i’m part irish

Here’s a small tidbit for the day: most black people in the US that aren’t directly from Africa, due to a bunch of things that happened during the slavery period, are Irish. We also can’t trace our routes back to Africa fully because records weren’t kept.

Bonus: My middle name is irish and my last name is derived from the irish.
Wore the beads so I wouldn’t have to punch some kid in the face.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
