According to World Without Genocide, “over 480,000 people have been killed, and over 2.8 million people are displaced.”(1) These statistics show that not only have many people gotten killed but the genocide has caused 2.8 million people to abandon their home. The conflict in Darfur is clearly a genocide because it falls under the definition of genocide which includes killing or targeting a specific group of people because of racial or social difference. A quote from Human Rights Watch states how women have to face the genocide every day, “at least 221 women and girls were raped in Tabit over 36 hours…” (1) 221 women in 36 hours means about 6 women were raped an hour. The mass rape of women and girls in Darfur have lead to more people with AIDS and is clearly a method of genocidal torture towards women and girls. In the Darfur conflict, only Darfurian women are being raped therefore it falls under the category of “causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group”(Prevent genocide international, 1) which is one of the categories that classifies a genocide according to the United Nations.

Emmett was left mutilated and horrendous looking for all of the world to see when his mother decided to have an open-coffin funeral. News of Emmett’s story spread through the nation like a forest fire, outraging and devastating people all over, saying how brutal the murder was, or how it wasn’t brutal enough. Emmett’s trial took place less than 2 weeks after he’d been killed, and somehow his trial was more unfair than his death. During trial, Mr. Breland harassed Till’s Uncle Mose, “And yet you could see clearly, clearly enough to accuse to white men of murder, to claim that the men on your porch were Mr. Bryant and Mr. Milam over there… No problem with white folks, yet there you sit accusing two of our upstanding white citizens of barging into your home in the middle of the night, pointing a gun and a flashlight in your face, and hauling off your nephew”(170/171). Even though Bryant and Milam both admitted to kidnapping Emmett, the possibility of the two men not even being there to take Emmett is beyond irrational, even when both men stated their names at Moses 's door.
