    Obama revels in his Irish roots

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2...nd-europe.html

    Beaming before an exultant sea of people in central Dublin, U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday revelled in his distant Irish ancestry, offering spirited thanks from tens of millions of Americans who trace their own connections to Ireland.

    With his wife, Michelle, at his side, the president told many thousands who had gathered: "We feel very much at home."

    In a speech devoted as much to personal pride than overt politics, Obama said he had come to reaffirm the bonds of affection between the United States and Ireland.

    "There's always been a little green behind the red, white and blue," he said to cheers.
    Uh oh... Obama might also have ties to the IRA!

    That man is black, white and Irish? Then why, exactly, is it racist to dislike him? Which race would it be racist against?

    I seems to me most people I hear from about it have ancestors tied to Ireland. I don't see why the Irish think it's big deal having another failure have any connection.
