Partly the negative outlook was promoted by the church whose influence has waned; a process accelerated as Spain modernized post-Franco. Perhaps in the long run, more Spanish will acknowledge their shared heritage and distant ancestry. Consider also that Morocco is catching up developmentally...there's not much to distinguish say Casablanca from Valencia nowadays, for example.
