Thread Name: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
Subject: RE: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
Carol C - I, too, would not want the U.S. to lead an initiative involving Sudan. I think it will take an international initiative but I would like to see the U.S. provide more in the way of media awareness and humanitarian aid. I do think, ignoring this problem smacks of racism.

Is it better to bring democracy to our 'Aryan' brothers than to provide protection for 'black' Africans who are being slaughtered by their own government? Is it better to protect our supply of oil or provide food, water and medicine to Haitian who have been devastated by a natural disaster?

I weep for the America that was once the champion of the oppressed.

Under George Bush, America has become the oppressor. A greedy, self-serving nation of racists.
