refer to two groups of people:
1) the ancient hellenes
2) modern greeks
unbeknownst or outright denied by "modern" greeks, there isn't really any relation racially between the hellenes and the "moderns". the slavic migrations between 600-800ad completely overwhelmed greece. the population of greece has always been small, even moreso during those times. constant warfare depleted the population further. the slavs managed to settle thessaly,aetolia,macedonia,thrace and the
peloponesos. virtually every major part of greece, save for boeotia(which is where dislocated albanians settled)was overrun by the slavs. to this day there are still towns with slavic etymology. the "greeks" of today are nothing more than the descendants of hellenized slavs, which was the policy of the church to gain converts, and of the byzantine empire in order to free itself from a two front war against eastern armies of islamic faith. the gene pool of the hellenes, while not completely decimated was absorbed by the slavs.
the slavs were classified as greek speaking, slav speaking, or bulgarian speaking. through the years other ethnicities were thrown into the mix: normans,venetians,romanians,turks egyptians. modern day peoples of the balkans have varying degrees of the admixture of these ethnicities, and the "greeks" are no exception.
it is foolish of the greeks to believe they are directly descended from the ancient hellenes.

A person who has a high taste for OUZO and other hard liquor that you only need one shot to get drunk. They also like to break plates, eat a lot (at least 17 meals a day), and talk a lot and extremely loud. If one is Greek, their names end in "opoulos" or "idis". Also all Greeks are born with a natural instinct to hate, hunt and kill Turks.
There are two types of people in the world; people who are Greek, and people who wish they were Greek.

Almost all Greeks or Greek-Americans are Greek Orthodox, and have strong values on the importance of family.Most greek americans will still call their grandmother "YiaYia" and their Grandfather "Papou" Most greeks are extrememly proud of the great thinks the ancient greeks have done, such as democracy, philosophy, ancient military tactics, etc. Mostly have a strong dislike for people from Turkey, due to the several wars between the two countries. Many young male Greeks in the NYC area self identify with the Italian Guido
lifestyle because of the many similarities between the two cultures (family, food, meditterranean lifesyle, pride of the cultures, etc.) with clothes like armani exchange and gelled hair. Many of these Greek guidos
live in Astoria, Queens. Greek-Americans usually connect very well with other "patriotis" or fellow greeks. Some typical male greek names are Yiannis (john) Yiorgos (George) Constantinos (Gus) Xristos or Christos (Chris) and with last names that end in "os", "as", or "is". Most Greek males greatly value masculinity. All around greeks are very kind and proud people.
