OBVS DIDNT WATCH THE VIDEO
SMH... I watched the video. This is a good cause. However, this is another case of American naivete. We think by removing one man the entire problem stops. It's deeper than that. This is a cultural problem. Kony is certainly not alone in his regime either.
I hate to be that cynical nigga but the reality is this is going to be something white hipsters cling to for a couple months and nothing more will become of it. I wish this handsome casper nigga the best of luck though.
It just worries me when I see his face in a poster next to Osama Bin Laden (a CIA agent and myth invented to brainwash and scare Americans) and Hitler. Surely the comparisons are justified it's just very sensationalized and flashy and I hope this campaign doesn't become another failed example of groupthink and mindlessness and actually accomplishes something.
The problem is, if the US Govt. really cared they would've sent Special Forces and not advisors. Advisors don't do jack shit. They need to demand more than that, because places like Africa don't have any rules. It's no mans land.
Also, I love the fact this nigga is charging 30.00 for the kit. Genius. He's going to get rich off of these niggas. This reminds me of that bullshit several years ago with the concerts dedicating to ending global warming and they ended up making billions off of it and doing jack shit. Again, this is just hipster bullshit to make money. God bless this dude, but come on yall, don't be so naive.
Not saying this in an asshole tone, just straightforward, don't be a hipster. I get what you are saying, but be cynical of your own trend of thoughts too. I first heard about the child army in Uganda my freshman year of high school when all these white kids were hyped up on the Invisible Children movement, and that was 5 years ago. I don't think it will necessarily just be forgotten about. Not to mention I think it was just last year that the US actually did take some action about it (I can't remember what and I haven't watched the video yet).
Also, it's not just a cultural problem necessarily. Sometimes when you have as desperate a situation as the one the Ugandans live in, all it takes is one evil man to capitalize on it. Take Germany for example. Hitler rose to power because he unified and restored a country whose economy was in the shitter. He took Germany from being a country whose money was worth more as paper than as currency to being one of the world powers in 10 years, and the people loved him for that. He then used his power to commit genocide. After WWII, when he and his regime were wiped out, Germany went back to normal. Nazism didn't become a cultural thing; it basically just disappeared with Hitler.
