Seriously please don't support Invisible Children INC. Anymore....
Not only are their spending habits as a non profit horrible (Mainly cause the organization has so far only been successful as sending rich white kids to Africa)
But If you watch their first documentary, its basically a bunch of privileged kids running into Africa to try and “Save” Africans.
Which putting aside the orientalism and blatant racism aside, the problem with that is they have NO CLUE what they are doing. The end up using American sympathy to pressure the Ugandan government to try and meet with Kony to work out a truce, he agrees, and they celebrate as saviors of Africa. The Ugandan government would not have done that had a bunch of white kids caused such a ruckuses, Kony ended up using the cease fire as a way to build up more troops, and shift his military, resulting in the rape, killing, and kidnapping of thousands of people. Their second move was to pressure the OBama admin to send troops there… which derailed a second peace process and resulted once again in the killing and raping of hundreds of people in retaliation.
If you have anything to add to this, or would like to correct me on anything please feel free to hit me up.
