I can only concur with Pawian. When last in the Polonia Bookstore aka Ksiegarnia Polska in Greenpoint, a mere month or so pre-Covid, the lady behind the register kept glancing at me as though I were a common thief. I greeted her in Polish, conducted the purchase transaction solely in Polish, yet nothing changed her suspicious behavior.

That is why I avoid them. When I can't, it's English only.

Good luck finding many, that is, who would freely admit they speak it! A clannish bunch I must say.

Just an afterthought, people. Went on a Skype call with my Polish acqaintance here in Fort Lee not long after the virus broke, and we were on face time with her fiancee at an outdoor venue in the center of Gdansk. The casual passers by looked seemingly diverse to me. Noticed a number of blacks blending easily with the crowd:-)

CzarDaniel -nunczka was being racist, but that seems to have been lost on you. He is saying that Black people cannot speak correctly and ate uneducated so you should remain in the uSA and teach them instead. This is why I voted brexit - Fed up of racist Poles.

.. and "are" not are uneducated... typo.

Why are you so frigging selfish??? Instead of going to the UK and staying there, those racists will remain in Poland and spread their stupid views. You are even a bigger racist than they are. Shame on you, egoistic xenophobe!

And it was going so nicely - all petty rascals and jobless losers from my housing estate vanished one by one and gradually moved to the UK. Now we will have to deal with them again.

Shame, shame on you, Brits. You have disappointed me greatly.

She was probably wondering, why this old man is speaking broken Polish to me? When its clearly not your native language and youre in NJ not Krakow..lol

You do know Polish ppl do notice that you have an accent? You probably scared her, " why's this guy trying to speak to me"? hahaha Happy New Year Lyzko!!

Its is strange though??? When I speak Polish to girls they smile and say its cute as I botch their language up:) Im sticking with the old man theory...

Nawzajemnie, Joker LOL You (conveniently) missed my point. A Frenchman, Italian, Swede, even a German, in all likelihood wouldn't have eyed me with such mistrust. In addition, the woman was practically my age:-) Furthermore, 5O+ is scarcely that "over the hill". Finally, in what language, pray, ought I have entrusted an involved transaction anyway? She dealt almost exclusively with Polish clients to boot.
