I don't care about anything though. I'm pretty equal opportunities in terms of what I don't care about.

Some of my Facebook friends provably care more about what they're going to serve for the company they're having in the weekend, than what happens to asylum seekers.

I think you care far more about a great many things that effect you directly more than some fucking refugees

So a chance happening for sure that I'm part of the group and met that woman, but it's not like he randomly joined some group not connected to SP peeps at all. but it's not an SP group.

is anyone happy? what is it like? it kinda kills me seeing any mean right now. injustice all around. opinions. assholes. somewhere in all lf that is some pure swan love i hope. but it feels like quicksand and like nobody understands anybody. my sense of humor is so off too. i can't even detect jokes anymore or rants for what they are everything feels like an attack. silence feels like a huge unaccepting dick slap. i feels all the sads of silent sad people just churning up inside.

this is about facebook i aint even on that shit someone lock me up.

At least one Facebook friend thinks this is funny enough to share.

I find that fact funny enough to share.

i get that some people feel like "what if that was a black baby in an american city.." no one would care but i feel like thats the lowest hanging fruit to go and divert attention from the fact that people are intelligent and have these internal dialogues and some are more capabable at calculating where tragedy lies on a scale but doing that undermines the true feelings people have when they are not racist, uninformed or living in a bubble. shit is horrible. to varying degrees. everywhere.

there is always gonna be someone waiting to diminish your feelings because vulnerability is easy to spot and fuck it. not everyone can do something. not everyone has an audience or a soapbox to stand on. "but this exists over here worse.." its just a rotating news headline when human atrocities have gone on since the dawn of the planet of the apes and just gets worse and at some point as a spectator you get disillusioned and desensirized to it all so much that when your brain cells fire off some empathy or sadness its just another day, another dead baby on the beach. and when we can we feel like we do sometjing affecting someone else but really we're just managing the guilt and humiliation of being alive or privileged in any way.

I think I'm jaded because the attitude to Sri Lankan and Afghani refugees here has been intolerably cold and cruel, but as soon as there is a picture of a dead child they can relate to, everyone suddenly cares. I can't help but be disgusted by that kind of tribalism.

I don't think it's tribalism so much as it is a bandwagon effect and armchair activism. At the end of the day, the entire refugee crisis is being treated by most as a viral meme.

so i guess the care is directed at the media and the hates at the people that the media might have influenced displayed social media care. seems misdirected when the media, comprised of individuals who threw around words like migrants and diminished their suffering in a single word weren't doing any help in making people care until a light skinned baby that made everyone (the white people borg on facebook) care.

attention does something. i understand you want to sit and all fight over what the word caring means but that seems like a huge waste of time.
