Neither am I but people are working hard to do exactly that. 

And I do think it's fat-white-west to diss these efforts to give
remote schools free, clockwork and quite desirable laptops.

The only people who could possibly attack anyone working
to help others in this way would be people actually trying to
send free pipes-to-Pakistan. They want both, why not help?

And, why would one crap on efforts to help kids in any way?
Uninformed cynicism might seem almost 'evil' to some folk.
Basically, if you don't like it, either help or get out of the way
is the over-whelming response one is hearing on other lists.

Maybe it is the wrong way to help (?) but people who would
not be helping in any way are rushing to do just that. Laying
off the uninformed 'rich-white-sophisticate' seems sensible.

Cheers, linkers
