What I mean by this is that there’s some people out there who consider all Americans to be uncultured and uneducated and how all non-Americans are totally more sophisticated than anyone living in the U.S.

I honestly consider that pure bullcrap.

I can almost guarantee that there are some Brits and Canadians out there who are rude, uncultured, uneducated and immature (probably even more so than most Americans). And it’s honestly really racist to flat out say that all Americans are ****** and that all non-Americans are far more intelligent (like I said, nationality shouldn’t matter at all).

I’m just saying that people really shouldn’t try to generalize other groups of people. Like I said, there’s bad and ****** people everywhere.
