Wandering Dago sounds like an  awesome Spaghetti Western.

I wonder if in another 50 or so years people will stop giving others the power to offend them with words my great grand parents used? What am I saying. It'll never happen.

You know why time goes so quickly in Saratoga?  Because every time you turn the corner, you see another dago.

Cut 'em some slack, if they had to come up with a censor for every insulting racial term, they wouldn't have time for anything else.

I say let the invisible hand of the free market sort this out.  If people refuse to eat at the truck because of the name job done.

"Racism against blacks is verboten but racism against Italians is acceptable? What a great farking site site you f*ckers have here."

The question being, is the word "dago" ever in any way been as offensive as the "N-Word".
I've been around Italian families and heard the word on and off, nothing said.
Mention the N-word and the mommas get upset and the poppas look at you with that look.

As an Italian from Italy, I had to look up the term to understand the big problem. Anyway, the heading is highly NSFW here, and there is clear grammatical error (caccati should be cagati)

Can they sell Aunt Jemima syrup in the breakfast trucks?

Do they toss everyone out who wears a Redskins jersey?

The filter pawn would be interesting.

There's an Italian place nearby that serves wop salads.

I've never heard the term Dago before. I guess because there aren't a lot of Italians in Oklahoma. If it's that offensive, they should have said something 6 months ago. How ridiculous.

I once mentioned at work, that I was looking forward to having a Guinea grinder.
Apparently that is an offensive name too.

Can you imagine the pressure Quakers are under to learn ethnic slurs when they hit high school just to read some of the finest literature.

Italian is not a race. It's a culture, ethnicity, and/or nation of origin. But not a race.
 
2013-07-21 12:50:34 PM
I haven't heard the term dago used in 20 years, even then I never knew any Italian who actually found it offensive. Kind of like honkey or cracker, us white folk find them more humorous than offensive.

Now, what noise does an Italian food truck make when it gets a flat tire?

Dago wop, wop, wop...

It is still a derogatory slur on the same level as the n-word.

It was highly-offensive...maybe 100 years ago.

Well 100 years ago Italians were being lynched more than blacks.

The term originated from Italian immigrants who worked as laborers and asked to be paid "as the day goes" which became "dago", Loguidice said. "That's how we make our money, as the day goes. ....And since we wander to different cities during the day, we thought the name was perfect."


Makes sense to me!!

They had to kick out the food truck; they herded the race-goers into endless Hotel Miramars and Bellvueses and Bontinentales with their modern international luxury roomettes and Watney's Red Barrel and swimming pools full of fat German businessmen pretending they're acrobats forming pyramids and frightening the children and barging into queues and if you're not at your table spot on seven you miss the bowl of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup, the first item on the menu of International Cuisine, and every Thursday night the hotel has a bloody cabaret in the bar, featuring a tiny emaciated dago with nine-inch hips and some bloated fat tart with her hair brylcreemed down and a big arse presenting Flamenco for Foreigners.
