Australians seem to treat my American mother differently to people of all other nationalities. Why?

They seem to treat her as a bit inferior to other people who are Australian, British, New Zealander or Canadian, Irish, Asian, etc. even though she’s lived in Australia for 30 years and is an Australian citizen.

Doctors and hospitals seem to treat her as a second class citizen.

Meanwhile, here in Australia, a lot of people at my local university including professors have a lot of hateful things to say about the US including people from there. In my mind I laugh at them given how bothered they seem by it despite not living over there.

Why are so many Australians so bitter about the US these days? Is it just me or do Australians tend to look down on Americans who live here?

    Obviously you are making this up. Or it's because your mother is not a nice person.

    Australian universities are a breeding ground for socialism .

    USA represents democracy and freedom  that is why they don't like the USA 

    what you see from academia is not reprehensive of the rest of Australia
