Mike7077 Posted December 9, 2008 Share Posted December 9, 2008 We really need to stop generalising the Americans as a nation, I'm very suprised by the xenophobic gang mentality on here sometimes. I'm not sure if you're including me in that, but in case you are, I feel I need to clarify what I was saying. Firstly, as someone who studied American politics in great depth and through choice as part of both my degree and my Master's, I am not the type to engage in generalisations. I am by no means a fan of everything America does, but it is still a country I admire and take a great interest in. With regard to my post, I did say 'Americans', but I do realise that there those who are enamoured with British culture and admire us and things about us. But I also know that, as a whole, Americans are fiercely proud of the things that they create and take less easily to things that may be popular elsewhere. Sport is a good example of this. So is television. This is why I argued that FM's success in Britain doesn't necessarily have any bearing on how popular it could become in the US.
