Dublin Gingerism

Having been in a mixed-race relationship in the past, I’ve gotten some racial abuse (“Stick to your own kind!” etc.). This has only happened once in Dublin and a few times in Turkey (I was only there for 3 days, the racists!)

However, I couldn’t help but laugh when a group of skanger urchins gave abuse to a poor guy who was walking outside Trinity college with his girlfriend.

Ah look at yeh, yeh ginger bollix!
(and then to his girlfriend) Is he yer boyfriend? What are ye doing with a ginger lad!

I think its funny that one of the physical features of being stereotypically Irish results with abuse like some minority group.
