This is getting rediculous, she's going for a couple of weeks on holiday....she's going to be with her boyfriend all the time...I'm sure she will have a lovely time.

I think she should go and see what it's like, yeah. I would feel weird if I was the only one tho. That's just me. Who knows, she might LOVE it there. You never know until you go and see in person.

Doesn't your statement say it all.?

It's why we invented the burbs.

I never expected that out of you. I wonder if I will ever be able to figure you out?

Have I ever said I wanted to be the only white bread in the black part of town ? I have no problem living in an area thats got some black and white on the same street but I don't want to be the only white. That would be crazy!

almost all Polish racists are cowards

True. They are scared of everything.

Because you're selling hippy trash, she definitely should be nervous, Poland is a very unpleasant place if you're black.

No Im selling her facts and you are selling her trash from your personal bin.

Hi,

I'm new to the forum and was shocked at this thread.

But I just wanted to let you know that my experience of being a black woman in Poland has been been really positive. I was apprehensive at first but most of the people I encountered were very friendly. Granted there are very few black people in Poland and some stared, but I got no abuse or at any time made to feel uncomfortable.

I'd say that the percentage of racists is more or less the same in every
European society. You'll see those scumbags everywhere

Woahhh!!!! scumbags, now thats a lil harsh don't you think :))) But seriously, there is nothing wrong with trying to preserve our EUROPEAN outlook and history, i'm againts racial mixing, we don't want our country turning into a Brazil for instance with them mutts,yeah great adition to a Polish history book our ancestors were native European blond haired blue eyed Slavs and now were blacks, what an upgrade, not!!!

LOLOL, I don't know if I would call them true racists, but the word fear is a good one. They fear alot.

Also Pennboy...it was your European ancestors who started the race mixing. I think your post is about 200 to 300 years too late.

That is something that Europeans tend to ignore although you have to remember Polish and other slavs weren't among the major colonizers.
Britain, France, Spain,The Netherlands and certain Scandinavian countries, not to mention Portugal all contributed to multiculturalism spreading their language, culture, and people all over the world :)

I'm new to the forum and was shocked at this thread.

Most "ethnic" message boards have a strong nationalistic streak to them. It's a byproduct of the anonymity the internet provides...people feel free to express how they really feel. When confronted with "reality", though, these thoughts are rarely overtly expressed.

But I just wanted to let you know that my experience of being a black woman in Poland has been been really positive.

Glad to hear this but realize that there is a difference between visiting another country and dating someone from another country. For some, that's where they draw the line.

Polish people tend not to be racist. you have one in every bunch and you might get a few strange looks as there are not many blacks in Poland but there is no disrespect envolved. Its the same as me an American going to China

Are you trying to say that blacks are inferior to European, blond and blue eyed people?
Because that's exactly what "upgrade...not!" implied....

I do realize there is a difference as I have been visiting Poland with my Polish fiance. We are due to be married in Poland later this year.

That's the attitude - open mind. You can't base a whole nation on one small-minded person. My fella and I have got more negative response in the UK than we have in Poland to be honest. We tend to visit Bydgoszcz a lot which I've found to be fine. I wondered around on my own a little with no trouble. However my experience in Warsaw was very different. I thought it would be easier there, with it being a bigger city, but people were a lot more rude.

LOL ahh well i'm a black female(Jamaican) with a Polish bf, I have been with him for 3 years and have no problem with his family or friends...you seem a little obsessed with this whole race thing. Yes racism exists and all but we live in England after all. I doubt there will be much difference with going to Poland. I am aware that Poland is ehtnically homogenous but who cares. There isn't anything to be nervous about in my opinion

The way you use the English language makes me want to vomit in terror. Then get angry.

Why does it save you time to write 'ma' instead of 'MY'. The letters are actually further apart.

Becos...

What the **** is wrong with you ?

Please acquaint yourself with Rule 8

I'd say your English is "insultive" to the native speakers of the language. Just read their comments. If you expect respect, you need to show it too.

As a non-native speaker I wouldn't go so far

Your yourself are proud to be Polish, aren't you? Is being Polish something you did to yourself or did you just happen to be born Polish? One would have to assume that if you look down on black pride you also look down on Polish pride. Or is it just that you apply one rule to whites and another to untermenschen?

Harry, you don't even see a difference between ethnicity and nationality, dude...

Could you perhaps repost a few of things which you say are good about Jews?

Harry, I think you have a problem with your Jewishness.
Relax, it is a topic about a back girl that want to visit Poland with her polish boyfriend.

She's using the kind of English found on discussion fora, not trying to write an article for the Sunday Times. No problem here.

You talking to me? I'm not obsessed. Girl I wasn't even thinking
about it till the lady did what she did. I'm ok now though...
the thread's getting old.

Go get yourself something better to do Cosmos.
People have gone on and on about my spelling in
my first post and I have been spelling my words out
in full since then. So your anger or vomitting, I really
do not give a toss about.

PennBoy, if that's the way you feel then I have nothing
else to say to you. Everyone's free to believe whatever they
want to believe afterall.

I don't think an individual is better than others based on race alone. I agree with MLK about character being important, even though he had character flaws himself, it's the thought that counts. How you behave is far more important than your race.

I don't get what you're trying to say and how it ties into my question to PennBoy....
HatefulBunch397 - | 658  
16 Apr 2009 /  #117
PennBoy thinks people with blue eyes and blond hair are better because of that fact but I think there's more to it than shallow physical traits. Character and the way you act matters more than physical traits.
OP PurpleLeo 2 | 47  
16 Apr 2009 /  #118
So you agree with me then. That it's not the traits that makes the person who they are but their character. But what PennBoy is clearly stating is that these blond hair and blue eyed people are superior to black people because it is a "downgrade" to find that in the Polish history books, a formerly blond hair and blue eyed "race" has become relatively black due to interracial mixing. Correct me if I'm wrong please PennBoy...
HatefulBunch397 - | 658

Well, apparantly PennBoy has a preference for that look which is fine but not everyone is like that. If he wants to be that way it's fine for him but he has to keep in mind not everyone's the same way. Maybe he should live in a commune and let no one in but those who fit his criteria and then he'll see people are people and they argue and are hard to get along with no matter what they look like.

I would rather be surrounded by "good" people no matter what they look like than jerks who look one way but are stupid.

Wow! Someone on the internet board who writes "fora" and not "forums"!

Respect :)
