Hmmm. Latin America is a big place, with a lot of diversity. Not all Latin Americans are alike or have the same culture. From my experience in Latin America [not in the U.S. among Americans of Latino descent, even though I grew up in so-called Hispanic neighborhoods, and I'm 'white'] Mestizos in particular are generally very polite and civil people. And they don't like to rock the boat. They'll tell you or say what they think you want to hear, and rarely complain, at least publicly. They also hide their family problems and other problems. It's considered impolite to criticize or complain too much. So I'd take this poll with a grain of salt.

Even in the U.S., we have cultural differences region to region. Here in the northeast it's considered perfectly acceptable complain and discuss grievances. You'd be considered a chump if you didn't. There's less passive aggressiveness and more outright aggressiveness. And of course there's socioeconomic differences, also. Rich and poor people in my experience tend to be the most not afraid to express their anger or grievances, many middle class are afraid to make a 'scene' [and be considered low class?], rich and poor people don't seem to care.

The U.S. and Canada rank low on the list but not as bad as European countries. You want to deal with some seriously moddy people, travel and live around Europe. Asians rank dead last in happiness, with Singapore taking the top spot.

Have you ever been to Brazil? Argentina? Chile? Uruguay? Colombia? Even Puerto Rico? There are people with blond hair and blue eyes, Asians, everything. The Latin Americans who come to the U.S. tend to be mostly Mestizos [Native Indian, mixed white] and yeas, they are almost always brown eyes and dark hair. They tend to be the poorest people in their countries. The wealthy Latin Americans, including Mexico and the middle class [there is a middle class] tend to be 'white'.

Re: Latin Americans are world's happiest people: poll
The reason I think is because even though they tend to be poor they are not judged and condemned for it. They can still have a wife and some children.

Here in the states, everything is money and looks. EVERYTHING. Being poor means being ostracized and generally treated like an addict of some kind.

Now this is just my theory.

lol they are not poor the majority have pretty a decent life

In fact even if they dont earn as much as in the U.S they don't spend as much either as products are cheaper.

Like tons of organic fruit for what in american dollars would be a couple of dollars

Ah, I appreciate the correction. It always seemed to me that they never really had as hard of a time getting things done in life as a lot of the people here. Too many hang ups over here.
