Have you not read up on kony 2012 though homie? It's pretty obvious why people are salty. You might be thinking, so what at the end of the day the intentions are right, nigs should stop over thinking it and criticizing it, a helping hand is a helping hand. Shit isn't that simple though, if kony was actually going to help I would be down, but theres so much real shit you can do in the world to help people, why choose an organization that will give your money to another corrupt group, why choose to help through an organization that only gives 31% of the donations, why choose to help through an organization with a history of fuckery, why choose to help through an organization that is so unlikely to reach their goal, and if they do it will accomplish NOTHING? These are the facts, im not happy about them, but its real. If you're really about that why don't you get hands on and volunteer at some schools or take a community service trip instead of throwing your money down the drain blindly?
K, you make a valid point, I aint no illiterate niga, Iv done the research, heard the debates and concluded that i aint advocating the tactics of the KONY12 campaign to make gwap through merchandise and other bullshit from this niga killin little kids.
But you cant fault their social media tactics, which i do agree with. Through 1 viral video, not only do people know where Uganda is on a map! but they spread awareness of what else is also going on with other organisations and other causes.
Damn! can't you see now how charities like Oxfam and Barnardos will benefit from this? Now other charities be usin Kony12 as a platform on how best to raise awareness for their own campaigns.
This is the advantage of Kony12 which other nigas cant see. through the positive and negative criticism and the power of the web, people in the future will do their own research to help a campaign of their choice. This was not the case in the past, people didnt discuss this shit, they saw a charity and helped without having informed knowledge
Im still backing this campaign cause this niga Kony needs face up to his crimes.
This niga is no different to other men who have been convicted for war crimes. Saddam Hussein, Slobodan Milosevic, Nazi officials in the Nuremburg trail, Jean kambanda ect. Yet so many have not stood trail or been caught.
This is why the Kony campaign is useful as now the international community cant ignore this campaign and hopefully help get him and other people indicted by the ICC to stand trail sooner rather than later.
I lost someone close to me but they never caught the murderer, so this shit hit me emotionally. this is why i dont give a fuck about merchandise or all the other bullshit as long as victims get their own peace of mind.
