I mean... I don't want to be insensitive because I know it's historic and all, but the historic churches in my community have been burning for centuries and nobody really gave a fuck so... yeah.

Burning American churches is a hobby for racists, so we usually get the whole 'get over it' thing when it happens to Black folks, but when it happens to white folks it's a TRAGEDY.

Ha, I'm just gonna go back to what I was doing.

@Are0h (I assume this is about Notre Dame burning in Paris, ignore me if it isn't)

The way every single personality from left to right is going on French TV to talk about how this is a national tragedy, their eyes looking like they have a double conjunctivitis, is pretty sickening.

If this had been a synagogue or a mosque, nobody would care.

I'm not going to care about old catholic stones either.

@mathieu I got up and checked the news and saw how so many writers are waxing on and on and I just laughed out loud.

The only thing more hilarious than the gross hypocrisy is the idea that we're just supposed to ignore it.

@Are0h I heard a TV channel interview an academic specialized in the history of religions who said "I'm not an expert in firefighting, but I wonder if we couldn't have done more to prevent the fire…" 🙄

It's now treated as a national emergency, Macron cancelled its big announcements yesterday so he could be there to support the catholics.

And of course, rich dudes suddenly found 300 millions to donate for reconstruction, but only if they can deduct 90% of it from taxes.

It's all ridiculous.

@mathieu It's funny how money magically appears when white dues want it to, but when it comes to affordable solutions that make people's lives easier all we get is "IT'S NOT FEASIBLE! IT'S TOO HARD! BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH"
