Dear Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to retire our beloved Forum Detroit. It has served the Polonia Detroit for over 10 years, and was a source of joy for many. However, after many months of inactivity, the time has come to bid it farewell.

Deepest and warmest thanks to all those who contributed to Forum discussions over the years, either by sharing their thoughts or reading those of others. Your presence and participation served as a building block of this online polish community.

Polish Consulate General in Chicago intevenes against an offensive fil

Polish Consulate General in Chicago intevenes against an offensive film
The Polish Consulate General in Chicago requested on Friday, February 15, that YouTube remove a short film that contains very offensive remarks regarding the Polish community of Hamtramck, Michigan.
Please find below the original letter requesting YouTube to remove the offensive film:

"Dear YouTube Administrator,

I need to draw your attention to the “Pure Michigan: Fat Tuesday” film by John Kerfoot, published by on February 11th 2013 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fss2mq5L … ata_player). The film contains offensive remarks regarding the Polish community of Hamtramck, Michigan.  The expressions used in the film such as “On that day, everybody is Polish, which means they are all fat and stupid” are derogatory and promote hatred against members of the Polish ethnic minority.
Also, the author of the “Pure Michigan: Fat Tuesday” material uses the word “Polack”, which in contemporary English is a derogatory reference to a person of Polish descent. In the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English the word is defined as: “AmE taboo a very offensive word for someone from Poland”.
In YouTube Community Guidelines, one can find the following point: “We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. But we don't permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity).”
The above mentioned “Pure Michigan: Fat Tuesday” material is a clear example of attacking a group based on race or ethnic origin, that violates the Community Guidelines

Please, remove the film.

Sincerely,

Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Chicago

CC:
Mr. Frank Spula, President Polish American Congress
Mr. Mariusz Szajnert, President Polish American Congress Michigan Division
Mr. Thaddeus Radzilowski, President Piast Institute"

Re: Polish Consulate General in Chicago intevenes against an offensive fil

I just wonder if John Kerfoot knows how many calories are in american donut. Just send him to Poland to try a real "paczek" and let him compare polish street to american street in the context of looks he is talking about. If it happens to smartness versus stupidity he should watch Jay Leno on the streets asking Americans basic questions. He then might correct his views.

Nie bardzo rozumiem dlaczego wysłano CC do "prezesaa Szajnerta", który wydaje się być "absentee president". Wysłałem do KPA i na jego prywatny (wielokrotnie upubliczniany na antenie) adres mejlowy. Odpowiedzi nie mam do dzisiaj.

Ostra satyra i tyle. Tylko od ciebie zależy czy będziesz "fat & stupid" i "Polack".

Dzięki Look.
Słyszałem o tym incydencie zaraz przed odlotem do Polski.
Tego typu glupoty będą się od czasu do czasu zdarzały i wymagają stanowczej reakcji całej Plonii jak też polonijnych organizacji (ciekaw jestem czy nasz najlepszy oddział KPA zabrał głos?). Powinniśmy podziękować p. Konsul via e-mail lub telefonicznie.
