Poland is indeed still fairly polarized between the average Neanderthal vs. cultivated hand-kissing aristocrats
It's an outdated and incorrect stereotype to regard Neanderthals as crude, unthinking, violent, territorial savages. At least that is the opinion now held within the scientific community:"The view of Neanderthals as club-wielding brutes is one of the most enduring stereotypes in science, but researchers who trawled the archaeological evidence say the image has no basis whatsoever."
Neanderthal DNA is known to exist in modern Europeans. Since Neanderthals lived in Europe well before the arrival of Homo sapiens those living today with this ancient DNA can take pride in knowing that their heritage has a even longer lineage on the European continent.
As soon as the former Jewish intelligentsia made a bee line for the States round about the late '60's with the rise of Moczar and the height of the Gomułka era, Polish society has probably been the worse off for it.
That's an interesting point. Coincidentally history also records that during the 1960s the civil rights era started in the States. And just look how even more fractured and violent the States are today compared to back then.
Racism as well was doubtless held in slightly greater abeyance back then!
Or it could be due to post-WWII Poland being more homogeneous than prior to the war and therefore there were far less situations for such incidents to occur between different groups. Of the foreign students from other parts of the world who studied in Poland during Soviet times their numbers were quite small and mostly lasted for the duration of schooling and limited to certain parts of Poland. Roma have been in Poland for centuries but their numbers have always been small. Although their nomadic ways mostly ended when they were forced to settle under the communist regime not all did and some left Poland permanently. And Jews who remained still found their way into comparatively middle class professions which provided a secure and comfortable lifestyle for themselves.
In my experience, African Americans are both welcome and interesting to people here.
In other words you find them to be fellow middle class tourists. Indeed, how bad off can such people be if they can afford to travel, study or secure white collar jobs in other parts of the world?
Threads like this one should be taken with a huge pinch of salt. Truly disadvantaged groups in today's world don't even have access to the internet nor do they even contemplate what their experience in other countries will be like as they bounce around the globe. Such people don't even have money for a plane ticket and hotel stays and very likely don't even hold a passport (and never will).
Threads like this one however do provide valuable insight to the privilege of perpetual victimhood. The OP obviously needed to determine if Poland would be another white guilt-ridden country like America and the UK and hence provide her with a rich and regular source of narcissistic supply.
