what if GENOCIDE happened to WHITE PEOPLE!?
ah yes, all those Irish Famines never happened. sure showed us.
We weren’t White when those happened though.
I feel like backtracing modern conceptions of what it means to be white is pretty useless though. Like no, the Irish weren’t what we think of as white if whiteness is a package of benefits, etc. But then neither was most any “white” person outside of Britain. Honestly, neither were a lot of people IN Britain. Like, race as a concept isn’t new but the way we think of it is pretty new.
I think the point is it didn’t MATTER then what the Irish were because nationalities were more important than “races” as we think of them now. But like. Irish people are white as far as we’re concerned today. And they were definitely starved and colonized. So the whole “what if GENOCIDE happened to WHITE PEOPLE” thing that person posted is pretty useless because 1- it has and 2- using new ways of thinking about race doesn’t hold up if you go far enough back in history. The question itself is faulty and assumes that genocide wouldn’t happen to white people today but “white” as a category separate from ALL other people of color is pretty new. When the Irish came to Chicago, they were treated like shit and killed if they went too far from their own neighborhoods. White privilege didn’t fucking help them then because it didn’t quite exist in the way it does now.
