I had more trouble with the lack of education and isolation than the race issue. Stopping school at 14 or 8th grade and not knowing about what is out in the world is the problem. The girls are 17. What are they able to do. Are they going to stay in the environment where they milk cows or they going to have options? They certainly don't have skills or education.

I'm just glad that the pale Bog Irish white trash are nowhere to be found.
