    Well I can't speak for every American nor would I want to, but I'd much rather see Polish immigrants come into the US than people from Mexico or other non European countries.

    Where did you get the idea Americans were anti-Polish?

    I am Irish-American and I like the Polish,
    I live in a area that has a large Polish community. .
    My doctor is from Poland.
    Maybe the problem is all the (unjustified) jokes
    that are made about the Poles,
    and this creates a negative image.

    A lot of Americans have German blood perhaps and so the ancient hatred got passed down ;p

    I don't know, I was raised to hate polaks for stealing German land, for invading Germany, for many many other issues and now I am going to marry one lol ... my daddy wasnt impressed.

    I too would like to hear where you heard Americans were anti-polish. It's not a problem in North Carolina. I'm not saying I would consider one either. I honestly could care less what country a neighbor is from, as long as they respect my country's laws, and customs.

    I do not hate Poles. I want to point out though that many of the joke, I believe are because of WWI and how Poland was using horses instead of vehicles. They were very industiralized and I think the jokes in the US just passed up to todays society.

    Lightbulb Indifference

    I think the general American attitude toward Poles is one of indifference--the main reason for this is that there just aren't many Polish Americans or Polish immigrants. There is only one well-known ethnic slur in America towards Poles, and that of course is 'Polak,' which is rarely spoken in this country, and when it is it is ususally in the company of the Polish-blooded and often in an affectionate/joking sense. And, I was informed several years ago by a sweet (female, and VERY beautiful) Polish-American-immigrant that even that term is actually not offensive to speakers of Polish (it merely means 'Polish man'). I would also agree that the primary source of anti-Polish sentiment in this country has probably been, especially in the past, from German-American circles...but even that has been no big deal. IMO, besides the general indifference, the attitudes are more often than not positive rather than negative.

    I have seen very little anti-polish sentiment in the zionist territories. What little I have seen has to do with Danzig, and other German land occupied by poland. Danzig after all IS german

    I guess it depends on where you live. Eastern Europeans in general are more common in the East and Midwest USA. The Central States, the South, and the Rockies are more of "old American stock."

    Here in Southeast Michigan Poles are a large community, no one sees them as foreign. Polish names are very common here, they are completely assimilated. The big grocery stores carry Polish food, there are a lot of cultural centers, churches, restaurants, etc. Same is definitely true for Chicago and other major cities of the Great Lakes region.
