I’m under 18, I already have my State Fair ticket, and I had some great plans...
By now, I am sure that everyone has heard about what happened at State Fair on Thursday night. I also assume that most people also know about what is being said about race and how it may have played a part in what happened, especially outside the gates. But, as a teenager, I would like to point out that the reaction to the situation involves another type of discrimination.
They say that everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. But I don’t think that’s the only day all year that everyone gets to enjoy being Irish. Milwaukee’s very own Irish Fest gives people over three days to immerse themselves in all things Irish, including listening to Gaelic Storm and wearing plenty of green.
