A conversation with John Godson, Poland's first black member of parliament.
FILIP MAZURCZAK: Are the Poles a tolerant nation?
JOHN GODSON: I believe that the Poles are very tolerant. Situations of racism are marginal. In Poland we have what is called low intercultural competences, which is not the same thing as racism. Racism is when people who are informed and have contact with other cultures believe that their culture and their race is superior. But what we have in Poland results more from a lack of knowledge and the fact that post-Second World War Poland is a very homogeneous society. Communism made it difficult for Poles to travel abroad. But since Poland is in the European Union and the Schengen Zone, this is changing. We see that very slowly the intercultural competences of Poles are increasing.
