        The uncivilized trash/minority (this applies to all races) does in no way represent “American culture.” The primitive “man is superior to woman” concept is something that has been virtually destroyed in our culture, however; 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th world countries are yet to get there, which is where the uncivilized diverse trash immigrates from. Thanks for playing.

      Wow, Johnny-One-Note, of course Caucasian people have never harmed a child and Caucasian men have never hit a woman. Your post is ridiculous. One should not be proud of their bigotry.

  • it's not the society

    Violence against women and children is NOT culture related but IGNORANCE related.

      Mysoginy is clearly demonstrated as a part of many cultures. It is the very cornerstone of many of them.

      You don’t know what you’re talking about.
