Thread Name: Folklore: Black Irish: Etymological Consensus?
Subject: RE: Folklore: Black Irish: Etymological Consensus?
My mom's mom, Charlcye Elrod, said she was Black Irish and bore a striking resemblance to a light Josephine Baker. She had black rizzy hair, high cheek bones, and a full lower lip. Sounds like a light Black Indian to me. It didn't dawn on me for years.
