White minority does exist in America

Gregory,
Philadelpha, PA.

As a Polish immigrant in America I have been faced with many challenges, but one that has always seemed most challenging and bizarre was issue of being white and being treated by others as a minority. As long as people didn’t hear my accent I would fit in, but once my identity was established I would be treated differently. It seemed pretty obvious to me from day one that attitude to white people with an accent is closely related to feelings many minorities experience.
