Why won't the Blessed Messiah Obama send any aid??? His people infested Sicily centuries ago and banged all the white women, just like his daddy did.... the least he could do now is send a couple of IPods....
You are fool! Read your history,the American government gave Italians their "whiteness about sixty years ago because they wanted to boost the white population. Ever ask yourself why Italians were treated like garbage by anglo-whites? and in some cases still are. I realize why Itialians tend to be so racist, you guys are insecure about your whiteness.
