Did you ever think that maybe that person lived there as well?!?! Just because someone is a westerner doesn't always mean they are a tourist. You made your assumption on looks and language.
There are nut jobs all over the world!

or does honesty really have no bearing on how you measure the world?
If so please unfriend me. I will not help people lie and perpetuate ignorance through lies or be associated with anyone who enjoys hate speech about a whole group of people. Even white westerners. You may do as you wish for whatever reasons you like.
I do not think we are compatible. I have standards I will not modify. Truthfulness being one of them.
The Gray Area is a discussion forum that provides a dedicated area for members to post their confessions, disclosures, and related extraordinary personal experiences.
Like the highly speculative Skunk Works forum, The Gray Area will tolerate topics that may be unusually hypothetical or unproven for the purpose of vetting the stories of thread-starters by the ATS membership at large.
By nature, The Gray Area tends to involve unproven claims and anecdotal testimony that may arouse skepticism in some members.
As always, skepticism is fine, but only when expressed in accordance with the AboveTopSecret.com Terms And Conditions Of Use.
In particular, Courtesy Is Mandatory. Insults, ridicule, harassment, abuse and similar behavior constitute a direct attack on what this forum is intended for, and will be treated accordingly.
Members unable to politely discuss unusual, unproven or unorthodox subjects should avoid this forum..

You are certainly the perfect example of compassion, and opposite of hatred and judgment, aren't you?
I have no idea why you would put me as a "friend" as you have already made similar attacks and harrassment of me in other threads, as you have done here. But in any case, I cannot undo that- only you can. Your request was futile.
