“The last time I checked Irish WERE white folks.”
way back in the day, Irish immigrants were considered subhuman scum and grossly discriminated against and I doubt if they would have been included as “white” people then. you can ask Mrs. Catnipman about that as she’s descended from these Irish “scum” and the Irish even to this day still have memories of that discrimination.
Same with Jews and Eyetalians then, so I should have added that Hillary kept Matza balls in her purse for the Jews and spaghetti for the Eyetalians.
I am Boston Irish,my husband’s parents were born in Ireland-———they had it tough in the early days.
The old Yankee WASPs didn’t think too much of the Thick Micks. :-)
