After the U.S. had it's race riots in the mid to late '60's,
the Europeans liked to crow about how much better things were there.
Then in the '80's they started having race riots, too.
Think I'm overstating my case?
Try talking to a Korean who has lived in Japan.
Or an Algerian in France. Or a Turk in Germany.
Patriotism is a funny thing, ain't it?
