    What about people who starve everyday across Africa?

    Why no urgent recovery for them?

    I understand that the Haitian situation needs consideration, but people suffer everyday across the world . Thousands perhaps millions of people in impoverished nations die of dirty drinking water. People are still going through slavery.


    We should help all social ills of the world. Don't just all of sudden give a hand for Haitians. We should all donate for every cause.

    There are people who donate to and/or take part in different causes around the world. That should be apparent based on the number of organizations out here to help others. I would hope that giving increases in general, but don't assume what people do.

    There are ongoing programs for different countries in Africa. Do some research and maybe you can help and or make donations to organizations such as unicef.

    But why isn't the awareness widespread?

    The deaths in Haiti is around 2% of all deaths in the world.

    Exactly. I'm wondering why he seems to think that there aren't ongoing programs to which people contribute. Just because people respond to huge crises doesn't mean that they are not active in other causes.

    That's an issue of the value that individuals place on each other as human beings. Unfortunately, we all don't value each other (at least not highly enough) or see the connection between us all. However, there is plenty information out there for those who are interested.

    Dude just because you live your life like an ostrich, that doesn't mean that the news and programs about other countries are not widespread.

    I'm not saying there is a problem. I'm going to put in a hand today. I'm just saying that we should all rally and donate to all of the causes in the world.

    There are people who do...do you? What kinds of activities are you generally involved in?

    What makes you think we don't? What makes you think people all over the world don't? Not everyone broadcasts or need to broadcast what charities they donate to. Not everyone can be like MJ and donate to every or nearly every cause in the world. But for the most part people do what they can with whatever resources they have. It's a more simple concept than you think.

    You can state your case without sounding like your protesting the attention haiti is getting.

    Thank you. He's going around assuming that people don't give or don't want to give others around the world. Note his comment in the other thread doubting that any IMIXERS would actually go to Haiti and help. Seriously ignorant...but maybe it's because that's how he has chosen to conduct himself for so long. Guess it's difficult for him to imagine that others live differently.

    He has a really bad case of the ostrich syndrome and I don't think it's going to go away any time soon. *smh*
