So. I play this silly little game, right? Wellll, they have forums. So there was something bothering me about the news tonight and I posted about it, to see what everyone else thought.

You see, there was this news report on the Swine Flu (zhomg pandemic *eyeroll*). They focused on one of the many small cities that are the largest problem areas. The people that -lived- there pointed out that they only had water for nine hours out of the day. They had no sanitation. The doctors were refusing to come there to help them.

Now, fast forward, about sixty seconds. They're now saying they have no idea whatsoever why it's so much worse in Mexico than in America. O_o Um. Access to water to keep ourselves hydrated, for one. Keeping ourselves clean is a nice one, too. Oh, and let's not forget medical attention doesn't stop just because "zhomg Swine Flu Pandemic!"

It's like they can't put 2 and 2 together.

I mean, I realize that Mexico has free medical care. But that also means that clinics are often overbooked and understaffed to begin with.

But along comes popular player X and they decide to chew my ass out for "flinging ignorance about latin america from all sides" O_o

Dude. I only spoke how I felt about what the reporters were ACTUALLY SHOWING ON THEIR SHOW.

BACK. THE. FUCK. OFF.

Or are we not allowed to state facts about what we saw on TV, and our opinion of them anymore?





On a better note, I found a room for AnthroCon. :3
