There is nothing more precious then to see a little old poor Polish villager smiling for the camera knowing what a hard life they
have endured yet still are smiling.

Well said Johnny. In the words of Smokey Robinson 'I Second That Emotion'.

lderly hell, how about when you fell in the crap bowl in the bar and wallowed in secretion ?
Whatever possessed you to come on here and post to belittle the elderly Polish people ?

Spot on. That generation survived a lot, and if Pigsy thinks they wash a little less than he'd like (this from a guy from India!) remember that their tiny old age pensions have to stretch a long way, hot water bills are a burden for many and elderly people's senses (including the olfactory one) aren't as sharp as when they were young.

Our neighbour has just had her first bathroom and toilet installed. She's 93.

I'm from the South and I would never go to Africa, my daddy would just about have a heart attack.
I couldn't imagine a bigger, smellier cesspool than Africa.

Where do you keep your Confederate flag? And if you didn't know it the the "South" in America is full of directly imported Africans, so you are already there. Did your daddy own a plantation? Me think you are a "Troll" looking for a reaction, someone on this forum can't be this close minded or be real.

Hello everyone,

I am a first generation Pole in Connecticut, so I have something to say about this. Yes, Americans often seem to think of some Poles as being smelly, but ultimately this is not something that Poles need be ashamed of; deodorant is a very artificial substance, its not natural.

It was actually german immigrants in america that created deoderant, selling it as something that was needed, when of course it wasn't necessary.

Poles are light years ahead of americans when it comes to knowing history; we know this historical fact, and americans don't.

It is the duty of Polish Patriots everywhere to NOT use some german invention that could possibly give you cancer that our Slavic ancestors never knew, nor needed.

I, for one, refuse to use this modern artificial substance under my arms.

The natural scent should serve as a Polish in-group indicator and as a source of pride for being Polish, american sensibilities be damned.

There is extensive research on the subject of using deodorants and in fact there is evidence that they are partly responsible for breast cancer in women.

its not about deodorant ,even if you wash yourself with only water everyday and without using soap ,you shouldnt be smelly.to me if somebody smells so much in a point that hurts others around ,thats pure selfishness. I've seen it in Poland unfortunately alot and now i stop using public transport because of it .even poor people have access to water in Poland.dont get over protective ....be logical fui im not English or American .every country has also hood things to offer and i know Poland has also amazing bright people what you can always count on them .

The reason is that Poles are too busy - they work long hours and come back home in the evening after a hard day. It is natural that they aren`t too fresh during the day if they have no access to washing facilities. To avoid such situations, I always carry a small towel, soap and deodorant in my school bag. I also carry a replacement shirt and underwear just in case.

Mate, a few stinky people on the tram or spice heads and crack rats polluting the main streets. Look at Downtown LA for e.g.
