The Vietnamese culture. So darn judgemental, some of the viets are... especially the elder ones.

Has absolutely no respects or regards toward most strangers whom appears just a little different than them. I guess most of them are not yet used or adapted to living in the U.S. soil.

no cultures should be left alone because there has already been enough destruction to a lot of cultures that people find as approvements and besides looking at every culture as being the same is boring and takes some spice out of life for some people

i agree, i live in a city with the 2nd most viet population in u.s., and go to a school where 65% of the students are asian. if your not viet or asian, and don't act like your obssesed with anime, they'll treat you like shit, and look down on you.

The only culture that I think should change off the top of my head is the tribes in Africa that still practice female circumcision. A lot of those girls are forced into it against their will which is so wrong. Not to mention the pain is unimaginable I'm sure. It sounds more like torture in most situations to me.

Every culture has good points and bad points. I think all cultures need to change a little, but as far as arranged marriages go, it really doesn't do any harm. arranged marriages don't fail nearly as often as ones based on 'love' (possibly because they understand and willingly fulfill their cultural roles in the marriage). as far as second rate women go, that one is a little more difficult because it is tough to destinguish between the current cultural practice and the origional intent of those practices. if you look carefully cultures that so called degrade women also focus on how sacred women and thier bodies are. I disagree with many of the current practices particularly treating women as property and being violent toward them, but I agree with the cultural intent that women are sacred and their virtue and modesty should be protected from others lusts.

i dont agree on arrange marriages or woman treated 2nd so indeed these have changed in the western and some part of eastern but in middle east it is also part of there religion and woman will always be treated as 2nd in alot of things.

even though i believe in different things than some other cultures, i don't think they should change anything unless they are willing to. nobody should be forced to change just because someone else thinks that it is right. yep

in india they need to stop the public stoning of woman, and just the terrible treatment of them, like ppl in the states think they have inlaw problems oi

um I would just say anything were ppl are tortured or babies (actual live babies breathing living organisms...) that are killed b/c of retarded reasons (like a tribe in africa kills twins b/c they are seen as evil)

I honestly think that in each culture you could always change a few traditions. I believe the way to start is by educating the population, and slowly changing their traditions.
