Living abroadop

Post by T1985 » September 10th, 2010, 6:46 pm

I am African and have lived in the states for most of my life. I am going to say something that may shock people or others may find offensive. I do, however, believe that it will explain why Americans are the way they are. After much observation and reading, I realized that the US is different from other places is because they lack culture. If we look at the history of the US, most of the people who emigrated here during the building of the country were not the aristocrats or the top of the society. They resented the social class systems that were based on family name and lineage and came here to start a new social order based on social mobility. If many of you have noticed, Americans resent social protocol unlike their European counterparts. That is why I think the Americans lack the ability to socially engage with others. They lack the necessary proper tools to do so and I think lack the social sophistication of their European counterparts.
