The Irish were enslaved longer than AA's were. Their conditions in Ireland for centuries were possibly worse than those of slaves. They were similarly restricted from moving, told where to live, forced to farm and eat only the poorest crop (potatoes in later centuries), and left to starve when times were bad. At least a slave in the USA was fed.

In the 1600's most of the slaves in the 13 colonies were white, and those were mostly Irish. There were blacks in Louisiana who owned Irish slaves.

On Montserrat, in the Caribbean, Irish and black slaves mixed... so that you can meet a person who appears to be black who will tell you he is Irish, because of this intermixing.

The treatment of the Irish by England is one of history's greatest outrage, and a fair amount of that outrage was committed in America.

In America there is also history of Irish racism against blacks. There were Irish who worked as overseers, some who owned slaves. Immigrant Irish rioted in NYC over the Civil War draft and attacked black people. More recently Irish in South Boston riotted to prevent school integration.

But generally the Irish are more socially conscious, in part due to the great abuse they've suffered.

All Blacks in America were NOT slaves. Some were actually FREE & some even murdered whites. Blacks had several Rebellions, so NOT all Blacks could even be enslaved.

The same group who were apart of the largest rebellion were also isolated in Coastal Georgia & South Carolina thus were able to retain more of their African Culture. This is how scholars were able to trace Black Seminoles back to their ancestors.

Yeah right, yet you whine about your own imaginary genocide.

Obviously you're just another antisemitic pig.

Some owned slaves themselves.

The rebellion planned by Denmark Vesey involved many free blacks.

They bought & owned them so they could FREE them.

That was not always the case. Sometimes they bought & owned them so they could get rich.

Not always. Black slaveowners, especially in Louisiana, owned both black and Irish slaves. This was not for the purpose of freeing them.
