I'm indian-ethnically but American & not used to straight up in your face racism. I was making out with this Italian guy & he made a racist comment against blacks. Have black people who've been around Italians felt racism against them or is it just this asshole? We live on a caribbean island.

I'm italian...and most Italian Americans especially the older generation full on Italians are extremely racist and refer to them as mullangans. They don't like polish or Irish people either. They are also racist against arabs even though alot of the south is mixed with arab blood.

Italians are said to be extremely racist, I am talking about the ones from Italy. They have one of the largest neo nazi and facist community in Europe. Nationalism is very high there and if you watch football (soccer)you will see that there are openly racist against black players. However, I've been to Italy so many times and I've never ever had any problems, for real 0 problem. I've met some really nice people actually but Black Italians keep saying they're extremely racist but are nice to tourists for some obvious reasons...

being racist has nothing to do with who you are ... its how you are raised and the contact and experiences you have with other races of people.

Yeah Italians are racist against Africans, but they just do that because they are mad at Africans for mixing with them, making white people hate Italians for being non-whites.

Yeah Italians are very racist both Italians & ones in Italy.

I don't think Italians are as racist as us Poles are though.

Growing up in an Italian American neighborhood I have seen it a lot. LOL

In an area around here there was a school that was half Black & half Italian.
The Italians would beat up the Blacks everyday. An Italian threw a Black kid out the school window.
So they put the Italians in a new school to protect the Blacks getting beat up by the Italians. LOL

In my neighborhood the Italians commonly say racist things against Blacks.

Often when a Black person comes into our neighborhood the Italians confront them with stares, verbal abuse or even attack them.
(Not always racist though)
Sometimes they will look for another reason to attack them like why are you here without saying racist things but other times they do. LOL

But, there are also a small group of Italians who really love Blacks more than other Whites do too.

I have met a couple of Italian girls who only dated Black men.
There are some Italians who really love Black men (More than other Whites usually do)

There are someof famous celebrities who are Italian & Black.

True & False. While it is certainly true racism has much to do with being raised that way or experiences.

Biology does play a role.

For example studies show racists have higher Oxytocin the love hormone.

So this isn't really shocking to why Italians would be racist.

Italians seem like typical High Oxytocin types. Italians are known for being very passionate & loving but also very hateful etc

It all fits with the High Oxytocin personality.

Italians believe everyone should stick with they're own race; Blacks with blacks, Italians with italians etc, they are also very jealous people and resent any type of competition.

But they love to compete as long as they're the winner.

I grew up in an Italian Neigborhood and yes the Italians were generally racist against blacks and against Puerto Ricans.

They allied themselves with the Irish. Got along marvelously.

I recently entered an Italian restaurant on third street in front of the Capitol area and the immediate hostility was so intense that I felt that I was about to be physically attacked.

Brought back all those feelings I felt when I had to walk though the Italian neighborhood to get myself back to the projects.

When I was a young man in the 60's I made love to Sophia Loren. She loved her some Marcus, of course I had all my teeth back then. Italian men hate us but Italian women love us.

I made love to La Mona Liza myself and I didn't have my teeth back then. I couldn't bite her but I gummed her.

many black guys think italians are the most racist white people out of them all. many of us black guys have known this about italians for years. its funny because, italian guys love coming onto black women. there are many italian women who have been with black guys. italian guys are really known to be racist toward black men. they won't make these comments alone or face to face. only when they are with their racist buddies or behind our backs. blacks knew this about italians for years.

I sure love Italian Food!!!

They are very family oriented; they rarely stray away from the family.

In a strange vicarious sort of way; I really "envy" them.

lol, the only time any black person has ever tried to punk me is when he had back up... most people are like that... Blacks probably just call Italians and Irish people racist, becuase they usually dont take any sh** or exhibit any Liberal White Guilt Pu55ieness
