many idiots in America think that Polish people, and not just them but ALL foreigners from Europe are not white, simply Polish, or German, or Russian etc. that u have to be an American to be white
Yup, another reason why I find Americans (those X removed from their heritage) to be retards. At this point it's at a level of compounding.
I was born in the U.S., but my parents are immigrants. I was raised in Polonia. My first language was polish. I am know all of the traditions and cultural aspects. Half of my family lives in Poland, etc. It wasn't until I 'grew up' that I began to cherish my heritage - prior to that I was as American as they come. Now embracing my culture, I am not an American (to them).
It is racism, albeit it's subtle. It exists because they can get away with it. Nobody would dare say stupid stuff like that to a minority of a non-white skin color as they'd never get away with it. To me though? What am I going to do? Who will I complain to? I can rant all I want and people will look at me and think:
- You are white
- You have blond hair
- You have blue eyes
How the F are you being discriminated against? But it happens. I've spoke about it with my brothers and parents - we've all experienced it in some way, shape, or form.
All minorities are cool with me, and some Americans are, but the narrow minded, 1-dimensional ones are retarded. They've been to 2 major U.S. cities so they've 'seen the world' and they've tried sushi so they know 'ethnic food.' Clueless.
Never let it get to you. Think of witty comebacks if you want to make things fun.
