what? They are black but also happen to be hispanic!
True, but I think most understand what she was referring to when she stated Italian (i.e. dark hair, dark eyes, tanned skin). Of course there are blond Italians, but I am referring to the "classic" Italian/European look.

They may be "Caucasian" on paper, but there is a clear difference in phenotype.

I recall when I was in college, an Egyptian guy (who had brown skin) was telling everyone that he was Caucasian as well, but interestingly, no one seemed to care, because they viewed him as North African/Arab.

Actually, if you are from northern Italy or Europe, lighter is the "classic" Italian look.

The "classic" Italian look you reference is the American version based upon the immigrants who arrived in this country who were from the lower socio-economic side of Italy and Europe and typically much darker skinned.

Good thing these blonde sluts from good schools and families overlook your sons' bad coloring!

"Bodies are vastly more important than faces?" Yes, if your a pack mule.

"Bamabangs"???

Here's a nonwhite with bamabangs. As you can see, they work. http://image.cdnl3.xosnetwork.com/pi...0714151234.jpg

Well... "if you're a 'pack mule' " ... or packin' like one....

I'm pretty sure that when we are walking though an eatery, and women slam their fists down on the table after our sons walk by, that it is not the boys' faces which are getting those females' so worked-up.

Our sons don't sleep with sluts. No smokers - no druggies - no precious princesses working on 'communications' degrees. When we lived in the South, they were called "Granolas". Around here, they're just called 'normal'. Anyway, I'm used to seeing most of them around our breakfast table. They're nice girls.

DH and I just refer to them as 'The Harem' (referring to the way stallions keep harems). Most are busy resident physicians. A couple are fledgling attorneys. I think it's just some sort of extended Friends With Benefits arrangement.

I choose to believe what people say unless I see a reason not to, so I am accepting that this is his photo.

Since he keeps asking about 'In America' it makes me think he is not from here, so he has an accent or other things that set him apart.

And the Greek thing is huge.

Dating a white guy that was not in a frat was problematic for me because it took me away from my social group.

I had to be with his friends - great people but I missed mine.

Obviously my closest friends would do things with us, but we could not together hang out with everyone (who everyone was to me) and I missed that a lot.

There is no way I would have been open minded enough to date someone from India.

As an adult, I did date an Arabic man (also white, but most people don't see it that way) and that was incredibly difficult with my friends and co-workers.

The Muslim thing did not help matters, but I think they would have been just as prejudiced if he were Christian.

ANYWAY, the OP is going to have a problem until he's not seeking unattainable sorority girls and gets to an age where women start to think for themselves and date who they like regardless of ethnicity or what have you.

The problem is absolutely not looks, that is for sure.

That's your first mistake. Realize that this is the net, and many people make up all sorts of things for entertainment or for a host of other reasons.
