Response to no_hypocrisy (Original post)

52. K&R and thanks. My grandparents came here from Sicily. Discrimination against Italians

was very real.

Dad changed his name from Salvatore Giovanni to Samuel John when he joined the Air Force in WWII, to avoid prejudice and because we were at war with Italy. (He was actually at Pearl Harbor when it was bombed.)

The Irish suffered similar prejudice as immigrants. Neither they not the Italians were considered "white" at one time. Now way too many people with Irish and Italian immigrant backgrounds turn the same prejudice against immigrants from other countries.
