there's a hell of a lot of jokes about Jews too
- Yes, there probably are, but they are not even one thousandth as horrible and dehumanising as those about Poles. Larry Wilde also published a collection of 'Jewish jokes' whose main message is: 'The Jews are very smart.'
If you study history in the US, you're bound to come across a Mr. Nicolaus Copernicus, who was Polish, no? This kind of refuted dumb Polish jokes for me
- What do you mean in the above quote?
I don't hate the British but they once ruled the world.. and they miss that dearly
- If the British ruled the world, it would be much better than it is now. And who is ruling the world today, and how the world looks like because of that?
[quote=Wahldo]They [the British - P.] will never admit you as their equals, it's beyond their comprehension.
- I've never-ever noticed that while staying in UK. Not even once. What you're saying above seems like a negative American stereotype of the British. Quite simply, the British, particularly the English are (apart from the Irish) the least prejudiced people I've ever met. And I must admit that Americans and Canadians seem to me the most prejudiced people I've ever met. It is interesting, this putting down the British by some Americans. I suspect that it's motivated by the desire to lift those Americans' self-esteem, isn't it?
