...So usually I don't get involved in American politics, being largely none of my business as an Aussie but I'm a Foo Fighters fan so I read the article on McCain using one of their songs...and I saw this comment:

It could be fun actually if Barry the socialist toilet log wins. Imagine all the fun we will have learning foreign languages, kissing Islams ass and paying out of our paychecks for deadbeats who won't work along with their 12 children black families.


YO YO YO YO YO YO YO AFFIRMATIVE ACTION Y'ALL!


Now by and large I like Americans, the people I've met have been intelligent and thoughtful, if sometimes a bit prone to making their opinion known about everything...but I've seen or heard several such comments in the last week, not really about Obama but just stupid racist or otherwise offensively prejudiced comments by Americans, and I'm starting to doubt my previously positive opinion...so you guys who live in the country, are people like this around enough to worry you?
#2
Not enough to worry me, no. They just post a lot more on the internet than the ones with actual brains in their heads.

If I say yes, will you think postively about us still? =)

Yes, this is very true. Though there are plentyy of americans like this, most of us are not. its just that these few get so much attention it kills the rest of us and the u.s. reputation
#13
The answer is yes, most of this country is like that.

I'll apologise for them.

Sorry. We're not all bad - it's just that the stupid majority yells the loudest.

Just an ignorant loser.

I live in LA, so I can speak for most of the Hispanic-Americans here.

McCain is a jerk, and thinks because "He was in the Vietnam War" He can get stuff for free, just like a lot of those hobos on the exits of freeways/expressways. Hence why he used epic songs for his campaign without permission.

I can't wait 'till he uses Sad But True without permisission, after he loses. Lars vs. McCain will be epic!

not completely.
but its hard because that dude is (although he came off as racist) somewhat correct.
were moving closer to communism and its ridiculous, pretty soon the government will be taking half of every small business owners profit just to pay for some one who can't work hard. and 90% of all small businesses already fail. there isnt much incentive to work hard and succeed is there?

so yeah, that dude is right.

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION YALL!!!!

Yeah dawg we's all like that man whatchoo got a problem wit dat?


But seriously, no. And if you even have to question whether or not we're all like that, you fail.

Americans are at least 34% less intelligent on the internet than in person, and it's especially varied depending on the region, but you don't really have to worry that much about us.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

America was built with the freedom of religion, but no one respects their beliefs. If a man chooses to be musslim , then they will see that man as a terrorist just becuase of his beliefs.

Actually - if you want to be technical - I didn't say that I wasn't the majority - I just apologized for it.

You took it that way. But I guess you can only SPECULATE.

There are people like that here, but that doesn't mean we're all like that. Our people are diverse, too. Not everything made in America comes from a factory and is exactly uniform, you know...

Two great examples of such are the American people and Gibson.

Ah, but the same majority elected bush.

Twice.

Besides - politicians are all crooks. They just use different words to say the same shit. If Obama changes the world, I'll eat my words gladly.

And I'm a moron becuase I don't think how you do? I thought this was the land of the free? Isn't it my right by citizenship to think how I want? So narrow minded. Really. How do you all even know it wasn't just a joke?
