Over the next few weeks, we will begin to
discuss more and more about the
upcoming election and the
issues facing our communities. The crisis in Darfur closely
parallels the Holocaust and many other
tragedies that we have discussed in class. For this reason, I felt a
bit conflicted about posting
Darfur is Dying here on the class site. I was not sure if it was
appropriate to look at the crisis as a "game" ... just like I was unsure
if it was appropriate to examine the X-Men as a metaphor for the
Holocaust ... but I thought it best to
err on the side of giving you all more information rather than less ...
let's be sure to discuss this in class!
