I will never forget how shocked I was when I discovered that anti-Semitism was the open norm in Poland
It's not. If you only hang out with semi-literate kibice z bloku, then maybe; but in general, it's grossly inaccurate to claim that it's "the open norm". Poles are not as PC as people in the UK are (thank heavens), so they will openly discuss ethnic/racial groups they object to or dislike, but there is little open anti-Semitism.
Amongst my family and family friends, no anti-Semitic views have ever been heard. However, many are very
open about what they think of South Asians, Blacks, Turks, Muslims in general, and of course Russians and Germans (though the latter two are more associated with older family members & friends). But Jews/Judaism? No. As I grew up with, and have been close to, Polish people for four decades, I think my opinions are valid and accurate.
know Polish guys really don't like Polish girls going off with ethnically-different guys in the UK ... especially if of a skin-colour not entirely white ... and there is a kind of international Polish sperm donor bank, but it is only open to those of 'pure' Polish origin ... (I know that's not exactly relevant, but it is quite an interesting little nugget of info, I think).
OK then... show me the ethnic group which likes
it when their women go off with foreigners? That's right... there isn't one! It's natural to want, and protect, your own. You can criticise Polish preferences all you like, but you won't hear of many Polish honour killings.
there is great loyalty to the Polish female among Polish guys, however much make-up and however orange she is. So long as she is thin, she is beautiful.
Sadly, there is some truth in this - many Polish women complain that they could never keep a Polish man if they get too fat (and "too fat" appears to mean UK Size 14 - I kid you not!). Fortunately, some of us despise that fake blachara type, and prefer the classier, natural (but arguably more average) woman ;) I for one will never be turned on by Botulinum toxin or silicone :D But am I loyal to Polish women? Damn right I am!
