  •  Wonderful. Take a look at some of the Siciliani (5+ / 0-)

    on YouTube or wherever. Many look very dark with wavy hair, sort of a Middle-Eastern appearance, or North African.  Italy had many influences, so from way back it's foolish for Italians to talk about "pure" Italian as my mother's side of the family used to talk about. (There is a divide in Italy between the -traditionally- industrial north and the agrarian, dialect-rich south, and everybody knows it.)

    And I've run into this kind of story too. People being jackasses then telling you later that they've "learned from you" kind of thing. In some fashion, people know that racism is wrong and attempt to shed it. They think telling racist jokes, etc. is what they're supposed to do. (Or homophobic, sexist, etc.)
