I probably could argue my point , nationality is not necessary race. Race is in ones DNA.
It has to do with one's distant origin. I leave it at that. The race I like is on the bike like West Virginia fallowing Mark. (he got to comfortable in Kentucky)

The year we were there, 3 young people were hung from an overpass during the revolt. The culprits were from the higher classed families and had no reason to act out the way they did. I could sort of see it if it was a more downtrodden sector of the population but it's not. The old wounds still run deep, but the older folk are sort of getting past it slowly.
Deep inside, we are still territorial animals, still seeking to take (by force if necessary) others' lands and tribal wealth. We (speaking in a generalization) covet that which is not ours, and seek to dominate. It's been that was since we first stood upright. The difference in us today is how far we'll go in the process or how eveolved we are in order to supress it. Most of us take our battles to the boardroom or the workplace and fulfill our material quests that way. Most of us.
What takes place in Ireland seems to be a cry for belonging. The fight is different now. As you say, the old order has calmed but the youngsters have decided its worth the fight, even though most don't understand what their fighting over. I bet if you asked folks why their fighting or why they hate each other, they can't give you a viable answer.

I see that around here. Those from Mexico feel their southern neighbors are an inferior class. There's just something about the south of anywhere .

I long ago gave up understanding the human mentality of wanting to feel better or more important than others based on race/ethnicity/whatever.

In my book it's simply an exercise in petty stupidity.......
