@Basra why didn't Queen Victoria help the suffering Irish people? The Sultan of the Ottoman Empire helped.

The English looked down on the irish. Sad historical tidbit. and then the American black slaves have the audacity to say they were mistreated. Tell them to ask the irish.

The modern ones are very different from the stereotype. Nowadays they are corporate types making money on tax evasion. Also, they are not as conservative/religious as people make them out to be as their prime minister is a gay half Indian and they legalized gay marriage and abortion.
 
That famine is one of the main reasons why ~30 million Irishmen live in the USA today.

More Irish folks live in the diaspora than back in their Ethnic homeland.

Imagine 30 million Somalis in America. The cultural / political / financial influence. :banderas::ooh:

Too bad they had racist immigration laws before the 1960s. They even restricted Slavic and Italian migration in the 1920s.:damn:

In such an alternate reality, there would've been a "special relationship" between the USA & Somalia.

Irish are looked down upon by brits. Even though like a quarter of Englishmen today are Irish in descent.

Cadaan respected and somewhat feared somalis for being rebellious and fearless with no inferiority. For such a thing to happen we would have to be weak and docile like the asians and white passing races. If we were christian and agreed with their hypothesis of us being dark caucasians, they would have allowed us to migrate and live among them.

However we were strong willed but tribalistic and vicious to each other. Short sightedness was our weakness.
