Maija Di Giorgio presses the fact that she is half black and half Italian! Obviously her mother is/was Black and her father was/is Italian! She is attempting to make a career in Comedy based on this fact.
I am full blooded Sicilian (Mother Bucallo – Father Addotta) and I must admit that it never occurred to me to trade in this currency. Nor the fact that I had children or any other thing, but, being entertaining to an audience.
Miss Di Giorgio seems to think that making racist comments about White People is acceptable. I do not! I could avoid this topic because, as a Sicilian, I am not a member of the White Race, whatever that is. Evidently Miss Di Giorgio hasn’t had any negative experiences with White People, but has decided to use this as a hook to bring her to national prominence. So much for her intelligence!
Miss Di Giorgio has stated, “I don’t trust White People! If I see a restaurant with no black people or Italian people in it I won’t eat there because the food couldn’t be good! I don’t date White Men! White people are the problem with the US!” And she goes on and on.
However, she does not define what she means when she refers to White People! Are they Flemish, Norwegians, Swedish, German, Swiss, Irish, Scottish, English, Russian, Canadian, Polish, Bulgarian, Hungarian? i’m confused!
Or maybe she simplifies her position by referring to all people with White Skin. I have White Skin because I stay out of the sun. If I went out in the sun, for an hour every day, I would be and have been darker that some so called Black People! Or is she, simply, depending on the ignorance of her audience and hoping they don’t ask any of these, inconvenient, questions?
In the end, can I blame Maija Di Giorgio? Yes! However I feel that I also must blame her audience for allowing this sort of thing. If she would have said any one of her things about Blacks or Hispanics, the audiences would have revolted. But saying them about White People was allowed! All racism toward all people must be stamped out! We cannot service, as a nation, with these double standards!
