Thread Name: Folklore: Black Irish: Etymological Consensus?
Subject: RE: Folklore: Black Irish: Etymological Consensus?
Does anyone have a theory as to why "The Armada Myth" is so popular among Americans? Is it simply a way to keep an erroneous stereotype alive? I would like to know what people in Ireland make of all this. Any takers?
