Blatent Racism

Blatent Racism on the forum really needs to be controlled.
It is a shame that some tend to attack non stop with little to back up the intelligent comments.

'Germans suck' comments !!

The forum is about Poland, although politics will always come into things surely racist comments should be refrained from.

Re: Blatent Racism

Reading through recent posts is someone using 'Michael Dabrowski's name?

It really is not like him to be so offensive, 'so what' comments on important news articles.

racist Comments everytime Hans posts.

Surely not the old 'I love you all' that we all remember.

Re: Blatent Racism

Dabrowski is old school. Cmon, leave him lone. Its not like there haven’t been legitimate anti-Polish comments here before…

I don’t think he means any harm.

Re: Blatent Racism

Michael Dabrowski has always had a problem with Germans or anybody reporting news items, which he probably sees as rasist. I see that he usually posts on an open forum for Americans where nothing other than Polish recipes and culture is discussed. Forget him! Besides his opinion is his opinion.

Let him say what he wants. Readers can decide for themselves on the validity of and intellect behind his comments .

Re: Blatent Racism

erm there are plenty of "Poles suck" type comments on here. Is that not racist too?

I think you are being rather selective in the political correctness Dajwid.

Michael is entitled to his opinion just as you are entitled to yours.

Re: Blatent Racism

I think nobody except for that Muslim visitor has ever said anything like 'Poles suck'. I certainly haven't. I aim to back opinions up with real-life examples or news reports. This is how it should be.

Discussing his opinions or comments is pointless in my view.

Re: Blatent Racism

Their opinion. Your Opinion. My opinion.

I suggest this whole thread be deleted.

Re: Blatent Racism

I agree with Hans for once!

Re: Blatent Racism

Suck, could have been a incorrect word, but I am upset with everything is better in Germany, and the Germans want to run everything.
Give the Polish, who are great people, a chance to make their own mistakes.
Yes, many Polish people are very unhappy with the Germans, this I found out on my last visit, that I spent a month in Poland.
I drive a German car, a Benz, and it is great, but others could be as good.

Re: Blatent Racism

Maybe it starts at the top. Politicians drive German cars, in the past they had Lancia 'work that out'?
Not many Poles buy Polish, sadly.

Re: Blatent Racism

Lancia = Fiat. Why would anyone want to drive that shit! Same kind as trash as Daewoo. Cheap rubbish for the tasteless masses.

Re: Blatent Racism

My son, and a good friend of mine is Poland has a Daewoo, and they are a good for the money car. You get what you pay for.

Re: Blatent Racism

I am thinking of changing my Polish surname by deed poll (my two sons' as well). My wife has retained her Irish surname and we're thinking of getting a name that we're ALL happy with.

Some of the current frontrunners are: Xerxes, Jor-El (Superman's original name, I believe), Zappa, Cetacean, Alcibiades, Ngorongoro, Slartibartfast.

Do you notice how we're trying to avoid any hint of the Slavic, the Jewish, the Arabic, the Anglo-Saxon, the Celtic, the Asian, the Teutonic?

Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
