Genocide involves the attempt to achieve the disappearance of a group by whatever means. It does not have to be violent, it could be a combination of policies that would lead to a certain group dying out.
~ Prime Minister of Australia 1975-1983 – Malcolm Fraser. “One Nation, One Notion”, The Age, 8 July 1997, p. A13.

    Here’s another…

    ‘The white race is the cancer of human history, it is the white race, and it alone – its ideologies and inventions – which eradicates autonomous civilizations wherever it spreads’.

    Susan Sontag (American Writer), Partisan Review, Winter 1967.

    Seems like the humans are going back in time, hate, killing,crude violence,torture, we must understand this ” What happen in the past, must be solve with peace and understanding”, we are civilized people, we can not repeat the same crimes of others, this kind of acts are take in us in to a lower condition like humans, we learn, hate is not the answer for the future, nobody owns the right to kill others just because the color of the skin.
    We must walk in to the future , we can’t go back , violence is not the reason for a better future.
