I don’t think most Americans hate Russians. Most Americans don’t have passports, travel abroad, know history or geography, much less speak a second language. I doubt most Americans could find Russia on a map, as most couldn’t find Iraq or Afghanistan. We are a strange people, naturally friendly, but easily whipped to hatred. Unless you have shown up as a threat on a cellphone newsfeed in the last 48 hours, we don’t know you, but we love you. Just don’t show up on that phone. Oh, and you’d better love us back… :)
