Needs a spoiler tag. And a trigger warning.

They forgot Classism. Silly humans will always find a way to put down each other.

I'm not sure whom to ask, but I feel like there is a lot of expertise in this thread that might relate to my question, so I'll give it a try.

As a part Irishman, with children who are mostly Irish, how do I know if I'm being culturally appropriated today?

The Irish lost the right to complain when they got jobs and stopped voting Democrat.

This will require a two step process.

1) Look in the mirror.
2) Determine if you are white.

If you determine you are white you have no culture to appropriate.

The Irish are almost white, I suppose that qualifies.

I think it depends upon how old the mirror is. I'm betting a modern mirror is much more apt to consider Irish "white" than one from, say, a nice a antique mirror from the late 19th century.

Ugh. This myth that the Irish weren't regarded as white is BS. It's basically just a misunderstanding of another lame argument (that the Irish were big on the black/white divide because it made them "just white" instead of Irish), bolstered with a handful of cartoons and claims from a few fringe Darwinists.

I don't consider them really white. Nor do I consider Italians or most of Eastern Europe white. The Spanish and Greeks too. Motley group of bastards, the lot of them.
