This all makes it sound like the Irish bit is above racism, a privileged
"white person" class that's never had any negative discrimination.
Back in the golden days of the British Empire there were academic
discussions on how the Irish constituted a different sub-species of
lesser humanity. Racism hasn't always been about skin colour, and still
Irish might have it somewhat easier today (but prejudices remain), but
racism of all kinds, including anti-"white" (what the fuck is "White"?
What the fuck is "Black"?), is just more of the same stupidity.
Newsflash; the genetic diversity within any given "racial" population
you choose is *far* greater than the miniscule genetic differences that
define the characteristics we call "race". There is no such thing as
"race" except that which we create in our monkey heads.
