I've spent most of my adult life overseas, been to more third world countries than most, and your comment about Americans not being held in high esteem is questionable at best. In fact, I've always found most people "like" your average American, and the majority of them in most third world nations I've been in, would like nothing better than to move to America.
As to the effects of imperialism, that responsibility lies more with the Europeans than Americans. Our short and not very successful stint at imperialism started toward the end of the 19th Century.
At the end of WWII most of the world looked to us as a model to emulate. Is it completely our fault that they didn't realize their dreams?
