Should we be concerned about the way gays are treated in certain countries?

    Apparently it's racist to point out such things.

    Yes and no, if that makes sense.

    Sure people can be concerned but it is not going to be easy to change a way of life or a culture overnight. I'm all for people be treated respectfully but going to foreign land and giving the natives your beliefs which is already foreign to them does not always cut it.

    Anyone remember when Barack Obama went to Kenya and brought up the LGBT? The president of Kenya was not having that discussion.

    People can be concerned bout it but you can't just travel to another country and expect the people of that country to consider your values when they care about their own.
