65. My husband is off the plane from Calabria

And he agrees. But not about Tuscans and such!

He's actually an Italian Citizen and we have a home there - not a US Citizen at all.

If you tell a Calabrese Mountain person they are 'white' - they will rip your head off. White people are Germans, Norwegians, Brits, Northern Italians . . .

Calabrese have deep roots in Greece and all that it implies.

He doesn't put the Islands folks in the White Category either - their roots are different than the Calabrese and the Northerners.

By that same token - if your family has been in the USA two or three generations - you aren't Italian at all <--- according to the Gio.

I'm Italian (his wife by citizenship) and they are not - and he doesn't understand why they panty bunch because most Americans view Italians as white folks. :lmao:


Which once again pisses an actual Calabrese immigrant right off!



Disclaimer for any Italian Americans - It's not easy being me. Your grandmother lived this hell - especially if your grand daddy was Calabrese! (stubborn hard headed temperamental men)
