    Most people today wouldn't want to get involved with what probably appeared like something domestic. Even the police when called to the home didn't investigate very intensely. Ramsey without much thought for personal interest went to help.

    It had a good beat I personally can only understand 1 sentence in songs anyway . Auto tune can make anyone sound like they can sing well.

    I think a little comic relief in the midst otherwise horrible news can be healthy.

Nothing makes people tune out faster than excessive complaining.
    I think we'll have to agree to disagree on that. In my experience, just as many people dismiss/minimize concerns of prejudice as voice/exaggerate concerns about prejudice. And the thing about saying that people "cry too much or inappropriately" is that such a judgement is entirely subjective. Moreover, when people do what you perceive as "excessive complaining", it doesn't necessarily weaken their cause so much as alienates some people. In fact, oftentimes, the people who feel that others are "crying too much" end up being the pariahs. That's what happened to people who felt pro-Civil Rights individuals "cried too much", what's happening to people who think pro-SSM individuals are "too sensitive" and what may happen to those of us who feel that people who take issue with "retard" complain excessively.

    Basically you're saying that those who dismiss concerns about prejudice cancel out those who exaggerate? And where the line is between the two is subjective?

    People who complain excessively do weaken their cause if they alienate part of the population. Though the bigots also loose any fringe support from the mainstream when they espouse their ignorance. So I have to agree with you that both ends do seem to balance out leaving the majority more aware of the real situation. Good analyses.
