Hollywood's compassion for a group of people only extends as far as they can use them.
Them having a benefit for us does nothing for their image socially or politically. Haiti? Sure. New Orleans or another country like Japan? Absolutely.
But for the most part, southerners' political standing is incongruous with Hollywood, and they can't much mileage out of helping a group of mostly white conservatives amongst their peers.
What they don't realize, however, that the south is immensely diverse. However, it helps them to compartmentalize and marginalize us...they'll save their telethon for a more worthy cause -- like raising money for someone half way around the globe.
