Hell I am from Eastern Europe, and I still hate cold weather. A lot of the people who think that weather preferences are based on race use some really outdated stereotypes

Sorry everyone, but Phoenix is a fiery hell most of the year.

My optometrist specifically said that I would have enhanced sensitivity to light because of my eye color, and it would get worse with time. Therefore, I wear sunglasses all the time outdoors, even under lower ambient lighting conditions. I feel like I can get some relief well north of 45N latitude in terms of manageable sun angle intensity. I am strongly considering relocating to the Pacific Northwest in a few years.

There is some truth to the whole race and weather preference relationship, though. I notice that Whites complain more about heat and humidity than Blacks and Asians, understandable, because the home continent that Whites hail from does not have an area of hot, humid subtropical/tropical climates.

It's not a bad thing, but I prefer northern latitude sun intensity.

There are humid climates in Italy and Greece and to a lesser extent Spain
