In Poland, People Are Roleplaying as Americans, Here Are The Best Photos

In Poland, there is a LARP group @4thofJulyLarp that roleplays as contemporary Americans. They just come together and show off their most American-ish outfits and act out various scenarios that they imagine would happen in the USA. It’s brilliant. Real Americans, please let us know in the comments if they got it right!

  1. they’re pretty accurate, except for the spelling. US citizens have a distinct inability to spell correctly and couldn’t care less about it.

  2. Every redneck stereotype. There’s a whole second country here though, and none of these photos looks like that group.

  3. I’d like to think that the lack of anyone non-white in this is an additional element as a dystopian look at the American ideal.

  4. You know, that because Poland did not have slaves and collonies and thanks to german death capms Polish people are almost all white? I think it was hard to find someone with darker skin tone in Poland who wants to do larp. And looking someone and hiring them only to show that American Police arrest only dark skin people- that would be racist.

  5. When did stereotypes become funny, or okay? I don’t know anybody like this, and I’ve lived in America my entire life.

  6. The only thing missing was a guy carrying 12 guns “just cause” looking at an elementary school thinking about making it a statistic

  7. We used to have a tradition of Polish jokes here in America too. They were pretty funny but have gone out of style. We should bring them back and have a festival like this — stereotypes of what Polish people look like from an American perspective…

    60% True, sad but true
    I like the one with the guy with the black eye. That is true.

  9. This looks way too clean, the people are way too pale and thin and not nearly covered in enough tattoos. Or mud, for that matter. Yes, I know Poles are White, but I’m saying the lack of any sort of tan is a dead giveaway that something is wrong. Otherwise, this almost does look like a family photo album from the country regions around South Bend or Warsaw, Indiana.

    Non-Whites tend to stick to cities when it comes to the rural parts of Indiana. I’m sure it tends to be that way in most places in the Northern US.

  10. Uma-
    The Polish jokes were used by the Nazi propaganda machine before WWII to dehumanize the Poles so the regular German citizen wouldn’t feel bad about the Poles’ eventual liquidation. The same jokes were just reused anti-semitic propaganda from long before the 1930’s. America has always been anti immigrant, so we picked up on the jokes and thought they were funny and true.

  11. Finding all the anti-Polish mfs and racists in here. Ya’ll just mad that they’re RIGHT.
