So are you saying that the Asian guy born in Poland that PolAm references isn't Polish?
No I'm not saying that. I might not have made myself completely clear. I am in agreement with this statement:
Polish, in my opinion is the assimilation into Polish society and the acceptance of those traditions, language, and customs of the country.
Which contrasts with what Dirk was saying about citizenship determining Polishness. I am talking specifically about citizenship through descent here. By nationality law, yes, a PolAm is considered to be Polish. Yet, that person may never have set foot in Poland, doesn't know pierogi from pączki, and afaik, can vote in Polish elections! I am gobsmacked that a person gets the right to vote and help to decide the fate of Poles actually living in Poland, whilst never having lived there, all on the basis of ancestry.
