The word “Janjaweed” in Arabic translations means, “A man with a gun on a horse”. The Janjaweed men primarily came from “Arab” nomadic tribes who were always at odds with the “African” farmers. The government-supported Janjaweed militia were responsible for most of the atrocity crimes. Beginning in 2003, the Janjaweed militia began destroying villages and towns the people of African tribes occupied to chime into the uprising. An estimate of 400,000 people were killed in 2003 directly or indirectly from the attacks.
For instance, Mrs. Polgreen writes, “Since 2003, the United Nations estimates that at least 300,000 civilians have been killed in Darfur” Basically, the arab african muslims don’t like the black african muslims, because of that the arab african muslims are killing the black african muslims in great amount of numbers.

This caused a major issue, poverty, which lead to an even greater issue, social unrest. The whole country became a riot. First it started with peaceful protests and then people began being killed.
African Americans were treated poorly during the reign of the Jim Crow laws. During this time, race riots were common in cities all over the nation. From direct-action protests and boycotts to armed self-defense, from court cases to popular culture, freedom was in the air in ways that challenged white authority and even contested established black ways of life in moments of crisis ( Baldwin 1)..

Abstract The Rwandan Genocide consisted of the slaughter of over eight hundred thousand African people from April of 1994 until June of the same year. Conflicts, primarily economic and cultural differences, between the Hutu and Tutsi peoples forced the country into genocide. An entire country was separated by ethnicity as neighbors, friends, and family turned against each other. After the capital of Kigali was captured, the government collapsed and the genocide finally came to an end. Since then President Paul Kagame continues to run the country with a strong authoritative hand, but victims and perpetrators are working and living peacefully and the economy is seeing rapid growth.

Although almost a year part these two battles are both equally bad and very devastating to people all around the world and family and friends.
