God has taught us that we are to treat others as we would want to be treated. Respect plays in there as well. We respect those we know...those that earn our respect. That is the American way right? What about other culture's? They respect on stature, on their place in culture, or their designated place in ones life. American's do on a certain level as in respect for authority, but we do not see it as a given. It is a right we have. We may ask ourselves if this is what God want's of us, but the fact is....we are supposed to treat them as we want to be treated. No matter what they look like, no matter what their culture, no matter who they are.
