I'm just stating that i find it sad that budo is being distorted into something i belive it is not. And as for me condemning americans in any way that is just my personal oppinion and if anyone feels offended i'm sorry. I have yet to understand how americanizing budo would be positive to martial arts. I do not consider myself being intolerant but i have seen to many examples of american turning culture into something shallow.
What you're really saying, without realizing it, is that you're a bigot.
Being in my situation and living where I do, I get a lot of experience in recognizing subtle bigotry. Your's isn't even subtle.
Maybe you should attend one of my sensitivity courses.
