hooligan said:This may be a little late in the game because it seems this thread has jumped from the orginal subject, whatever that was. Two things, I don't think anyone here has really READ I.A's Droops or my posts, if so, this thread would have died the death it deserves, it's an ignorant observation from people whose only actual knowleadge of Spaniards maybe an Antonio Banderas flick,no offense to Antonio. Stella, I don't mean to be personal or intentionally mean, but your comments about us feeling some kind of superiority twoards the Indiginous folk of South American is dated, and as for us wanting to fit in or prove ourselves to Northern Europeans is laughable. If you knew ANYTHING about Spaniards, you would know the pride we have in who and what we are, this is probably the 6th time I've used those very words, the ones you continue to ignore. Go read some Cervantes, or the tale of Numantia and our wars with Rome. Read about how we were the first country the Romans entered, but the last to be subdued 200 years later. Pick up a book about the Cid or Fernan Gonzalez, hell....go pick up a travel guide and read about the the different provinces of Iberia. I doubt you'll ever know what it's like to be get the duel edge of racism not only from ignorant "whites" but also from 'Latinos" in this country, having to hear how my people raped their lands. No word from them though when you bring up how the Aztecs enslaved poorer tribes or how they flayed the land. Also, De La Croix ...I don't want to get in the middle of your discussion that you are having with I.A., but I read earlier where you stated that the "majority" of French are descended from "Celts" or Germans, I'm assuming you mean Charlamange's Franks. First of all , The Romans hated the Gallic tribes with such passion, many were wiped from the face of the earth after his campaining, it was truely one of the first acts of recorded genocide, and then settled in their lands, have you read Caesars "Gallic Wars"? Also, the Aquitani of southern France were "IBERIANS" who had over run much of the south.Dont' forget the Visigoths that held Provence with the rest of their non Aryan allies from the Black Sea area, such as the Alans, before they spilled into Catalonia. As for the majority of Frenchman being of "northern" lineage, it's just not true, perhaps near the border with Germany, but there is much Latin (Roman) and other Med blood infused there, plus the French Basque element. I hope that in the future we can have a true discussion and that many here will actually read what I and others post instead of skimming it and continuing to argue or comment on things they just don't know.
I did read over those posts. I guess I was wrong, sorry. Take care, lucille
Oh, my god... I knew it!!! You are Lucille!!! You're the same chick (?) who went on about being so blond, pale and pretty with your big blue eyes and how your family prefers you over yoru dark sister. I gave you the benefit of the doubt at first but you've proven to be a troll.
