Why are southern italians darker than most mexicans?
I traveled around south italy with my family and most people were pretty dark. When I was in Guadalajara, Mexico I ocasionally saw some one with blue eyes and blonde hair (naturally) and in general there were a lot of light people in that part of Mexico, why is this? Aren't italians supossed to be white?

Italians are White-just because they have darker skin, hair and eye color than most Northern Europeans doesnt make them any less White. Mexican is not a race, its a nationality so therefore you can have White Mexicans, Mixed Mexicans or Indiginous Mexicans. Both the Southern Italians and perhaps some of the light skinned Mexicans you saw are considered racially White.
