    Most of this forum could care less, because Indians (dots, not feathers, Baba) are brown people and don't matter. It always amazes me how little we care about the rest of the world unless there is something in it for oil.

    You care so much.....what have you done to help?
    I didn't see lots of dots (your term) during Katrina.

    Race card, race card --everything is about race. Even a Cyclone is related to racism ---very sick !!

    If you go to another country, you'll see disaster coverage from all over the world, not just our own problems. That says a lot about the self-centeredness of Americans. The simple fact is that most of us don't care when it's someone else in some far-off land. India isn't exactly in a financial position to be able to help Katrina victims, moreluck. And I put my money where my mouth is. I donate to World Concern, among other charitable organizations.

    I see lot of thinly veiled racism in Current Events, whether it's attacking Mexican illegals, the president, or other groups. It hasn't been too long since I've seen the cymbal-clapping chimp on here in reference to Obama. Hey, moreluck. What would happen if illegals didn't come here anymore? Your favorite restaurant couldn't find help, most crops wouldn't get harvested, and the prices of produce and eating-out would skyrocket.

    Do you care about the people in India? Do you donate to international aid organizations?

    What if only 1 cent of every dollar goes to actually help anyone and the rest goes to administrative costs ? Have you checked out your charity?

    Thats offensive. You know darn well our entire system, yours included, of customer service representatives are in jeopardy.

    Yes, I have. World Concern is legitimate.

    Sure we care about this Super Cyclone in India, there might be some Americans visiting there.

    ​Fact: 1 American Life = 4,286.52 Indian Lives. FACT!

    The number on the right side of the equation increases if the Indians are not of the Brahmin Caste.

    Fact: Dead in Katrina = 1836; Dead in Phailin = 18

    Heck of a job.

    I wonder if the people in Phailins path evacuated when they were asked to.

    it was/is pretty obvious that people in India are a lot smarter and motivated than most people in New Orleans.
    This just adds more proof.

    PS- When was the last time a call center was established in NOLA?

    Yeah, the people there didn't sit around waiting for someone to help them evacuate.....they moved their behinds themselves!!

    Cyclone Phailin: 500,000 homes evacuated as storm pounds India | World news |

    The final death toll is expected to climb, and parts of the cyclone-battered coast remain isolated by broken communication links and blocked roads. But initial indications were that the government's evacuation operation saved many lives.
