    Default The Failure of Africans Intergrating into Irish Society.

    There are various posts on P.ie in regards to the people from Africa who came to Ireland to start a new life. After reading a few It has become apparent that it appears that the African people are not intergrating into Irish society and our way of life.

    This can cause serious repercusions further down the road, but the question must be asked, why are they failing to intergrate?

    For Example we have Insaka FC. a newly created soccer team in Dublin that has an African name and was setup by an ex African footballer for Africans in Ireland, of course legally it has to be open to all but why did they feel the need?

    We also have Miss Africa Ireland,



    And the African Students Association.



    The ireland Africa Music Awards



    And of course we recently had Africa day.




    Do we call these people, Irish, New Irish or African Irish?

    It's just a group of immigrants and descendants of immigrants holding onto their culture and traditions in a foreign land. No biggie. The Irish did the same in the New World and England.

    There are Irish associations and social groups right across the U.S, England, Australia and other countries. I don't see a problem.

    Surely as a people we should be coming closer and not keeping our distances and differences?

    We should become united otherwise we will end up being just as polarised as any other country with diverse populations.

    while your proposition might be true depending on one means by integration, most of the "evidence" you give would apply to Irish people living in England.

    this argument of 'sure the irish do this and that in other countries they have gone to' is really wearing thin. they probably do the said things but im sure those respective countries have a problem to some degree with it, my concern though is for ireland and not these other countries.

    There is no legal obligation on any immigrants to embrace Irish Culture, and it is nieve in the extreme to expect immigrants to do so.

    Immigrants may well see themselves as pathfinders!

    The European migration to North America did not integrate to enrich the native culture and neither was that the object of the migrants th North America.

    They went to North America to colonise it, make it their own and exploit its resources!

    I can think of at least one other plausible conclusion you might draw from the various immigration threads on p.ie.
    Repeal the 27th.
