Sharon Stone and Tibet: The height of arrogance and stupidity

Sharon Stone has "apologized" for the following remarks made in response to the devastating earthquake in China causing tremendous loss of life, injuries and untold hardship for millions of human beings:

"I'm not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans because I don't think anyone should be unkind to anyone else," Stone said. "And then this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and then I thought, is that karma? When you're not nice that the bad things happen to you?"

It is hard to believe any human being could be as inconsiderate as Sharon Stone who doesn't have a clue to the problems in Tibet she claims to be so concerned about.

To think that Stone would make such a debased and inhumane statement about hundreds of thousands of people she doesn't even know demonstrates a chauvinist mentality that has been promoted by the neoliberal establishment which views human beings in other countries as less than human.

Sharon Stone making these disgusting comments says more about how dehumanized American society has become than about how stupid and ignorant Stone is.
