Top Five Countries Americans HATE
“They hate because they fear, and they fear because they feel that the deepest feelings of their lives are being assaulted and outraged. And they do not know why; they are powerless pawns in a blind play of social forces.” Richard Wright, Native Son
CNN did a news report on the top five countries that Americans hate. It must have been a slow news day. Hate is a very strong word to use for countries. I looked at the list and it should have been the top five countries Americans fear. Isn’t hatred really fear? If you start making a list of the countries you hate, it will be easy to add more. A little hatred goes a long way.
5. Palestinian Authority
2. North Korea
I looked up the countries Americans love and couldn’t find any. According to the internet, we only like or hate countries. Here are the top three countries Americans like. I guess Americans like countries they connect with or that make them feel safe. We seem to have forgotten WWII now so maybe the War on Terror will some day be a thing of the past .
This led me to my own list. Countries I will probably not go back to. I certainly don’t hate them. There were many things I liked about them. It helps if they have great art , architecture, Machu Picchu, shopping and beaches. But the reality is, if I don’t like the food, I’m not coming back.
I do really like the bread in these countries. Lithuania would be my #1 country in which to eat bread because I love dark dense bread.
My favorites list is not based on food, but coincidentally consists of countries that serve my favorite foods – fish and pizza. Everything else they serve is equally delicious. I am starting to see a relationship between dining and favorite countries. Food is definitely a big part of the cultural experience. I didn’t have a lot of fish or pizza in Turkey but I did have pide ( bread melted cheese and toppings). My favorite countries (and food ) so far:
I will be happy to keep adding countries to this list !!!!
