    Scourge,

    1) We didn't ask what the Nanking Massacre was.
    2) The spelling in your post was horrible.

    well im from the u.s., but im not that offended he did that, im more offended that you talk about beating a 13 year old kid, for all we know he might have meant no disrespect, maby he was drawing it as a memorial thing. and freedom of speech deosnt mean you can threaten to beat people, there is a limit the freedom of speech even in the u.s.
    What do you want to do?
    A.) Scold her?
    B.) Kill her?
    C.) Put it in?

    I'm not saying American students are necesarily any BETTER in this reguard... (for example. how many times on this board have people used the racial slur "Jap" as an abbreviation for "Japanese"?) or that I think the kid was TRYING to be obnoxious (I know he wasn't). I just wonder if there's anything we can do to make kids in our own cultures slightly less ignorant of the potential misunderstandings and hurt feelings that can come from lack of appropriate knowledge in the context of another culture.
    It isn't just children in my limited experience nor is it exclusive to one or two cultures. I can't tell you the number of times I was told what the US was like while I lived in Canada based on hearsay or a single person they had met. Knowing I was from the US only made it worse too. It was if not only did they not realize how rude they were they expected me to agree with them wholeheartedly no matter how absurd what they said was. I think it is a combination of natural pride int their country and the general assumption that everyone thinks the way they do. It has never ceased to amaze me how many people think they know more about a given subject then those who experience it.

    I came out of the experience knowing two things. That the instant someone says "I don't mean to be rude" not only are they about to be extremely rude they really do mean it. The second was that I couldn't dwell on their ignorance or it would leave me very bitter and no matter how rude and ignorant they were on certain subjects in general they were very lovely people that I am glad to have known.

Im not saying it all good and jolly that its this way but it is. Theres not the much unity between people of the world internationaly
    No there isn't. In my opinion the only thing we can do is encourage people to realize that they don't know or have experienced everything and need to ask the ones that do about it if they want to know. However since children tend to be "me" oriented good luck with that till they are older. In the meantime just forgive them and try and educate them when you have the opportunity. Most people are worth getting to know after all.
