Mean, sick, and poor is no way to go through life, son.

Why is Spain considered southern Europe? Because they have brown

skin?

It might be because they are in the South?

1) Who gives a fuck?

2) They're not 'brown', just darker and tanned

3) They got invaded and occupied by the Arabs/Moors/Muslims

Lotti,

I try to line them up with France. How far south are they comparing to France?

Sangamon,

Are you saying they are tainted?

You know they have a border with France, right?

There are parts of Spain that are North of parts of France

'Tainted' sounds like a pejorative to me.

The Basques, the Bretons and the Welsh are pretty dark too.

I'm pretty swarthy myself.

You can think of it because of the latitude, or as stuff that touches a lot of the mediterranean.

Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, those weird countries that used to be Yugoslavia. And the 1/4 of France at the bottom.

Skin color isn't a factor so much, although yeah people that live more southern tend to be darker.

Not all Spanish people have dark skin. It varies. Some of them are white crackers like me.

Apparently there is the ultra-white variety, red hair, with freckles like Prince Harry, who can't even get a proper tan even if they tried.

I had a girlfriend like that -- red-hair, fair-skin.  And no, in almost no circumstances would she tan.

But that British/Australian brick-red skin color is a thing, no?

Well if you go south of Spain you hit Africa, so the only reason to ask the question is if you're trying to stir shit up for no reason.

Only if you miss Gibraltar.

Gibraltar is not the Southernmost point of Iberia. That is Tarifa, from which the word tariff allegedly descends.
