I think we're as much to blame for that racist nonsense as anyone else. I've known plenty of paesans who LIKE to watch that junk. To them, it's probably a step up from what we usually get -- which is not shown at all. At least they are acknowledging our existence. I still can't bring myself to watch it, and when merican friends of mine mention stuff like the Sopranos, I can't stop myself from saying, "I can't relate to that. No one in my family was a hair-trigger psychotic criminal." There's a middle ground between being a guido and being a wonder-bread, and we never see that.
