It's not the ugly American, it's the arrogant American.
Fox News is reporting that an IT staffing firm, advertising for a technical writer, created an unusual help-wanted ad:
"Exelon is looking to provide these proposals to Chinese businesses, so someone who is respectful and understands Chinese culture is preferred. An arrogant American will not work well in this role."
Actually, arrogant people, of any ethnic background, are awful to work with and for.
The company has apologized for the tacky ad.
