I just wish more people looked up the history of irish people being slaves and involved in a slave trade. It happened. Its ironic because the basketball team is the Celtics and a lot of people in new England are Irish descendants, yet they're not aware their people may have been slaves
You are completely clouding the issue. There is no denying the historical reality of legitimate oppression and mistreatment of the Irish. It is even reasonable to posit that the indentured servitude under which the Irish suffered was, indeed, a form of slavery.
It is, however, not reasonable to equate it with the system of African chattel slavery which officially deemed black people from Africa as non-humans and used the free labor of these people to build the countryís economy. The legacy of the racism involved in chattel slavery and itís aftermath is still felt in the US today.
