Its a highly acclaimed movie but I take exception to its title 'The Irishman'
Its not as if we are all criminals in this country - God knows we have worked hard for every penny we have earned
But to attach criminality to Irish people per se seems like racism
I doubt if any other country would put up with this shite

There was a film called "The American"
about a hired international American assassin played by George Clooney.

Thats OK when its an American film for a mostly an American audience
But its wrong to associate all Irish people with criminality
It criminalises all recent Irish immigrants living in th e US
Imagine a movie called 'The Blackman' which would likely create civil war in the US
