Seriously, people of non-american heritage we're not all like that. Many of us actually hate our president and wish he'd walk into oncoming traffic. WE also believe that this war with Iraq is pointless and want to put a stop to it. Also, most of the people I grew up with only ate shitty McDonald's because our parents were too poor to buy both good food AND the drugs of their choice. I hope someday that American POLITICS and some whacked-out-crazy assholes will realize that America isn't the best country in the world. Someday, I'll leave America to travel to the most beautiful and interesting countries and I hope that I won't be hated (or loved, eek!) for being American.
non-american: Stupid Americans!
me: W-why? *commence sadness and possible crying* Why can't we all just get along!

Eek! Don't hate me! I'm nice, really! I like kitties... and skittles.... I always try to remember to turn off the lights when I'm not using it and I hate littering and... um, DON'T HATE ME!!! Please.

This definition if for everybody who stereotypes America.

- Just because we have a high obesity rate does not mean every last single person is fat, I'd rather be fat than be starving , I think most normal people would agree

- We are not all stupid, yes there are stupid people but what country doesn't have stupid people, we have most of the elite universities in the world

- We aren't all ignorant, many of us have a desire to travel outside the U.S

- In school they teach us the metric system, and yes I know zero degrees celcius = 32 degrees faranheit

- Anybody who says America deserved 9/11 is heartless and evil, they were innocent people and had nothing to do with the goverment's action

- I know that American means anybody from North, South, or Central America but mainly it means somebody from the U.S because you don't refer to somebody from Brazil as a south american but just as Brazillian to make it more specific

- You can't just sterotype a whole nation and be correct, I could say that in England everyone has bad teeth and drinks tea but that is not true for everybody and it is ignorant which is exactly the same when you try to sterotype Americans

- Also the joke is on the people who are from different countries and sterotype us, I bet you thousands of people from your country come to ours so you are also making fun of your own people
Person A: Hahaha Americans are fat and stupid!

Person B: That is ignorant because American is not a race, Whites, blacks, Arabs, Hispanics, and others come to America so your making fun of your own people

People from America that are generally well-liked, easy going, and sometimes crazy (in a good way). Americans have the large scale on personality due to its diversity of culture and race in its population. On one hand, you have gays and lesbians participating in a gay pride parade, on the other, gays are being killed by others upon discovering their orientation. On one hand, you have "prides" (Black Pride), on the other, you have extreme-ists (KKK). One one hand, you have amazing college professors, on the other, you have the fat american kid that doesn't know shit.

Stereotypes:
-Americans are fat; Yeah, some are really fatasses, but many are really fit.
-American kids are rich and spoiled; Yeah, those that are expats in international schools and those in public schools can be real brats. But you probably are too, if you're encountering them and not the better ones.
-Americans are racist; Yeah, those trolls you see online, that white kid that picks on minorities, etc really need to be ball-smacked. But those are usually ignorant people from ages 10-25. Young, stupid, unsophisticated.

In general, they're pretty nice people. Respectable and reasonable, only a small percentage of the American population are douchebags.

This is not written by an american.
You racist shitfuckers at my school deserve to be castrated.

I should have given that Americans who found my wallet my week's pay.

People who are made fun of by british people for calling football soccer even though calling football soccer actually originated in England. Also made fun of for spelling''mum'' mom and brits say we cant use the letter u. If we put the letter U instead of O wed call it Eurupe.

Intelligent Hardworking American: Actually it was from Britain. Read this report if you dont beleive me. Brit. Go drink some tea and kill natives. How does it feel to be stereotyped?

An American is English, French, Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish,
Russian, Greek, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese,
Japanese, Australian, Iranian, Asian, Arab, Pakistani, or Afghan.
An American is Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, or Muslim. An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming
to speak for God.
An American is from the most prosperous land in the history of the world.
The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence,
which recognizes the God given right of each man and woman to the pursuit of
happiness.

An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other
nation in the world in their time of need. When Afghanistan was overrun by
the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to
enable the people to win back their country. As of the morning of September
11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in
Afghanistan. The best products, the best books, the best music, the best
food, the best athletes.
So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and every bloodthirsty tyrant in the
history of the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself.
Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They
are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom.

(Edited to fit in U.D.)
1.Americans aren't just from the United States of America

2. person1- where are you from
person 2- The United States
Person 1- so you are an ignorant prick
Person2- no, not at all

Many different people think of americans as fat, stupid, and oblivious to the real outside world. but arent we all people, but just living in a different place? i can safely say that not all americans are like that. alot of us care about other people and the enviroment. i really dont like the president, but can we help that the biggest state here is texas?
americans come in different colors shapes, sizes, and mindsets.
so please, before you judge us...
1) not all of us our egotistical jerks

2)were not all fat...many of the people I know are painfully thin.

3)I think that the reason people see americans as fat, stupid, rich, and totally impolite is becuase they met my brother.

The most generous, emphatic people on Earth.
And I'm English!
Just bought a £5 quick shop from my convenience store, an American was stood behind me. Based on true experience with Americans.

Checkout Clerk: Sorry, your Credit Card has been rejected.

Me:(Searching pockets, wallet, don't find any cash.) Well, I don't have any more cash on me.

American: Don't worry about it, I'll pay for ya'!
