Yowsuh massa
27 June 2013 | by mostlyranceSee all my reviews

Run of the mill parade of Italian American stereotypes.

Why is it that the only portrayal of Italian Americans is as mobbed up ignoramuses?

Italian women portrayed as cheap putanas or drug addicts.

And extra credit for a low class outer borough accent.

As if you have to speak like a moron to be Italian. Fuggedaboudid? You wouldn't be idiotic enough to ask a black person to say "yowsuh massa", so why the double standard?

The most infuriating part, is that if you complain about this injustice, you're characterized as being a front for the mob. Nice.

If I'm wrong (I'm not), please let me know of a positive portrayal.
