From The Journal:

Ireland becomes fourth country in world to celebrate Black History Month

Oct 4th 2014, 10:15 AM

IRELAND HAS BECOME the fourth country in the world to celebrate an annual Black History Month, following in the footsteps of the US, UK and Canada. …

In the 2011 Census, African people represented 1.3% of the population. One in three of those with African ethnicity were born in Ireland (19,694 people), as were 36.6% (2,337) of those with other black backgrounds.

“What it means to be Irish is going to completely change, it’s already started … it will have completely transformed within two generations.”

So, uh, Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy and then …

  1. So, Ireland no longer belongs to the Irish.

    It belongs to invaders who claim to be New Irish, and New Irish must take precedence over Old Boring Irish.

    Americanization of the World.

    Blacks success in sports and pop music plus their magic negro victim narrative made them the new sacred icons of cucked out white race, esp in Anglo-Celtic world.

    Afro-hedonism as new culture and new religion.

    The Asians aren't this stupid, and, for as much fun as we make of them for being less masculine than whites, Asians are tough enough to resist the pathetic horde. Africans - while violent - are easily repelled by an organized forced willing to put up a minimum of effort.

    If whites don't wake up, history will laugh at us - and it should.

    Wiki:


    the 2011 census recorded 58,697 people of Black African ethnicity and 6,381 people of any other Black background resident in the Republic of Ireland out of a total population of 4,525,281
     
    'Black African' plus 'Black Irish' plus 'Black, Other' in Rep. of Ireland
    2006: 44,318 (1.06%)
    2011: 65,078 (1.44%)
    2016: 64,639 (1.38%) (Census 2016 PDF)

    Have Subsaharan Africans really declined in absolute numbers from 2011 to 2016?

    I notice their census asks "Black Irish or Black African," like that, as a pair, as one ethnicity option. While the pairing of these terms pretty clearly implies Subsaharan, to me, could the historical term 'Black Irish':

    Black Irish is an ambiguous term sometimes used (mainly outside Ireland) as a reference to a dark-haired phenotype appearing in people of Irish origin
     
    (See, e.g., the "Atlantid" and Atlanto-Mediterranean types in the old European racial anthropological system.)

    All it would take is a small fraction of the to answer 'Black Irish' in 2006/2011 who changed to 'White Irish' in 2016 to to screw-up the numbers...

  5. My God! According to the article, some of these blacks have only lived in Ireland seven years and they’re already complaining about how the Irish haven’t done enough to recognize and accommodate them! Then they have the audacity to crow about everything they’ve contributed to the Irishness of Ireland.

    Please, somebody, pinch me. Wake me from this nightmare.

    I don't know. The Irish have c0mpletely degenerated. After they lost the English as the main focus of their hatred, they've gone downhill. They were the first nation in the world to vote for gay marriage. Their prime minister is a gay, 1/2 East Indian. Most of their priests are homosexuals. The number of blacks they have is very small and they can easily be deported. Let's see what they do.

    That's the Black History Month game. Remember when they wheeled out one of the real-life "Hidden Figures" at the Oscars? I assume the reaction of nearly the entire audience was, "She looks pretty white to me."

    Such it is with important blacks throughout history. Check out the pictures to go with the names in those long lists they put out each February, and it looks like a bunch of light-skinned mulattos. Or just plain white people.

    How much you wanna bet the lists they come up with for Irish Black (but not Black Irish) History Month will approach 100% quadroon and up?

    I think Asians are that stupid. Except for China, rest of East Asia are part of US empire, and many of them study in the West and teach the same stuff there.

    Consider footbinding. Dumb and retarded, but it caught on because Asians are so slavish and imitative of status and power. I think maybe Confucianism is the problem here. It has no idea of authority higher than political and social. So, the highest power is that of man. Since the West came to dominate world power, many Asians just became worshipful of anything Western. This was necessarily a bad thing when the West really stood for solid values and great ideas.
    But look at the West today. Merkel and Trudeau are teaching the world to commit suicide. That is sold as' western values'.

    How long can Japan hold out against the empire? It got a black woman as Miss Japan, and black kids of Japanese women who went with black men are taking over sports. And Japan let Mongols take over their sacred sport of sumo.

    Look at Japanese kids growing up with anime. Some anime artists like Miyazaki did wonderful work, but it's mostly just fantasy of wanting to be white.
    As for S Koreans, they took this even further. If Japanese look to anime characters, Kors want to BE anime characters. All that transracial plastic surgery suggest inferiority complex and self-loathing. Officially, East Asian nations may be about nationalism but culturally and aesthetically, they are about worship of others. Also, stuff like anime, J-pop, and K-pop and internet access to global junk culture means young generation identifies with fantasy and fashion than with history and heritage. Without history and heritage, Asians don't have a culture since they never developed a spiritual system like Christianity.

    Also, polls show that 80% of Japanese and Koreans want to emigrate. They prefer to live in white nations and mix with whites. And the spread of SJW culture means they are totally slavish to Western culture and ideology because they are slavish and conformist.
    The fact is independent thinking is rare in Asia, though Japanese and mainland Chinese may be slightly different. Japanese also felt apart from rest of Asia. This cult of difference imbued with some distinction. And mainland China has its own narrative built on victimology and triumphology.

    Even mainland China show signs of this. Its boys worship NBA blacks as biggest heroes according to American Renaissance article, and its girls are whores.

    As your quote stated, 'Black Irish' isn't a term used within Ireland to refer to more mediterranean skinned natives. Native Irish whose skin is not pale white are not some separate group who feel feel from the rest of the nation. It's a dumb term anyway.

    However, the Irish government did start to crack down on asylum, immigration fraud and whatnot from Nigeria/Africa, so the dip could very well be explained by government action. What's surprising is that that action received very little attention abroad, as did the 27th Amendment of 2004 outlawing birthright citizenship.

    Well, in football (real football) there’s Paul McGrath, perhaps Ireland’s finest ever international player, and Chris Hughton, current manager of the English Premiership (top tier) side Brighton and Hove Albion and formerly a very classy left back in an excellent Tottenham Hotspur side.

    I draw your attention to the titles of a couple of Maurice (“The Quiet Man”) Walsh’s works…

    “The Small Dark Man” and “Blackcock’s Feather.”

All that transracial plastic surgery suggest inferiority complex and self-loathing. Officially, East Asian nations may be about nationalism but culturally and aesthetically, they are about worship of others. Also, stuff like anime, J-pop, and K-pop and internet access to global junk culture means young generation identifies with fantasy and fashion than with history and heritage. Without history and heritage, Asians don’t have a culture since they never developed a spiritual system like Christianity.

    Also, polls show that 80% of Japanese and Koreans want to emigrate. They prefer to live in white nations and mix with whites. And the spread of SJW culture means they are totally slavish to Western culture and ideology because they are slavish and conformist.
    The fact is independent thinking is rare in Asia, though Japanese and mainland Chinese may be slightly different. Japanese also felt apart from rest of Asia. This cult of difference imbued with some distinction. And mainland China has its own narrative built on victimology and triumphology.

    Even mainland China show signs of this. Its boys worship NBA blacks as biggest heroes according to American Renaissance article, and its girls are whores.

    Wiki:


    the 2011 census recorded 58,697 people of Black African ethnicity and 6,381 people of any other Black background resident in the Republic of Ireland out of a total population of 4,525,281
     
    'Black African' plus 'Black Irish' plus 'Black, Other' in Rep. of Ireland
    2006: 44,318 (1.06%)
    2011: 65,078 (1.44%)
    2016: 64,639 (1.38%) (Census 2016 PDF)

    Have Subsaharan Africans really declined in absolute numbers from 2011 to 2016?

    I notice their census asks "Black Irish or Black African," like that, as a pair, as one ethnicity option. While the pairing of these terms pretty clearly implies Subsaharan, to me, could the historical term 'Black Irish':

    Black Irish is an ambiguous term sometimes used (mainly outside Ireland) as a reference to a dark-haired phenotype appearing in people of Irish origin
     
    (See, e.g., the "Atlantid" and Atlanto-Mediterranean types in the old European racial anthropological system.)

    All it would take is a small fraction of the to answer 'Black Irish' in 2006/2011 who changed to 'White Irish' in 2016 to to screw-up the numbers...

    As your quote stated, ‘Black Irish’ isn’t a term used within Ireland to refer to more mediterranean skinned natives. Native Irish whose skin is not pale white are not some separate group who feel feel from the rest of the nation. It’s a dumb term anyway.

    However, the Irish government did start to crack down on asylum, immigration fraud and whatnot from Nigeria/Africa, so the dip could very well be explained by government action. What’s surprising is that that action received very little attention abroad, as did the 27th Amendment of 2004 outlawing birthright citizenship.

    Thanks for the tip on “The Guard”. “I’m Irish, sir. Racism’s part of our culture.” Given that I’m half-Irish, that explains a lot.

    For those who haven’t seen it before, below is a classic of Irish culture.
