Got it, I figured I misunderstood your original meaning.Places we come from, I meant Canada, America, UK. That's the connection I was making. Not Somalia/Sland.
It's natural to feel more for your people back home, that's another disconnect that plagues Somali people despite being mostly homogeneous. But for some reason I separate people raised in the diaspora and the ones back home. Their deaths register to me far greater than someone dying over there, whether they belong to my tribe or not. But back home where its more neutral and all things equal, yeah MJs over anyone lol.
I think you misunderstood my meaning on the second part. I wasn't suggesting that I feel more for those from the same tribe as me. More about how I can sympathise more with innocent civilians than I do with those killed with because of their celebrity/power status. In other words I feel a much greater sympathy for ordinary people killed in a Xamar bombing than a Singer or Politician. It's irrational I know, but that's often where my my immediate sympathies lay.
