Most of the Europeans that first came here were “Bond-Slaves” and were known from the country they originated from, not the color of their skin. The racial designation “white” was created by the Virginia legislators in order to separate European and African “Indentured Servants”.
The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners to be sent overseas and sold to English settlers. Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.
From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.
During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia, and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.
Not the kind of reception one would receive from a “White Nation”, eh?
The English never considered the Irish to be white. They believed the Irish “race” was the “Milesian race” because the genuine Irish (Celtic) people were supposed to be descended from Milesius of Spain, whose sons, say the legendary accounts, invaded and possessed themselves of Ireland a thousand years before Christ. Yet the English and the Irish both have the same white skin.
In fact, these White Nationalists today talking about “white America” wouldn’t be property owners back then, which were less than 1% of the colonial population, most likely they would’ve been whipped and beaten by their “white” master.
The classification of “white” being a race didn’t exist. In fact, you could say when the first African-Americans arrived in Virginia in 1619, there were no “white” people there to greet them. That came later. Racial slavery constituted a ruling class response to a problem of labor solidarity. “Bacon’s Rebellion”, an armed rebellion of European and African bond laborers against the Virginia Governor that took place from 1676 to 1677, so shook up the English Crown that a system of racial privileges for the property-less “whites” was deliberately instituted in order to align them on the side of the plantation owner against the African-American bond laborers. Soon slave owners would place bounties on runaway Black slaves and have Irish slaves track them down.
The Constitution wasn’t written for white men, it was written for property owners and taxpayers.
It got worse after Reconstruction, as poor whites were treated just as badly as newly-liberated Black slaves.
Whites have never truly been ‘equal” to the American aristocracy that rules over them. …. and the aristocracy is increasingly becoming non-white.
It’s always been about Class, not Race. Don’t let these race hustlers fool you.
The ongoing efforts by a tyrannical elite-class to force their vile, evil New World Order (NWO) upon the USA and all other Western countries is the same old class war propelled by the growing number of elite lackeys infesting corporations, government at all levels and among the easily-indoctrinated portion of the general populace.
I fear that the NWO will attain final victory and a New Dark Age will descend upon all Western countries. Then the elites will aim their evils at the Moslem world and after they are vanquished the novel “1984” will become prophetic as the evil forces of Western tyranny dash headlong against the swarming masses of the Asian who will likely unite behind China and the fight for total sovereignty begins.
