    He is the most Assyrian looking, non-Assyrian celebrity out there. Half of Assyrian men you’d meet will look like this man. Very strange, considering the distance from Italy to Northern Iraq. Interesting too, nonetheless…

        ^Typical Southern European scum with a “Hitler complex” and a classic inferiority complex.

        If somebody said that Tucci looked “very Germanic” you’d probably be going “yes, he does huh!”, as the pathetic self-hater that you are. You’re the wannabe clown who thinks Italians are related to Swedes or some crap like that. Lmao at your projection.

        Assyrians do overlap with their neighbors, genius. But then, Southern Europeans, unfortunately for you grease-ball, would have more in common with Middle Easterners.

        Naw, is that condescending to you? Am I “degrading” you because I said your race is more like North Africans and Middle Easterners, rather than Germanic peoples? Poor you. Hitler slave.

        FYI, three photos of people (who are probably not even Assyrian, besides the guy with McCain, who is darker than average) doesn’t prove your “facts”. You obviously haven’t met Assyrian, as the secluded lonely man that you are. Try again.

          How many accounts do you have? I have nothing against Assyrians, I even added Fares Fares who’s Assyrian. Assyrians are not Europeans and you have to deal with it. A group of Assyrians would fit better in South Asia than anywhere in Europe. Ironically Hitler’s main ally was Italy..

          What did you smoke? Southern europeans don´t have inferiority complex at all…in fact, Southern Europeans have much better self steem than northern ones, with some exceptions. Italians, Greek, Spaniards, all have examples of very beautiful people, and from that region comes the most galant men, and considered by women the best lovers. Germans indeed had inferiority complex since Roman times…Psichology says today that superiority delusions like what Hitler and nazis had is a reaction from the subject against his inferiority complex.

            You are so incredibly high-strung and easily offended, searching out years’-old comments so you can be offended all over again anew. It’s literally all you do, here.

            Talk about an inferiority complex…
