“Not touching the locals” infantilises the whole population.
I have a friend who's sister went into the Peace Corps and they sent her to Africa.
About a year later my friend told me his sister was leaving the Peace Corps and it was "her decision and the Peace Corps' decision."
I asked him "what happened, did she get knocked up by some black guy?"
He answer "Uh, . . . yeah".
Last I heard they were in Germany. They got married, he immigrated to the US and joined the army as a grunt, and after a while they decided to sent him to Officer Training School, last I heard he'd made Captain.
No subject on which I am called to speak is ever slighted, and if a moral lesson or a religious precept can be drawn from it, the opportunity is never allowed to pass unheeded. My constant aim is to elevate and instruct humanity.
