Western Burma in Conflict: Rights, Reconciliation, and the Rohingya

Posted: 07/16/2012 1:43 pm

Two months of horrific escalations of violence have engulfed western Burma's Rakhine State. While the conflict lurches between reproach and revenge, the media seems to be at a crossroads between better reportage and being forgotten by the drive of the news cycle. The violence threatens to extinguish the tentative embers of hope that have been kindled by the last year's incomplete reform process. Read more

The world to interfere in extermination

By Habib,

The word 'kalar' or 'kala' is a pejorative context to refer  foreigner particularly to Indiana. It is a common ethnic slur that can be assimilated to "Negro" or “Nigger” in other term. This brings back to the time in USA where there was slavery and special laws for black people under severe oppression.

APARTHEID in South Africa

SLAVERY & RACISM in the USA

Hitler & Nazi extermination of the Jews
