Only Westerners can be insentive

[source, source]

U2 frontman BONO was horrified during a visit to Ethiopia, when he saw local women pelting a breast-feeding aid worker with stones.

The American woman was oblivious of the offence she was causing, and had to escape the angry onslaught from female Muslims who had no qualms about injuring her or her baby.

Bono: “She didn’t mean to be insensitive.” But they did.

It wouldn’t be so bad to be expected to behave as others do in their countries if we could expect others to behave as we do in our country.
