What do you think about Italian people...

...living in the USA? I often read xenophobe comments about minorities and I wonder if that will be a problem for my oldest daughter (she's born in Italy from Italian mom) when she will be older.

  • MOST people have no problems with people living LEGALLY in the U.S. I think your just trying to cause issues because of comments about illegals and having to press 1 English. Nobody cares about your Italian daughter living in the US. If she acts right, pays taxes, supports herself why would it be an issue? I don't know anyone that is "Italian" of course I don't go around asking people where they are from.

  • I think my dad was 50% Italian... So what! I see people as people as people - regardless of where they were born or HOW/WHEN/WHY they come here...

  • Hopefully your daughter won't experience any racism in this country but don't be fooled by these responses it does exist. Some where here in America there is some fool and his family that has a grudge against Italians because of something he heard from his grandpa and he can't stand Italians....hopefully your daughter doesn't run into that jerk! LOL, Good luck!
