I think anti-americanism is more of an international thing, and to some extent it is warranted. Personally I just think they're jealous of our accents :D

Best Answer

That's what I think. Especially us Californians who speak the least like them! lol

Best Answer

Depends on whether you're talking about national stereotypes or not ... there's plenty to dislike about all stereotypes, whether you're meaning American, British, Irish, Australian, French ... or whatever. Perhaps the Brits give an impression of looking down on everyone who's not British ... perhaps there's a bit of jealousy there with the Americans ... because the Brits feel the Americans came from them in some ways (Pilgrim Fathers and the language and so on) ... and took the template and made something new, fresh and original from it ... and became the world power in place of what Britain used to be. On an individual level I don't think the Brits necessarily do ... personally I've had many many American friends over the years and loved them all ... but that's regardless of nationality.

What do you think about the theory that Americans never take note of what the rest of the world thinks about them?

Best Answer

I say it's true. Which is why America is ignorant on how our foreign policies will have a major impact on us here. Actually, already have.
