So proud to live, so proud to die

It tears my eyes that today in the United States if a child goes into school and murders ten of his class mates it gets on the front page of the New York Times. And get nonstop network news coverage. In till they have to brake for the occasional Viagra or Levitra commercial.

But when it happens on a Native American school what happens? We knock it to page 3 have a real nice feel good sidebar a week later to ask why and how. was he the product of some pathetic parents?
We don’t like to think about how badly we screwed the Indians over. No that would be bad for the national product gross. No, we want to know vaguely important facts about vaguely important people, keep the production line going. Pump that check out, feed your body and starve your brain and don’t ask any questions like why.
