For you who doesn't know what a genocide is, it's an extermination of a national, racial, political, etc group. Today during school, 2 students showed a slide show about the genocide in Durfur. It was horrific, you can see people that has their skin just stuck to their skeleton, so their bones are quite visible. This genocide also includes rape and murder many children and women in this area, they also send these horse riders to go to a village and just slaughter no matter what the reason, both children and adults had to suffer the sight of their loved ones being burned in a fire. I can't remember a lot of numbers, but if I remember correctly, according to them, averagly, 14 people in Durfur die every hour. I just want you guys opinion on this subject...and i'm sorry I made it so long...

people who do/did not experience it first hand tend to ignore it.

problem is people are all well and good saying they are going to sort it but what have they done? you can be some hippy bitch and say yeah we will stand up but not much a 16 or 18 year old can do who hasnt even finished school. I mean whast going onis horrible and is a gross misconduct of human rights but people on nthe internet saying this is awful aint gonna stop it. Tbh the sad thing is within 4/5 months it will be forgotten about and hardly covered like the aids issue and poverty issue in africa. I mean has these real world issues been braught up as much since say live 8. Tbh i would have to say no. its no global warming and once they have sucked that issue dryit will be another or maybe return to an older issue for a bit. But i dont see the point in posting this because people will still comment that it is horrible and saying it so they look liek they care when by 2mrw when they wake up they will preoccupy them selves with their own troubles. its one of humanitys greatest gifts to be ignorant to problems. sigh

That is so true. We only help who might be a potential profit, and that saddens me greatly.

@ Kyocool Where do you get this stuff?

It's allot like what happend in Rwanda like... 10 yrs ago or something. So sad... Anyone seen "hotel rwanda" or "shooting dogs" ?

Stuff like this makes me really mad. That's why I'm going to either be a politician working with foreign affairs, or I'm going to work in the UN:) Sometimes, the world really sucks.

We need to stop fighting off violence with violence. It just creates more hate and anger. Look at sri lanka. There's a genocide there too even though no-one wants to admit it. One of my best friends are tamil, and she can't even go back to her home country for a vistit, because it's too dangerous. She could end up dead. So unfair...
