GUEST,Bee BS: Why do Americans hate France? (85* d) RE: BS: Why do Americans hate France? 04 Aug 06

Why do people recall the worst examples of Quebecois rudeness and ignore the fact that most of the people they are likely to encounter in Quebec are perfectly pleasant and accomodating? Quebecois people vacationing n the ROC undoubtedly experience similar levels of rudeness versus politeness from Anglophones - I've seen it and even intervened once or twice.

My neice recently spent two weeks in Montreal and Quebec City and had an altogether wonderful experience. I recall being in a rural Quebec corner store, with the owners and ourselves in gales of laughter over our mutual attempts to speak enough of each other's languages to make a purchase and get directions. These kind people came by our campsite later to make sure we made out alright.

Why does anyone anywhere profess to hate entire populations of 'others'?
