How can someone who has of an extremist next to his name and a link to a racist website attack skin heads in Ireland?
I'm a black chick and I have practically lived half of the last 3 years of my life in Dublin as my boyfriend is Irish. Seeing those images is kind of frightening as it seem a general trend with the world at the minute. However, its a huge shock that it is Dublin thats involved, I adore that city and the people are absolutely lush. I have never had anything romotely racists aimed at me, its more of an interest in my cultural background.
To the O.P what newspaper did this article appear in and when was it? Something just does not sit right with me about it.
Plus you have got to remember that the western world is progressing with its views toward ' ethnic minorities'. Looking at what going on it may no seem like it, but my grandparents moved to England in 1940s and attitudes towards them were disgusting. There are always going to be racists, always, look what happened to Etto ( the footballer) just a couple of days ago.
I don't appreciate the random rudeness, so have some neg rep. I'm sure the most sensible answer is that over many years, there's been movement back and forth(including, eg, the movement of the Irish to Glasgow)over many eras. My interpretation is that a great many of today's protestants in Northen Ireland are descended from a mass influx of Scots, the catholics being indegenous Irish, or at least Irish who were there longer.
