Just watched a film called «Shooting Dogs» – a BBC film about the genocide in Rwanda. I don´t know how to react really. I´ve seen it before in movies. I´ve seen it on the news. I´ve even heard personal survival stories from classmates. But I want to forget it every time. I want to forget the outrageous evil we humans are capable of. I want to forget the uselessness of the United Nations. I want to forget the rampant racism that decides what is important and what isn´t, who is important enough to live and who isn´t. And it is blatantly about skin colour.

I’m even going to add a little anger on the fact that we (we? who are we? a lot of people, I fear…) need white heroes to watch the film (thank you Hotel Rwanda for at least trying something else).

Meanwhile, in Darfur…
