Title and contents are wrong
The article is creating confussion with peruvians who have dual nationality (Peruvian/Spanish). The title is more apropriate for that special condition of citizenship, and not to refer the descent.
But even if we use "Spanish Peruvian" in the sense given by this article, we are wrong too. Because descent of spanish should be referred only to people whose father/grandfahter or mother/grandmother is from spain. If not, almost the entire population of Peru should be considered "Spanish/Peruvian", because almost everything -in some way- is descent of spanish. For example, Vargas Llosa´s family have five generations in Peru, so it's absurd to say that he is "Spanish Peruvian". If we use the logic of this article, citizens of US should be considered Britains...absurd! --22.214.171.124 (talk) 17:27, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
Alan garcia is a mestizo maybe he has more white blood but he has too indian blood. alan garcia is white you idiot.
Peruvians of Spanish descent
It is true that when you say "white" in Peru, the first thing you think is a blond with blue eyes. Few northern whites kind in Peru. But we must bear in mind that the vast majority of Peruvians of European descent are descendants of Spaniards.
To get a better idea, I recommend you see on cable, Antena 3, TVE and Canal Vasco. It is true that the vast majority of Spaniards are like Alejandro Sanz and Lola Flores, Spanish but there are similar traits to the mestizos and / or Amerindian Peruvian, but they are only similar because they are North Africans, and Sephardic features. Spanish is an average 70% European, 20% Jewish, 10% Arab. Http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/spanish/science/newsid_7804000/7804668.stm
Well, besides the pure descendants of Spanish, there is also a pure or Creole (3 / 4 Spanish - 1 / 4 Amerindian). Or pure Creole is: 52.5% European, 25% Amerindian, 15% Jewish, 7.5% Arabic. Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castizo
Peruvians of Spanish descent (pure and typical): Carlos Alvarez, Jorge Benavides, Vladimiro Montesinos, Alan García, Lelo Costa, Beto Ortiz, Juan Francisco Escobar, Miguelito Barraza Andres Hurtado "Chibolín" Chemo del Solar, Claudio Pizarro, Paola Ruiz, Kike Suero, Oscar Gayoso, Ricky Tosso, Mariel Ocampo, Alberto Andrade, Juvenal Silva, Alberto Andrade, Luis Alva Castro, Luis Carranza, Hernando de Soto, Mario Vargas Llosa, Javier Silva Ruete, Luis Castaneda, Alamo Perez Luna, Nicolás Lúcar, Gonzalo Nunez, Raul Vargas, Juan Reynoso, Roberto Martinez, Carlos Cacho, Kina Malpartida, Carlos Alcántara, Javier Carmona, Susy Diaz, etc.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_Peruvian
Taking into account that according to the Census Bureau in July 2008, the Peruvian population is 29'180900 million, and that the Peruvian descent (pure and typical) of Spaniards are 9'400000 million, in conclusion, for every 100 Peruvians , 32 are Hispanic descent. That is, the Spanish-Peruvians are 32% of the total population of Peru. It is easy to check. Going out into the streets of any city in Peru. Especially in the northern jungle, mountainous north, central highlands, northern coast, coast of Ancash, north Chico, City of Lima, boy south coast of Ica.
Mr. Aramburu Martha Chavez a creole? Please.. Martha Chavez has clear indigenous features; she does not look white; the fact that having european foreing surnames, it does not make her european. She is indian. Please make a correction of it. Here is Martha Chavez Cossio photo I delete any mention to Martha Chavez and Ernesto Pimentel "Chola Chabuca" because they do not have Caucasian but rather Amerindian phenotype --126.96.36.199 (talk) 14:33, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

Most white people in Peru descends from Spaniards, followed by other groups like Italians (second most common), German, British, French and Polish. Some white Peruvians have tended to bring ideas of equality to Peru and help the native Peruvians and other native advocates in their struggle for cultural rights, human rights, cultural equality (i.e. teaching Quechua in classes), and ethnic identity pride, in the Peruvian society, 'where mestizos and whites are dominant groups'.. FALSE THE DOMINANT GROUPS OF PERU ARE MESTIZOS (47%) AND INCAS, QUECHUAS AND OTHER INDIAS OF PERU (32%), WHITES ARE 18% AND LESS THAN 1% ARE BLACKS OR ASIANS, SEE THIS VALID REFERENCE: http://internacional.universia.net/latinoamerica/datos-paises/peru/poblacion.htm — Preceding unsigned comment added by Halias 23 (talk • contribs) 00:00, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
