           Ethnic Groups Beware Discrimination
                      Has Returned For All

                All ethnic groups must be aware of the present movement
            to divide and bring hate against each ethnic group. Those
            who spew discrimination have now focused again on Ital-
            ians whose next?
                Ever since the voyage Italians made from Italy to America
            all those of Italian Heritage have and continually have to fight
            the constant discrimination against them that continues today.
            It is even more hypocritical that in spite of all the contribu-
            tions made by Italians to make the American experience the
            success it is discrimination continues to rear its ugly head
            again with the same old words that degrade and demean all
            who are of Italian Heritage. However, for some reason it has
            been forgotten that the lands that are called “America” are
            named after an Italian, making “America” a beautiful Italian
            name and discriminating against Italians is like spitting on
            the name “America”.
                Regrettably after all of those contributions the constant
            discrimination continuously overshadows all the good Ital-
            ians made to America, then why are they constantly portrayed
            as members of organize crime? People forget that every
            ethnic group has good and bad, and with that in mind, why
            is it that only the Italians are considered the group of people
            associated with crime?
                Why in the twenty-first century does society continue to
            allow the same old slanderous discrimination against those of   Rep  Suozzi  receives  this  National  Award  which  is  presented  biennially  to  an  Italian

            those who look to divide are using the Italians to justify the
            attack on other ethnic groups, filling skewed knowledge and
