We don’t get to decide what upsets or offends other people. I have heard some Americans respond to recent riots in Muslim countries over the release of a film that criticizes the Prophet Muhammad by saying that we shouldn’t sell them our technology or send them foreign aid. I hate to break this to you, but that’s some of the most juvenile thinking I have ever heard! First of all, “our” technology is largely from Asia. More importantly, every culture has the right and responsibility to determine what is offensive to them. It is nothing short of arrogance, racism, and imperialism to believe that Americans have the right to tell anyone else how to feel – even, I might add, other Americans.
