    I wonder how he would feel if it were his mother trapped under the rubble.

    These people are brown-skinned & Muslim and therefore different from the majority of us.

    The victims mostly are female.  Many of them were the sole breadwinners in their families.  Some of them were unmarried daughters and the only employed people in their families.  That says a lot about unemployment in Bangladesh.

    It certainly is easier for the corporate class to be glib about those who allegedly are so much different from we are.
