Italians are Assumed to be Lazy , Criminal and oversexed
Moving to the ultra conservative southeast US was a very upsetting experience. All kinds of horrible assumptions were made about me to the point of putting me in danger .I had no idea how bad it could get .
Assumptions that I was dangerous, criminal , violent , over sexed .It was like living in a weird carnival , with distorted mirrors everywhere.
Extreme bias and hatred was covered with sugary sweet pleasantries until they tried to entrap me .
Because it was 'faith based' oragnisations were involved , this shattered my faith . I am a Northerner, Non Baptist , and an Italian woman so I was subjected to extremely humiliating and cruel treatment .
