In my family, we are taught that the English are horrible people who will knock you down and take your potatoes. I am not joking. There is this ancestral anti-English RAGE passed down through my family. It is not healthy. My grandmother on my mom's side would not come to the wedding if I or my sister married an Englishman. Fortunately, after their generation it turns into a generic dislike of the English, and when you hit the generation that includes me, my sister, and our cousins, it's really more of a lack of understanding of why British accents are so special.
