This is why I love Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt:

"People love hearing terrible details of news tragedies.
One, it's titillating like a horror movie.
Two, it makes them feel like a good person because they care about a stranger.
Three, it makes people feel safe that it did not happen to them."

It's probably one of those things that's easier to notice when you're tuned to it. I'm privileged, so maybe I'll notice it now. My wife is from Newfoundland -- the citizens of which were always the butt of jokes in my youth. I'm not even clear if Newfie is pejorative.
