The hurricane rampaging through the Carribean again currently, brought again the plight of the so-called Red Legs in Bahamas. I'd only really found out about their situation over the last months & it's well documented elsewhere... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redleg
A similar situation arose with "Russland-deutschen" - Germans who, often encouraged by the German/Russian state emigrated to Danube region & Ukraine in 18th / 19th Century. Communism, Stalinism & WWII did often not work out well for these communities - many were relocated to Central Asian republics & were in pretty dismal situations.
Once the Soviet Union opened up however, Germany opened its doors to this community and offered them all the possibility to resettle in Germany - which about 3m did.
Given the, often violent, circumstances Irish were transported to the Carribean in 17th Century, have we a moral obligation to do something similar for those of Irish extraction who live at the bottom of the social ladder in the Carribean - appreciate the practical difficulties of executing / offering such a resettlement schema, but wanted to hear your thoughts.
These guys were also Irish speakers up until a few years ago, so should we open the door to a return?
