Thank you for posting this—it’s incredibly important that the incoming administration is reminded, every time they turn around, that ending the genocide in Darfur needs to be a Day One priority. It will also be critical for everyone to return to and vote in Round 2, so that this idea makes it into the top ten.

Please stop the madness. People all over the world have had to suffer. No one suffers like the people of Africa. From the time of the Atlantic slave trade it has been a downhill role for people of dark skin. Please stop the madness. We are all God’s children.
