I look forward to that, he comes across as an admirable character. I found his book “How the Irish Became White” very informative. I didn’t realise until recently that he was an ex-comrade of Theodore W. Allen who wrote “The Invention of the White Race”. Immigrants have arrived on that continent and gradually liberated themselves as races/peoples/nations, but the original sin remains - the oppression of descendants of slaves as a people caste.

'The tradition of all the dead generations weighs like a nightmare on the brain of the living.' Karl Marx, 1852.
