There is nothing insulting about St Patrick’s Llamas are my lucky charms shirt in Ireland. What a strange idea. What is insulting are the racist t-shirts with ignorant sayings and pictures. They include drunk lives matter, Im so Irish my liver hurts, Irish today hungover tomorrow. Ireland is 21st on the list of countries consuming the most alcohol. The depiction of Irish people as short, fat, green clad men with red hair and peculiar hats, is atrocious. That is not a Leprechaun. That is a result of the carricatures made by the English to make fun of the Irish. A Leprechaun according to folklore, is an elf with pointy ears.
Americans have made a farce of St Patrick’s Llamas are my lucky charms shirt and it isn’t even theirs. So lets look at say, Martin Luther King Day and people dress up as black people, and wear insulting t-shirts with stereotypical comments. That would very abruptly be stopped. This racism is so prevalent in the United States that stores like Walmart and even Amazon sell inappropriate t-shirts. There are Irish groups that have called for the ban of offensive clothing.
