For example, I have mixed ancestral roots but I don't really see the need to take great pride in everyone of my ancestors' nationalities
well if you choose to not know or dont care thats your choice, if you have like 10 different mixes it would be hard to
figure out, none the less interesting if you could even count that high. :)
Not really. Just the ones that visit this site (naturally).
oh we have a new cencus enumerator who happens to know that the whole population of Polish Americans that he knows
Personally Arent Proud of their Ancestry.
put some people off by being too vigorous in their pride
Yeah, supposedly we wave keilbasa and make t-shirts and prance around..
I think those that spend so much time thinking about all of this need some serious help, because I certainly dont
spend so much time wondering why so many other nationalities that come to this site (POLISHFORUMS) why they
are wannabe Polish Either. its not my style.. and it would be wrong of me to accuse so many people of something
so foolish as that now wouldnt it.
because they obviously come here because they feel connected in some way, otherwise they would be on another forum
making waves now wouldnt they? Or would they?
Tune in next time for Trollers of the forum continues saga.
Please lets grow up folks, please lets discuss it like adults, we all can do this, its the accusations and stupid comments
like this one which sounds so bi-polar its not funny.. well it is funny, but thats beside the point.
Desperation to belong I suppose, not quite sure of what they are so there’s the need to prove themselves. I do not view them as Polish, you are what you feel in your heart, the right to be Polish has to be earned.
Thug, you shouldnt have wrote you are what you feel in your heart cause it takes away from the other stupid part of your paragraph
now I have to wonder WTF your saying.. cause it sounds like your nipping the bottle babe.
anyways... I love that I am American of Polish decent, I love my grandparents for bringing our family here, the struggles, as a kid
I didnt know any of this, but bullys would say stupid shyt to us as kids and we would hate being Polish, least thats my younger view
now as an adult, learning that this was only bullying, I appreciate that my grandparents came here, they sacraficed alot but made it
thru it and they did what they had to like anyone else's grandparent would to survive.
And to boot they had to put up with jealous family on top of it.. no one was stopping those who decided to stay from coming here too
they had options they choose to stay.. the world is a big place and if you have the wind against your back you will only move forward
Thats what they did
so thats my story and I am sticking to it.. :)
