    Where I live in America this is how most are. Glad I don't live where the two above me live that would really stink to only see those kind of people.

  • Way too hard to answer. There is every kind of person here. And often you could apply the best and worst of these words to the same people!

  • I'm thinking some on here need to surround themselves with better people... ;o) I have lived in 10states~ and would not use words like Shallow, murderous, hypocritical, hateful, etc to describe the MAJORITY of Americans I come across.. Not to say SOME aren't describes this way... But a majority to best describe America? No... I wouldn't want to see the MAJORITY of people some of you all have encountered to determine such words to describe Americans as a whole...

  • I answered what I see in Ky and the surrounding areas. Now, it's not all, just most. Seems that's how most of the people around here in the southern area are.
