What is the general perception of America and Americans from the outside world? Does it tend to vary by region? What are foreigners typical thoughts?

I imagine in South and central America perceptions of the US must be pretty good.

I’ve met a lot of Brazilians that had great interest in the US.

Also all the migration from those countries to the US implies that they must want to be here.

Otherwise, at least in Europe it seems to be that people (especially in the UK) tend to say more critical and dissapproving things.

Particularly with regard to the abortion laws and gun ownership, they seem to view us as backwards.

But regardless, I’m going to take the opportunity now to clap them back by reminding them that a bunch of American breakaway peasants humiliated the world’s most major power in the 18th century and proved in the time since that we sort of stopped caring what they think.

Also, they got their own issues to worry about as well with frequent stabbings, Pakistani grooming gangs, the highest drug usage rates in Europe and acid attacks all being common. As well as the cost of living crisis. And the woke culture there seems to be even worse.

So I’m less concerned about what British people think of us (they’re probably the most stingy and miserable people anyway) but more so the rest of the continent. At least with German and French people they seem to be more reserved and level headed and less confrontational than British people.

But I haven’t really heard from that many other Europeans.

Also I don’t really know much about what Asians or Africans tend to think at all though I imagine it would probably not be very good since they probably don’t give a rats ass about all the woke BS we’re dealing with in the US.

And Russia and China tend to have more influence on their continents anyway.

But yeah, I’ve heard from a few people that Australian girls like the American accent so I would be curious to know a thing or too about that as well.

Oh. And the other thing British people do is allege mass racism everywhere in America purely based on what they see in the media. LOL

Even though the British people that have actually visited the US generally tend to describe the people here as being more friendly than they are in the UK
