No Irish Need Apply by Foedus-Stamps No Irish Need Apply by Foedus-Stamps
Many people in America seem to forget that WHITE people were also severely oppressed in the United States, nearly as ill as the Blacks at times.

Immigrants came to New York in the 1800s from many different places and for many different reasons. English, French, and Germans fled poverty and looked for opportunity. But mostly they came from Ireland and for the simplest of reasons: they were starving to death. The potato crop was failing, and English masters were taxing away their money. America seemed their only hope.

After 30 days in the filthy holds of converted freighters, Irish families emerged onto the New York waterfront. Many were half-dead. Almost all were flat broke.

Packed into crowded tenements, they struggled to survive. Men labored on docks and construction sites. Girls and women worked as servants in rich people's homes. Boys hawked newspapers. Some joined street gangs to protect themselves against native gangs and the police.

Slowly -- despite prejudice against them -- they made their way up the ladder. Some became craftsmen. Others joined the police. The most successful became politicians and helped build Tammany Hall, the nation's first political machine. As a machine, Tammany asked for immigrants' votes and paid them back with city jobs and services.


But psht, the only thing that people nowadays want you to see and hear is "WE HAS TO RESPEKT DA BLAKZ". No thank you, 80% of the people that live in my neighborhood are black, and nearly 100% of them are rude, disgusting, thieves, liars, thugs, and abusive jack offs that are constantly looking for another way to complain about how they are being oppressed.

Just think, for one moment, I KNOW IT'S HARD TO COMPREHEND, but there are other people who were treated like shit, you aren't, and will NEVER, get my sympathy simply because of the color of your skin, especially if you haven't gone through it.

Yeah, except, y'know, the Irish turned their attention and racism to other nonwhites, so they literally took out their oppression onto other people who had less power, which included- not surprisingly- black people just so they could have some of that "white supremacy" for themselves. 

And who says this is only about oppression of black people? Racial inequality is mostly about how white people built a system that still benefits them to this day, where the incarceration rate for black people and Latino people are at a much higher rate than white people for the same damn crimes- with many nonwhite prisoners innocent of the crime while white people get away with a slap on the wrist at the most- where up to 76% of college scholarships go to white people (meaning that only a small percentage of scholarships are actually race-based) and let's not forget that whites take up a majority of this country's wealth mostly through generational inheritance (so no, whites do not work hard for the money, sorry honey), and the stereotype that African Americans are uneducated lazy people when statistics and personal accounts show that they get passed up for jobs and it gets given to white applicants; hell, their resumes don't even get looked at if their name sounds "too ghetto" or hard to pronounce.

And boy, what a shitty comparison of willful immigration and working for actual wages to actual kidnapping and raping of citizens of many African countries (that's right, Africa isn't a country, it's a continent, for those of you who don't know) who got shipped to another country (many of them dying and their corpses tossed overseas) and forced to work under white people with no compensation and no freedom/human citizenship. Boy, am I glad that the education system we have established is working wonders to teach true history of America's past. I'm so glad African Americans can stop "shoving black history down your throats" and that white people are good after all! I guess I don't have to worry about white people fetishizing my body and stereotyping me as a horny animal so much that they can literally walk up to me and demand sexual favors and use me as a sport, as with the case of Beyonce having her ass slapped on onstage by a bunch of white creeps.

In all seriousness, though, you and all of these white supremacist apologists are fucking pathetic. But at least you served one good thing to this world: you guys gave me enough material to laugh at and prove how uneducated all these white people with "edumacations" and "book smarts" really are when it comes to society.

It's kinda funny imagining your extremely condescending, ignorant post coming from that ridiculous avatar of yours. Come back here with a decent avatar and some solid facts.

Aaaah, I see my old post has enough of a kick to leave the cretins wounded. Well, I guess I can entertain you anti-black fools some more, so...



But I do find it funny that white people- like the person who created this godawful, inaccurate stamp- aren't asked to give "accurate" proof for their bigotry and that you tell me my icon is ridiculous even though a) it has nothing to do with this anti-black racism stinking up deviantart and b) no one even knows what that shit in yours is. 
Still, links are provided, your little reply made me laugh, so pick your poison from the array of sources and have a good night~!

1. I am not anti-black. Based on viewing your posts, however, I am anti-YOU.
2. This stamp has nothing to do with your ranting. You merely mentioned the Irish, then moved on to your very                incorrect and warped perception of whites in America.
3. I found you avatar hilarious because of the stark contrast between your extreme anti-white philosophical                      viewpoint and the Disney character your avatar depicts. Plus, it looks stoopid. [The grammatical error                    was intentional.]
4. You didn't produce accurate proof, either. Google doesn't make the raving Narcissist you are special.

The following is meant to piss the bigoted supremacist in you off.

Again, I'd like to point out that my viewpoint on blacks is that they're no different then whites, but when some asshole like you comes around, thinking they can cause someone shame towards their own race because of a google search, you're dead wrong. If you're tired of white perception being against blacks, why don't you try to change it through positive means, instead of trying to instill shame upon said white person(s)? You're a terrible example of a human being, and have probably set the African-American community back a bit due to your hateful and bigoted philosophy.

Thank you.

 

I'm Chinese. I just sort of looked unimpressed every time someone seriously says, "It's because I'm black, isn't it?" Oh, and that constant shoving of black history down our throats. I'd probably appreciate it a lot more if it wasn't so stagnant and repetitive. Ah, the American school system.

 

Sure, we have to remember, we fucking enslaved an entire race. But you know what. Other peoples suffered just as much.

I've just used up my entire rant fury on the OP to rage about how stuid you are, so I'm just going to leave these for you and anyone else to see:

There are more, thousands and thousands of research and personal accounts to show why black people wonder if it's racism, because it's most likely is.
So fuck you.

I'm very stuid. Yes, I'm very stuid.

 

Don't act like I don't know anything about our history; do not underestimate me.

 

Your point, also, is lost in clashing with mine. Where I come from, our education is ruined by people who make their races look bad. I'm so tired of ghetto kids -- Asian, black, white, Hispanic, you name it -- coming in, disrupting us so badly each day is nothing short of unproductive. I'm so tired of people complaining so genuinely that theirs is such an awful plight because they're black -- and, that is all I have heard. Of course it is awful, but that's no excuse. And you know what? -- most of them are black or Hispanic. It helps that white people are rare where I come from, and that we Asians here are largely disciplined to huge measures because our parents are immigrants. Those ghettos, going around, use their racial histories to make asses of themselves. Excuses to instigate. Some of my closest friends are black and Hispanic -- we're the melting pot, so no surprise there -- and they despise those ghettos because they make their races look bad. At ghetto schools, classes are full of nothing but civil rights lessons, so one can imagine where the mentality came from. "Is it because I'm black?" No, it's because you're fucking delusional.

 

In class, all I have heard are these: The Holocaust and our history of slavery. And there lie the flaws in our education system -- stagnation. I would like to hear more about how the Irish worked on one side and the Chinese on the other to build the Transcontinental Railroad. I would like to hear more about Soviet war crimes. We steeple into new topics -- look, ma, there're MORE bad things happening in the world! -- and then go straight back to the age-old studies of slavery and the Holocaust. Never have I heard mention of Soviet war crimes in class. I actually cried out in shock when I heard the word "Nanking," because I'd never have expected them to mention it. When they mentioned the death march in the Philippines. Mentioning, mentioning, mentioning, and then...oh, shit, back to Frederick Douglass!

 

Of course there is racism today -- how could I not know? I am a Chinese female, for God's sake. My mother speaks horrible English, my brother told a guy to suck his dick when he told us to go back to China, and I coil to hold the appearance of the Chinese in America when I step outside diverse territory. It is advised that I wear a skirt instead of pants to interviews. When people see me, they don't see an American -- they see an Asian. I am not white, I am colored.

 

But it's not just black people. It's also Asians. Hispanics. Jews. Women...and it just keeps on petering. Trayvon Martin? -- how about Danny Chen? No, never heard of him? -- my point is made.

 

(I must say, though, I was very proud when my city actively protested Zimmerman's verdict: We are so diverse a part of America, made for change, and this -- this showed.)

 

I mean, kudos to America for actually trying, though. There are countries that have just lost themselves so much in their denial...

 

But there is more to that. The American people deserve better.

 

But, point in case -- you attacked based on miscommunication. Perhaps this shall translate a little better.

 

Tl;dr: Fuck youuuu~ Fuck you very, very muu-uuuch~

 

So, you like Hetalia?
