why is it that certain people want to put us down all the time???? i dont get it. why do people who are foreign to us want to come over here to get an education, jobs, homes, etc if we are SOOOO bad????? you'd think think that they wouldnt want to set foot on OUR soil if they really believed that. im sick of seeing America this, and America that. How would they like it if we start calling out their countries and looking at all the bad stuff that goes on there and not any of the good??????

Success causes resentment in unsuccessful people. Class envy is a reality of life .. the "have nots" envy the "haves". What we have to do is ignore the critics, help those we can, and keep focused in living our own life the best we can in spite of those who envy us.

Yeah, I struggle not think, hey, if you don't like it here, get out! And that includes Americans born here, not just foreigners. OK, you want to complain a little, that is your right, but if you are going to go to extremes, then it's time to say bye-bye. There are plenty of persecuted people who would love to be in here in your place!

It is a jealousy issue as they want what we get because of our birth in this country they really dont understand we are people just like them

yep you are exactly right. we are all just alike, but because our skin is different, our language is different, our country is prosperous, we are hated on. thats okay though, im PROUD of who i am and if they cant proud of who they are, then thats their problem.

I wonder the same thing myself. Especially the people who are here using our taxes to pay for their free ride. They are the ones bragging about how great their country is too!I always think wow, if its so great why are you here. LOL

I think your opinion is too narrow? Maybe the people who has immigrated to USA made a greater contribution then you.

No, i dont think all Americans are bad.. If all of you are really bad, why still there are lots of people who wanted to go in your country and get a job, education and homes.. And most of Asian women really wanted to marry an American guys, because they found them nice, sweet, and caring. There are some Americans are bad but not all. That's what we have also here in our country, some are bad and there are also good people.

Well, I don't think it is just people that come over here that say bad stuff about us. I think there are a lot of people all over the world that do. I personally think that a lot of it is because our rich people think that America is better than any other country. They are the only ones who can afford to travel all over the world, but they don't bother to learn anything about anywhere else first, so everyone else gets the impression that none of us know anything. They are also loud, obnoxious, and rude. So that is what people remember, instead of the ones who actually do know what is going on. It really drives me crazy, too. I'm sick of everyone saying we don't care about anyone outside of our country, too. We donate millions every year to charities outside of our country. And I'm talking about us as individuals, on top of what our tax dollars do. But too many people think that everyone in America has a brand new house, with two brand new cars in the driveway, and a house full of state of the art electronics. Because those are the people they've met.
