but can't say they're Polish or Eastern European or gypsies or whatever


The ones I have seen in the North West are from Romania. They hold up photographs of their starving children back home. They always try to shake your hand and then won't let go. The ones I've seen seem to sell used copies of the 'Big Issue'.

I really cannot believe any polish person would ever do this. They would prefer to work very hard at anything rather than beg from anyone.

I have blue eyes ,lol........

Yes, I've read it................And ?? Your point is what exactly ?

It doesn't say they are beggars. I say again, Polish people will work hard and long hours to earn a living rather than beg.

I know, trust me..........

Now, next subject.

Ha ha!! I was in France in La Rochelle recently on holiday and it is a nice town with a lot of history. I thought that it was strange as I had not seen any homeless people until I walked in to the centre of town and there, by the main statue, was a group of young men who looked homeless with big dogs twice the size that they were. One young lad had a huge dog to keep and feed and I mean HUGE!! As I passed by I could hear them talking and the first word I heard was the Polish word 'kurwa' and I realized that already I was once more back home!!

Yes, all Poles are blue-eyed & blond, except for those who are redheads, brunettes or
bald or who have brown or hazel eyes...some are also albinos, but a small percentage.

Most of my wife's family have brown eyes but my wife's eyes are blue.

there are many, many many different tribes of Poles including Mazurians, Polans, Silesians, Warmiaks, Pomeranians, Kashubians, Slovincians, Kociewiacy, Borowiacy, Bieżuńczanie, Bobrzanie and many, many others. I'm the first non-100% Polish member on my mom's side of the family wherein everyone has blue or brown eyes (mom-blue, aunt-blue, grandpa-blue, grandma-blue), though my great grandfather had hazel eyes with an orange band around the center. He said that some Poles from Krakow have this orange band and that while it's not only limited to the Polish, it's far more common in a tribe of Poles decent from the Krakow region.

Similarly, post WWI, there are 3 major groups of Poles living in Poland: The blonde-haired, blue-eyed members of the nothern areas where the majority of the population was of German decent (Prussian decent, to be more accurate); the predominately more Russian Poles who usually occupied the eastern parts of Poland that bordered Russia, as well as the southeastern-most parts of the country and lastly, the Poles of Austrian decent, which I am. My neighbor, 7 years ago was named Nowakowski and he was a Russian Pole with dark hazel eyes and "mousey" brown hair. He, his father and his mother had the same hair and dark hazel eyes while his brother had brown hair and dark, almost purple, blue eyes.

I've met some Poles with blonde hair and blue eyes, but they usually have English or German parents as well so I'm really not sure what the ratio is between non-Germanic Poles and b-hair/b-eyes

I'm a Polish lady who's blue-eyed and blonde. I don't consider these features to be undesirable.

Many of my ancestors both male and female, had much darker features.

I'm not sure how true all that is, that you have written up there ? I speak as a blue eyed British born, with both parents Polish,a person who has absolutely no English or German genes..........so the theory doesn't work for any of my family members, lol.......

You're mostly right, Tornado1984.

What about very dark hair and blue eyes?
Or blonde hair and brown eyes?

I was just thinking of the other blonde/blue combinations we find in the world.
I prefer dark hair and dark eyes, but then you never know what hair or eyes you might happen to find.

Funny because i used to prefer blondes when i was just a spring chick out of the nest but over the past few years i have made u turn in this department of my life, strange because i never really thought about why before but this conversation has made me think about it. Its strange!!!

All the poles that i know are blonde with blue eyes.


I wonder if he's found any yet.

Perhaps a better question would be:
'How many Polish people are ginger?'
There are supposed to be a lot of redheads in Ireland, and also in the Udmurtia, a small republic in Russia.
I've known German and French gingers, and a Finnish girl who may have been a bit ginger.

It was a silly question. Let's have more silly answers.
