While organized crime from Italy is Hollywood legend, I don't think portraying this world is defacto racism. Russian and Irish criminal groups, Triads, the Yakuza, Laotian gangs, Vietnamese gangs, and many others abound in America. How would you write a screenplay or develop a series without opening yourself to charges of racism?
