    I think one important thing to remember is that in other countries, their societal issues are not necessarily the same as ours. For instance, in some European countries the people of African heritage do not experience the same problems as the people of Middle Eastern heritage (this was long before 9/11/2001). I think that issues of class are more the issue in other countries, rather than purely about one's ethnicity or heritage.
