Why do irish americans say they were treated worse than black people?
Some even like to say the irish were the first slaves in america well that myth has been debunked according to the internet the claim is used by white nationalists to minimize the hereditary chattel slavery experience of Africans and their descendants have used the false equivalence myth that irish were slaves to promote racism against African-Americans or claim that African-Americans are too vocal in seeking justice.

African American like yourself should Google Oliver Cromwell and 1641 rebellion.
