By the fifteenth century the inhabitants had organized into a number of kingdoms. In the nineteenth century, Mwami (king) Rwabugiri of the Kingdom of Rwanda conducted a decades-long process of military conquest and administrative consolidation that resulted in a the kingdom coming to control most of what is now Rwanda. The colonial powers, first Germany and then Belgium, allied with the Rwandan court, allowing it to conquer the remaining autonomous kingdoms along its borders and racializing the system of minority Tutsi dominance created under Rwabugiri.you say made to believe, therefore what is the real story and who has it
And as far as Watutsi as we remeber that tribe as children in the 60s from black history class, the main feature about them we were told is that they were mostly Wilt Chamberlands hieght
as far as complexion, all of the picture we saw of Watusi's in our books , they were the complexion of Curtis Mayfield
Now you mention the white man to blame
that is like saying that we are inferior and i dont buy that at all
no white man can control hundreds of thousands of Black folks to go against thier basic common sense and morality,
we are not some guinea pigs in a cage or microbes in a test tube that they can experiment on and manipulate
especialy not 50 years after the liberation struggle from European colonization
so when it is said "soon the killing began" that does seem to be a bit of a stretch
and what is not clear is that here are these 2 groups of peopel, to the average black American look like husband and wife, father and son, sistere and sister, aunt and uncle
and both opressed by the same white man
no matter how much extra scraps one gets from the table then the other, but both catching the same hell
and when this white man leaves, there is some "mechanism that forces them to still dawg thier own people rather then unite?
I dont get it?
here we battle each other and fratricide and hate becuase
we do not have our own language or any aspect whatsoever of our culture, that is why some small aspect of it like the Nguzo Saba would aleviate that
but where folks not only have the advantage of their language and thier culture,
and the additional Blessing of being on their ancestral soil which gives a people power, why the hate?
A convergence of anti-colonial, and anti-Tutsi sentiment resulted in Belgium granting national independence in 1961.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Rwanda
The Genocide occured over 30 years later,
so realy what whites were there to cause these folks who look like family to all of a sudden start this on each other?
If a man and his cousin are both drunk and having a heated arguement, and a stranger comes by, that doesnt look like them, doesnt talk like them, but puts a gun in one man's hand
common sense would say that the man would take the gun and point it at the interloper stranger and then get over his difference with his cousin
