    Me? I generally find myself feeling mild animosity towards most of them. With a few exceptions.

    what exceptions ?
    I personally find them to be a bit more of Asian style in some ways, with a few exceptions, those who live near the Can-US border.

    What does Asian-style mean? :confused:

    What's a Canadian?
  6. Aug 8, 2005 #5
    why can:t you just answer my question to you first ?

    Ok, It means 20% of their lifestyle and especially ways they behave and talk is just similar to those of Asian people, am I wrong ?

    Are Chinese really that good in Canada and the US ? I doubt really much about this.

    I'm not gonna say who I like because then I'll insult everyone else. Danger is one of the few that has earned my respect though, better than that last quebecois kid who was here.
    Yeah, I think you are wrong, personally. I see huge differences between east asians and canadians.

    I asked so because I find that most of them occupy a lot of high positions in famous schools, organizations in North America, ...

    Its spelled Canadicans... duh

    This is opening up a can of whoopass... but it makes for good discussion. I don't think being canadian has that much to do with it except for the fact that perhaps alot of the topics that get discussed are American oriented and Canadians (who, no matter how closely related, are not part of the american system or specific way of life) will not be able to have more than an outsiders :) perspective. Therefore a lot of misunderstanding and oversimplified speak (cuz this is the Internet) will cause some emotions in some and thus the feeling of anamosity. I am new here, but I find that quite a few debates go off topic and become debates over individual credibility and it's very disappointing.

    But.. I'm Canadian too.
  15. Aug 8, 2005 #14
    yes, I can see that.... so my point is that - you don't know what it really means to be american, and therefore you will not be able to fully assess something from the outside looking in.
  16. Aug 8, 2005 #15
    :confused: so... Americans are better at understanding Canadians than Canadians?

    Or do you mean Americans get along with Canadians better than Canadians?
    :confused: :confused: :confused:

    U are pretending to be confused, and that's just too bad :rolleyes:

    As I stated earlier:

    "alot of the topics that get discussed here (on PF) are American oriented issues and Canadians will not be able to have more than an outsiders :) perspective. "

    therefore: how can one fully assess something from the outside looking in?

    I've read your other posts, and perhaps the anomosity may stem from a personal perspective rather than a cultural one. It seems as you are one of the prominent Canadian threadmongers - since you can't change the past, maybe you might want to think about how you are representing your country in your future postings :zzz: gnite

    I got a misunderstanding for ya. What does this have to do with liking Canadians? Sure SOME Canadians will come in and act like they know more about America then Americans do... but why would that make you feel bad or good about em. Sure it can be considered a "trait"... but theres so many other traits that tell you more about what kind of person it is your talking to. Grammar nazis piss me off to a whole new level compared to Canadians. Plus of course theres the trait where people can turn any simple or humorous topic into a political thread. Boy do they ruin the day...*cough* Art *cough*.

    And of course, why are we judging people based on where they live? Surely a few peoples mannerisms don't reflect an entire nation? Just because a few Brits think their breakfast and oddly named jams are the reason they are the greatest empire in history doesnt mean everyone thinks that way or acts that way. Just because a few French think they are one step above the evolutionary ladder then us "humans" doesn't mean everyone thinks that way. Just because a few Australians like basically any band that will go on Carson Daily's show doesnt mean their entire country is full of braindead slobs.... although lately ive had my doubts :tongue2:

    So lets all come together, tear down the walls of race and ethnicity and unite as the human race on this great planet earth and let us forever criticize Australia's taste in music.
