I was just watching a documentary on the "honour killing" of women in Pakistan. Every year 1000s of women are killed by men (their husbands, fathers, sons or in-laws) with total impunity, because they are guilty or even suspected of adultery, or just for being in public without male permission. And the situation in Afghanistan for woman is similar, if not worse. All in the name of Islam. Rather, all in the name of religion, it's being Islam is irrelevant.
All this just to say that, although you Americans are often consumed in whole in the demonification of the White, white or "white" race because of the specific American experience, seen from a global perspective evilness knows no racial boundaries.
A second question I would like to ask you:In the example of Pakistan, this is a practice practiced and condoned in all levels of society, from the peasant to the senator. Therefore it is, in a sense part of their culture. Does that mean that other cultures have no right to pass judgement and attempt, or rather "attempt" to change this appalling situation?
