Historical Slavery
The first slaves imported into the American colonies were 100 Irish (white) children. They arrived in 1619, four months before the first shipment of black slaves. They were bought in Ireland where the law held that it was, “no more sin to kill an Irishman than a dog or any other brute”.
King James II, followed by Charles I and Oliver Cromwell sold over 500,000 Irish Catholics into slavery through the 1600’s. They went to plantations in the West Indies islands of Antigua, Montserrat, Jamaica, Barbados as well as to Virginia and New England. Irish slaves were less expensive than Africans, and the journey, shorter.
If it comes to socialist reparations, the Irish need to be included in the pay-out.  But that doesn’t fit the narrative, does it?

  1. The Irish business was worse than shameful. Unlike yesterday's celebration in DC. Well done, Mr. President.

  2. The Irish? Phwat about the Oirish?

    Come on, LL. You know there are only two groups that have truly suffered. American blacks obviously have suffered more than anyone else in history. Except. Except for a powerless, impoverished, eternally downtrodden group whose suffering exceeds what any other group in human history has suffered, or ever will suffer. This suffering is so profound that even scholarly inquiry into the details is not only a Hate Crime, but a literal crime in multiple EU jurisdictions, should the findings not fit the official narrative. And our homegrown idiots are trying to make it a similar crime in these US.

    So compared to THAT, what about the so-called persecution of a few white, Catholic children? They were just larval proto-oppressors.

  3. SSgt Richard Dalton, once my team chief, spoke up in every race relations class we had to take, asking about the Black Irish.
    No good answers.
    He didn't get a shaving waiver, either.

  4. To add to the "and so forth", my sister-in-law who is a friend of LSP, and how I ended up here, just let us know that he is down for the count. Please offer prayers for him; it is serious but not life threatening.
