It's dehumanizing for any group when an outsider comes in to observe, particularly for a very short time, forms rapid opinions and broadcasts them. The arrogance of "drive by" investigations into a culture like this Business Insider article, is never acceptable. How can a reporter actually believe they understand what is going on if they don't live there at least for a while and talk to many, many people? Furthermore it just isn't fair to focus on one aspect of a culture ignoring the multitude others that grow in it's circle. Unfortunately it's up to us, the commoners, to speak up when this happens. So, let's keep it up, folk! Arrogance married to ignorance is not acceptable!!!
