This is not in anyway meant to be a put down of any race, but something that causes me to think whether ethnicity and personality are in any way related. I've had to work with a person and had some issues with them. I've tried to be polite and considerate, but sometimes this person responds to my remarks either with sarcasm or snarkiness in public, even if I'm trying to be helpful. This not only happens with me, but with other people also. If she's called up on it, she doesn't really apologize to anyone, but claims it's a result of "my Italian temper". Is this true? Are people of Italian descent more emotional or is she just having a problem with people interaction and blaming it on her ethnicity?
