Not all americans are bad. There are bad people for every country, and stereotypes for every country. Note: please do not leave any racist comments on this list.

The Top Ten

1 Americans are fat

Mexico and certain countries in the Middle East have a higher obesity rate so we aren’t the fattest country in the world. - JoeBoi

Fat Pride

It is true that america is ONE of the most obese country's. But not every body here is fat, there are people in this country that exercise. Besides, the most obese country is Mexico (no offense to any Mexican users or visitors.) - nintendofan126

All Americans are fat? Are you kidding me?! Saying that makes any person sound very ignorant. Look at the statistics before you go about blatantly saying that, you arrogant brits! - lannypetersong

2 Americans are stupid

Americans don't even appreciate of when non Americans say that they're (Americans) are smart and not stupid at all. But Americans are STUPID and unappreciated Americans that only care for themselves.

Americans are not stupid!

America is probably one of the most intelligent countries in the world. How do you think such a new country gained so much control over the world within 200 years? We certainly aren't idiots. - lannypetersong

America isn't the brightest country. However, it also isn't the dumbest. Yes I know Obama was elected TWICE. But there's stupid people in every country. - nintendofan126

3 Americans always buy the newest stuff

What's wrong with that? - TheInsomniac

Sure lots of Americans buy new stuff. But there's also some Americans that look for old stuff to buy and collect. - nintendofan126

4 Americans are egotistical

As an American, I do have to admit that my country isn’t the best in the world because of corrupt politicians, white supremacists, mass shootings, gang crime, bullying in schools, and of course the infamous Donald Trump. - JoeBoi

The best country in the world? The country with outdated beliefs on guns. Confusing calendars. The KKK. Yeah you are brilliant with entertainment, inventing things.

We're egotistical for a reason. America is indeed the best country in the world. Other countries are just jealous of the attention we get. - lannypetersong

Its true though. americans think all we canadians care about is them - nickisa

Not really. I've seen cons who think Canadians are potheads and socialists. - KalloFox34

5 Americans are racist

Remember the list "Reasons to Hate Americans"? That list is extremely xenophobic. - KalloFox34

Not all of us are. And there's racist people in every country. And how come country can call us "racist," yet when we do it we get criticized? - nintendofan126

Most aren't. SJWs love to exaggerate things way out of proportion. America is probably the least racist and most PC country in the world, but we're always accused of being racists because of how ethnically diverse our country is. - lannypetersong

Um…Some people in this country are not white, so for them to be racist makes no sense. Also, every country in this world has at least 1 racist person, not just America like people brought it out to be. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

6 Americans are lazy

Which is why I won't bother to comment on this - Billyv

7 Americans are greedy

Yep

8 Americans are mean

Probably just on the internet.

9 Americans think they're the best at everything

Naw bro I suck at everything and I know it - TheInsomniac

I'm an American, and I don't think this. I admit the U.S isn't the best country, but to be honest, there is no best country. Every country has flaws. - nintendofan126

10 Americans start wars with every country

What about Nazi Germany? They were the ones who started wars with the most countries as I assume. - JoeBoi

Not true (coming from a Non American).

Not true. America defends Australia and New Zealand as well as their own country. American heroes are AWESOME!

The Contenders

11 Americans are rednecks

And some are either normal people, Asian tiger parents who have high expectations for their kids, politicians who don’t take their jobs seriously, corrupt police officers who beat up people without any reason at all, intelligent people studying hard in Harvard or Yale, etc. - JoeBoi

Woah whars wrong with that - Carri796

Some are, some aren't. Not necessarily a stereotype in some cases. - lannypetersong

Someone needs to repeat history and learn about the civil war - SpectralOwl

12 Americans are conservatives

It would be a horrible place to live if so. - KalloFox34

YES

Ok Bible basher, gun freak, homophobe, so you believe abortion is murder? Those poor little babies don't panic God has made a nice nursery for all of them to live in, but their mother well she will probably perish in a lake of fire with Satan laughing at her. God knows everything so he knew what Adam and Eve would do so why did he make that tree? He knew they would eat the fruit, he knew Satan was a snake before they ate the fruit, he knew Satan would trick them before they ate the fruit How did Noah get every single animal on a boat, how could a man survive in the stomach of a whale yes it was a whale its in the Bible. Now go and shoot some kids in a school you always do it.

This is not a stereotype, and if it is it's not a bad one. It's actuallly best people assume we're conservatives rather than the crybaby, liberal SJWs most of us are. - lannypetersong

13 Americans all say "howdy", "yeehaw" and "y'all"

Only in the south. - JoeBoi

Only cowboys and kids pretending say Yeehaw.

So many of them post y'all on the internet, not seen yeehaw.

Also incorrect - Carri796

16 Americans own guns

Well most do.
Cowboys and Indians never died out.

17 Americans only shop in WalMart

Lol they are pretty stupid

18 Americans mud wrestle

19 Americans only listen to country music

Americans also listen to rock, metal, pop, rap, jazz, etc. Not to mention most of these actually originated from America. - JoeBoi

As an American, country music absolutely sucks. - KalloFox34

That's not true.

Bruh I’m American and I HATE country music, am not egoistic, I am very skinny, don’t think I’m the best at everything, etc etc.
This is why stereotypes are annoying. They’re either not true for the whole group being stereotyped, or there completely false!

20 Americans are always drunk

Kallowfox34 True!

American males are mostly drunk.

Before people went to America I found out where mom came from...Birmingham and the West Midlands...oh my god. Learn something everyday.

I always use my right hand.

Watching slop on television plus ignoring reality equals ignorance.

24 Americans are patriotic and dislike any other country

Not true. - KalloFox34

The first statement is true. - lannypetersong

25 Americans are bible bashers

I thought the stereotype was that they're bible thumpers? - KalloFox34

28 Americans shout USA

I'm a Millennial I have no kids yet, I have no interest in toys, I do not care if the shop closed.

My mum didn't have a Toys R Us, she is a Baby Boomer.
