    To be frank, a lot of Eastern Europeans can be pretty racist, so it's definitely not even limited to Poland. Nationalism is rampant in Eastern Europe, and it will probably continue to get worse if the EU doesn't become more responsible with how they take in refugees.

    The reality is those refugees will not be any safer in a society so ready to lash out against them. And I'm not surprised to see this at all since I've been following far-right groups for awhile now. People seem to think you can call them villains and expect them to "die out" for the sake of progress and then they act all shocked when this is the response.

    it's not hte refugees who are being racist. an if youre saying that by existing they foster racism, that's like saying that being gay fosters homophobia. maybe it does, but it's the hatred that needs to be combated, not hte victims

    That's not what is being said, the way the EU has handled the refugee crisis has been appalling, we've seen mass sexual assaults in Cologne and across Germany. Hungary, Greece and Croatia, to name a few, have been put under horrendous pressure to cope with the constant influx of immigration. This does not look good, and will increase anti-immigration tendencies, for better or for worse, it's subjective and I'm not here to have an argument, just trying to be informative.

    I agree with this. And it's not limited just to Eastern Europe, but Central Europe as well. In Austria, Czech Republic, and even Switzerland you can run into some strong anti-refugee moods. And while I am strongly against all extremist opinions, I get the point of view of people who do not want to accept refugees (not saying I 100% agree with it)
    I think that the 'all welcome' system that for example Germany used is bad. If EU paid more attention to this crisis from the start, listened to all of its member states and made some compromises, then the Europe wouldn't be so divided like right now.


    And I'm just going to leave this here (as it doesn't apply only to the US) ...
