There are many reasons for the so called lack of outrage.
Lack of familiarity with the culture.
For that matter, over familiarity. Burn out, if you will. How many times have we heard: "Explosions rocked downtown Bagdhad early this morning...early reports say as many as *** may have been killed, and many more injured.", in the past decade plus?
I call it the "what else is new" syndrome. ...and we all suffer from it to some degree or another.
...and you're smart enough to come up with other equally plausible reasons that have nothing what so ever to do with any form of bigotry.
Is there some bigotry? Sure. But it's hardly the main reason.
