IRISH NEWSPAPER PLAYS "RACIAL" CARD at prodding of the industry

The carriage horse trade in NYC is primarily made up of Irish immigrants. But it also includes Italians, Eastern Europeans and African Americans although not in as great numbers. In the early 90s, the industry successfully turned the conflict into an Irish issue - making it seem like everyone was against the Irish. We will not let that happen again because it is blatantly not true - it was not then and it is not now.
The article in the Irish Voice states that we - "the animal rights terrorists" - yell things at the drivers. We call them Leprechauns and make fun of their brogues. Interesting charge (and untrue) considering that many of us in this movement - are Irish - both native, 1st and 2nd generation. The real truth is that these thugs (and it does not matter what their ethnic background is) yell at us. They call the men "f**gots" - or make insulting, crude and sexist remarks to the women.

And don't forget this PETA video now on You Tube captured by PETA employees. In it, an individual (driver?) covers his face with a bandanna - but not before he is clearly seen, curses at the PETA employees and calls them "wankers." These so called "family" people may have been able to fool the Irish Voice into believing that the Irish are being discriminated against in this country -- but the truth is quite different.

I tried to contact the newspaper and placed three calls to the writer and publisher but none were returned. PLEASE WRITE A LETTER TO THE EDITOR PROTESTING THIS CHEAP RACE BAITING - Letters to the Editor: [email protected]  .
