WASHINGTON (AP) -- D.C. Councilmember Marion Barry says he misspoke when he referred to the Polish community with the disparaging term "Polacks."
Barry made the remark when he was meeting with Asian-Americans.

I’m Polish and I don’t mind being called a “Polack”....call me a “Russian” though, and you’ll have a fight on your hands.
DC councilman is one of the few jobs you can perform competently day in and day out while high on crack ... I wonder if the crackhead even knows what day it is most days ?
My 'local news' is on WUSA TV-9 and WTTG Fox-5 ... if I pick up a newspaper from the vending machine on my way to work, it's the Washington Times. I listen to 105.9 WMAL "Washington's Mall: Where Washington comes to talk".
A two-seat plane crashes in a polish cemetary - 487 bodies have been recovered...
On the other hand, Europe would not exist but for the Poles on 9/11.
“When growing up, and Polish jokes were the rage,...”
I’m guessing you also remember the barrage of Polish jokes when John Paul II was elected Pope. People that never told jokes in the office at all would seek me out to tell me the latest one they had heard. It never bothered me.
Your right....The American people whose ancestry from Poland are the weaklings....there fixed....feel better Mr. Offended? Sheesh. You are one of the biggest problems in America we have...people and their feeeeeeelings....grow up for goodness sakes.
I remember all the Polish jokes on “all in The Family”! Rob Reiner’s character, Meathead, even told a few:
Why are there so many flies in Poland? Because it’s against the law to kill the national bird...
The thing is “Stivic” is not a Polish name, sounds more Serbo-Croatian.
As marylander I always loved going to baltimore and getting a Pollack Johnny’s .
Damn I miss them.
The FBI paid for it too!
She offered him sex in exchange for puffing on a pipe.
I meant a real party ~ not a government financed dope festival.
Barry is one of the diverse individuals that are closely tied to the Memphis, Tennessee group, as are Van Jones, Harold Ford, Jr., and many others. Keep your eyes open and see the connections.
well I wonder what would happen if this here pollack “accidentally” called him a n*gg**..... would he accept my apology???
Inquiring minds want to know..
and it is not that we pollacks mind being called this, it is the major double standard involved here
I am half polish and my wife is half polish..
a half and a half make a whole..
my children are pure polish.. :)
"Bitch set me up."
So ... if some individual of your preferred sex offered you sexual favours in return for puffing on a crack pipe you would ... what? I trust that your answer would be "tell them to pound sand".
Marion "Mayor for Life" Barry sucked on the crack pipe. His entire political career has been marked by political corruption, socialism, administrative incompetence, drug abuse, racist accusations against his opponents, whining self-pity and petty crime. He has not accomplished ANYTHING of value in his entire professional life.
He is, as he should be, an object of derision. That his constituents continue to elect him is as damning of them as Fat Drunk Ted Kennedy's and KKK Bobby Byrd's constituents voting patterns were of them.
BTW, I had the pleasure of voting against Bobby "I won't serve with a negro" Byrd ... never was a DC resident, so couldn't vote against Snort Barry.
Every day is fry day when you’re all cracked up.
You’re probably right. I just Googled the name and most of the hits were to the characters on “All in the Family,” but there was a soccer player in Australia with that surname who has dual Australian and Croatian citizenship. Some surnames are found among both Croats and Serbs but I don’t know if this is one of them. There are also surnames ending in -ic among Slovenes (Louis Adamic, the Slovene-American writer and activist, being one example). I don’t know if there are any examples of Poles named Stivic outside of that TV show.
