Why would this person Bruce W. Tarras say "the Irish were  slaves too?"?

Update:

He also said he would not let an East  Indian person into his house as well as sayng the people running the convenience store in Chilliwack, B.C. Canada were running a terrorist cell (this is where he bnys his smokes btw)  Went so far as to say "he listen to Al Jazeera all the time .. B.S.  Does not read the paper, probably years since he "read a book"  He also sent out a support petition for a Tommy Robinson - look that one I challenge you.  He used Facebook to do this on Change.org -publicly

Update 2:

Bruce W. Tarras of Chilliwack - formerly Maple Ridge - said he would not let an East Indian person into his house and the people running the Vedder River convenience store where he buys his smokes were terrorists.  He does not LIKE it that they listen to a non English radio station in their own store ... how nice of him .. STAY AWAY FROM THE STORE  .. I THINK THIS WOULD SOLVE HIS "PROBLEMS"

Update 3:

    Popular among racists, white supremacists, neo-Nazis, white nationalists and neo-confederate groups, the “Irish slave” myth is often accompanied by statements to the effect of, “Our ancestors suffered and we got over it, why can’t you?” According to Liam Hogan — a librarian and scholar who has tracked the myth — references to these “Irish slaves” are used to derail conversations about racism and inequity. Fake history.

    The Irish were encouraged to come to the US to work on the railroads and they were used and mistreated.

    Apparently Mr. Tarras knows his history. The Irish have been treated as badly by the English and American as the blacks for centuries.

      The Flannagan name is Irish 👍🏻 And there is nothing wrong , nor racist with being proud of your heritage.
