skinhead is the fashion so it doesn't give any clues as to who the bad guys are.

if u think there is trouble coming just keep stum and walk on by.

Well, Polish people do tend to look down on uneducated people.

In all seriousness, how is someone going to know if you're "half Polish" or "full Polish"?

In all honesty, random violence doesn't happen very much here - it's usually for a reason. I've seen a couple of nasty fights, but they were between people known to each other - random people don't tend to get beaten up.

However, what do you want to do here?

Concentrate on that first, then.

Might want to work on your English, too.

Youll be fine in Poland. In my opinion the vast majority of people there are very nice.

Hes just being an ass as usual (im guessing hes talking about your grammar in that previous post).

Dont worry there is no rule to type in perfect english on this forum.

why in the hell would you want to live in Poland if you are living in Vancouver right now??? Seriously. You will have no problems. You are considered Polonia. You are foreign raised Polish. People don't care. There are so many Polonia it is not possible to hate everyone ;)

I don't know if they will but I'll personally find you and beat the crap out of you, halfbreed.

( I'll add that I'm just joking since many here are humor impaired).

Most Poles won't harm you unless you harm them first. Polish-Canadians are usually well received.

Some will, some won't, but then again you don't *really* want to know the people who won't so why worry about acceptance? You should try the larger cities if you're a little worried about standing out too much, because I'm pretty damn sure that you won't be the only foreigner out there.

Gary, skinheads in Poland generally target people of colour. If you are a man of colour than you might get some hassle if you happen to meet skinhead on your way. I currently leave overseas, but I never met one while in Poland, so I'd say you are pretty safe.
