Subject: RE: Lyr Req: No Irish Need Apply
The author (Jensen) doesn't claim that the Irish were not discriminated against - just that there is no evidence of such signs IN AMERICA. On a quick scan of the article, he accepts they existed in 19 C. England and believes that claims they existed in the US are, in effect, a "false memory".
