So old news, If your into pop culture I am sure you have herd about this Kony 2012 video, at 82 million views currently.
High tech eh? Interesting this should all surface just before campaign time eh?
Now at first I watched this video and I thought..wait a minute they are trying to motivate people for violence, thats a bit suspicious, but I tried to keep an open mind. I remember this story from a decade or so ago as being legit, so I did some research to see what people in Uganda are actually saying.
As it turns out this kony character is actually not even in Uganda anymore, he left 15 years ago, and he doesn’t have a child army. So regardless of that its true, koney did terrible things and invisible children organization has a good mission. So why should this go unpunished, regardless if it was 15 years ago right?
Well, because The LRA guilty of the same things we accuse Koney of is now being armed to go after koney, because it is in the past. Yet again we pretend to care about Africa only before it was only hollywood, now the government is capitalizing on this with their new propaganda weapon facebook they are now selling weapons to Uganda. There is nothing we can do about the past but there is a lot we can do about the current situation in Africa if we really cared, but we don’t, the government especially doesn’t. Need I remind you of sudan, darfur, chad, ruwanda, ethiopia…need I go on? Africa long ago recognized we don’t care, especially governments do not care about them, the only solution is for them to unite as a people and fight their own battles it seems as we only capitalize on their suffering tragically. A prime example of how governments do not work in the best interest of people, Africa.
