Even in appearance, fewer and fewer Spaniards match the popular image of short, swarthy and dark, and the indigenous population includes blondes, brunettes and redheads.
Although not nearly as marked or rigidly defined as the British or French class systems, Spain has a complex class structure.
Men of Spanish descent have beautiful big eyes, luscious lips and thick hair.
Since they are right off the coast, they have this olive skin that keeps a natural bronzed glow all year long.
In fact, women of color in our program were specifically told about how we could be treated, as sexualized prostitutes, because, people of our color, where “always” selling ourselves on street corners.The top drawer of Spain’s aristocrats are the 400 or so grandees, who are followed at a respectable distance by myriad minor nobles, all of whom tend to keep to themselves and remain aloof from the hoi polloi.Next in pecking order are the middle class professionals, the lower middle class white-collar workers, the blue-collar working class and the peasant underclass.Specifically, something that yesterday’s post mentions, a preference for the blonde, skinny, white girl. Now let’s get this clear, I was not looking for anything concrete, anything long term, since I was only in Madrid for 6 short months.But after the first month when most of the guys I met were asking about my two friends in the program, who were both blonde and blue eyed, I started to feel a bit peeved.
