America: The Land of Hypocrisy

Oregon, United States
Welcome to America, the land of freedom and opportunity! Here, there are plenty of jobs, but you can bet you won't get hired due to your religion or ethnic background! Hoping to escape from an oppressive life in Europe? Your dreams are only a short sail away- as long as you're a free,native, white male.
Did you leave Ireland because of the potato famine? Here, you can starve for an even higher price! You must have a job to buy potatoes, but we don't hire minorities here. If you can't bear the starvation, we'll pack you up and send you to die at Grosse Ile. Not the best name, but at least you'll perish far from the general public and prevent tarnishing America's precious reputation.
