Thread Name: Do Americans know?
Subject: RE: Do Americans know?
Hi, Wolf - well, you bring up a good question. Yeah, I've heard stories of how people in just about every country a country hate Americans. Invariably, when I visit another country and take the time to talk with people, I find that the people are friendly and welcoming. Wherever I go, I get into fascinating discussions with people, and I always have a great time. I don't think people are prejudiced against Americans as individuals. They may not like Americans as group, and they may not like American political or business leaders - but I don't believe they are as prejudiced against American people as you might think.
The world over, most people are nice people. They just have to stop and take the time to get to know each other.
