Photos like this are being spread across the internet lately, and they are dangerous for a few reasons. If you’re too lazy to read below; basically ignorant Americans are blaming other people, governments, and religions for problems their own nation caused.

And what you’re seeing in these photos is a deliberately skewed, representing the privileged few in their society at the time.  Here’s another photo of Iranians in 2006, showing a less biased perspective of their society

In conclusion, if you think you can understand decades of history in the Middle East, or anywhere for that matter, by looking at a photograph you are a fucking idiot who has no right to engage in intellectual discussion or give your opinion on anything other than what you watched on TLC last night.

You should read the rest here…
