"The anti-Irish stereotypes have been more harmful than the anti-German ones..."

I disagree. As an Irish-American growing up in Irish Woodside, there were Irish "stereotypes" all over the place. I never knew anyone to be "harmed" by one. St. Patrick's day is coming up & the annual showing of "The Quiet Man" will be on the tube someplace. That movie sends up every Irish Stereotype out there. Yet nobody complains about it. We just laugh it off. The Irish are thick skinned enough to laugh at ourselves all well knowing that the Irish contribution to the building of America is insurmountable. .
AFAIK, theres no movement to "Gone With The Wind" that movie as in banning it or pre airing disclaimers about it.
