The Irish, who, at home, readily sympathize withthe oppressed everywhere, are instantly taughtwhen they step upon our soil to hate and despisethe Negro.... Sir,the Irish-American will one dayfind out his mistake.
- Frederick Douglass, May 10, 1853
Passage to the United States seems to produce thesame effect upon the exile of Erin as the eating of the forbidden fruit did upon Adam and Eve. Inthemorning, they were pure, loving, and innocent; inthe evening guilty.
- The Liberator, August 
11, 1854
The Irish are the blacks of Europe. Sosay it loud-I'm black and I'm proud.
- The Commitments, 1991
