Irish-American bigotry & racism

A recent 2-day train ride on AMTRAK from Florida to Boston gave me good cause to ponder the thorny issue of Irish-American racism and bigotry.

Bigotry and racism have been a blot on the reputation of Irish-Americans for centuries.  The scope and truth of this shameful problem may shock you.

I wrote an article about my too interesting train ride and this problem for my column on Examiner.com at:

Please read this article and pass it along – especially to senior citizens.
