Like I said before, America certainly isn't perfect, but neither are we anywhere near as troubled as most other countries when it comes to these social issues.
No, pointed out America isn't perfect (It's not) and trying to use a broad brush to paint everyone who doesn't adhere to our way of life is "bad", sounds a lot like ethnocentrism to me.
