that Kony video going viral is quite largely a slick white guilt alleviating arm chair activist gesture devoid of any meaningful analysis

Where are the viral videos denouncing the violence committed by Western colonialism and imperialism?
Ayesha A. Siddiqi @AyeshaASiddiqi
giving Western powers the authority to militarize an African nation is criminal, imperialist intervention masked as liberation is criminal
Ayesha A. Siddiqi @AyeshaASiddiqi
the Kony video barely distinguishes the LRA from African politics at large, and perpetuates a White savior complex

if you're genuinely interested in whats happening in Uganda first read a couple history books, don't share in neo liberal gimmicks

Ugandans may not have readily available graphic design tech for a video as stunning as the KONY one, but I'd rather hear from them

America's interests do not necessarily overlap with Uganda's currying public favor for imperialist intervention is irresponsible

a moral imperative to intervene does not = the moral authority to intervene

you know who's less famous than Joseph Kony? the tacit support of Western corporations and governments for dictators around the world
