Many Polish people have darker complexion and get tan easily in summer. We are not Eskimos. Do you have any other problems?

My mother was like that as far as the complexion... My Dad said it was the Gypsey (misspelled I think) in her.

You are dark because at some point one of your ancestors slept with a mongrol. AKA as gypsy. You are not of full european heritage.

"Mongrel dumbass"

Thank you for the spell check you should know you are a "mongrel" yourself correct? How's grandma moon-hawk coping with Small Pox??

How was I slagging him off? He asked a question and I answered it. You simply claim he is a "mongrel dumbass" whatever that means.

I can understand if you were being friendly about it, but it's not a nice word and taken offensively.

And is this your little feeble attempt at poking fun at me because I'm Native American? Sad...keep talking and some day you might say something intelligent.

"What's so odd?"

Nothing odd. I have to ask what brought you close to the polish language and culture?

I always wanted to be darker :) it just looks, well, healthier to me

FISZ: would you mind telling us what is your tribe? People in Poland have a lot of respect and sympathy to Native Americans, although most of them "learned about Indians" from Karol May. I'm sure you heard about this guy by now, right?

Polish people went to Central America and adopted babies bringing them up as Polish. I am sad to inform you of these truths. This is the reason for the tanned skin.

Europe Awake just likes to play the racist.

I always wanted to be darker

it sure is, it has a smooth silky shine to it,

This josecitomadera is a clever and comical young man, don't you think LoneStranger. We could use this funny latino in Poland, maybe even Polish TV.

I like his sense of humor, who wants to discuss skin color on Easter Sunday, or any other day?

No-one is a 100% anything.........plus darker skinned people, their genetic make-up is more dominant in any mixing, so more likely to carry through to later generations...not to every off-spring mind you......don't worry about...its Easter!

"Dark skinned" Poles are not necessary mixed with anything (especially Central Americans :)). Damn, we're not Norwegians...
