    But my question is based on Ireland being a hugely class based society and is asking how will people who don't conform to the stereotype Irish Man/ Irish Woman get on and advance.
    Passing through my local university there are obviously now thankfully, a few more students of colour but they seem to congregate together in the canteen.

    My guess is that if you are of colour and not from a middle class background, I would be fairly sure you're future here will pan out like other working class folk, especially outside the Pale.
    You may benefit slightly, because you may be found as more attractive by some and also when some D4 bubbled clown in The Irish Times and a few nuns discover that employment rates for your group may be a bit lower, so quotas will be introduced.

    On the other our eastern European friends born here will have substantial advantages e.g. their home language as a leaving cert subject and a huge propensity to think in strategic terms.

    So what are your views?
    The Africans and Arabs will continue to have massive rates of welfare dependency and their children will likely be the same and vote for hard left parties or SF in order to get even more benefits.
    The Indians and Pakistanis, Chinese and Philipinos will continue to work hard and their children will all be well educated and successful and all vote for FG.
    The Poles and other Europeans will all continue to work hard and their children will be well educated and successful and all vote FG.
    If the economy tanks the Africans and Arabs will stay as they wouldn't get such a dole anywhere else but the rest will leave as they are citizens of the world.

    I'm sorry that you are made uncomfortable by seeing people who don't look like you in public.

    I think Pakie Bonner will have to change his name or Donegal will be in trouble from all the city slickers who wet their knickers (male or female) at the slightest whiff of Islamophobia.

    How do you know who is unemployed?

    Is it cause they're black?
