Some a-holes committed the sin
Of insulting our friend Úna-Minh
A nation’s no race
And to their disgrace
If it was, then they still wouldn’t win.

      I believe you are forgetting our most important regressive trait. The ginger hair.

      Incontrovertible proof of Irishness.

      (take it from a real-life bona fide official Irish ginge)

        except that russia was invaded by the vikings and has a huge population of gingers. the name ‘russia’ has its roots in the word ‘red’. unfortunately, gingerness is proof of nothing except we can laugh at others who require sunlight to process vitamin D. HA!

        1. mildred st. meadowlark

          And a certain soulessness, of course.

          (Though, in other news, I did not know that about russia, and it’s a nice little bit of trivia, so thanks)

            Ah no, tis all about that now, t’be shure.

            Will ye have a drop, since you’re here.

          Weren’t the Russians originally named after their Viking invaders. Maybe we all share the same genes.

          Personally I lost my ethnicity years ago as the grey took over. Not a red hair in sight anymore. Is this God doing ethnic cleansing?

            No, doubt that, it’s academia, from Humanities.
            You see, we all come from the African continent see, and so share essentially the same jeans see.
            So basically see, you’re just ethnically fluid see, like gender fluidity but with ethnicity, see :)

            Yeah?
            See.

            That was the Humanities Science bit …..or something.

    Why give that ‘womble the dignity of not posting his email address. If he’s happy to send unsolicited hate mail, then he should be happy for his name to be associated with being a bottom feeding, racist peice of runny excrement. I would rather the excellent genes of Una-Minh were added to the Irish gene pool than any dribble this Barry idiot could muster.

    The irony is, he probably whacked this screed out, knuckle by knuckle, wearing a Man U shirt and sent it using his Sky broadband.

      1. Daisy Chainsaw

        How is sending unsolicited email telling someone they’re not Irish NOT hate mail?

        Cantankerous Pat, I’m forever in search of insults that will pass the sweary filter!!

    1. Lord Snowflakee

      Why do you automatically assume it’s ‘hate’ mail? Maybe he just doesn’t know any better.

    “You can only be Irish if you are a product of the Irish environment, this is biological.”

    Surely it’s a really poorly judged piss-take.

    It’s too dumb!

      Facts? It just goes to show that a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing. Poor sap picked up a piece of research out of context and thinks it proves Irishness is a genetic sub-lineage. The FACT is were all African, with approximately 0.01% margin of error.

    1. mildred st. meadowlark

      Yes, and obviously to protect their hallowed green blood, intermarriage is the only course.

      Back to the days of marrying cousin Seamus so.

    Because she’s been subjected to horrible racial abuse does that mean we have to give her a pass on describing herself as a Social Media Virtual Assist?

    1. ahjayzis

      I thought it was mercifully concise. Someone who runs your social media presence – remotely, so virtually.

      I’ll give her a pass for not using “Influencer” as a job title ;)
