When it's used as a stick to beat others with, it's certainly not something to celebrate.
I tend to agree with this point,
Polonius, your a poor excuse for Polish American, you put down other kids who learned beside you, what kind of educated
man would do this? fully knowing the fact that all children learn at different levels and that this isnt the fault of the children
so why would you call them mongrels?? the only person I see as a mongrel is you at this point, you should not post representation
on this board of yourself as the ultimate POLISH AMERICAN when you clearly stink at it!!
Respect is something that is earned, I dont see how you would earn respect when you knock down others!!
education should have taught you this as well as your parents!
That is a Huge Polish American Tradition, to respect others, something you forgot to learn, you can be proud of who
you are and your ancestry without cutting down people that have done nothing against you.
Let me also make one thing clear, I am second generation, I dont watch the telelvison 6 hours of the day, I dont have time, most
Americans dont, unless they are laid off , then they have alot of time, not their fault though.
what gets me is that it seems like everyone gets a general idea of how Americans are by watching television in Europe as well
and base their opinions on that. BTW California is a entertainment state.. so how you get around that when you live
around pretty much all the movie stars in America I dont know.
Europe has sports, different kind, but none the less sports they invest in as well, and this is also a big deal over there, with racing
and hockey and soccer.. come on with this media crap.. its not about that we all know it.
what i see is that people cant get over the fact that no one is better then anyone else!! its a huge world, you can choose to live
where you all want to, and still make choices of helping others.. that includes poland if you want.
I just find it really fricken silly that a Polish American is ashamed of his own.. take the silver spoon out out of your fanny and
quit acting like your the representation of the whole.
To Others on the board, what defines you is your business, some may struggle, some may have a easy time and not have
to fight , but in the end you became who you are because your family survived and none of us would be here if those before us
didnt fight their way to get to this point in time.
Lets not forget that !
