Were the Irish worse off (or more) than African slaves?

“It almost becomes a race to the bottom of who suffered more,” Mr. Reilly said, adding that the memes are “an effort to claim a certain ancestry of suffering in order to claim a certain political position.”

Well, something the article failed to mention was that Irish were probably not beaten with bull-whips 😆   Well, they weren’t as much as African Americans, I’m guessing maybe 90 percent less.

Getting beaten with bull-whips is a serious matter.  In fact, @Robert Lindsay on here even commented he wouldn’t dish that out to serial killers.

Anyway. this whole crybaby stuff as noted in my quote above – is just more identity politics in action – more groups trying to get victimization status.  (mocking crying face 😆 )
