    Post Is Argentina really 97% white? The CIA factbook says it is.

    http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/ar.html#People
    white (mostly Spanish and Italian) 97%, mestizo, Amerindian, or other nonwhite groups 3%

    Is this for real or is it the product of a strange way of keeping statistics (for example in the US government stats mestizo Mexicans are often counted as "white hispanic".)

    How many of these 97% Argentine whites could find some place in Europe where they would not look out of place?

    Governmental definitions of "white" are a bad joke.
    Take a look at the FBI's most wanted list and see how people from Pakistan, Mexico, etc are listed as "White." All Arabs, Iranians and Turks are considered "White" by the US government as well.

    These 2 Mexican assholes murdered a 4-year old child:



    Both of them have "Race: White (Hispanic)" listed.

    Right, Argentines are mostly Spanish and Italian, and the ones I've met look completely Southern European. They are on the flatlands, which were not very populated by Amerinds when Columbus arrived.

    Post Re: Is Argentina really 97% white? The CIA factbook says it is.

    Hello,

    I found this on Wikipedia Germany discussion site.
    I just pressed the 'Translate'-button but I think it will suffice.
    These estimates are probably more realistic!


    Diskussion:Argentinien

    from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Mestizen and Indian in Argentina

    How can it be that 30%der Argentinier Mestizen and 5%Indianer are? I read numbers, according to which 95% are European and only 5% Mestizen. That is a difference of 25%! And with the Indians it is still more extreme! In the article it is maintained that 5%(!) Mestizen be-being mine numbers, which are absolutely safe in this connection, speak of 30,000. Those are less than 0.5% of the total population!

    Hello! Good question! That is not completely contradictory, because it is proven indirectly as theory. The official numbers are however different, correct. After my searches of the users Cordobes stopped this paragraph. See: [ 4 ] ( http://de.wikipedia.org/w/wiki.phtml...&oldid=1124868 ) . I will ask it times to describe this section. Oh: Please always with four tildes (~) sign. -- ALE! 16:11, 9. September 2004 (CEST) Now the answer; -) Thus the number of 30% Mestizen are based on estimations, which were implemented by NGOs. I would have to after-investigate this however again exactly, from where (i.e. of which organization concretely) the numbers come. The difference of 25% more or less lies in the definition of the word "Mestize": With the normal censuses clearly less Argentinier than Mestizen or Indians calls themselves, than this would be correct according to opinion of these organizations, since many deny their Indians and/or Mestizen culture, partly from adjustment pressure, in addition, from fear of discrimination. The problem is also that the definition of "Mestize" is not uniform: it is justified partly ethnical, partly culturally. "Indians" is then only someone, which for example still language speaks the indianische as well as its traditional culture continues to maintain - which with many "ethnical" Indians or the only ansatzweise case is not, particularly with those, which left their traditional settlement areas and into a large city are resettled. It takes place here however for some time a reorientation, i.e. ever more humans profess themselves openly to their indianischen origin and culture, also the languages experience a slow Revival. The official numbers are correct however - there 95% are categorized as after "European origin", however approx. 300,000 (and not 30,000) Indians are after the official numbers. The NGOs against it speaks alone of approx. 1.5 million Indians. As proven in the article also, 2004 will probably be implemented special censuses, which is to correct this (wrong) number. That the number of only 5% Mestizen of the reality deviates clearly, shows also a simple view of the faces of humans in Argentine cities. -- Cordobes 03:22, 12. September 2004 (CEST) Supplement: The organization, which makes these "unofficial" estimations, is not however unfortunately the so-called AIRA (Asociación de Indígenas de la República Argentina), (still) Website has (at least do not have I those yet found) - - Cordobes 20:10, 10 November 2004 (CET) The none, which I found was: [ 5 ] ( http://www.fortalecer.org.ar/osc_fic...anizacion=1106 ) There are actually already results special censuses, which should run nevertheless 2004. -- ALE! 09:34, 11 November 2004 (CET) Thus if the special censuses 2004 runs, there are not the data probably before in the middle of 2005. I do not know however whether he would have relevance for this question at all, because in this those are asked approx. 350,000 "officially" persons valid according to INDEC as Indians (there I have me erred further above). I have the "unofficial" estimations from a lecture at the university, therefore I can unfortunately indicate so far no sources. As soon as I find however something, I deliver her subsequently. Uebrignes originates the old number of the Indians, as I now read, from only Indian censuses from the year 1968, thus hopelessly became outdated. -- Cordobes 23:40, 13 November 2004 (CET)

    Argentina is full of Southern Europeans and has several German communities. However 97% is not white. They are counting mixed raced peoples as white.

    They are many white/indian mixes.

    Yes, Argentina was founded by Italians and IS 97% white...

    So, is Uraguay.....I've been to both countries and have a lot of friends there...

    Race mixing is severely frowned upon, and simply doesn't occur.
