Are foreigners welcome in Poland?

If they are working / willing to work, integrate and aren't criminal they are welcome. If not, kick them out.

Fair enough point, Tuzin. They don't accept stragglers that bumble on. A contribution needs to be made in some form.

Every time i visit Krakow i see more non-Europeans, especially negroes and turks. :(

So yes, foreigners feel very welcome in Poland. Too welcome.

Doesn't mean they're all staying there.

Thanks for welcoming me, i'm integrated and i am not a criminal.
Where can i meet you to receive the keys of your house?

Doesn't mean they're all staying there.

I even saw a negroe with young children, so they start raising their kids here because they expect that Polish cities will soon be flooded with hundreds if not thousands extra blacks, comparable to the Paris, London, Amsterdam.

For those who think i just want to scare people, no left-wing EU is actively trying to divert more 3rd world goldseekers to Central/Eastern Europe. They want the rest of Europe to accept the same amount of asylum seekers as the west. They won't stop until every country has 10-20% non-Europeans.

I'm not thinking you want to scare me, I am thinking you're a depraved racist.

Just because i want Europe to stay European?

I wrote before, i only have a problem with blacks if they are criminal or if they choose to live in white territories.

Many parts of the world are for 99.9 homogenous. Sub-saharan Africa is for 99.9% black, India is for 99.9% Indian, China is for 99.9% Chinese. And none of them want their population to become 10% white.

And you call people like me racist just because i want Europe to stay for 99.9% European = Kaukasian?

some people are too politically correct to accept that other nations/ethnic groups can be racist too.

as far as im concerned, muslims in europe can stay traditional and true to their religion and culture, but europeans have to be more open, liberal and flexible about their culture in order to accept muslims. how is that?

Zuczek has a good point. I make little mistakes in pronunciation but nothing to sneer at. However, a few Poles make out that their language is somehow untouchable and have a guffaw/titter at little things which other people would let pass.

It's another way of wrapping further identity around themselves but what cannot be hidden is the victim complex and the lack of oomph that many have. Foreigners can bring a whole new dimension to thinking in different areas and this is the age of exchange.

Not all foreigners. Many are not willing to enrich other cultures.

God, I hate that term..."cultural enrichment".

What do the black chappies or arabs bring to the table, Seanus?

I'm aware of that, MC. Many are just drifters who are either here for the women or just a change. Being from Britain, I like a little variety as it provides spice. However, there are definite limits and I found my home city to be too diverse when I was back.

In Poland, a fair part of the culture is through the church. Quite a few outsiders cannot enrich that at all, just live with it. I also don't like that term as it is coined.

There you go. And you didn't even ask for it, I am sure.

Dark days are coming for Western Europe. One can only hope Eastern Europe will remain as conservative and nationalist as it is now. Free of minaretts and the like.

You are from Aberdeen, yes? Its a bit of a kip. What advantages did Aberdeen gain when it became multiculti?

True, MC, true.

RN, that's right. Well, only a select few really benefit and they are those in the oil&gas industry, Aberdeen being the capital of Europe in that area. Others benefit from the way local communities are set up and do a roaring trade. I'm talking here about Chinese and Indian restaurants primarily.

I wouldn't say foreigners are that welcome here, on balance. What really makes me laugh about that is that many Poles seem completely fed up with one another. I know many foreigners with charisma that could really enhance their lives. Many Poles are drawn to them like magnets and are a breath of fresh air.

No, they are hunted. There are always wanted posters on criminal foreigners everywhere every time!

I am always welcome in Poland as a true slavophile.Poles can sense that who likes them and who does not.
Seanus 15 | 19,742    
13 May 2010  #167
And some know who like them for all the wrong reasons ;)

Only this catholicism stucks sometimes in our throats,it is heavy for orthodox to digest it but still possible.Otherwise no problem.

Do they really understand the differences, southern? Let's face it, religious knowledge is hardly the most developed amongst your average Christians.

A wider variety of sheep and a better deal on Russian heroin.

My experience of living in Warsaw for 9 months has been that I have been made very welcome and have found the Polish to be a very friendly race. I guess that I might have had a different experience if I had been unfriendly towards them!

I've never had any problems in Poland and feel very safe when out and about - Compared to the UK (my home town is Liverpool) - it's positively placid - OK - a few drunks - but if Carlsberg did drunks....

I know what you mean. A agree and share in your enthusiasm. What makes Warsaw more placid than Liverpool for you?

In liverpool, when I am out, I am always looking over my shoulder for trouble, and it's never far away!

In Warsaw, even though folks are drunk, it feels safer! It's like no-one is trying to prove a point - do you know what I mean? I just enjoy myself more.

The other thing is the Guys! In the UK, guys don't show any respect towards you when you are with your woman, they still eye her up! WTF!

As much as I might find a woman attractive, if she's with a guy, I don't eyeball her - it's just manners!

As far as race is concerned, I find the population of Warsaw to be cosmopolitan, a bit like London!

it's the kind of place where everyone is welcome. Obviously, that does not apply to all parts of town!

Yeah, I got the same vibe from Warsaw (and other parts of Poland).

Here in USA, it's the same thing: people just all up in your business!

I know what you mean. I felt a similar way in Glasgow and in Midlands of England.

Is English widely spoken in the smaller villages? I am working on my Polish, but I still have a lot to learn. I'm interested in visiting the small villages where my ancestors come from - in areas around PoznaƄ and Plock. I'm not expecting to find anything about them, they left on the 1880s and I know very little - I just want to walk where they did.

I think that is so cool. I did the same a couple years back. It's awesome.

Revokenice, what do the black chappies or Arabs bring to the table?

Your thread is generation mummy’s boys, typical poles, do not want to move out of the home land and live on their own. Polish parents tolerate their grown-up children rely on their advice and support, proud with strong emotional bound with their adult children….

Your statement is generation gap with communism gap; society inability to communicate to their citizens, that different hill exists in the world.
Poland has the lowest percentage of minorities in European Union, why cause of racism, intolerance, hostile attitudes, and violent behaviour towards foreigners.
The black chappies and Arabs work in Poland and paid tax to polish government; do not paid tax to chappies and Arabs governments.

Unfortunately for your statement and for me (he's an embarrassed), Revokenice is not Polish.
But he is a Nouveau riche, racist, cocaine addict, sexually frustrated, lonely, lunatic who was born with a sliver spoon up one of his orifices.
