The past should never be forgotten, but if we live in the past, we won’t move forward in the future. Then our children will grow up I’m finnish you can’t pronounce my last name shirt with the same hatred our people have now. Racism is learned from parent’s and if parent’s don’t break the link it will never die out.

So I know it goes both way’s when it comes to thinking like this which is sad because we have learned nothing from history except to continue the hatred. Even though my generation had nothing to do with slavery, which by the way coming from an Irish family, I know a lot of this subject as my ancestor’s was as much slave’s if not worse, because an Irish slave’s life was worth a measly 5 sterling compared to other slave’s who was worth around 50 sterling. I’m finnish you can’t pronounce my last name shirt Hence why so many of our Irish people suffered and died because it was easier and cheaper to replace one of my people.
Which was why they could afford to string an Irish slave up by their wrists and burn the soles of their feet, why they was fed little and American old rail roads and road networks have so many Irish bodies left and forgotten through time. Because our kins lives was seen as worthless. A good book I have read about this, completely factual with good evidential information is called white cargo. Yet just because I am white even though these people knew nothing about me, I had blame for past slavery which is silly as firstly my family had nothing to do with it and I definately didn’t. Then there was the usual name calling and aggressive behaviour towards me just for the misfortune of being born with this skin tone. It’s sad and our past ancestor’s would be turning over in their graves seeing how we are continuing the hatred and mistreatment of each other.
