Yes MOST Americans are idiots. Weak minded sheep who follow what ever they are told. They think everyplace else in the world is a 3rd world country and every other people in the world are stupid....esp, if they don't speak English.

But the reality is most people in the world speak multiple languages EXCEPT stupid Americans and America is FAST becoming a 3rd world country.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Do you realize waht you are doing right now? You are stereotyping an entire people.
I'll have you know that many many Americans are open-minded people. Yes, there are those who stereotype others, but despite this we are a good people.
I'm also well-aware of the stereotypes put against Americans: that we are arrogant, fat, aggressive. stupid and of course, narrow-minded. Do you truely believe any of these things about us? Do you assume that I have any of these characteristics despite the fact that you never met me? If you do than I believe the thing for you to do is to 'remove the speck out of your own eye.'
We Americans really are a wonderful people. It's too bad you fail to see that and see the good in us, because I may very well see good in your people whoever they may be.

By saying that aren't yourself being narrow minded? Americans aren't stereotypical of everyone for anything, you may have seen in movies what you think is how americans act or maybe you live here and have encountered some people who are like that but the majority of us are open to many different cultures, but when we come across something thats morally not right, like the violation of human rights in places such as china or darfur, we begin to have a mental image of that place form and therefore we begin to not like that place so very much and push for political action to change that

You know, it's comments like those that get on my nerves. I'm going to rant, so brace yourselves;

You came up with one stereotype that I've never heard of: Chinese suck at English. And furthermore, isn't saying "Americans are narrow-minded" a stereotype in itself? Think before you put finger to keyboard.

Now to explain the misconception;

Fox news is the main central hive of bigotry, narrow-mindedness, jackass-ery, and douchebaggery. The strictly republican network spreads lies and viciousness about everyone who is a little different. For instance, they have been insulting and degrading and bringing down our current president - Barack Obama. They have called him Hitler, a communist, socialist(which doesn't make sense), and have accused him of planning out Death panels.

This is the brand of shitty people polluting our airwaves. Not all republicans are bad-most of them aren't. I'm just saying, they'll believe anything. And it's painting that image about America that I despise.

So think before you make a generalization. And it doesn't matter anyways--Everyone Generalizes about something.

Only dumbasses are believe stereotypes precisely. However, most stereotypes are true if you think of them as generalizations and not necessarily true for individuals.

Stereotypes exist because they are general monikers by which we label groups of people to simplify our lives. It is impossible to know each and every member of a particular group which is why stereotypes begin. Let's say for example that you meet one person from a particular background. Let's say you meet an intelligent African American. You may hypothesize that all African Americans are smart. The same applies to other skills and attributes for various peoples. It's not just Americans which stereotype. Everyone around the world use stereotypes in an attempt to understand the world. There is nothing wrong with stereotypes. They are just convenient labels for various groups.

I lived in America quite awhile to totally agree with you actually couldn't agree with you more! Not only narrow minded but also shallow!!!

This is a pretty vague & pointless question. Some events/people in the US are narrow and racist - the last lynching was only 20 years or so ago. But who honestly doesn't look to the US for some of the most progressive ideas in the world? And what is so great about anywhere else?

PS I am not from/in the US

Oh sweet hypocrisy. Most people everywhere are narrow-minded idiots, not just America.

People complain way too much about Americans. Honestly, I have tons of complaints about people of other nationalities but I don't care enough to let it bother me so I keep it to myself. People are annoying. Get over it.

Are you one of those poor souls that failed to get in on the Age of Aquarius and Enlightenment? Well don’t dwell on the past. Convert now to Islam and help usher in the New Dark Ages! Why should you miss out on all the fun when you can join in on street corner executions, medieval punishments, whippings, weekly be-headings, and spontaneous stoning parties. And here's a big plus for all you guys...relationship problems will be a thing of the past. Muslim women love beatings and quickly learn to keep you happy at all costs.
Remember those embarrassing court ordered anger management courses; well worry no more because under sharia law anything goes!
Get angry at anything and everything, even imaginary slights. You can blow up at the slightest provocation, figuratively or literally, your choice and what other religion trains you in handling explosives and building detonators from everyday objects like cell phones. Sign up now or just drop by our next bomb workshop and meet some of the boys.
Get in on the ground floor of this zany cult before all the good targets are destroyed. Boom, boom, boom, let's go back to my room! Ooops, too late! Act now and call your local asylum, I mean mosque, for more information.

The people who stereotype, the extremists, etc. these are the people with the loudest voices because they're out there rallying everyday and shouting their nonsensical beliefs. Contrary to what you see in the news, these people are in the minority. This is a huge problem because the majority is generally apathetic, without a sociopolitical voice, and entirely uninvolved in current affairs. We're just sitting watching the circus act like its just suppose to entertain us, as if it doesn't affect us when it clearly does. I'm a moderate with an extremist's attitude. I believe the middle American deserves a voice in this three-ring circus sideshow—the neo-political arena.

Yes, some Americans are narrow-minded but some people like you for instance are pretty much narrow-minded too since you know people like you from China or Timbuktu think WE Americans are all the same. =)
