Some Poles countered the attacks with slogans of "Polish and Proud" however many Polish Americans denied or minimized attachments to their ethnicity out of shame and embarrassment.
With the election of Karol Wojtyla as pope and the defiant stand of Lech Walesa and Solidarity against the Soviet Union, the "dumb Polak" stereotype lost most of its plausibility in the minds of the public, however, even in this day and age of zero-tolerance and diversity, the degrading cliche still lingers.
What's most amazing is that Polish American academia has not yet bothered to address the "Polish Joke" phenomenon in any substantial way. You will not find a single, decent book on the the subject.
