Proud to be un-American?
When it comes to America, theres no doubt that a lot of things are misunderstood and taken in the wrong context. Words can be twisted around to make something look worse than it really is, or it can just be completely misunderstood. These are some things that Reddit users pointed out that non-Americans sometimes get confused or don’t fully understand about the States. Some of them might surprise you, some might make you laugh. Either way, there’s no hiding the fact that some things are definitely nothing but misconceptions.
It’s fast food, not good food
I find that many foreigners find our food to be processed and low-quality. When I ask them where they ate, they’ll usually just start naming off the first cheap, gross quick food places they happened to walk by.
There’s a ton of amazing food in America, but there’s also a lot of junk food to sift through too. If you just start eating the first thing you see, it’ll probably be crap. Ask a local what restaurants in their city they recommend! (Waja_Wabit)
American beers sucks.
Not any more b*tches. We fixed that s***. (jessie_k_grey)
That a lot of Americans haven’t traveled to another country. It’s considerably more difficult and expensive for us to do it, especially if you live in the middle of the country. Plus there’s so much to see here (for the record, I have traveled). (Unknownentity7)
