Thread Name: Folklore: Black Irish: Etymological Consensus?
Subject: RE: Folklore: Black Irish: Etymological Consensus?
mg,
   I think Irish people are probably more knowledgeable about Americans (thanks to the pervasive influence of the American media) than Americans are about the Irish (thanks to the same media).
   If the American stereotype is a jingoistic ethnocentric with little knowledge about, or respect for, other cultures, is that far off the mark?
