I'm 2nd Gen Irish-American, and I find it fairly disrespectful when I see a bunch of retards running around wearing green and drinking Guinness to act like they're Irish for a day...

    LOL @ the idea of Killian's still being Irish. Fail. Beamish is the only way to go.
    How is that disrespectful at all? And how does somebody act Irish?

      Well, I am not really a fan of St Patrick's Day. I am not Irish and I think national drinking days like this are a bit silly. Also, this past Saturday was the big party day for all this because it's A&M's spring break, so every one seemingly left town.

            How about if you hide a bunch of chocolate eggs around your house for Easter?

            These are COMMERCIAL holidays. They have little/nothing to do with the underlying reason for them.

                Appletini and Ectoplasm are two cocktails I can think of.

                  Worst comparison ever. How is wearing green and drinking disrespectful. Sure, the Irish are associated with drinking, but 99% of Irish-Americans embrace St. Patrick's day and all it's traditions and connotations.

                  And ZZOMGZ I'm 3rd generation Irish-American and I love today and don't find it disrespectful.

                    It's a proper comparison. It's a day of celebration, but it isn't Mardi Gras.

                      Right, because we all need to celebrate according to your standards. Who are you to tell somebody how they should celebrate a holiday?

                        So imitating the color of someone's skin and playing against hundreds of years of discrimination = wearing a color associated with the country and emphasizing a social misconception that is embraced/accepted by the majority of that race/heritage.

                        Yea, same thing...

                          you know corned beef and cabbage isn't really irish right? Corned beef was introduced to the Irish-American immigrants in New York by the Jewish.


                          Sig by me... Hold the applause.

                            It is the same thing. When people who have zero Irish affiliation dress up in green, then go out and get drunk and act like retards...that is exactly as if I put blackface on in February.

                              So if I celebrate Christmas and Easter even though I am an atheist...that's completely disrespectful to Christians?

                                Well, the whole christmas tree/easter egg nonsense is, in theory, sacrilegious. However, going into that would probably get this thread locked.
