Please Americans tell me why your country must oppress people with such malice

What makes you think that people in the U.S. are somehow responsible for the failures of other governments? The U.S. may have influences for its' own interests and benefits, but name one country that does not incorporate this. Name one government that does not look after itself first, in other words.

Why would you travel thousands of miles to live away from your homeland to receive an education in such a bigoted and oppressive country? I guess the lifestyle, education, and the girls at the University of Arizona and in the United States are so attractive that you're willing to risk becoming a victim of bigotry and oppression, or willing to risk becoming bigoted and oppressive yourself just by association. I would really like to know why you would come to a country you find so distasteful? I guess it's your right to feel the way you do, and also express your feelings.
Me? I wouldn't choose to receive an education in a country whose ideologies I despise.
France, that bastion of tolerance and equality, has universities, does it not?

well...like it was said above, it isn't our people, it is our government. Just like in france, we are ruled by the wealthy and influential. most of us couldn't give a damn about frances morality, or anyone else's.
but, on the same side of the coin, don't think it is only in america that you see oppression. France has its own problems. Your slums are full of cast off muslims. we are not so different....except i won't eat faux gras

Furthermore, I sincerely doubt if you are really French. I've been to France. Anyone who leaves France to look for pretty girls elsewhere is out of his mind. French girls rock.

Everyone has their own different design. You ridicule america, then compare to france. There is hardly a comparison my friend, unless you see apples and oranges as equals. America is a place that flirts with peoples desires, their dreams, and their self-esteem. People come to America in search for something better. If they work hard enough they can achieve anything in america.
