    Why would a Greek have an Italian name? Unless they’re the same thing in the mind of a racist.

    • Jess says:

      he’s greek american….whoa stop seeing things that aren’t there

    • George says:

      Or maybe his parents liked the Italian name? Greece and Italy aren’t the same thing, but they’re pretty close geographically. Now that your question has been answered, you may return to your safe space and let the adults converse. Thanks.
