Why are Spanish women so much more beautiful than other women? Is it just a genetical coincidence or has it something to do with having a superior genepool?
dame novia española pls
Why are Castiza women so much more beautiful than other women? Is it just a genetic coincidence or has it something to do with a superior gene pool?
We call them, I don't know, that category don't exist since the colony.
you have no idea what are you talking.
Still, how exactly do you know that? I mean after years and years and years of mixing, you can't know for sure if someone is mestizo (which is half spanish half indian), because those kind of things don't happen anymore. Mestizo and castizo couldn't apply in the original sense anymore.
I've never heard the word Germanic used in real life. Does that make it an non-existent category?
Then a new word needs to be created that isn't vague as fuck like Hispanic or Latino to encompass all people of mixed Amerindian and European heritage. Until then, castizos are people who are 3/4ths white or leaning towards the European side, and mestizos are people who are around half white or leaning towards the Amerindian side.
>castizos are people who are 3/4ths white or leaning towards the European side, and mestizos are people who are around half white or leaning towards the Amerindian side.
sure, the problem is, outside this threads, no one really uses that word IRL.
is because more of our countries are like +400 years old and all kind of mixes have happened. You could be saying mestizo or castizo when that person is part chinese, african, spanish, amerindian, italian, arab...
Those terms makes not really that much sense anymore in places so culturally complex as the americas
Why are Cuban women so much more beautiful than other women? Is it just a genetical coincidence or has it something to do with having a superior genepool?
As someone who interacts with Cubans fairly often, that pic isn't anything special or amazing
(also, to be fair, cuba has a large african-descended population and poverty class that I imagine that you aren't accounting for)
>should give the slightest shit about whiteness
We use words like French, German and English when the people are also very ethnically diverse. What matters is the majority of the blood, not some bygone ancestor from three hundred years ago.
>Really, why should they
You've got to admit, that was awful.
Spaniards are mostly white, there are a few of them who are more arab than fucking muhammed, and they love to make those people 'artists' in that country, so it's not that hard to find them online.
Even romans saw iberians as dark people.
>"... the swarthy faces of the Silures, the curly quality, in general, of their hair, and the position of Spain opposite their shores, attest to the passage of Iberians in old days and the occupation by them of these districts; ..." (Tacitus Annales Xi.ii, translated by M. Hutton)
Pick up a history book. You don't even know what the term "Moor" means in the proper sense. If you did, you'd know that the vast majority of Moors were native Spanish and Portuguese converts to Islam, rather than Berbers or Arabs. For this reason, any mixing between Christians and Moors was not a matter of racial miscegenation; a fact substantiated by geneticists who have poured over the Spaniards for several decades now, always concluded that the population has remained much the same since the Neolithic.
It's also worth noting that the vast majority of modern Spaniards look precisely as the Romans described them: relatively short, dark haired, agile, and tending toward swarthiness. It's no wonder that they postulated a relatedness between Iberians and the Welsh Silures.
But I say again, I see no reason why Spaniards or Portuguese ought to care about moronic concepts like whiteness which, in truth, have very little purpose outside the New World. If you mean to say that they should feel bad about themselves for not meeting your arbitrary standards of racial hygiene, I would say that the only people who suffer by the exclusion of Iberians from the white race is whites themselves.
They made these portraits for Greeks, Italians and Spaniards.
The Northern Spanish are completely white. Southern Spaniards have a north African admixture.
> moronic concepts like whiteness
top tier shitskin inferiority complex
>mfw summer is ending and my golden tone is fading away
>The Northern Spanish are completely white. Southern Spaniards have a north African admixture.
That's bullshit. As a northern spaniard I can't tell anyone apart till I heard their accents. I have a friend that was nicknamed Cola Cao when we were kids, pic related.
Yeah. Which is why it's regarded as the worst portrait pack by the CK2 community. Hands down. Anyone who uses it only does so because it adds variety; not because they actually like it.
And the sad part is that the original renders didn't have that ugly-ass skin tone. They just do in-game.
Once again, you know nothing about their history. Southern Iberia, being the final destination of the reconquista, saw the harshest expulsions of Moors and Muladis. We find that, for example, in Galicia there are traces of haplogroup E3b which are absent in, say, Andalucia. This coincides with the much earlier relgation of Berbers to the region during their infamous rebellions after their adoption of the Kharijist heresy.
And for what it's worth, what Spanish ancestry I do have is from northern Spain. By your own admission this makes me racially acceptable by your asinine standards.
>go to the beach one day yes one day no this last weeks
>still not tanned
>the summer is over
And of course you have lived all your life in Spain and travelled all around the country. Pic related, a northerner.
Except because that's false. The fucking Boabdil (last king of Granada) was blonde with fair eyes, compare him to his Aragonese counterpart.
This country is extremely mixed, it's not like the usa or parts of the big cities where ethnicities are concentrated in places, the mass migrations to this place ended 1000 years ago, a lot of time has passed so you can find any kind of color anywhere, really.
Shut it down bro! They are becoming the great majority!
>Not the whitest place on earth.
So... you're Spanish, huh?
I know. Blondes in Andalucia and Valencia, brunettes in Cantabria and Navarra and all things in between. Spain and Portugal were two of the most phenotypically diverse places I've ever visited, and in neither case is it proof of racial impurity like that jackass namefag is pretending.
No, Ferdinand the Catholic, who conquered Granada for his bitch. Isabella, you probably heard about her because she was awesome.
There's no portrait of Boabdil, king of Granada, that wasn't made after his death and/or by muslims. So all his portraits show him darker than night. But descriptions of the time disagree with the paintings.
Yep man, just leave him, he has spent too much time on the site, I hope you liked the visit by the way.
Here, a qt
I remember reading an article some time ago that Spain needed to rely on foreign students to keep the flamenco tradition alive. IDK if that holds truth today.
Do you like flamenco yourself?
I really love the complex yet melodic rhythms. The singing is nice but can get tiresome after a while...
So what about this do you not like?
