In Response To: Re: [Crime] Congo (Dave Myers)
the fighting between the Hutu's and Tutsi's began after colonization by the Belgians and Germans in the late 1950's...
The 'rivalry' between the Hutu's and Tutsi's had been in existence long before the arrival of and colonization by the Eurpoeans, certainly long before the 20th century. That rivalry MAY have even played a prominent role in the matter of the ability of the Europeans to 'colonize' that area of Africa.
Just an opinion.
