BoingBoing posts a snide headline about India's $5 million aid for Katrina relief and this makes some bloggers unhappy and understandably so.
Club810 smells the "R" word, though he is not sure. And isn't that the worst kind of a racist dig at someone? But do BoingBoing's headline and Bruce Sterling's post smack of "elitist snobbery"? And is this "a subtle dig at the Indian people"?
Another blog titled "Random Signs of Intelligence" has similar thoughts. He urges Xeni of BoingBoing to "knock off the smart-ass remarks".
Just in case you didn't notice, BoingBoing's post is based on a post in Bruce Sterling's blog which refers to a report in - guess what - TIMES OF INDIA, thereby making this whole business far less important than getting that $5 million to the hurricane victims.
Personally, I do not think BoingBoing would stoop to such depths.
