Author's POV+Purpose

  • The author's point of view is that its unfair that people didn't care about the attack in Kenya but they did care about the attack in Paris. In the article is said that "When the Paris attack happened people were posting photos on Facebook and twitter of them in front of the Eiffel tower or they were changing their profile picture to red,blue and white". Another part of the article it said that " Yet back in April there was almost nothing about it on Facebook and Twitter. There was no outpouring of sadness and support, as there was for paris". Also in the article it said "Not many Americans have traveled to Kenya or Beirut. For that reason it is understandable that Americans did not react as much to the killings in those places. However, that does not mean it is right for us to care less".

  •  I agree with the authors point of view. I agree because I think if the people cared so much about Paris they should care about the other attack even if they don't know anyone their.

  • The author's purpose is to inform. I know this because their is a heading and then information about that topic and also it is nonfiction.
