How did the Irish become white?

Someone needs to put a 馃嚠馃嚜 flag here with us too?

From where I sit, I have no idea how they ever weren鈥檛. And in much of the U.S. they basically became the face of our police departments. Not something anyone [b]not[/b] white could achieve.

@bijouxbroussard bear in mind race is a social construct. Irish, because they were colonised were thought to be of "lesser racial stock" than Anglo-Saxons and other Germanics. Italians, Spaniards, Portuguese and Greeks had it the same. Which is ironic, seeing as Spain created the pintura de castas, which was the original blueprint for racial hierarchy.

@Funlov i have met very few Irish people but they were all a kind of pale creamy pink colour, with freckly things. some were a bit pinker...

but none of them was white.

have they changed suddenly? is it to do with COVID?
We have always been white
