I dislike Bush also Guest but thats just the way it is.Bush should of never won but thats a whole different issue.America is the shizznit compared to any other country in the world with or without Football.
not to get into an argmument over countries, but you guys do have some big racial issues. i'm not saying there isn't problems here or in any other country in the world. but when i visit the states it seems like everyone is living in their own seperate factions. i recently saw bowling for columbine, and one line really stuck out in my head. i cant remember exactly how it goes, but it was something like: "one thing that can always be counted on is White America's fear of the Black Man". living in Toronto, we get buffallo TV stations as well, and there really is a big difference. the amount of sensationalism and fear-mongering the the american news is just crazy...
in north america we pride ourselves on being diverse and accepting, but i'm not sure if that's completely true. there's still a measure of segregation that continues because of past oppression or conflicts, whether it be african americans, french canadians, or the natives on both sides of the border.
i recently travelled around europe, and spent a lot of time in germany. even though that country was host to some of the worst acts of government-organized racism and hatred ever in the past, i found the people to be the most accepting of anywhere i've been. people would actually just start appologizing to me for things that happened 50 years before any of us were born when they found out i was half jewish. it was ridiculous. but it shows that germany has made some strong movements in the education system and the media, and it shows. this is something that i think we still need to work on over here.
i guess what i'm trying to say is that we like to think we're there already when it comes to living in harmony with one another, but we've still got a ways to go yet.
