    …is that really true? In America, there is a stigma towards Italians as Mafioso and their Women as Privileged Mafia Wives enjoying the spoils of criminal enterprise. Many prominent Americans are Italian, but Whites in America tend to acknowledge their ethnicity up front if it is traditional or beneficial. If it relates them to “ETHNIC AMERICA” they tend generally not to use it publicly. The consequences of Ethnic Identification among Whites can be severe and oppressive. For that reason, many Italian Women today go as “WHITE” which associates them within majority culture rather than ethnic culture…”ETHNIC”meaning not White
