Kony

How do people on this board feel about this issue? Obviously we can agree that the man's an asshole, but do people on here support the Invisible Children Campaign? Here are a few of the arguments I've heard for and against, without. Delving too deep into details:

FOR: This group has been successful at instigating official government actions against kony. They appear to be relatively grass-roots, including people from many walks of life and appealing to the idea of a mass movement. They are asking for volunteers to take actions (such as wheatpasting and other means of promotion) not just donate money. They are gaining huge popularity, and may be the only group with a chance of pulling this off.

AGAINST: Invisible Children has a tax record that seems shows only a small percentage of their earnings going to actual Ugandan aid. This whole facebook-oriented, made-for-tv movement has been proven ineffective by the occupiers. Kony is not the only, or even the worst war criminal in Africa. Kony has largely ceased to be a threat to the African people since the US pushed him into hiding.

What do, cmhwak?

Funniest shit is how much the Ugandan people, journalists and random citizens who happen to be on jewtub alike, hate this campaign.

It is incredibly laden with white man's burden colonialist/Orientalist bullshit. The video and campaign take the fucking agency of those who are actually involved in the conflict away. The cultured, middle class, well off white man is NOT always the person with the answers who needs to come sweeping in to try and fix a problem that he barely understands. This entire campaign basically reduces Ugandan womyn into The Raped and Ugandan kids into The Abducted. OBVIOUSLY they can't take care of themselves or do anything for themselves, so we gotta jump in and do everything for those silly Africans with their starvation and famine and disease and civil war.

I just think people need to read way more about this and realize how skewed the picture IC painted in that video actually is. Understand the situation, the context and history of this issue you think will be solved with 30 dollar action kits, and then try and figure out how you can *actually* help. LRN YOSELF, SON.

Also, why Uganda and Kony? What about Liberia? What about Sierra Leone? What about South Sudan/Darfur? All places that deserve recognition and "awareness" spread about them. Why choose specifically Kony over these other problem areas that also need help in recovery and such? These are questions people really need to ask for themselves before they act. How, why, and what you think you will do ALL matter.

My 2 cents.
