Greeks are most definitely "white". To use the old classifications, they aren't negroid, they aren't mongoloid (yes, that was a racial description and did in fact cause confusion with the term used for certain birth defects), They aren't Amerind, and they aren't "bushmanoid" (can't recall the proper term,. but African bushmen are sufficiently different from the rest of the native african types to get their own classification).

Greeks are "Caucasian"/"Caucasoid".

And those classifications were only slightly based on skin color. There actually *are (minor) skeletal differences, as well as things like hair and various other body features.

And there's even some genetic basis. Things like blood types and some other genes. Researchers are trying to document that sort of thing a *lot* because it's one of the ways of tracing migrations.

It gets harder due to all the interbreeding. Especially in the US.

Greeks are Mediterranean people of color. Classifying them as white was probably done because Western Civilization wanted to take credit for them. They do the exact same thing with the ancient Egyptians, even though the ancient Egyptians were black.

They are darker skinned. So are *most* folks on the north side of the mediterranean.But check other factors.

To the extent that legit science recognizes "races" they are "white"

Also note that they aren't *treated* like PoC.
