I'm Not Yawning...
"For decades,
whenever the topic of genocide has come up, the response has been, 'Never again.'
Yet right now, the government of Sudan is engaging in genocide against three large African tribes in its Darfur region here. Some 1,000 people are being killed a week, tribeswomen are being systematically raped, 700,000 people have been driven from their homes, and Sudan's
(Homes they've been in for G E N E R A T I O N S) Army is even bombing the survivors. And the world yawns.... " - Nicholas Kristoff, Columinst (NYT)

    It's a damned shame, but as long as we have the big first workld governements like we do, genocide in the African nations will continue. We just havea to do our small part to help

    Thanks for this sis... what a shame. A SHAME.

    Yes, I'm glad whites are speaking out about it but more Black celebs need to do even more.

    These are OUR people.

    Thanks time and time again for visiting my blog. I appreciate it!

    That's how it is when you don't have oil, "no one" (that is the governments that can help)sees the pain and suffering.

    damn damn DAMN.

    i read somewhere last year that there was more coverage of the darfur catastrophy on a one hour episode of e.r. than there was on the network news from all three major channels COMBINED. that right there is just proof of how worthless a black person's life is to those in power in the u.s.

    We have 50+ soldiers dying each day in the war, yet people are killing each other. I think about this on a daily basis. This was brought to my attention when Oprah had a show on this. She spoke about the night walkers. So on a daily basis while we are working, they are walking.
