AFRICA IS NOT A COUNTRY FFS
Well, to be honest you can find people like that in every country.
It might be easier to find them in USA it seems, but it's somewhat understandable as the US is such a large country that it's similar to Europe in size and difference in climate in different parts.
Basically you can spend your whole life inside the US borders and still have quite diverse experiences regarding pretty much everything.
But it does seem that americans are a bit less inclined to care about the world in general than many other people.
