Most of them were born in America which makes me feel extra proud as somebody who is a Polish-American.
Wouldn't it be better for them to come and help Poland rather than waving a flag once a year?
Nah. Too difficult.
Maybe they don't need it. It really isn't too difficult to get a polish passport.
If you can't be bothered to get the citizenship of Poland, you can't be Polish. It really is that simple - anyone who claims to be a proud Polish person would do anything to get the citizenship of their homeland. Heck, there are people in Belarus who are forcibly denied Polish citizenship - yet if they're willing to risk persecution just to hold the "Karta Polaka", what's stopping those Polish Americans?
Ah wait, it's just too damn difficult to get, isn't it?
Many would have a hard time finding scotland on a map or even name a single scottish city.
Many people here acknowledge their roots, no one has a problem with that - except you, a grumpy brit living in Poland who has never crossed the pond.
Never crossed the pond? Weird...could've sworn that I was at a Flames game once upon a time.
the main foreign language being spoken, in the center of Chicago near the Sears Tower, was POLISH.
Incidentally, as you don't speak Polish - how do you know it was Polish? To the untrained ear, Polish is pretty much the same as other Slavic languages.
