Kony2012 Video: Invisible Children

Watch the Kony2012 Viral Video Calling Us All to Action

In this election year we've seen and are going to continue to see a lot of political signs in support of politicians on all sides of the spectrum. But there's one sign you're going to see plastered on walls, staked in the ground, and posted on Facebook this year that's calling people to recognize not a Republican or Democrat, but a rebel group leader in Uganda: Kony2012, a campaign to make one of the most horrendous war criminals in world history, Joseph Kony, famous enough to get him arrested by the end of 2012. 

The powerful video above explains the almost 10-year plight of the Invisible Children organization, which began as just three college guys making a documentary on the child soldiers of Uganda. The movie became a movement, and while the organization has made incredible strides over the years, this is the year they really give it their all to stop Joseph Kony, leader of the rebel group LRA, from abducting, killing, and raping the children in Uganda and other areas of Africa.

Invisible Children is targeting 20 culture makers and 12 policy makers to make Joseph Kony a household name so that the world will know who he is and what he's done, and it's already catching fire. Celebrities like Sean Combs, Kristen Bell, Sophia Bush, Rihanna, and Zooey Deschanel have been tweeting their support. Check out the video above to see what the hype is all about.

Anyone who has jumped on the white man's burden-bandwagon KONY 2012, please take a second to read this link. I know it's lovely to watch a documentary about three white Westerners trying to rescue all of Africa, but let me tell you something - it was the West that destroyed, pillaged, raped, enslaved, divided, conquered, and carved up Africa. Those evil wrongdoings won't be repaired by three useless middle-class white American liberals going to Uganda advocating Western intervention. If you want another Iraq with over a million dead, fine. But don't pretend you're being compassionate because you're really not. You're supporting imperialism and white supremacy. Simple. http://visiblechildren.tumblr.com.nyud.net/
