I'm not equating black people with asylum seekers.[/quote]Pidge said:Now now Catalpa, are you equating black people with asylum seekers again? I thought that we'd be through this...Catalpa said:It's probably an eye opener for you Pidge but if you lived in Blanch all this would come as no surprise.
People arn't living here on fresh air you know- the money has to come from somewhere to live in one of the 20 most expensive cities in the World.
But if you know how people who have no jobs yet can afford to live in 3 bed semi Ds, car, mobile, good cloths, bring up kids etc and do it all on one round of social welfare please let me know so I can jack in the day job! :wink:
Right, so how do you make the leap from seeing people with houses with cars, mobiles etc to judging that they have no jobs? It's quite a leap.[/quote]
Because one would expect to see a correlation between those people with houses with cars, mobiles etc and a visible presence in the workplace - and that correlation is just not there!
BTW there are certainly decent and honest folks here too from the same background who are working - they are good people.
Also I'm pissed off with people who have no argument trying to brand 'Catalpa' as some kind of resident racist here. I was out protesting against racism directed against Black people before most people here were even born.
Any discrimination directed against Irish people who are Black is just as repulsive as discrimination directed against Irish peopel who are White.
All Irish people are equal in status in my eyes.
Ireland for the Irish!
