Your name isn't McDowell by any chance?
'By "Irish" do you mean "white"?'
That was Pete's question. To me that suggests that he was actually accusing the previous poster of equating Irishness with white skin - i.e. racism - when there are now many thousands of black (and undoubtedly also proud) Irish - born and reared here.
Pete's post was the antithesis of racist and perhaps a little intelligence is required in reading the posts before engaging in rants that are so badly targetted that they are laughable.
There were some quasi-racist posts in the thread but stating 'By "Irish" do you mean "white"?' was not one of them by a long shot. So let's have a little bit of intelligence in these debates.
Otherwise we are no better than our esteemed Minsiter for Justice famed for ranting and foaming at the mouth - runnign across the road whenever he sees a TV camera to let off steam - and then having to apologise for his stupidity the next morning having lost a night's sleep. At least he realises after the event when he has been an idiot in public.
