The Politics of Color in Greece
In the United States between 1880 and 1920, over 22 million immigrants entered the country, of which were 450,000 Greeks.
During that period, roughly 14.7% of the American population was foreign-born, the highest in the nation’s history.
They came into a country that experienced deep convulsions about these new aliens, who looked, smelled, prayed, ate and socialized differently than previous northern, mostly Protestant European immigrants.
Greeks faced hostility wherever they went; beatings, intimidation, social exclusion and even death.
