Tragedy vs. Statistic
FOOD FOR THOUGHT, 26 Jun 2023
22 Jun 2023 – The way the media talks about the Titian vs. how they talk about the hundreds of migrants who drowned are night and day. It reminds me a lot of how the media talked about Ukrainian refugees vs. middle eastern refugees.
The last time I remember reports talking about a refugee’s death being tragic was when that poor Syrian boy’s body washed ashore in 2015.
PS. This goes without saying – the loss of life at the Titanic was tragic and I’m not trying to downplay the severity of loss.
Daniel Medina – My cartoons stand up firmly against racism, xenophobia, hate bigotry, and ignorance. Regardless of the political party one belongs to, if you try to take advantage of the people, you will not be safe from my pen. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
