"Their homophobia is our fault"

In The Guardian -

Real liberals would realise it is meaningless to vilify Jamaicans for attitudes that Britain created
Many Jamaicans are not homophobic, but the prevailing attitude to gays is ignorant and sometimes violent. But the fact remains that of all Jamaica's injustices and deprivations, homophobia cannot be singled out as uniquely intolerable. Although activists are right to campaign about it, it's wrong for public opinion to seize on the issue with no thought for political context.
A "context" for homophobia? Priceless nonsense.
