Dziekuje!

To jest nieprawidłowy. Jest napisane jak dziękuję.

I loved Blood in, blood out, and I'm a huge fan of the Habits as well, which is why I'm correcting you for free.

UK, Ireland / Poles in the UK, you know were the door is [102]

There is sth to be said for payback and my student this morning thinks that many Poles still feel cheated by GB from WWII.

I'd love to ask this student of yours how the second world-war has affected him/her personally.

Life / New Polish generation prefers black culture? [145]

Only rich people can make choices of what music to listen to...

You can listen to music for free on YouTube. You can copy music very easily from other people in your neighbourhood or the people from your school, since a lot of people download or convert music to mp3's these days. I know that's illegal, but I can think of worse crimes than ripping music, and people who can't afford to buy music won't buy it anyway, so there!

I do not think you understand poverty

I've spent my whole life working for minimum wage or less than minimum wage, and I've been homeless a few days as well, so I think I know poverty better than you do.

where are you from... and what ethnicity are you...

I'm from Holland, and I'm an original cheese as we say here.

;)

Hispanics promote it through music... not mainstream though
Blacks promote it through music ---> mainstream....

Yeah, while Hip-Hoppers are trying to fight this mentality, but they don't seem to recieve much understanding or support from people like yourself.

people get killed and drug infested...

Do you think it was any different in the late sixties and the early seventies? (It was probably worse back then!)

you are spitting on their graves by telling me they do not promote rap...

I'm not denying that as I've already mentioned Gangsta Rap, but Hip-Hop doesn't have anything to with Gangsta Rap or gang culture. Just like Punk isn't Heavy Metal, and Rock isn't Country! (What's so hard to understand about that?)

if you do not think this is the prevalent part of the youth of this culture in poor areas... usually black neighborhoods for them... you are mistaken...

I'm not denying that, and I'm not mistaken. You are mistaken when you compare Gangsta Rap and American gang culture to Europe's Hip-Hop subculture, because over here Hip-Hop is Hip-Hop, and over here we don't talk about all that good stuff you're referring too, and the ones who do, get ridiculed for being what we call a plastic thug or studio gangster.

they should have better music if they want to help themselves... the gov't doesn't need to step in...

I agree! I also know how Hip-Hop started and what it used to be like in the USA, so please, don't blame the wrong people for liking a style of music which has nothing to do with crime and gang culture. We can't help it that gangmembers think it's ''Hip-Hop'' to deal drugs and murder each other, and as far as I'm aware there have been *loads* of Hip-Hop artists who've been trying to spread a positive message against gang-related issues.

I agree people should take Gangsta Rap out of the air and ban it from television, but guess what? The predominantly white businessmen who are occupying all those jobs in the media circus like to promote and sell all that sex and violence to the masses because it's marketable, so maybe it's not *all* black culture that's the problem here? I hope you understand where I'm coming from.

Life / New Polish generation prefers black culture? [145]

knowing that rap music and everything it promotes is a bible for some... will keep people down...

How does this keep people down?

i can not see how it can be condoned when you can do more positive things with your music... your 'abilities' if you would go so far to say so... do so

I'm pretty positive I already showed you a couple of artists who were/are doing just that, and I know one of the Moderators removed all those posts because I'm obviously not allowed to argue a different side of the story, but the truth is that I could show you a million more rap artists who are doing or did exactly the same.

...

It seems you mistake gang culture and crime for Hip-Hop, and I'm even going as far as to say that you keep mistaking Hip-Hop for black culture. Please, try the Nubians if you want to get yourself acquainted with black culture?

Hip-Hop is nothing more than music which sometimes has political content, so what? It's good for young people to question their establishment and leaders at all times, because it keeps at least some people in check. It's actually good for older people to do the same. (Always!) What? Would you prefer a totally complacent and apathic subculture for young people, and only allow them to sing about roses, moonlight and how wonderful the USA - or any other country - is?

Oh, and Gangsta Rap really has nothing to do with Hip-Hop. Period. All I'm trying to make clear to you is that you should get your story straight before you place the blame, because you're blaming the wrong people. Period.

If it goes for texts most Polish hip hop "songs" bears positive message.

Exactly, and maybe we should end this thread - which is nothing more or less than disguised racism - on that note?

;)

You? Liberal? Dude, you're conservative as hell, and your every post proves it!

I think Polish youth like hip hop because it is a freer art-form than earlier styles of pop music and that appeals to the poetic unbound nature of their spirit.

Well, since I'm *obviously* not allowed to post anything on-topic here, or even say *anything* in defense of black people because they are people too, I'd like to thank you for being sensible and realistic, because in Europe and other parts of the world, Hip-Hop *really* doesn't have much to do with crime or even black culture, since most Hip-Hoppers nowadays seem to share the opinion that this music is universal and that music doesn't have any skin-colour. I think most young people in Europe like this music because it's a very free form of self-expression that leaves room for a lot of creativity, venting and experimenting.

:)

If this gets deleted I'm going to laugh!

I'd like to ask another question to this question: Are people who ask questions like these allergic to women?

There is an element of hope in this because it is a question ;)

My opinion is that you can talk girls into doing bad things, and that you can talk them into doing good things as well. (Of course the same goes for boys!) For the record: Most girls and boys are alright, and you can be serious your whole life, so do whatever the hell you want to do when you're young, and don't let *any* of these bitter old folks tell you how life works..

a lot of aspects need to be taken into consideration, such as where you met, what made you take interest in one another...

I'd like to see more people who are *willing* to believe in each other, because only with belief in each other will we ever achieve anything. The way I see it, there are no ''good'' or ''bad'' people, but only actions and consequences. Consider this: Maybe love is like a flower which actually *needs* water to grow and blossom, so maybe it doesn't need any judgement calls, any fingers or any lectures, and maybe all you need to do is to show a little love and belief in someone who got his or her heart torn to pieces a little too often. See, I can hope for a flower to grow, but I can also choose to give it some of my time and actually *give* it some water.

;)

I've never met any trash!

Love / Polish women are the most beautiful in the world! [1718]

Yeah, they look rather ugly.

I wouldn't call those wonderful sentiments, no.

I don't know where you all come from, but i have visited quite few countries in my life and saw many beautiful and not that pretty women in various parts of the world..

I'm from Holland, and of course you're right. I should probably feel blessed anyway, because I find many women attractive. (Or perhaps I should feel cursed instead?)

Poland is not different!

Doh!

;D

Thats funny....coming from somebody that just posted several hundred words of nonsense.....

Hilarious indeed!

Not only are you some of the ugliest people in Creation, but you have either a of LACK of attractive qualities, or you HAVE characteristics that actually MAKE you UGLY to the opposite sex.

Love / How do Polish men feel about gender equality? [780]

I wouldn't mind that either, although I have to say that it still looks like most girls *do* mind dating a guy who's less successful than them financially? (Or maybe that's just Holland!) Feel free to disagree with me if you're a guy, but I *really* think that most guys would prefer activities over fashion and that sort of stuff, and don't really care much about all the material fluff when they're genuinely happy with the woman they're with. I guess a lot of guys still feel like *they* should be the ones to provide for their partners though..

:S

..and maybe some chicks reinforce that belief?

Maybe, but I *still* think we'll understand each other much better when we're able to drop all that false pretense, and communicate without making too many judgement calls, especially not when those judgement calls are being made from one single perspective without actually taking some time to take the other perspective into consideration. (Or is that psychobabble too?)

@rozumiemnic
I wouldn't exactly call that a fantasy of mine!

xD

Joking apart, I have heard of something like this...come to think of it, I heard it happened in Poland.....

It wouldn't surprise me if something similar actually has happened, but I have to admit I've never heard of anything like that before! Just saying that theoretically it *is* possible for women to overpower men by using tricks, drugs or weapons.

Love / Is rape so common in Poland? [95]

Rape is a violent act , there must be at least some form of self defence (eg. verbal or physical ).

Okay, I'm going to let the sick part of my brain work for a few seconds here! What if a girl drugs a guy, ties him up really good and feeds him Viagra pills when he wakes up, so she can have unwanted sex with him repeatedly, even against his will? (Just imagine she's really, really ugly or something!) What if she humiliates him or physically abuses him? Wouldn't this case in this hypothetical scenario be labelled as a rape case just because the victim is a guy?

Love / Is rape so common in Poland? [95]

# 22 Netherlands: 0.100445 per 1,000 people

Which roughly means one actual person out of every 10.000 people got raped.

# 29 Poland: 0.062218 per 1,000 people

Which roughly means one actual person out of every 16.000 people got raped.

Is rape so common in Poland?

Conclusion: It's not so common. (But of course every case is one case too many!)

:)

Rape often goes unreported due to many social and psychological reasons.

Unfortunately.

USA, Canada / Now American men want to marry Polish women for polish papers. [38]

Yes, but it's typically not that commonplace among whites (abusing partners, leaving kids, and so forth).

No? Well, I wouldn't be too sure about the younger generations, and not to be excessively negative or anything, but I *do* see much more single mothers out here than let's say, fifteen years ago? But then again I don't really know if all those women experience this as a negative thing per se, so I'm not going to speak on their behalf or even expand on that subject too much!

It's not racist to remind someone considering a relationship with a black partner the cultural differences that exist. Trust me , there ar many and there is quite a chasm of mores, expectations, etc, etc.

I know, I have a few black friends myself. I've spoken with quite a few girls from Aruba, Surinam and the Dutch Antilles who have told me this about black guys quite a few times, so I'd say that's hardly racist coming from their own women! I also want to add that black guys who were born and raised in Holland tend to be gentlemen though. (Just being honest!) But you know, it's not about that. It's about Southern and how he puts his points across.

Some black guys are totally okay, but I guess you've never even tried to befriend anyone outside of your little race-box? Some black guys - depending on which culture they've been brought up in - can be really macho and physically abusive towards their partners as well though, but then again you have your playboys and your abusers among white guys as well. Either way, it's her life and her business!

Love / 20% of adult Poles are single and live with Mummy! [238]

It was a simple suggestion. On a side note, are you open to moving to where the jobs are?

I am, but you can see Stu's comment about the waiting lists in Holland. (I just simply don't have the time to explain how everything works here!)

How about university, is it possible to get a loan like in the US or Germany? How about studying in Poland?

Yes, it is, but only for University. I don't think I'll be able to study in Poland. I mean, I'll need a place to stay there too, right? And I'm not going to get a student loan abroad, that's for sure!

Hey man, we're just trying to help. Don't put your sob story out there if you don't want feedback.

I said thank you, but not necessary. It wasn't a sob-story either, it was a discussion between me and ''it's all about me''.

I'm afraid I can relate to what AJ is saying.

Thanks bro. I don't want drama and tears. I just want the simple truth to be out there because some people seriously seem to think my whole generation is lazy. Pisses me off a great deal. That's all. (And it's basically the same in other European countries, and I just really feel for all those young people who don't seem to exist anymore.)
