The negative comments here are quite eye opening.

Whenever I’ve travelled in the USA (In assume most of the commenters here are from there) I’ve found people to be polite to a fault.

And yet, here is someone saying, “Please don’t call me that, please don’t say that – it hurts my feelings.” And it inspires these vitriolic attacks.

The comments are as educational as the original piece.
