Here's a webcomic from "Let's Be Friends Again". Trigger warning: It alludes to the Trayvon Martin tragedy.

We already are.

I mean, the death of Jackson was a tragedy, but people seeming to think that it was more important that people attempting to rise up against a totalitarian regime that has institutionalised torture, rape and murder, only to be crushed due to the government abducting anyone who could be recognised in photographes or footage from the protests, along with foreign journalists etc. etc.

Oh, we Western people and our priorities. ^^

I think we're fucked up, not doomed.
Humans are bloody brilliant, even if they're often too stupid to notice.

So true. I don't know what it is about dead celebrities that make people ignore pretty much everything else in the world.
I think the first time it really showed was back in the days with the death of princess Diana.
I remember there was some controversy regarding a psycologist who theorized that much of it was a in fact just a outlet for our everyday frustrations ( that some people didnt cry as much for Diana, as they did for having say, their car impounded)
Sure, death is always a tragedy, no doubt about that, but look at the response to the death of Steve Jobs, or Ann Nichole Smith...
