Like I said earlier, learning a new language is a very useful tool so why do you care if it was forced upon you? You have gained something good. I
wish I had Polish forced upon me or I wouldn't have this problem of learning it now.
Well well well, so you DO learn Polish? Is it by neccesity or just because you want to know the language of your ancestors? Can you say something more
than that you love me?
I've talked to a fair share of Brits and many of them (mostly older people) speak very highly of Polish people thanks to the Battle of Britain where
we had more than lent a hand to the UK in their struggle against Goring's Luftwaffe. Some of them still remember the polish Government On Exile that
resided in London and they've often shown compassion towards our proud yet troubled history.
But many of the new generation neither care about that or treating immmigrants (especially Polish) well. Sometimes I trhink that the UK is a little
claustrophobic maybe, despite London being almost torn apart by minorities.
Sorry to say but the Indian nations were defeated, and were given reservation land which defines borders of their nations. It is important to preserve
the language and cultures within those borders, a shame if lost, but that's the responsibility of the keepers of the language and cultures. Across the
border is a different nation, made of people from around the world, but unified by a common language.
Dude, that's just outrageous. The Indians were ripped apart bu you great settlers just because you wanted more and more land. Ironically the US was
built by the people who forcefully removed Indians from their native land and caused great suffering to them. Say, the Indians killed a fair share of
your people in defence of their homeland. So what? Wouldn't you defend your homeas well? And now you, the conquerors who call themselves "free people"
and cxome from the "land of the free" speak about Indians as if they were cattle, left away to rot in their reservations. It's their land in the first
place, and if you've conquered them you either give them a chance to influence your culture as a way of showing respect towards this continent's real
natives, or you just wait for them to assimilate or die or both. Great ideology.
Just for comparison There are other dark skinned Indian people on the other side of the earth who were also conquered by the English. They are now
increasingly united by a common language, English. Their nation is rising, their incomes are rising, their skills are rising, and they're taking jobs
away from Americans. They don't whine about English, they celebrate it.
They do that not because they want it but because they have to do it if they want to make any difference. Truth is, they hate you and all of the white
conquerors as much as they did when you first sent your great barques, ships-of-the-line or whatever to gather them like apes and transport them to
the other colonies or later (when such expeditions were sent by the United States) to make them work as your slaves in the America: Home Of The White
That's equally fun and sadness in your post: You think that you know other cultures, other nations and that you give them happiness. You don't, face
A common language unites us to stand together. Languages divide, and we fall as a nation.
I think that this line speaks for itself, quite honestly it's a definition of semi-nazi "racial cleaniness" ideology. Where's that America that was
proud of its multi-national heritage? It's a short trip from such statements to Endlosung
, trust me.
