    meh, most political outrage is fake. And while I agree this isn't some pressing issue, they certainly deserve some criticism over it.

    Yes I know but Caucasian is a very vague, inaccurate modern racial grouping to begin with. Many Arabs could fall into a visual "caucasian" label (as could many Mestizo mixes). Caucasian doesn't really mean white in many contexts for many people.


    That said, what's interesting is that he threw in with some archaic, primordial Middle East desert fantasy made by Arabs and he's probably not even largely racially Arab, Asian. That's the true irony. Islam is the prime reason that part of the world has no respect globally.

    " The cover of Rolling Stone magazine has most often been the domain of musicians, actors, comedians, and the occasional politician. But this week, the periodical has raised eyebrows by letting Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev grace the famous front.

    Yes, you're right of course.

    Well, it might be part of it, but I don't see Indonesia as having quite the same problem (in terms of how others view it). And not because Indonesia has behaved better than Arab states. It has been worse than most, in fact.

    Ironically, Indonesia undertook 25 years of mass murder in East Timor so severe that it can probably be termed "attempted genocide"...and the West was all happy and eager to help them in their endeavor. Intentionally and materially helping mass murder. (Same with the "communist" [sic] slaughter in Indonesia itself in 1965).

    So part of the view point of "respect" might arise from our determining with whom we are allied in terror, rather than an objective view of their actual bad behavior.

    The answers to your questions depend on several factors such as the age of your child and what you have taught your child. However, the fact remains that "shielding" a child until they become an adult (and in many cases, an adolescent) is not a realistic option.

    And we're not talking about every possible thing a child may come in contact with. This thread is about the RS cover. Why does a child need to be shielded from seeing that?

    I genuinely don't understand what you're asking, here. The hostility is coming through, but not the meaning.

    Re: Rolling stone cover

    Another interesting aspect of Eastern European Caucasians from old Soviet states throwing in with Islam is that it's true, they aren't Arabs mixed with Asian in a majority of their genes. They truly are not. So it is very odd (and, frankly, pathetic) that they adopt and promote Islam which is absolutely the religion of the Arabs. The same is very much true of many Turks if we're being raw here. Most Turks are simply culturally Arabized mixed Caucasians.



    In a very factual sense, if you want to see the failing parts of the world economically, technologically, progressively and other, all you have to do is find the Islamic countries. They are all at rock bottom unless you compare them to failed states such as the Congo or Zimbabwe.
