  1. In my local pub here in Ireland there’s a sign behind the bar saying “No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs”. Supposedly it’s a genuine sign from Britain back in the day but I can’t verify it’s authenticity. Beside it is a framed picture of Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy front man and proud Irish black man) with a t-shirt that says “More Blacks, More Irish, More Dogs”. It’s impossible not to smile when looking at them both.

    We’re not perfect over here by a long way but we’ve always seemed to have a healthy disdain for authority. Our slightly fatalistic attitude has gotten us through tough times. And lately I’m seeing very similar attitudes and disdain in Americans. And it gives me hope.

    The fella in the t-shirt above isn’t just one man. He’s part of a revolution in perspective. America is in dire straits at the moment, that’s beyond doubt. But change comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s violence, unfortunately sometimes that violence is justified. Sometimes it’s a change of perspective. This one is more gradual, less obvious but (I’m only going by my country’s history) it can be the most effective.

    I could slate America till the cows come home but pointing out the positives would turn this already overblown post into a novel. You have given so many great things to the world that listing them would take me a week. (Although Bob Dylan should get a mention because he’s the greatest musician ever).

    Don’t despair, the sun will rise on a great America again. There’s a bit of work to be done first. And whichever way your nation heals itself, know that the world is ready and waiting to deal with a stable USA. And on a completely personal note, being as white as a polar bears eyebrow, black lives matter. Get well America ✊

  2. I know y’all might hate me I’m Mexican myself but in my opinion the immigrants taking drugs and other illegal stuff should stay over there but I think getting citezenship in America should be easier

  3. Seriously r/mademesmile? You permanently ban people for talking about politics but then you allow a post that’s not only politically controversial but a false narrative as well. No one wants to stop all immigration, we just don’t want unchecked ILLEGAL immigration. It’s not that hard to understand but the word “illegal” is always omitted to further the false narrative.

  4. No one wants to deport legal immigrants. Actually many of us praise legal immigrants for doing the work to get here and make a better life for themselves and loving America. It’s the illegal ones that we have a problem with. Many legal immigrants also have problems with illegal immigration.
