American History 101

True life: I got kicked out of class in the third grade for bringing this up.

Left out racism, and ‘otherness’ of two. The Germans and the Irish. Sad thing is, in the late 1800s and early 1900s the Irish were consistently pitted against blacks to see who would work for the least amount of money. Together they built NYC’s Central Park, though neither of them were allowed to enjoy the park after it was built. 

Seriously, if you guys call this ‘historical’ awareness you guys really need to read more. There is a huge a difference in American history over “white” and Caucasian.  

Actually I’m going to need your faux informed ass to do a bit of research.

German and Irish people are not Caucasian.

They did not go through any of the shit Black and Native people did in America. Their “hardships” should not be compared to the genocide of Native people nor should it be compared to chattel slavery.

Any type of shit white people put other white people through does not fucking matter when at the end of the day they were still treated better than my black ass would of been.
