What do they say about dark-skinned Italians?

I don't know if this is the right section for this question, but it's from a movie so I'll ask it here.

In Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing, Spike Lee's character is pointing out that a bunch of the Italians favorite people are black. He goes on to say that deep down the Italian wants to be black. He finishes by saying "You know what they say about dark skinned I-talians."

What is he referring to?

Seriously, anyone can say anything about any made-up group of people. The majorty of 'what they say' sayings refer to sexual ability or hot-temperedness or fondness for alcohol.

They say that southern Italians are descended from Africans. Or, as it was famously put in True Romance, "Sicilians are spawned from niggers." It's widely known by actual historians and anthropologists to be complete B.S. Tamerlane explained it very well in an earlier thread.

Ah, thank you very much. I had heard of the myth before, but I thought Spike Lee was referring to something else. Thanks all
