Careless with Colored Conflicts
I was not aware of the $50 million that was supposed to go to the Darfur region that was cut from the Defense bill this past week. The unfortunate reality is that this is not surprising in the least bit. From the article:
“It is extraordinary that Congress, having described the killing in Darfur as “genocide,” should find it impossible to come up with $50 million to try to prevent it — this in a bill totaling $453 billion.”
It sickens me how “paralyzed” the U.S. is when dealing with conflicts in and among African Nations. We are so bold when the charge is “bringing democracy to the Middle East.” I digress. It can’t be because Americans are not interested in Black conflict. After all, G.W. is not a racist.
