Some of my ancestors were so busy in Ireland oppressing the Catholics that they had no time for you guys.

heh.  After I learned that the English referred to the Irish as "White N------s", I got a whole lot more sympathy for them.

Of course, then a lot of the Irish came over here and got plantations and bought slaves, which is kind of ironic.  Power corrupts.


Actually, the Irish who came over here and bought plantations/slaves were mostly from the Protestant ruling class in Ireland (aka the Scot/English imports who had been oppressing the Catholics for years).  When all the poor Catholics immigrated in the late 1840s, they settled mostly in the urban areas of the Northeast and Midwest.

Do you think white women, should be included in this? in the midwest they've done alot to show that they have repented, towards Black Males, anyway.

 >:(  Yeah, all they have to do is apologize to the Black men. 

Hmm. It seems like they've gone way beyond a mere apology. But your right, something needs to done to the sistas. But most sistas i know dont pay to much attention to what white women  say,anyway. But i guess it couldn't hurt. By the way lets keep this only needing to give an apology under wraps, at least until a few more of us get through law school ;) you know we cant work as a 1L.

Yup, this is true...eh, kills the irony a bit, huh?  Those Protestants were just oppressive people, I guess. ;)

In the early history of this country and in Ireland, yes the Catholics were oppressed, savagely so.  I'm not saying that Irish Catholics have not contributed to racial bigotry in this country, quite to the contrary.  I was just making a separate point.

Judging from the emoticon, it appears you would have been angry with that.
