Stupid Pole. You Don't Belong Here. Go Back to Your Country: RIP Dagmara Prybysz, 16
Dagmara Prybysz, 16, evidently hanged herself after being bullied at her British school. She was called a "Stupid Pole," told she did not belong, and told to leave. Her family had arrived in Britain nine years earlier.
She stood up for another child, also Polish, who was also being bullied.
People often say my book Bieganski the Brute Polak Stereotype is unnecessary because there are no stereotypes of Poles and there is no such thing as anti Polish sentiment.
"Stupid Pole" is a persistent anti Polish meme.
Polonia, please buy and read Bieganski. Please invite me to speak to your school or group. If you'd like a Polish language version, email me. I can send you a copy.
