    Most "Germanic" Southern European Country?

    Hi, so I'm an Englishman living in Madrid (28 years old) and have travelled through Spain, Italy and Greece. Personally, I don't agree with Stormfronters who say Italians or Greeks are "White". In England the word "White" usually doesn't apply to Meds. However, living in Madrid I have mixed feelings. I don't find the people to be culturally Mediterranean at all: it's a much more orderly city than chaotic Athens or Rome, the people are NOT outgoing in any way and can be quite "cold" - rarely will someone speak to you in a bar or cafe if they don't know you and although there's a lot of bureaucreacy, it's "efficient" compared to Italy. Physically, of course, there are all types of Spaniards although most are lighter than one would think.

    The Spaniards are also openly quite hostile to foreigners, especially South Americans and Moroccans and if there's something that could be said for southern euros is that they defend their turf much more than Northern Europeans. I don't know why this is the case as I also tend to think of people here as rather cowardly as in, they need to do everything in groups. Any thoughts?

    Well in my oppinion South Europeans are also not very "White". French (or shall I say what's left of them due to whole this multiculturalism they practise...) are racialy moast "White" by their phenotype in my oppinion (pure ones of corse), together with certen North Italians. However, with their mentality, they're boath very gypsysh if you know what I meen. Spaniards on the other hand, as you told yourself are a bit darker, but way better when it commes to menthality (PS. I don't know abouth Spaniards, I was onley in Barcelona and from what I know they concidere themselves for Catalonians). I've never been to Portugal, but from what I've heard they're all one big race-mix of "Whites" and blacks. And as far Greeks are concidered, I totaly don't concider them White anymore scince they boath look like turks, and from what I've herd (and I heard a lot of first hand experiences because lot of my mates (my mother as well when it commes to that) were there so they were telling their impressions) behave like turks as well. So all in all, Spaniards French and Italians are bit better while Greeks and Portuguesse are almost not White at all.

    Lightness or darkness of pigment are no good indicator of Germanicness. The South Tyrolese are on average quite a bit darker than the Finns, yet are clearly a lot more Germanic.

    As to your initial question: The most Germanic area of those that are not frequently recognised as such (as per cultural, linguistic and/or ethnic ties), would perhaps be Northern Italy, as per a link back to the Longobards who later dropped their Germanic tongue.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Italy, because of their occupation of South Tyrol.

    Once South Tyrol is liberated, the answer will be France, because of their occupation of Alsace-Lorraine.

    It's one of those academic questions that does not have a very meaningful answer.

    The French are not southern European in any case. Genetically, it is Slovenians, Croatians and Catalonian Spanish. I don't know about South Tyroleans but north Italians in general are not close.
