Do you think this is unique to just Polish
Americans? The entire country is made up of people with an identity crisis. The thing you gotta understand though is that people either don't care or have simply accepted it. At the end of the day, people tend to not give a damn if their parents came from pre-1945 Germany or not.
Italian Americans are even worse, pappy. They put flag stickers on their cars, wear Italian colored t-shirts and sweatshirts, they all dress the same, do their hair the same, say things like mootsarel, brazhoot, parmajohnie, goomba, and are convinced people speak this way in Italy......have you seen 'Jersey Shore'? Do you think any of those kids speak Italian or know the first thing about Italian history?
Then there's the whole latino population. Sure, some of them are 1st generation but you will see many kids who are clearly of latino decent and they either don't speak the language or are pathetic at it, yet proclaim to be pure latino to the bone and talk about the mother country.
Don't even get me started on black people in America being "African American".
It's non-stop dude and the poles in america, as far as being "plastic" is concerned, aren't even in the same ball park as the many other wannabe's. A country made entirely of immigrants built by immigrants and run by immigrants. It's just something you'll never understand. You came from a homogenous country and moved to yet another one, like most people on this forum.
Good Gawwwwd. Talk about desperately trying to make mountains out of molehills to bring divisions between Poles in Poland and their relatives outside of Poland.
not quite. the issue in the end is just his constant loathing of America, for whatever reason. these "plastic poles" reside in America, therefore, he's got a problem with them. It never ceases to amaze me how someone can hate a country so much, yet understand so little about it.
You've never been to the USA delph, which explains your ignorance towards it.....the same reason why your "plastic poles" have no concept of Poland.
