This is the first I've heard of discrimination against the Black Irish.

Any time somebody uses words like "honky" or "cracker" I like to yell back "Hey! That is OUR word, and you got no right using it!"

Then, after an awkward silence, they ask "Can you pass the Ritz C-words?"

I lived in Cork for years.. There was never any racism there except they didn't care for black people that came in from Africa a month before they were due and popped out a kid. Once that law was changed they didn't seem to mind Africans at all. Fairly tolerant people frankly unless your English or call Ireland "part of the UK" like a dumbass yank. Maybe it's become a new thing though since the Celtic Tiger is dead and people are hurting for money. Immigrants would certainly be a target to cast blame at instead of their own incompetent government.

When I moved there trying to get farking ANYTHING done was a feat. Gas, water, electricity, all a royal biatch to get hooked up right. It takes 3 farking years to build a house there because of all the incompetence. That's not racism or discrimination if 100% of the people are affected by the morons that run their utility system. I had to live in a hotel for 3 months while a finished house I had just purchased was "plugged into the system."

They have a very serious credit system there as well and I had to have 3 banks and 2 previous landlords (we're talking 10+ years of documentation) to get a mortgage. Once that was done I needed similar stuff to get the rest of the crap hooked up. Moving overseas means your entire financial history is useless.

Oh wait till you come back to the States (if you ever come back). Your financial history in Ireland or wherever will also be utterly useless AND there is a high chance you will be regarded by US credit agencies as no more trustworthy than some deadbeat who recently declared personal bankruptcy.

US financial system doesn't take kindly to folks who "dissappear" for a few years and were working for foreign employers. Something I am learning now. Yay!!!

I have relatives who actually build long ships. For fun. I was born in California, so I do not understand the Norwegian mindset a lot of the time, but I can tell you that long ships are teh KEWL! I still wouldn't run around the woods with a battle axe while invoking Odin under his name "Valfar", Viking heritage (mom is straight outta Norway) or not. That sort of thing just doesn't seem too smart to me. You sure ain't getting me to drag a long ship to the next river, either. I'll be at the smoothie stand, thanks.

In fact it wasn't that bad coming back.. I came back 5 years later and still had a decent credit rating of around 700 even though I had been inactive for 5 years. One thing I did was maintain two US bank accounts including an Etrade bank/moneymarket/stock account so I was never really "inactive." I simply used my parents address since they don't want to do business with ex pats.

Russle Brand picked up some illegals at a Home Depot for a spot on his show. He asked them if they couldn't find work in Mexico. None of them were from Mexico, I don't recall where they were from since all those South of USA countries are the same to me.

I think the dudes at Stormfront would be very interested in your tales of racism. If you are white. Otherwise, they'll probably tell you to DIAF and call you some very nasty names.

People say to me 'Ruckus'. I say 'Huh, who said that?' They say 'How do I make it to White Heaven?' Well, start by askin' yourself 'How is my relationship with the white man?' Do you celebrate the white man's goodness every day? Do you stop and thank the white man for the food you eat and the clothes you wear? Huh? Well, if you don't, you goin' to Hell. Now, I want everybody who isn't white to turn to a white person and say 'Thank you'.

'Tis a really fun game! That really bad/not sure how I feel about it "feel sorry for Grendel" movie that I think was called "Beowulf and Grendel" had a scene with Grendel playing kuub with decapitated heads. Kinda like bowling, IMO. But like I mentioned previously, the Nordic mindset and entertainment methods aren't really my thing. For that, you would need my sister. I'll play the games, I've got the accoutrements, I've got the heritage, but most importantly, I'm a Cali girl and got the skateboard and the "OMG! whatevs dudes" attitude.

5 years. Should have kept a US account and credit card. Did not. Reason was it was hard to maintain wihtout a US address or someone monitoring the account(s) and feeding it (hard to fund from a foreign source - regular monetary transfers between foreign banks are expensive). So I settled with a foreign account for years. Also had foriegn employers. Only thing keeping me on the grid was reporting to Uncle Sam (AKA the IRS).

I heard this was a factor with new immigrants to the US as well. Lack of credit history will get you refused on credit cards and loans (which the former happened to me when I got back). Anyhow, just fixing up the history again with responsible paying of bills, and credit card statements.

Sorry about the "Omg whatevs dude" attitude, I hear they have a pill for that now.

Amazing how every culture manged to develop at least one game that could be played yet allowed you to always have a beer in one hand. Horseshoes, Bocce, Kuub, petanque and America's contribution; cornhole and ladder toss. I grew up in the Northeast and my Irish decent relegated me to horseshoes, as my Grandfather would say, "Throw them shoes well or I will send you over to play bocce with those weak armed WOPS!" (hey, this is still a tread about racism, right?)

Long ships are so seriously cool. The relatives I have that build 'em can do it without so much as a printed plan, which I understand is the "traditional method". That makes sense, because if something broke on your ship you'd have to be able to repair it on the fly. Or on the row. Whatever.

Hahahaha! I played horseshoes a couple times with some Southern type people (Okies!) and it actually took me a while to figure out what a "ringer" was and how to get one. I reverted to axe throwing contest method I use, took off my shoes, dug my big toe into the dirt when I figured where my "sweet spot" for throwing was and let 'er rip. I still didn't do too well, but at least I gave it a good go. I may have actually managed to blend with the Okies, too. Especially when I devastated the fried okra and sweet tea.

Since I am a minority and have been a victim of racism, I am NOT getting a kick out of these posts, etc.

When people say "racism" they commonly assume this means whites suppressing other races. Bull stuff, ALL races practice racism, but many are much more open about it than others. In south Texas where Hispanics are the majority, they routinely push whites out of jobs for which they are more qualified, demands special privileges and immunity from any laws they don't like---equal opportunity first on the list, immigration second.

Take race out of it and they fight over money, and if they are all so poor they have no money, they fight according to some physical characteristic: The Hutus who were short and stocky revolted and killed the Tutsis in Rwanda, who were tall and thin. The liberated slaves in Liberia quickly set up the equivalent of the old plantation system in their new land, and oppressed the natives every bit as badly as they themselves were oppressed when they were slaves.

Closer to home, Black Panthers with clubs showed up at many polling places to try to stop people from voting.

\\\ I didn't see any white people do that.
