maybe there is some hostility toward traditional American values by some groups that feel oppressed by them.
Then those groups should feel free to leave, and go live in other countries, where they would find out what "oppression" is. They have it better here than anywhere else in the world.
You have no doubt found the probable reason.
Still a loving parent has an obligation to the child to not intentionally place hinderences in their life or to put the poor child into ackward positions and a lifetime of embarrasment. Then again its also easy to see a lot of these parents are not so loving of their children as can be witnessed most any day at any Walmart.
