This is both upsetting and ridiculous. It's easy to see when you think of how the education is handled in the United States. History books, even for more than just the US, is twisted to make America seem like the best place on earth with no flaws. We fought the oppression of the English and won our freedom! Of course that was after discovering an inhabited place and raping, killing, and torturing the natives. I don't remember history books telling us the japan mapese American "internment" camps during WWII. The nazis took a loved, ancient symbol and used it for their hate. If that's the only use of the swastika you know, you have some reading to do. It's ok to not understand. It's not ok to ask another culture to change their ways because you're offended by something you don't understand.
