in favor of a "Fake" heritage called "American" what ever the f*ck that is.
I have Polish ancestors and hold a very Polish name.
Thing is...our family has been here 5 generations. Don't know a single word of Polish language or customs or even care for that matter. Born an American and 100 percent American. Nothing fake about it.
I refuse to be like other groups who feel they need to hyphen their identity.

I've heard the jokes all my life and found them amusing, and I also developed a thick skin unlike those other hyphened groups.
Being hyphenated is a great thing, why should we reject our true heritage's, in favor of American?

American isn't a real ethnic heritage, in fact it's an insult to ethnic heritage's, considering it assimilates them to a Capitalist junk culture like Walmart, McDonald's, Home Depot, Dollar General etc.
Not happening.
I mock blacks for the African-American crap.
They have as much of a clue of their African heritage as I do of Polish heritage.
They have nothing in common with their origins and neither do I.

Born in the USA, you are an American first.

Funny how the rest of the world copies our junk culture.

There are no Polish jokes

They are all true stories
So says the guy who complains about prejudices against minorities.

With Democrats like you promoting anti-Polish rhetoric, it's no wonder why since FDR Poles have increasingly become more Republican.
Did you hear about the Polak who broke his leg raking leaves?

He fell out of a tree

Jews are honest to God some of the most dumb people I've ever encountered.

Speaking of eye rolls.

I've heard many different theories, including Wisconsin Germans disparaged Poles as dumb, Poles were called as dumb, because they were good machinists, and people got jealous, to Hollywood, and the media promoting it.
to Nazi Germany promoting dumb Polak jokes.

One thing is true, I don't think such politically correct joke would be so for Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Muslims etc. etc.

Just look at how Papa John was treated for just saying the N word, not disparagingly, but just as a word that could not be said.
(Hardly offensive)
Especially in comparison to dumb Polak jokes.

It seems people think dumb Polak jokes are okay, because they're White Catholics.

Even though Poles were also murdered by multiple millions, in WW2, WW1, The Partitions of Poland, and the Deluge combined totals could really support that 8 + million Poles had been killed.

But, that doesn't matter, so long as they're getting back at Whitey oppressor, by lashing out at Polish people.
Blond jokes are the only ones the PC police allow us to use.

So not tolerant.
So why the need to create what comes across as a victimization thread? If you have no tolerance of others?
How is this any different than the blacks or Mexicans or any other number of groups complaining of jokes and stereotypes at their expense?
Jokes are just that...jokes.
If the listener is offended, that's on their thin skin.

The thread's clearly about the origins of the Polish joke, first, and foremost.

But, the Polish joke isn't based on fact, unlike my facts about various groups.

Ultimately, the point does stand, that Polish jokes are tolerated more readily promoted, and tolerated in our society, than would be against others.

Now, why is that?
