Know what charity is really? An expression of privilege and power, that's what. Why? Because the people in need will not survive without it, but the people giving can refuse to bestow their favors at any time and at no cost to them. (Never mind the many disempowered people who can't provide support because they're having trouble taking care of themselves.)
So go ahead. Give generously of your time and money. Open your homes and your hearts. Help the individual. Make yourself feel good. But if you don't also walk the talk of progressive taxation, affirmative action, universal healthcare, wage parity, and so forth, all you're truly doing is reinforcing the structures of systemic inequality that magnified the human suffering of this most recent tragedy.
And if perchance there's a Hell, I hope you stew there for eternity in the ichor of your own hypocrisy.
