Awesome!

Does this mean white people will stop getting triggered by Black History Month?


Edit: Just saw your deflection techniques after another member responded to the same reply of yours.

Does celebrating Easter as a national holiday trigger witches?

I think the concept is pretty neat, the Irish have had a monstrous impact on western civilization, and most people probably are not aware of it beyond Irish whiskey, so why not take a moment to recognize a wonderful group.

Drinking in Ireland with locals was one of my better experiences here in europe, I have never encountered such a laid back group of people that were not stoned... until they are deep in their cups then it seems like fight night... but it was still fun.

Yes, agreed! Temple Bar District in Dublin is a great time, especially when you converse with the locals!

How involved do you want to get? A store bought corned beef or brisket from scratch?
One takes a week to make. The other a few hours.

1 brisket.
2 cups salt and enough water to cover. Refrigerate for five days. Change water for fresh no salt and soak for another day.
Rub with a combination of salt, Brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder and lots of black pepper.
Refrigerate for yet one more day.
Cook in the oven at 250 for six hours.
Meanwhile cook potatoes and cabbage in boiling water until just tender. Transfer to a roasting pan toss with olive oil salt and pepper and roast at 425 for about twenty minutes.

Or start with a store bought corned beef skip all the soaking then rub and cook for six hours . Do the potatoes and cabbage the same way. You may want to let the meat sit over night with the rub just to get it good and seasoned before roasting but you don't have to.
If you have a smoker you can do this in the smoker then steam the meat for an additional hour and slice it up for pastrami sandwiches. OMG so good. The smoking changes it from corned beef to pastrami.
I got this recipe online it's a copy cat from Kats deli. ( of when Harry met Sally fame , YES!YES!YES!)

My friend from high school had that sign hung in their kitchen. I always remember that saying.
They had another one that said .
"Come in, sit down, relax, converse.
Our house doesn't always look like this.
Sometimes it's even worse. "
I loved that.
My own mother had a sign too . It said
"God help those who get caught helping themselves."
Lol.

Found out i am 44 % Irish, and a whole lot of other stuff. The weirdest part was North Africa and North West Russia. My parents have some explaining to do lol.

Ancestry dot com is one hell of a trip.

My result was pretty unsurprising, English, Irish, German, Scandinavian. My wife, on the other hand was all over the place. Native American, Spain, England, Eastern Europe, North Africa, Asia, and a little bit of pretty much everywhere else. Needless to say our kids have got all the bases covered

Having read about this and giving this some thought the following can be stated:

In this country, there have been waves of people that have been hated and despised, and treated with contempt, since the founding of this country. In that aspect, laws were often passed to hold one group down giving favor and unequal treatment. The country has a past that is littered with such. Those before us, tried to commit a genocide against one group, enslaved another group, and often would hate any other groups that would come in.

And those in the past who have been unjustly treated, having their rights trampled on, often were able to seek and get redress for the harms of the past, or laws were passed to prevent such from occurring again. Save one group, where the sins and harms of the past still haunt them to this very day. And yet, the lessons are not learned and we have to put on a bandage for such.

The reason for, Black History month, is that was at the end of the Civil rights movement, where the country was trying to redress the issues from the Jim Crow laws and how the country had treated those of African descent, who had made an impact on the country, and were still treated as second class citizens by this nation, and to try to change the mindset of the population about the contributions by this one group.
The question is this appropriate for this country to celebrate a group that only went through a short time of discrimination? And what is the ramifications that will come of such?

While yes there was discrimination against the Irish, however, do we now see say a Chinese history month, or how about a Japanese history month? And what of the Native Americans, do they get a month, after all, it seems as though most others, who have been oppressed, are getting a month to honor them, are getting one, when are they going to get such? And what about the native people of the Hawaii or the Bikini atoll, what about their month? Surely the loss of their sovereignty should warrant a month as well.

Giving honors to one group, opens up doors and questions that we may not be ready to answer.

Really??? I've never heard that before. Ever.

I don't think anyone else knows it either based upon what people do on St. Paddy's day.

If you're correct then that tradition has taken a complete 180 from itself.


only in america.
