New York City’s Tenement Museum has erased the harrowing and inspiring story of a family of Irish immigrants who lived in the building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side and in an effort to appear “woke” replaced it with the story of black who worked near by and lived in New Jersey.
The museum opened in 1988, it was devoted to re-creating the immigrant experience of the more than 7,000 people, most Irish, German and Italian immigrants who inhabited the 22 apartments in the five-story building during the 19th and 20th centuries.
However, with the anti-white rhetoric and media driven narrative of whites as “oppressors” and “privileged” in the U.S reaching new levels of insanity the story of the Irish immigrant family whose struggles exemplified those of all poor European migrants coming to America has been blackwashed.
Not only did the black man, whose life story replaced that of the Irish immigrants, not live in the tenement there is no historical evidence any black people living in the building during the time period that is explored.
It appears as if the Irish are once out of favour with the wealthy, metropolitan elite of New York City.
