How many people would guess that the poorest county in America is 99% non-Hispanic white?

But this amelioration of contempt for the retrograde attitudes of poor whites on the part of elites is blocked in part by the racialized consensus of the 19th century which served to uplift the Scots-Irish!

After 250 years they have only the vaguest recollections of the nature of their British antecedents.

Their family structures, religion and politics, and social lives all remain unchanged compared to the wholesale abandonment of tradition that’s occurred nearly everywhere else.That is, a parochial clannish folk trying to hold onto to their traditions, albeit with the downside of being inward looking and often regressive (downside from the perspective of Westerners that is).What these people lack in cosmopolitan openness, they make up for in adherence to authentic values which can’t but help earn some admiration.The Scots-Irish were the prototypical cowboys, pushing into the Appalachian wilderness despite the attempts of the British crown to restrain them.Though the Scots-Irish are not “Pilgrim stock” in their length residence on the American continent, the majority were not immigrants to the United States, they were settlers of the American colonies.It is true that Scots-Irish Americans are arguably among the more racist white ethnic groups.
