I'm happy not to have continued with their opinions as my own.
you know. my grandfather I think was like that because when they arrived in
America, they had so much to deal with then, it was fueled hatred, because they
were struggeling to become a part of the polish community, on top of worry for their
families back in poland, forced integration ( this was planned by local govts too)
with other minority groups such as hungarian, Italian,etc.. which back then were so
seperated.. no one was allowed to mix and marry ( hungarian with Polish) etc.
so when my dad was born, by then it eased up a bit, but then they dealt with
a new onset of problems involving the communities.. and it was more of a rich vs
poor. how much money do you have type of problems..
and the kids from my fathers neighborhood all were clothed the best they could.
they didnt have the money and saved what money they had/made and the
economy just crashed.
then me growing up. my dad would say things, but I would just look at him like thats
not very nice of you to say, ( but never said it out loud to him or risk getting my dupa
kicked ) LOL...
