Irish Didn't Exploit Their Persecuted Minority Status

A Familiar Sign Throughout The U.S.A Showcasing Discrimination Against The Irish.
The second largest ethnic group in the USA had to endure terrible hardships and discrimination - even more than African Americans or Jews. Rather than hanging on to the past, they chose to work their way out of the situation and assimilate. According to the Census, there are 34.5 million Americans who list their heritage as either primarily or partially Irish. That number is, incidentally, seven times larger than the population of Ireland itself (4.68 million). Irish is the second-most common ancestry among Americans, falling just behind German.
