America the Beautiful: What We're Fighting For

This piece is written to discuss Anti-Americanism. It describes how after 9/11 how the world looks at us. Its also describles so much we are hated, why and what we can do to stop the hatred.
America is considered one of the best places on Earth because of the many freedoms that can be received, even though this may be true, there is so much Anti-Americanism because of our interference, violence and greed.

How do you feel about Anti-Americanism, is it just as right for other countries to hate us as it is for us to profile people from other countries?

I don't believe either one is right. The United States should not treat people of other races and ethnicity any different than whites. Some people are of different races and ethnicities and have been living here all there lives. So people here and everywhere should be treated with respect no matter how they look. Other countries should not hate the United States, but we are setting a bad example by doing this to people here in the US.

I don't think its right either way. Isn't this what us Americans are good at though? Saying well they hate us so Ima hate them back and teach them for coming here....I think its a game that goes back and forth..Anti-Americanism isn't right and hating people because they are different isn't right but it's going to happen, and it wont change until there isn't racisism, sexisim, and all the other ISMS...

First of all kayla, i don't think that anyone has the right to hate another person or another nation because if we didn't have so much hate in the world, the world would definitely be a better place, so these countries that hate America, i dont think they have the right even if they feel that America did something to them, but if a nation hates another nation, then there would be a problem.

This is one of the convos we had in class where I stumped Jerz... haha... anyways, I dont believe its right, I dunno who would. People from other countries profile us, and we profile them. We make it seem like we dont do it, but we do!!!
