Makes us all look bad

So Monday night on E!’s The Fashion Police, Giuliana Rancic had this to say about Zendaya’s hair. And while Giuliana has since made a public apology for her remarks, I continue to shake my head over the fact that she made such remarks in the first place. Because like me, Giuliana is italian-american. And there’s this, oh god it pains me to say it, but there’s a contingency of italian-Americans who are prejudiced against people of color. And for Giuliana to go on national TV and make a racist remark, as a famous italian-american, she’s sort of giving the idea that it’s OK for the rest of the italian-Americans to be prejudiced against people of color. And it’s not OK, it’s never OK, not for Giuliana Rancic on national TV, not for me on 18th avenue, not for Nicholas Minucci in Queens, not for any italian-american.
