The guy who took the picture actually has a pretty sad story. Google him before you think he's a disgusting person for not helping the child.

Nope, it's extremely funny.
The fact that the photographer was such a pussy after taking it, and the fact that a vulture ate a little black boy.

HAHAHAHAHA.

He actually shooed away the vulture, and the girl made it to the refugee camp. However, it's unknown what happened to her afterwards.

Anyway, people should stop being so judgmental. None of us know the actual circumstances.

Ok look, I'm not trying to be a douchebag, but I couldn't help it. I actually laughed, I know it's sad but damn it I can't help myself. It's just funny for some reason and this time I actually feel bad for it.

The fact that africans can survive to such a level is astounding. I'd probably die long before I could reach such a level of body mass. They truly are genetically superior to us.

You are right and wrong. They survive like that because they were used to it, and they have a strong will to live. It's really sad, but true.

Since they multiply so fast, maybe they'll be immune to AIDS in ten or so generations. Or at least partially immune.

Damn, it's like death immunity.

If he gave her a cheeseburger, the girl would have died, since her body wasn't accustomed to nutrition.

What a dick.

I actually read somewhere about this exact picture that the photographer was with officers that instructed him not to interfere as he was on UN basis or something.

Man, I really wish that kid would have lived...
He's gone through so much, I'd really like to hear his take on near death and the inhuman amounts of pain and suffering he went through, humanity needs to learn.

I don't blame myself though, and anyone who says this is my fault can enjoy a rectum full of boot.

He killed himself because of all the horrible things he witnessed during his work. That and his friend died from a gunshot wound during their work in Africa.

A. he was 5
B. probably uneducated
C. has lived in unspeakable conditions that no child should ever have to go through.

It's not so simple, plus a charity in Africa is like a homeless man putting change in another man's cup.

It's terrible and everything, but those who we unrightfully enslaved are now living fulfilling and sound lives that they wouldn't have had in Africa.

I'm pretty sure he was talking about the photographer... not the dying kid....

But yes, portions of Africa are pretty FUBAR, I believe it has a lot do to with politics and such- aid money being stolen, and help being refused and whatnot.

This. Her body would reject the food.

It's an incredibly moving picture, but I wouldn't say it's the saddest of the century. I've seen far worse (mostly ones of the Israelis bombing the fuck out of the Palestinians).

Yeah, I saw that on Snopes (you can see really ANY popular online photo at Snopes) and read about how it was so depressing. I am glad I was able to confirm that it was real before taking part in the mourning that made this. Do vultures eat people anyway? I suppose they would simply eat any dead bodies that they could find. Africa is the most famine stricken and poorest continent in the world that people should be more aware of.

That is pretty damn sad. To know that where I live I could have something to eat as soon as I got hungry and in other parts of the world children starve to death on a daily basis. I could see how actually seeing that stuff could depress a man pretty badly.
