    It is important to have insight of a particular cultural group in a particular neighborhood, as then it is logical to understand how there are universal human
    concerns and needs….whether someone lives in Turkey or in the southern US,
    scarce resources are being used to manipulate people into tribal attitudes fostered
    by conservative religious leaders and politicians that foster hatred of “the other”.
