The Irish of Barbados (Photos)By the mid-1700s most were free, their places taken by Africans. However, minute books from the island show that no more than a fifth of those who were freed became farmers, owners, or artisans. The remainder formed a wretched, poor and isolated community. In 1689, the governor of Barbados, Colonel James Kendall, described the Redlegs as being “dominated over and used like dogs.” He suggested to the local assembly that the emancipated slaves be given two acres (0.8 hectares) of land, as was their due, but the assembly contemptuously turned down the request
'The claims of Irish slaves in America was originally made up in the 90s'
The Irish have been victims of slavery for centuries, long before the Brits sent us to their plantations or the penal colonies of Australia. Icelandic DNA has big chunks of Irish in it due to the Viking slave trade, and Moorish slavers often raided Irish coastal towns. Yours is a revisionist view designed to convince the world that only brown people suffered historically, at the hands of 'whites'. History has been politicized for this false narrative. No Amount of 'establishment' west-brit historians signing bits of paper will change reality however. As for your absurd claim that the 'myth' of Irish enslavement is a 90s phenomenon, let me set the record straight. Seamus MacManus wrote about the deportations in the 1940s. William Edward Hartpole Lecky (An Anglo protestant Irishman) was writing about the the enslavement of the Irish In the New World in the late 1800s (History of Ireland in the 18th Century:vol 1). William Cobbet, an Englishman was writing about these things even earlier (A History of the Protestant Reformation in England an Ireland). And let us never forget that Britain turned the Irish into veritable slaves in their own nation under various iterations of statutes and penal law dating back to the 1300s, outlawing the very practices, language and traditions of the Irish people. So much for basic research Jason. Try harder.
So did the Americans, sadly. Swedish squareheads were supposedly doing bond servitude well into the 1870's, but who gives a frog's fat ass about them either? They were white.There's no doubt that the English colony in the Americas depended on Irish slave labour.
Hogan is of the opinion that only brown people truly suffered in history, and pointing out our own suffering is 'racist'. An example of the tripe Hogan promotes:
