Since visiting Canada people keep telling me Americans are stupid. I have tried to defend them.

I opened my email to this link though.......

Miami Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder has admitted not knowing people speak English in London.

The NFL player might want to check a map before he gets on board a plane for Sunday's prestige game against the New York Giants at Wembley Stadium.

Crowder, who comes from Atlanta in Georgia, may be praised on the field, but confessed geography was not his strong point.

He admitted he did not know until now where London was - or that Londoners spoke English.

I love those british shows where someone asks Americans simple questions and they don't know the answer. Questions like, "when was 9/11" or "Who is the Vice President."

However, no one with a mic from Britain ever asks me any questions. Saddens me because I would like to answer their stupid questions and then ask them questions that they should know that they probably don't then laugh at them for being idiots.

Also,


Schecter, since this bored poster, Dexter_Morgan, keeps making fun of you, why have you not put him on ignore? You put me on ignore when I was just teasing you and told you that I was teasing you so why would you not put this guy on ignore if he is obviously "bustin' your balls"? Masochism? Or do you actually enjoy his posts? Just curious.

If football players intelligence were typical for Americans, we would have all committed suicide long ago.

a man who has devoted his entire life...jr. high school, high school, college, occupation to playing a game requiring him to be hit repeatedly and use his own body as a projectile to hit others repeatedly does not have the intelligence of the typical 10 year old.......no matter the country they are from. I love watching football......NCAA preferably but whatever games are on tv Sunday and Monday in NFL I watch but c'mon, although we love to watch them play their game and cheer them on..........nobody believes these men to be smarter than the average chimpanzee.

It's my fault, I didn't use proper grammar. I put "Yarp" in bold for emphasis instead of putting a comma and speech marks.

I don't mean to upset him. He seems, as another poster pointed out, obsessed by people. I tried using the mods to dal with him. They seemed retiscent so I kind of gave as good as I got. Maybe i've overdone it. I think the guy is full of anger. I hope he gets better.

yes He has indeed snapped. Distubing. I would tell him to relax, but he'd only feel I was getting at himerm. Poor guy. sad

Actually, I think the most ignorant of people, even moreso than the Americans, are the Japanese. Lovely, wonderful people, really, but come on... When you make a successful scam off of people by marketting sheep as poodles, there's something wrong. Not even an American would fall for that.

This was not what I was referring to but it is a much longer video that gets the point across.

Also, not everyone is going to know about other countries unless they study them or follow politics. Why does it matter if the people in the United States know who John Howard is? Other than a coalition of forces in Iraq, what significant things are occurring between the USA and Australia that warrant the average American Citizen to follow Australian politics?

I can understand other countries needing to know about the US government because the US is the most powerful country in the world and has a major influence on the entire world with its foreign polices and aid. That is not arrogance, that is fact.

What about me?

Well, I know about other countries in this manner only because I am a nerd and I actually enjoy studying these things.

I really really want to go to Sydney and interview random people on the street with questions similar to what was asked by that man from Australia. I would love to go to London and do the same thing. If I can ever find the time to do something like that and actually get the funds to make those trips, rest assured, I would post the video on youtube and on here.

Also, the phrase "Axis of Evil" shouldn't really be known to anyone considering that it is a stupid phrase that doesn't make sense anyway. Those three countries do not have a coalition between each other to warrant the use of the word "Axis". The phrase should be more like, "3 countries that the Bush Administration doesn't like very much." I feel embarrassed that my President would ignorantly use a phrase like that.

It is just not some of the americans that are stupid there are some from other countrys too.But because of the war alot of the countrys hate us so calling us stupid is there way of saying so.jm wink

A typical American is not a stupid NFL player.

And when you say "American", I assume you are aiming at the United States OF America. If you were talking about America in general, you'd be talking about North America (which includes Canada), Central America, and South America.

It is so ridiculous, people taking shots at the US all the time. There are millions living here in the United States, and not all of us are idiots. The people get blamed for their president's idiotic ideas, and actions, and it's not fair. Stupid things happen here, it's true, but why do people think they only happen here?

So they aren't called South America, North America, and Central America? Please inform me of their new names then.

Originally posted by SelphieT

Yes, they would be referred to as the "Americas", 500 years ago when they were named.

however, people from those parts are no longer referred to as "American", as 500 years of history has redefined the term.

To put it bluntly, while you may have some academic merit to your point based on the origins of the word, if people from Canada are "Americans" and Americans are "Americans", though not the same "Americans", the term American is useless and we would end up using terms to define Canadians and Americans anyways.

The meaning of terms, especially those relating to geopolitical issues, change constantly. Do you know who the first Aryans were?

Bicnarok

backdoorman
What? If Americans (as they probably should) invented an original term for themselves instead of taking that of the whole continent's, the term "American" would still be quite useful.

If you think it is useful to lump the entirety of North and South America into one mass of geography or people...

But ya, if the term hadn't changed in its usage it would still mean the same thing it had previously...

backdoorman
Good thing I never said it would be, however, North and South America are indeed one mass of geography.

inimalist
Originally posted by backdoorman

so is asia and europe. We should then use a term to classify all people from the Chinese to the Portugese?

Never have I argued that the Americas don't exist, just simply that to classify people from Canada, Mexico, Chile, Paraguay, Peru, etc, as one people, ie "Americans" is useless. Not to mention that the use of "American" to refer to people that are not born in the USA causes confusion given the modern use of the term "American", meaning that a new term to distinguish USA "Americans" from NA/SA "Americans" would have to be created anyways, again rendering the outdated use of the term useless.
