Back in what day ? what year ? Years back they had no chance for any advancement, and held menial jobs, like kitchen work, and jobs the white military personnel didn't want. In plain english, they were considered just short of a citizen.

These are the people who made America . You only need to look on your war memorials to see the vast amount of irishmen soldiers who died fighting for america... More
