Italians have the 7th highest GDP in the world and the 4th highest in Europe, almost exactly the same as the UK. The average Italian has an IQ of 102, the highest in Europe, tied with Germany, Austria and the Netherlands, making it higher than the UK, France, Sweden, China, THE USA, etc. Most Italian-Americans come from Sicily. Most Italians DO NOT consider Sicilians Italian. Sicilians are Italians heavily mixed with Arabs. Sicily was also once a prison island similar to Alcatraz and when Italy stopped financing them the prisoners were released and built communities there. When you ask people from Northern/Central Italy if Sicilians are Italian they will definitely say no. However Sicilians mistakenly call themselves Italians so that they can sound higher up the social scale, which is bad for real Italians as all modern day stereotypes stem from Sicilians. Historically, almost every mobster has come from Sicily as organized crime was common there. Al Capone, the Gotti's, the Jersey Shore etc. are all Sicilian. Northern/Central Italians are the same skin color as Germans but have darker hair and are usually hairier, like the French. Milan (Northern Italy) is one of the most powerful and wealthiest cities in the world and is the fashion capital of the world along with NYC. If you ever go to Northern Italy you will also notice that many of them are very nice/accepting and soft spoken.
American: You have family in the mafia?

Sicilian: Oh yea, you know us Italians.

Italian: Where in Italy are you from?

Sicilian: Sicily.

Italian: EXACTLY.

An incredibly cultured people who work hard and are not considered white by white people and yet not considered minorities to the WASP-ass government.
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.
Italian power! Minorities unite!
