How come when a nation that is majority white is attacked everyone around the world changes their profile pics to their flag but when something similar happens in a country where its not majority white, it doesn't even get any sympathy?

How long has Facebook been doing the flag thing? Last time they had the colored lines for gay pride, and I also saw some profiles with flags from India. If this is something recent, maybe that's why.0

Most developed nations are majority-white, and there there is usually shock when a tragedy happens in a developed nation, as such incidents are uncommon. Almost every developing nation, however, is not white. And, it isn't surprising when violent tragedies happen there, because those are common place there, and they are thus less surprising.1
