Italian culture has been a part of Hip-Hop for mutiple decades now just like latinos have been a part of it since the 80's. So to the older generation of Italians saying the newest generation are a disgrace becuase of what they wear and etc, they just dont get that Italians who dress and act a certain way is just the Americanization of all cultures meshing together. The Italian culture hasent died or will it ever, it's alive and well, it's just evolved and added on due to living in America the country that we discovered, and since Italians discovered this country we have every right to call the shots as what to wear or how to act,if you dont like it move! So next time you see an Italian wearing FUBU and Kangol, dont say were ripping off anothers culture, other cultures rip us off all the time,so we will wear whatever we like, and if we dont mind rappers putting Italian culture in their rhymes then I doubt they care what we wear. Now thats the reality check. Paisans rule!
Sometimes get a bad rep because of movies and shows where they are depicted as gangsters. Italian women are strong-willed, hard-working, and completey hot just like Irish and Black women. Usually have beautiful olive skin and dark hair. Italian men love their families and work hard and many are incredibly intelligent, despite what it shows in the movies. Leonardo DiVinci, an Italian man, was one of the smartest men in the world. Italians are also great artists. An Italian discovered America, an Italian named America, the Italians slave to make a better life while WASPs like Peter kick us in the face. And don't sit there rolling your eyes, whities, because I know you would support this if another minority wrote this, but simply because you think I'm Italian you blow this off. "I'll pretend to give a rats ass about what blacks and asians say because it's the cool thing to do, but I don't care about Italians." You're hypocrites. All minorities, Italians, blacks, hispanics, need to come together.
