Maybe you should study American history vis-a-vis the Irish before pontificating. I'll help you out a little. Check out a book titled "How the Irish became White." My paternal and maternal grandparents emigrated to America from Ireland at the end of the 19th century. They were not "white," they were "Irish" (As in "No Irish Need Apply"). My father and mother grew up in the 1930s and 40`s, and they were "white." What changed during those years? Irony is often lost on those who see it from a vantage point of ignorance. Your ignorance is what makes my illustration of irony horrible. Your ignorance is what makes me disgusting. How ironic..

^^ Not true, yankee. According to the WHO, Ireland ranks number 2 in the world in alcohol consumption per capita (just behind Luxembourg). The U.S. comes in at number 40, if you're interested. Full article here
