Please, tell me, what has Polish government done to deserve reputation of being racist?
I want to hear some facts from you Cornelius, and not any made up fairy tales.
A coalition government consisting of the League of Polish families, Samoobrona and the so called "Law and Justice" party is a disaster for human rights in Poland. The League of Polish families (and Samboorona) have openly voiced hostility towards the Jewish community in Poland, they sponsor youth hate groups to attack the gay community and the authorities take little or no action to combat the rampant racism that is so prevalent in your part of the world. You do not have to be an expert researcher to quickly establish that many of the parties that make up your coalition government have a history of right wing nationlism and bigoted ultra catholic rhetoric.
The level of racist attacks and the conviction rate for such attacks is an indictment of the Polish government. Their complete failure to tackle this problem suggests two things, incompetence or complicity.
How can you look at Andrei Lepper and say your government does not hold high the flag of bigotry!!
And where did you hear it? A friend of a friend that knows a guy, whose distant relatives step daughters cousin read about it in a tabloid told you? Be more precise Cornelius. there's no room for gossips on this forum.
And to make it even, my close friend was once beaten up by a group of black women, just because she was white. You won't believe where it happened. In the UK.
It was my brother in law. Its not gossip. He had to leave Poland because of the repulsive racism that he experienced at the hand of the Polish and when he looked to the authorities for help received none.
While it may be acceptable in eastern Europe, its not compatible with the UK. Of course you get racists in the UK, and I fully believe your story about your friend. I find her beating just as repulsive as I find the treatment of my brother in law in Poland. There is a difference however, and that difference lies in the number of people in England who would behave in such a way compared to the number of people in Poland and the reaction of the authorities to such an act.
