David Edwards (Crushing Fallujah, 2) does a masterful job analysing how the western corporate media treats western/white victims of violence and everyone else. This differential treatment, where non-white people are still regarded as subhuman (Nazi ideology "untermenschen"), unworthy of even momentary pity and compassion (except when it suits the powers that be politically), has been deeply rooted in our world civilization for at least 500 years. I am increasingly coming to think it is the frame that most effectively explains the world as it is today.
There never was a post-colonialism. The colourline -- global apartheid -- is here and growing, regardless of how multicultural western societies get.
