    You may as well admit that "race" is a social construct, not a scientific one. Once you get to that, all racism looks stupid.
    so if i see an arab looking lady in a hijab she more likely is 20th generation o'suilleabhain from the Beara peninsula...gotcha!

    You don't need to speculate here. Lots of other European countries as well as the USA have have had non-white immigration for a few decades now. We can look to those countries to see what will happen.

    They will continue to claim welfare at a higher rate than the native population, continue to commit crime at a higher rate than the native population, and continue to drag down education scores.

    See: France, Germany, the UK, Sweden, the US...

    We also have had Phillo and Paul. who are of course very much our own and Samantha!
    Of course, let's just ignore the ~40% unemployment rate among blacks in Ireland. Statistics like that have no place in the conversation.

    I think we need to ensure we don't import the hostile race-baiting politics from the USA, or further dilute our own values and culture, we must not put ourselves in a situation where we apologise for who we are in the process of trying to integrate these other people into our society.
