From this reading, in my own words and reasoning, the Italians were given these advantages over the other immigrants once they stepped foot onto this land. They didn’t have to work the low paying jobs or get denied citizenship just because they didn’t fit the part of the white American. The Italians were given it easy to live and function somewhat well in this new world. They had the advantage of the federal government. Touching back on Gugliemo’s race/color distinction, this can relate to current social issues going on. Many actions that are taken on them, can stem from simply just the color of their skin. People today create their own assumptions and thoughts based on what they have been fed by the racial structure in place in many institutions. The color of someone’s skin can be a big influencer in decisions that are made against him. There are many current social issues happening where the key factor that puts them in an advantage or a disadvantage is the color of their skin, not the problem they are facing. This is a huge issue that unfortunately is a building block of the United States and seems to be inevitable.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
