The Arab Persecution of Blacks in Darfur

Since 2003, in the Darfur region of Sudan, the Sudanese Black people are being killed, raped and displaced systematically in what can be called nothing less than a genocide by the Arab-dominated Sudanese government. The actual atrocities of murder and rape are committed by the Sudanese army and its proxy – a militia group called Janjaweed.

It is estimated that over 100,000 people were killed each year since 2003. Yet, there is no condemnation in the Arab world of this wholesale killing of black people by the Arabs in Sudan. But look at the attention that Palestina gets from these Arab nations. Is it because the Palestinians are fellow Arabs and so their lives are more valuable than 100s of thousands of poor blacks that were killed, raped and displaced by the Arabs in Sudan ? This alone should bring to light the hypocrisy of the Arab nations.

I can not understand how this kind of racial discrimination and genocide by the Sudanese Arabs goes without wider condemnation that it deserves by the world media. I can not understand why the powerful black American groups have not taken up the cause of these Sudanese blacks who are being persecuted by the Arabs. I can not understand why there is no comprehensive discussion of Darfur issue in the UN.
