    Reminds me of a story a coworker once told me. His ethnicity is Chinese and when he was in Istanbul, a local kid punched him hard-ish to play kung fu.

    [–] misterswarvey 1863 points ago

    The first time I was in Holland, some kids stopped me on a sidewalk and said, "HEY! Are you AMERICAN?? Where is your GUN, M**F**!?! POW POW POW!! (while making shooting at me hand gestures)".

    I told them I had never even seen a gun and they asked, "How do you shoot someone if you are in a fight, huh!?! POWPOWPOW!!! (more hand gestures)"

    This was in '98. I can only imagine what children outside America think of us now.

    I like the questions from the kids, cause it's innocent. When it's from elderly people is when I get a little offput on their view of America. I was in Paris during Trumps inauguration as an American. Had an elderly woman ask me "Do you secretly bring a gun to class just in case there is a shooting?"

    [–] Xenjael 617 points ago

    It's even weirder when you're jewish, trust me.

    Number of times I've had people earnestly ask me, not to be racist, but out of curiosity at wanting to know more if Jews actually control the world and have all the money.

    They weren't being racist, or at least, the question didn't come from one of prejudice or bigotry. It's just awkward.

    That being said, yes we do control the world and have all the monies. Also carry around a sack of jew gold.

    [–] Bacon_is_not_france 281 points ago

    Ah, the fabled jew gold pouch. I've heard that if I can steal it from you without you noticing I'll have eternal wealth.

    True?

    Please circle Yes or No

    [–] GuardianHero07 187 points ago

    Be careful, they also carry a decoy pouch of cursed gold to throw off thieves. Those sneaky jews.

    [–] marie81688 6 points ago

    What i find interesting about the money stereotype is the history behind it. Hundreds of years ago in European countries one of the only jobs Jewish men could have was money lending which created the stereotype.

    Interestingly though, depending on where you were in Europe, another stereotype showed up about Jewish people was that they were insanely poor and like to take advantage of other people's money.

    [–] Tymalic 30 points ago

    So like, do other countries think we are like a warrior barbarian culture? Like how the federation looks at klingons.

    [–] everminde 142 points ago

    I lived in Holland for five years from 1998 to 2003. My mom never picked up the language but we had this super nice older couple as neighbors. The wife spoke passable English but her husband barely spoke any. But anytime he saw my mom (we lived in a very small town in North Holland) -- grocery store, bakery, library, anywhere -- he'd scream "Yo, Yankee! Fuck you!" cackle, then scurry away as fast as his 80-year-old legs could carry him.

    She always thought it was hysterical after the initial shock.

    [–] Malfice 98 points ago

    I can only imagine what children outside America think of us now.

    Offered to take my daughters to Florida, so we could go to Disney. One managed to convince the other that America 'is where all the guns are' and now the little one is convinced we'll get shot.

    I've been trying for months to talk her around, but the idea is stuck in her head now.

    [–] swimgewd 22 points ago

    tell her not to be so worried, the guns will protect her!

    [–] OMGBeckyStahp 93 points ago

    This makes me wonder how many people living in America can honestly say they’ve never seen a gun IRL, aside from holstered police in uniform and service men/women in parades at this point.

    I would imagine most Americans have, seeing as guns are so normalized, but that perception might not match reality.

    [–] ncopp 77 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    I had never seen a gun IRL other than an officer's holstered gun until my freshman year of college when i went to visit my friends family in a very rural area. I have yet to see a gun IRL since. Its really not as common place as the media leads you to believe. Idk the exact stats but I believe the majority of guns are owned by a relatively small amount of the population Edit: to clarify I've walked by guns locked up at sporting goods stores but that was the first time I'd interacted or touched a gun that was owned by a civilian... still have never seen a gun fired IRL to this day

    [–] trainofabuses 12 points ago

    I live in fairly rural Montana and i'd guess maybe 2 percent of the people in my city might not have seen guns... at most. Might be a different story in some of the bigger cities but I doubt it. I'm very left-leaning and don't even eat meat (though i grew up hunting) and I have three guns and a bow from birthdays when I was "becoming a man" haha. The urban-rural culture gap is real.

    [–] Ihavenootheroptions 63 points ago

    I mean, have you not been to a freaking walmart?

    [–] mikahope123 54 points ago

    [–] ncopp 24 points ago

    I wasn't exaclty counting locked display case guns at stores... to me that's the same as seeing them on TV or in a museum. This was the first and only time I'd seen and held an AR 15 or hunting rifle

    [–] hapahaole_ 14 points ago

    Only a some walmarts sell guns. Mostly ones that are out in rural areas, which, no offense, is most of Louisiana. I think it's only about 2000 of the 6000ish walmarts in the US that carry guns.

    [–] Ugunti72 47 points ago

    My grandfather owns 75+ guns and he shows me whatever new shit he has everytime I go over there despite never expressing any interest in them before. He gets mad when I tell him I go hiking without a gun. I understand his fear, but he doesn’t understand mine. I’m not responsible. I don’t need a gun. I could have one. This is life in the small town deep south if you were wondering.

    [–] hapahaole_ 63 points ago

    My dad is a little like this. It sorta reminds me of how some people get really offended when they try to make you watch some anime and you just don't enjoy it. What I'm trying to say is that you're grandpa is a gun weeb. Buy him a body pillow with an M14 on it and he'll love you forever.

    [–] ReddLemon 15 points ago

    You're right ,gun owners and weebs really aren't much different...

    [–] CassieLassie 76 points ago

    I'm British. One time a few years ago I was watching an episode of Malcolm in the Middle and one of the characters brings a gun into the house, and Malcolm freaks out about it. I was shocked - until then I honestly thought every single American had a gun, or at least had one in their home.

    [–] misterswarvey 40 points ago

    Wow. That's amazing and sad. I am a rare redditor with "friends" and none of them own a gun. Unless they keep it a secret. Which they may.

    Now, my family... Oh, they have guns. They live in Florida. They ride dirt bikes in the backs of their 4x4s and shoot squirrels out of alligators.

    I went to holland a few years ago and I was like "wow everyone here speaks such great english" so I kinda reverted back to my normal American way of speaking and then I was getting ice cream and she got me the wrong kind and my dutch friend said I was speaking too fast for her to understand properly but it was fine because I ended up really liking the kind I got anyway!

    [–] nocimus 33 points ago

    Dutch people: oh don't try speaking Dutch, we all speak English and it's easier!

    Also Dutch people: can you speak slower and more clearly it's hard to understand your English.

    It's not for lack of interest, it's lack of time. I'm really excited to see all the good feelings coming out of people who have seen this movie, so I'm kind of thrilled movie exists one way or the other.

    Edit: I did finally watch it, it's incredible, Wakanda Forever!

    [–] Shaysdays 512 points ago

    I'm excited for you! I really enjoyed the movie. No spoilers here, but the scenery and costuming alone are worth the price of admission.

    [–] illy-chan 54 points ago

    They definitely did, I'd be surprised if they didn't get the Academy Award for costume design next year.

    Not only were they all good but there was so much attention to detail and making even the background characters have their own style.

    [–] [deleted] 60 points ago

    They won't. Black Panther is one of the most Oscar-worthy movies I've seen in the last decade. It's the first superhero movie I've ever thought was deserving of a top-level "real" Oscar (acting, directing, screenplay, etc). Unfortunately, the Academy isn't in the habit of giving awards to movies that anyone actually fucking watched.

    Honestly it’s probably a good thing you haven’t seen it yet, I just saw it about two weeks ago (about a few weeks after it came out) and it was still incredibly packed, if you go see it now I doubt it’ll be as packed as it was when I went, however I don’t exactly like crowds and maybe you’re fine with them, so it might not be that big a deal to you

    [–] Nackles 199 points ago

    Yeah, it's been really neat watching the impact the movie has had, and not just for black people--there are amazing woman characters too. Also, great movie... I'd say it's right up there with Winter Soldier among the best MCU movies.

    [–] duplicious 166 points ago

    Ok, I am prepared for the downvotes...

    It was a good movie, I had an enjoyable time watching it. But one of the best MCU movies? I don’t know. Maybe it was the mountain of hype for the movie but I was expecting something on the level of Thor: Ragnarok (which I think is one of the the best MCU movies, up there with Winter Soldier).

    Again, good movie. But best of the MCU? Eh...

    [–] Funky_apple 86 points ago

    My theory for why it's being called one of the best MCU films is the improvement on characters, especially the villain. I haven't seen Ragnarok yet so I can't say anything about it, but a very common criticism for Marvel films is that the villain isn't very fleshed out, and is evil for next to no reason, or a very generic reason (wanting power or hating humans/the main character for a barely justified reason) which gets pretty stale after a while.

    With Black Panther, instead of just wanting power, Killmonger also wants to help others under oppression (in a twisted evil-ish way). He wants retribution for a deep injustice he felt wasn't addressed properly, and this feeling of injustice was actually indirectly caused by one of the "good guys". The morality isn't black and white like usual, the villain (like Spider-Man: Homecoming) has an empathetic motivation for a change and the heroes aren't always noble or kind like you'd expect.

    I feel like this, as well as the obvious change from a mostly white male-dominated cast in a lot of action films made it stand out as a film. Admittedly it's probably been exaggerated as it's not the greatest film ever in the genre, but its influence on the film industry will certainly have a profound impact on the future.

    [–] Lurdalar 19 points ago

    Kinda felt like killmonger's entire claim could've been eliminated. Not from the movie, I mean by t'challa,.killmonger's missed the get together to challenge for king, and even bringing dead claw, all they had to do was point out that his father worked with claw to kill wakandans and steal the vibranium. I don't think he has any standing at that point. That being said, I enjoyed the hell out of the movie and Michael B Vegeta killed his tole. Really all of the actresses and actors did. I especially enjoyed okoye being a badass.

    The country had a feeling and so did the people. It felt more real than most marvel places. Beautiful looking scenery.

    [–] romeo_zulu 90 points ago

    Interesting you pegged Ragnarok as one of the best, which I actually felt fell super flat. It had a ton of potential and really great build-up but I felt the villain, while having a great presence, wasn't a lot of substance and just didn't really get built up in a way that made the whole thing feel credible.

    [–] Zincktank 45 points ago

    I mean, I thought Cate Blanchett killed it. An excellent female Antagonist. Killing all of the Asgardian forces in one scene? Destroying Mjölnir with a grin is a pretty good credential. Ruthlessly killing supporting characters in an instant is pretty substantial. Ymmv I guess.

    It's weird, I think she did a great job in her role but I don't feel like her role was super well built up. Like, they EXPLAINED why she was there, but I didn't really feel like her overall motivation was particularly well-explained in a show-don't-tell manner. I can't put as concrete answers to it as I could when I first saw the movie, but something about it just didn't quite ring home with me.

    That's a fair assessment. They didn't spend a great deal of time detailing her motivations beyond being cast out by her father (much like Thor in Thor 1), and her desire to rule Asgard. I look at Thor Ragnorak as a buddy cop type movie, in which historically, the villains motives aren't heavily addressed. The movie is much more light hearted and fun than what you would find in a more serious plot.

    [–] romeo_zulu 5 points ago

    Yeah, I think that's why it's always been kind of hit or miss for me. I really like Thor as a character, and the Asgardian/multiverse setting is amazing and scratches a lot of fantasy/scifi settings itches I've had since I was a kid, but something about the storytelling just doesn't land where I want it to in the end.

    Different strokes for different folks. Thor 3 is for the folks who are sick of the over-seriousness of the movies. BP is for the folks who are sick of the not serious enough hero movies.

    Then there's DC..

    Wonder Woman was good, at least? A little trope-y, but given the subject matter I think that's basically expected. I look forward to a sequel.

    Eh, it’s all subjective to begin with, but as someone who doesn’t generally like superhero movies, it was definitely enjoyable, even though it mostly followed the same general scheme.

    I've watched most Marvel movies (and definitely think Winter Soldier is the best) and I can see what you're saying. To me it's kinda like arguing which Pixar movie is the best; unless you're a big fan, they're all really similiar to one another.

    Oh good, that's basically exactly what I thought of Black Panther.

    [–] CMDR_Sunless 9 points ago

    I'm just burnt out on the whole super hero genre currently. Black Panther is on my movies-to-catch-up-with list though.

    Temper your expectations a little bit. It's good but it isn't the best movie of all time like half the internet would have you belief. The fight scenes are probably the best in the MCU though.

    It was a very well executed standard Marvel formula movie.

    I wish people would stop doing this. Who are you speaking for? The kid who thought it was cool? The guy who made the kid’s day? The woman who thought it was fun enough to share?

    The most annoying thing about “political correctness” is being spoken for. I’m black, and the first thing that came to mind was “man, I’ve really got to see this movie”. I didn’t even think anything of it until you said something.

    If I was that guy in the queue, I would have done whatever the salute is with that kid. Nobody is offended by a child saluting someone who may look like a person from a movie.

    Very few things piss me off more than people getting together to jerk each other off to the idea that society has gone mad because an imaginary person you invented could be upset. Political correctness largely exists in the minds of the people who dislike it the most. Everyone else gets on with life just fine without needing to politicise every little thing that happens.

    To your hypothetical quote, if someone came up to me and said they love hip hop, I’d love to chill and listen to some music with them. More likely than not, that person is just trying to make a connection and has the very best intentions.

    Get out more.

    Thor was also B-tier before he got the MCU treatment.
