One of the most abused nationalities..... | Comment 37 of 40 |

...were the poor Vandals, a Germanic tribe of the Roman Empire. I am sure they were no worse than any other of the barbarians. But "vandal" is used to denote any mindlessly destructive person, and to "vandalize" means to deface and destroy.

So now we're up to three: Polish, Scotch and Vandals.....
