Good. Maybe they’ll pay homage to their Irish roots.
Ya know with the indentured servants and immigrants.
Which as you know were at one point easier to obtain financially than African Americans.

What they are proposing to do is like renovating Versailles with, say, gang colors graffitti and spinning LED hubcaps to make sure gang members "feel included" no matter the fact they have ZERO role or history or contribution to that edifice.
