    Default Who looks more alike: White Americans and White Canadians or White Argentinians and White Brazilians

    Imo, White Americans and White Canadians look slightly more different from each other than do White Argentinians and White Brazilians, due to the fact that White Canadians have a much larger French input than do White Americans. By contrast, both White Argentinians and White Brazilians are essentially Iberian-Italian mixes with smaller minorities of other European ancestries. However, I'd like to know what others think.

    It depends, whites from the South of Brazil like Rio Grande do Sul are very similar to Argentinians, they even have a similar culture.
    But other Brazilians not so much.
    Then, White Americans and White Canadians are more similar

    Yeah I agree with you, Argentinian and Brazilian whites look very similar, it's those nations' brown people, ie. Argie mestizos and Brazilian pardos that are more distinct.

    I think Canada's whites are less varied than the USA's.

    "Pardo" is not a very exact term btw and in RS the mixed persons also look like the Argentinain mestizos most of the time, except on the big cities

    Yeah but in a general sense throughout all of Brazil, if you picked all the whites, the majority of them would be pale skinned and dark haired majority Iberian-Italian looking people, a lot like the Argentines. If you picked all of the brown people, the pardos, which as you said it yourself is not a very well-defined term, because people within that group vary so much, they would look distinct from the Argentinian mestizos. Northerners would probably be the closest to mestizos but they are a minority of the "pardo" population.

    It's tricky... because in Canada and USA many whites are more homogeneous in the sense that many of them became from one origin (not the most but many), because I think that many of them live in communities according their origin.
    In Brazil and Argentina that usually happens in some rural areas or very little towns but in the cities most people mixed among different origins, so whites are mostly Euro melting pots, all people live together now in general.
    Of course exist people like Argentano who is totally italian descendant or myself, in my case I am mostly of Basque origin, but the youngest people are mostly of diverse origin, and in Brazil I think it's very similar, especially in urban areas.
    So, white americans/canadians are probably more similar among them.
    I clarify... I am not saying that in USA/Canada most people only marry among others with same origin, I know they marry with other diasporas, but I think that at this time is more easy to find people with one ancestry or two than here and in Brazil. Even I could be wrong, I know.

    I voted "both in equal measure" but I think I should have voted for white Brazilians and white Argentinians. Both white populations are basically mostly Iberian/Italian with some minorities of other European ancestries.

    White US Americans and white Canadians, on the other hand, differ in that white US Americans are mostly a British/Germanic mix but also with some important amount of other European contributions added into the mix, while white Canadians have a large percentage of French Canadians, and Anglo-Canadians are more overwhelmingly British compared to white Muricans.

    That's what I think too.

    But it would also depends on the region within US. Whites from New England are mostly of British stock (except in cities like Boston, where the white population is mostly Irish/Italian), and US American whites from most south Eastern states, including Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, and down south (the old south) are also mostly of British stock (including here English, Welsh, Scott and Irish).
