    Racism in Poland - Some inside info for people of dark or black skin colour

    Advertisements



    I have lived in Poland for a couple of years now and I have travelled all around the country, I have a dark complexion and i have found that the problem of racism is not uniform across the whole country. Below I will list all the polish cities where medical schools are located in 4 different category groups based on the level of racism problem I believe is there for people of dark or black skin colour. By the way, I havenít seen or heard of Asians(Far Eastern Asians - eg: Taiwanese, Malaysians etc.) have any problems with racism anywhere in Poland.

    No Racism Problem:
    - Warsaw
    - Krakow (Jagiellonian Medical School)

    Little Racism Problem:
    -Poznan
    -Gdansk

    Problem with Racism:
    -Wroclaw
    -Szczecin (Pomeranian Medical School)
    -Katowice (Medical School of Silesia)


    Big Problem with Racism:
    -Lodz
    -Bialystok
    -Lublin

    Umm, lets just say that if I had the choice I would pick Krakow over Poznan but I would pick Warsaw over both of them. And further in terms of the racism issue against brown or black skined people, I would pick the Czech Republic or Romania over all of them.

    I've never really seen racism (in poland, in general), but I'm only there 3 months a year.

    janedoe hi, I cant know the racism part, but during my research about the schools in the region, I checked the administrative/academical staff pages of the schools as well and I saw both Warsaw's and Lodz's admin. pictures.. the faces are telling everything, believe me.. if you can read faces a little bit, you can tell the quality difference. They were like at the opposite ends by that regard..

    I crossed over Lodz because of those faces.. not only, but the first reason was this.

    edit: I mistook Lodz for Lublin.. its not Lodz, its Lublin:

    You have to keep in mind that Poland didn't see a lot of "foreigners" because of communism. A lot of the babyboomers/old people are still not used to seeing a person of color. Especially in cities such as Lodz since it doesn't see many tourists.

    wow, if you can read racism just from a professional portrait, you deserve a medal.

    Uniwersytet Medyczny w Lublinie


    btw, your snapshot judgement isnt racist at all, I promise. /sarcasm


    I personal know two of those doc's, and they have been extremely helpful in my education while i was in Poland.
