Polack/American Polonia/Plastic Pole "culture"

The American Polonia ("Polacks") are exceptionally stupid, yes. It's like they've taken the worst of Polish stupidity and incorporated it into American stupidity - yielding a particular blend of stupidity that only American Polacks could have.

This is kind of funny, Scottish dude that hates the American Polonia LMAO. I have nothing bad to say about Scottish in the US. I've met quite a few so it must be just you.

One of my Scottish buddies told me that in Scotland you can get arrested for being drunk in possession of a cow and any man owning more than 12 sheep must prove that he is not a 'pimp', is that true?

You know exactly, no one can beat it because the USA is mostly populated by the American Germans :-)

I rather think they will have to learn english as the Germans did...

Our policy will change sooner or later and yes, they will have to learn English but for right now PennBoy is right, Spanish is becoming very "popular".

Never to often! ;)

You won't get a respectful job here unless you learn English.

Of course not but Mexicans are not really looking for respectful jobs.

Do you want to edit that.

This was something I noticed a lot in the states, the inability of your average punter to discriminate.

No one is discriminating here, it's just the way it is. Very few Mexicans have so called "respectful" jobs.

I'm fine with that, someone needs to flip burgers and cut my grass... They'll smarten up and learn eventually

I know they are not....all Spanish speakers must be Mexican:)

It's not a discrimination it's a free market, people do business here in English . When there is a need to do business in Spanish then that's the language we're going to speak. I don't see that happening any time soon though because Mexico is a sh1thole and there is nothing i want from there.

edit: other than tequila and beautiful Spanish chicks

No, it's just your interpretation but the truth is that most of them are Mexican.
"according to a 2007 census: 29,189,334 Mexicans are living in US, which represents 64.3% of Hispanic American population, Puerto Ricans are following Mexicans with 4,114,701 representing 9.1%, next are Cubans, Salvadoran, Dominican, and more.

OK, let me put it a different way.

Do you want to edit that.Meaning the quoted comment was stupid.

This was something I noticed a lot in the states, the inability of your average punter to discriminate.Meaning the inability of the average person in the US to distinguish (in this case) between Spanish speakers.

To Discriminate.

v.intr.

To make sensible decisions*; judge wisely.

Now you are totally missing the point.

The thread is about stereotypes and I suggest that in the US ethnicity is king. Several posters mentioned the same thing. In the course of the thread it has become apparent that ethnicity is not as important to Europeans as it is to Americans. It’s a good idea to read all of the thread and not just the last post.

There is no need to get defensive about one commonly used word.

I don't think that was ever a secret.
I'd have to think hard to remember an example of an official government form where they did not ask about ethnicity. Not that I saw all government forms in the US, but in all of 8 years I'm pretty sure I had to relevant boxes.

One of the first times I had to do it was actually kinda hilarious, though what I did was done in good faith. I went to a DMV office in NYC to register a car. The form asked "Are you a visible minority". I'm Polish, therefore I am a minority so I checked the box. The nice lady (of African descend) looked at me angrily and told me I was not a visible minority.

I explained my rationale: I am Polish (therefore a minority) and you can surely see me, so how am I not a visible minority?
Well, it didn't work so I guess I am an invisible minority.

I didn't see in that article where it said Boehner was of full German ancestry but he does appear to have a German name. But I don't mind taking your word for it that he's a full German ;)

Anyway even though I'm not of German ancestry, I wouldn't mind seeing more German Americans like Boehner in political office. If Boehner's influence on politics is seen as a German American influence on America, I wouldn't mind seeing more German American influence asserted in the US.

not as important to Europeans as it is to Americans.

so why don't you like unite for real over there and pick a language and create true states instead of those individual countries?

Also, you're saying that if a Polish person goes to Spain or vice versa, no one would notice or care?
I was in Spain last month and everyone was asking us if we were some rich Russians. Don't know why, apparently there is an influx of rich Russians in Madrid or something. One big happy EU family...

You're so plastic that it's not even funny.

We should not. We have nothing against them and it would be some collective punishment because one Scot is a jerk. Me no play that game.

I'm not sure about that but if then it's probably because we're facing more variety of different ethnic groups than you guys.

It's easy to get defensive on PF. Way too many insults around.

Official forms here (Ireland) ask for you ethnicity, one option is Irish, not surprisingly no one ticks that box.

Edit

Europeans like, like the individual country thing…for real.

Don’t confuse nationality with ethnicity.

You're so plastic that it's not even funny.

I'm all wood:)
