View Full Version : Do You Consider Ringo Starr White?

Thursday, June 26th, 2003, 02:42 PM
Question is also simple. As there are people that think that Penelope Cruz looks Middle Eastern I would like to do a poll to ask you if you consider Ringo Starr fully white. I mean, probably Penelope Cruz is 90% white (and 10% gypsy or moorish). I think Ringo Starr is not 100% white (he doesn´t look 100% white, so he shouldn´t be considered white either), he also has some kind of Middle Eastern look.

As I don´t like double standards. Do you consider Ringo Starr (the Beatles musician) to be White?.

yes i certainly do,should i be proved wrong well and good but until then i view him as perfectly white and rather cute :D

Yeah, he looks 'white' to me as well. He's dark, but there does not seem to be anything non-Europid about his facial features.

talk about pretty blue grey eyes! and he has lovely brown hair i know pigmentation isnt paramount when classifying someone but his features look lovely and europid to me..as his nose is rather large maybe there is a dinaric element to him? i believe they have prominent noses thats my onle reason for suggesting it really...

He sure is white to me. I think without the shaggy hair he would appear quite differently. But all the pics without the moptop he is older and has a beard....darn. Basically, he just has a big nose. I don't think that makes him non-white. He looks more white than Mr. Bean LOL

Yeah, good call. In the first pic his nose looks a bit downturned. Maybe that is just an effect of the camera angle or something, though?

This is an idiotic thread. There is absolutely no basis whatsoever for considering this man to be a nonwhite.

Is he white? Yes. Does he look Middle Eastern? Sort of, He looks like some Cypriots(Turk and Greek) I know.

Those who voted 'no' must be using a more esoteric understanding of whiteness than the generally understood one. Perhaps they are reading the question as whether he is Nordish (debatable), whether they find him attractive or would like their sister to marry him (irrelevant to an objective assessment), or whether he resmbles one of the guys in Nazi propaganda posters (lol). Although I voted 'yes' to Cruz's whiteness (and stand by it), I think Ringo is far more centrally white/Europid (if I may invent such a term!) than her.

His unusual nose just looks odd on him - it would not look peculiar on a tall nord. One must expect that subracial mixture will sometimes throws up odd-looking phenotypes. (The Beatle that I 'question' is Lennon. How could he stand cohabiting with Yoko Ono?)

he is white,i also think that penelope is white so i could be utterly wrong on all counts or i may just be less bothered about whether ppl are centrally nordish or not than a lot of people here ;)
i think he has a nice nose as ive said before and he has light hair and eyes aswell as what look to me to be utterly europid features.the only thing up for questioning (and not by me) is that he has ''dark'' skin ie hardly porcelain white and this may be what is making people see a nonwhite influence?
i cant say i agree if that is it,i like his colouring it suits him!
