Do mainstream Americans know that they're the descendants of Germanic Barbarians?
I was wondering if Americans are aware that their ancestors were called "Barbarians" by the Romans. Their ancestors were also considered uncivilized, violent and uncultured. Are Americans aware that this same concept about Americans is shared by most people in the world today?? It seems to me Americans actually have an opposite perception of themselves while the rest of the world (most of it) thinks they're just as violent, uncultured and uncivilized as in the old times.Additional Details

Well, Italians are civilized as are Latin Americans. Im my question, I'm referring to ANGLO-SAXONS, those were the ones that were called BARBARIANS by the Romans and today are called many more names...
