I don’t know if this is the right section for this question, but it’s from a movie so I’ll ask it here.
In Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing, Spike Lee’s character is pointing out that a bunch of the Italians favorite people are black. He goes on to say that deep down the Italian wants to be black. He finishes by saying “You know what they say about dark skinned I-talians.”
What is he referring to?
