IF's opinion of Americans
« on: August 07, 2008, 08:28:45 PM »
Being American, I am curious as to what the IF's thoughts were about us. How much did the kids know about us and our history?
I'm back on my bull****.

I don't know about America, but here is a thread discussing OTMA's possible knowledge of other cultures.

I see someone in the thread mentioned the assassination attempt on Nicholas II in Japan as a possible starting point of his referring to the Japanese people as "monkeys". Also had read that same explanation in one of the books I've devoured on the IF in the last year.

Tatiana once called the prince of Siam a monkey to his face.  After Alix scolded Tatiana, the prince laughed and apparently they were good friends after.

I'm not sure on the American views. 

I heard that a prince in Japan found OTMA to be very attractive by looking at their pics but I'm sure if that was true.

Personally I don't think that they would know anything about American history, and probably not much about their culture.

I heard that too!
also young men in England as well!

I don't think Russia personally cared for Americans.. i know in the Novel by Carolyn Meyer, she wrote that it was funny thinking that the people of America voted for their leader, instead of a God given right.

President Theodore Roosevelt hosted peace talks in the US with Russia and Japan following the Russo-Japanese war, but the children were probably too young at that time to have an opinion on the matter -- if they were even aware of the settlement.

You made me think of a story about Russo-Jap war where the children seen photos of the Imperial Japanese children and apparently they said they hated the children and called them monkeys too.  And someone said that the war wasn't the Imperial Japanese children's fault and it made the children feel guilty for saying it was lol.

The American thing it is a hard topic :)
