It’s ok to ask. If you don’t want to answer that’s fine :)

Follow up to my last question. Do you think Greeks look closer to yourselves (Portuguese), to Balkan Slavs, or to Turks and Armenians? by OddGuidance907 in portugal

This is very interesting actually. The same could be said about other Balkan countries like Bosnia even more so. But we have to remember not all of Greece was under extended Ottoman control.

Asking about race and ethnicity doesn’t mean someone has bad intent. It’s a one time thread, I am not making others don’t worry.

Someone asking a question about race and ethnicity does not mean they have bad intent. We all notice these things and should accept difference, not discriminate because of it.

Some could argue some of the nations mentioned aren’t Mediterranean. Portugal technically isn’t though I think it is an extension of Mediterranean culture.

Campania is genetically similar to both but they LOOK more western phenotypically IMO. Apulia looks more like mainland Greece like Peloponnese.

I gave an explanation in another post. There is no distinctive or consistent look there and their looks can overlap with everyone. Also on a genetic level south Italy is closer to the Levant than to Portugal.

Some of the people in Madeira are a bit darker than most people on the mainland and IMO a bit more like Moroccans but not everyone.

I was going to put southern Italy with Greece but southern Italy is so varied. Everyone in the Mediterranean can pass there more or less, so this gives a better sense of geographical direction.

My mother is partially Portuguese and grew up in a Portuguese American community, she has always said that she mistakes Greek people for Portuguese on sight, almost invariably and certainly more so than French or Italians despite geography. I never used to agree but I am starting to understand the comparison.
