The United States, beginning with the American Colonies was pretty much a White Protestant boy's club. In the mid 1800s a whole lotta Irish Catholics converged on the boomimg young nation and kinda shifted demographics around. yup CHANGE.
The Catholic immigrants took a lot of heat & faced a lot of discrimination. The Ancient Order of Hibernians was created to
act as guards to protect Catholic churches from anti-Catholic forces in the mid-19th century, and to assist Irish Catholic immigrants, especially those who faced discrimination….
So, why has the Cincinnati chapter decided to discriminate against a similarly founded group this St Patrick's day?
yeah, change sucks.
