Contrary to popular opinion, NOT all Sicilians are dark, so by saying, and I quote,
"they have features like dark curly hair, thick eyebrows and lips, and olive colored skin. Anyone from a place in the Mediteranean sea shoud have those features"
YOU ARE WRONG and you have obviously never spent a lot of time in the Mediterranean or in Sicily because most Sicilians are a mix, as the island was conquered by many different types of people. There are plenty of blond, blue and light Sicilians, just as many as black and dark and curly. Minchia!
Chi talii, sugnu sicula! What are you lookin at, I'm Sicilian!

A person from the island of Sicily, or a person whose ancestors came from Sicily. Although the Italian language became the official language of Sicily, Sicilians still speak Sicilian (Sicilianu, not Siciliano) amongst their friends and families.

Sicily is famous for its folk music, food, culture, crime, dark features, and sexy women (and we guys are lady magnets too).

Sicily has been colonized by many different peoples over the past 5000 years. Both white and black, as well as Arab, Greek, French, and Spanish have took over the island. Sicilians are generally dark skinned and have dark features because the dark genes seem to always take over the light genes.

Some of us Sicilians are offended when people say they have negro genes, but I'm ok with that. Proof that we have negro genes is that Sicily has a high rate of sickle cell disease. Sickle cell disease only affects blacks or people with black ancestors. If you look at a sickle cell disease distribution map, the only places where sickle cell is present is Africa, USA, parts of the Middle East, Brazil, some Caribbean islands, and Sicily (and some of south Italy).
Sicilian folk song (that young Vito Corleone sings on Ellis Island):

Avia nu sciacarreddu
Ma veru sapuritu
A mia mi l'amazzari
Poveru sceccu miu.

Person from Sicily. Person with an Italian last name and features like dark curly hair, thick eyebrows and lips, and olive colored skin. Anyone from a place in the Mediteranean sea shoud have those features, includes people from Sicily, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Albania, and Mali, they all look alike.

Someone from Sicily. Our language is different from that of mainland, so we are not "Italian". Sicilian people are Mediterranean, but not all of us have black hair and olive skin, though the majority do. We love our families and value them above anything else. In the words of Vito Corleone, a man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man. Oh, also, we are not all in the Mafia.
I am half Sicilian. My brother is half Sicilian. We both have dark green eyes, white skin, and light brown and dark blonde hair respectively. Also, neither of us are affiliated in any way with the Mafia.

A people coming from the Italian island region of Sicily. Many Sicilian-AMERICANS claim to be different and "better" than other Italians without actually having any evidence to back it up. Sicily was historically part of the same kingdoms of the rest of southern Italy and the Roman Empire, and was not the only Italian region to have been invaded by a large number of peoples and to have absorbed their cultures. Italy was cut up into many kingdoms before unification, and thus each region has their own distinct culture which they put before a united Italian culture. They ARE Italian.
“To have seen Italy without seeing Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all..."-Goethe

"Someone from the southern island of Sicily would first be Siciliano, then Italian. A Fiorentino from the central region of Tuscany would sooner declare allegiance to la Toscana than he would to a Calabrese...who in turn would distinguish himself from a Milanese."-Gabrielle Euvino

"For some reason Sicilians think that the Mafia makes them a separate culture from the rest of Italy. They must not know about the Calabrese 'Ndrangheta, the Sacra Corona Unita in Puglia, and the Camorra in Naples (which, incidentally, is older than the Sicilian Mafia)."

"Yeah, Sicilians have their own language. So do Neapolitans, Venetians, and almost every other kind of Italian."
