white vegans be like “honey is unethical because the bees worked so hard on it that’s why I like the completely ethical alternative of sugar harvested by underpaid and abused fieldworkers”
you must feel so glorious on your mcdonalds throne of horse meat blended with cow meat, don’t you
Why? Why is it we’re easy to ignore? I’m going over major Venezuela news posts and even the one with gifs and videos (you know, the ones that don’t require the effort that is reading) barely hit the two digit number note. Low hundreds on a good day.
Bonus rage for the “First Ferguson and now This" tag someone used, because VENEZUELA HAPPENED BEFORE FERGUSON and it got less attention even if it was a nationwide thing. Heck, the death toll in the Venezuela protests was much higher but it got less attention. Both from the mainstream media and from the internet. Where was tumblr’s social justice for Geraldine Moreno being shot point blank to the face by a national guard, or for Bassil DaCosta? What? Were they not black enough for you? Is there like a grading scale where Venezuelans are too light a brown for it to upset you? Was Marvinia Jimenez being thrown to the ground, straddled, and beaten on the face to a helmet a passable offense?
This isn’t an isolated phenomena. I’ve been on the internet since I was 14 and since then posting news about Venezuela or seeing news about them has been like shouting into the void. Over and over and over, no matter how dramatic or terrible the news.
No, I’m sick of this. I want to know why the hell people ignore our country so easily. Why are we, as a nation, seemingly bound to obscurity as we go down crying and screaming? Don’t tell me I’m seeing something that isn’t there, because that gif thing is just a grain of sand in the beach of evidence.
