How Genocide was Defined

Genocide Explained | Norman Naimark and Lex Fridman

Sort of shows you we still haven't developed a proper term for it, and it's still going on. I guess expand the definition instead of coming up with a new term. I tend to prefer new terms because it helps educate folks on the change in thinking - same reason the wokeists pump garbage words into the language nonstop for their own reasons.

fun fact: Canada lobbied hard to keep the UN from defining Cultural Genocide because they were in the middle of doing one.

It wouldn't surprise me - but do you have a source or citation?

I don't have a deep dive of what happened & the best summary I've seen is behind a paywall but you can search it up...

Also, in 1951 the US with some help from UK went to great lengths to prevent a case being brought to the UN for genocide against black people that the accusors argued was still happening at the time.

I'm going to be lazy like Daft Cunt and just repeat that it wouldn't surprise me but without a source of citation, given the fact that you're the one who said it, it doesn't mean much does it?

LOL - I hope you only use this site for practice. You're extremely easy to manage Dan - as a Spiked Nation admin you should be capable of pasting a link into a comment window. It's REALLY bizarre that you will do everything except that while making a claim. You even posted a picture of a national post article, and there's a LINK shown in the picture - why don't you just post that link here? So weird.

You haven't provided one. You just posted a link to the wikipedia entry on epistemology.
