Dark Italian

I ran across an interesting account of a non-paternity event from the point of view of the child. David Paladino was the son of an Italian-American girl who was having simultaneous affairs with an Italian-American boy and an African-American boy. When she got pregnant, she married the Italian-American and Paladino grew up as a ‘dark Italian’. As you might guess, the African-American was his actual biological father. Here’s a link to an interview with him:

 There was also a program on This American Life devoted to his story. You can find it at:
