Foreign Bigots

I saw a bumpersticker on someone's car. It was an American flag.

I was thinking how people say that Americans are not welcome in many places over seas.

So here is my question to people. Should we not have a war, defend ourselves, do what is right because French, Spaniards, etc will not like us?

What does that say about a French person who will not like me because I am an American?

If I got robbed by an Asian guy. And from that point on I started to hate all Asians because one person from that group harmed me, wouldn't most people say that is silly of me? Wouldn't I be called racist?

So, why is it that we do not recognize the French as bigoted rather than worry about them not liking us?
