LOL! Yes, fish are not all that bright.

There are lots of bad Polish humor out there which I shouldn't even be repeating. I remember one, "How do you know they invented the [vagina]?" "Who else would have built the 'candy stand' so close to the 's**t-house?'"

Its not Polish humor its anti-Polish humor.
So you like ethnic humor?
Why do black people smell like crap?
Because they have crap colored skin.
No, they smell like crap because racists like you throw so much crap on them.

You are obviously missed the word BAD. "Bad" as I used it, and "anti" mean the EXACT DAMN THING. That is why I used the word BAD, to show up front that it is anti. It is a shame that many good people who were less sensitive than you and more intelligent than you were killed by Hitler while you are here today. I used the word bad to stop your self-righteous tirade, but you play right into the stereotype of mental deficiency. The stereotypes must be true or you'd never get offended. We only react to what we know is true at some level.

Polish is not a race. There are only 3 races, Caucasian, African, and Asian. So you take a national stereotype and label and use it as an excuse to say something that is outright racist and much worse. Really, you must be every bit as racist as a slave owner if all it takes is a joke you are too stupid to understand to get you to saying actual racist things. If you were not a racist, you could never be provoked to use racism. Plenty of people have provoked me, and I have yet to kill. Why? Because I am not a murderer. If someone can be provoke to murder, then they were already murderers just looking for a convenient opportunity to murder.

I tried to reason with you, and then you lash out again, even after I said it was BAD humor to give you a heads up so you would know not to become crazy as you had, but I guess I need to put things in closed captioning for the mentally impaired too.

I am just glad you are not Black, gay, disabled, and Muslim, or you would never be able to survive as sensitive as you are. You'd be wanting to kill yourself after every normal interaction others try to have with you.

Why do you assume I am Black? That is not my real picture, and besides, she is Purple.

There is also a lot of "Black humor" out there.
Do you want to hear some ape jokes about black people?
What do you call an ape dressing like a human?
An African.
No hypocrite. I was merely documenting bigotry, not spreading it. People need to know what bigotry exists so they can avoid it. I just shared a classical example as a warning.

Actually, an ape dressing as a human is a cross-dresser. Hey, if I'm going to be accused of bigotry, I might as go all out and become a transphobe and a homophobe too.

Again, I am a Purplonian-American born on another planet with Purple skin. You don't know what my race is, and the pic is not me. Anyone who tells their true race online is stupid and deserves what they get. The whole purpose of the net is to be anonymous, and if you are in a marginalized group, you should want to stay anonymous, not give your bigots ammunition to hate you. Going online to be anonymous, and then calling yourself a targeted group is stupid, when everyone can be a part of the same group while online if they choose. But victims have to carry their victim act into the online world, since they think victimhood gives them power.

Really??

So when you say "Pollocks are known to do things backward" that's not because of the crap propaganda bigots like you throw on them??

So you can refer to Polish people with anti-Polish slurs like "Pollock/Polack" and make a Nazi like comment about them and that's OK???

I haven't refered to black people with the N-word but you have no problem using the P work with Polish people.

You Hypocrite!

Well you first talked about bad "Polish humor" and then proceeded to tell another joke against Polish people, thinking "its OK to tell the joke against Polish people SINCE you used the word BAD before it".

So OK....if I first talk about BAD Black humor, would it then be OK if I tell a Black joke afterwards?

Oh I see you have double standards.

So you call a Nazi stereotype about Polish people just as "a national stereotype and label"

and then when I tell some black jokes, they are "outright racist and much worse"??

What?????

So what your saying is we should be very very sensitive about jokes about black people but jokes about Polish people are fine with you because they are not at your expense.

So be nice to blacks but hey if you want to bash Polish people go right ahead.

So you get off on insult jokes about other people as long as your identity is not the target. Right??????

Do you know how hypocritical you sound???

You Hypocrite!
Polish is not a race, and I was not calling them a slur in the post you wrongly jumped on. I was not telling a joke against them, just documenting it because I took your side. I admitted I was wrong the first time, and you pretended I was alright with you.(One someone is alright with you, they are supposed to be alright with you forever, so you lied when you claimed to forgive me.)

Again, it is okay to be against a nation (its government and culture), but not okay to be against a physical race. Poles are just like other white people, and I never spoke against your Whiteness. Besides, we should be enemies anyways because I'm German. So I probably have Nazi ancestors.

Why do you think I am a hypocrite? You don't know my race. I could be as white as you, and I never went on about being Black and a victim, so I cannot be a hypocrite when I do something I never asked others not to do.

Your continued reactions and name-calling only show me my initial use of the term was correct. If you were not inferior, you would not choose to act this way, would you?

What do you mean? Its the other way around. Just by what I wrote in the first part of this thread, you would think you would have taken the hint about posting insults about others.

I even wished you a nice Thanksgiving and then AFTERWARDS you seemed to take delight in all the Polish bashing here and thought if you used the word BAD before another anti-Polish slur, that would then make it OK.

So with that logic, WHY are you getting so offended at jokes about black people being apes or blacks looking like crap?????????
Show me where I got offended at such jokes or where I even mentioned any race other than being a Purple space alien. You cannot see my emotions, and whether I am offended or not is not your business anyway. I simply reflected your racist jokes. After the crude joke at the top of the page I apologized for, I didn't tell any more. I merely documented the other one to show others what to avoid, and I made it clear by using the word bad.

What I say has nothing to do with what you say. Even if what I said was racist, it would be impossible for racist stuff to come out of your mouth unless you were a racist. A non-racist, when racism is direct against them, will never return it with racism no matter what. If they do, then they are an even bigger racist than the first.

Just like I've never never murder because I am not a murder, you would have never said anything racist if you were not a racist. People kill because they are murderers, people steal because they are thieves, and people say racist things because they are racists. They don't do such things because they are provoked, but because doing such things are their very nature. Saying racist things doesn't make you racist, but being a racist makes you say racist things. Everything comes out of the heart. A rapist rapes because he wants to rape, not because of what she wears nor when she is outside. A person who can be provoked to rape at all is a rapist, just like a person who can be provoked to say racist things is a racist.

WHO CARES if Polish are a race or not (although Hitler referred to the Polish people as the "Polish race"). If you insult Polish people you insult Polish people. So just because they are not a race that means its OK to say negative things about them??

It seemed like you were taking my side and then you reacted with another veiled insult against Polish people. You thought if you gave a "disclaimer" as these slurs being bad, it was then OK to say one.

So by that logic, would it be OK if I talk about BAD black humor and then tells some black jokes??????

Well I didn't say I forgive you per se, I just left it alone, wished you a nice Thanksgiving, assuming you weren't going to push these slurs anymore.

As for documenting things, would it be OK if I document things said about Black people? Do you get my point?

I never posted insults about others since the first. I didn't *tell* the joke, but merely documented it because I am on your side. When I was wrong I admitted it, but I haven't been wrong since then. I gave an example of a joke that should never be told and made it clear it was a mere example and not from me nor meant as such.

You have not been bashed. Each person should identify only by their name, never identify with any group. Anyone who identifies with a group deserves whatever they get. You can take off your chosen Polish victim identity at any time and just be a normal human being. If you are in America, then remember where you are now and act accordingly.

I didn't use any other Polish slurs, only the one, and used none since then.

There is obviously some truth to the stereotypes or you would not react as you are at all. You are obviously too stupid to overlook it, take it in stride, and do the correct thing of keeping silent. Telling others how offended you are, being over-sensitive, and wearing stuff on your sleeve are all marks of immaturity, as are your retaliation attempts. You came in here looking for a fight, and you can have one if you want.

You must not have meant the greeting, or you would have never jumped on me again after that if you really meant it. But you lied.

That is even worse than what we've been saying here. I admit I laughed, but I was laughing at the "inventions," not who the speaker was crediting for them. I don't blame the angry posters at the bottom saying to report it as it violates Google's hate speech rule.

It is funny!
It was made by Polish people so....???
That guy may have been offended by what was said about polacks but he went overboard. He could have just complained but then to retaliate like that. Whoa! What he said was far worse than anything you said.
