Why is Black Lives Matter silent on the genocide in Africa?

Captured: Felicien Kabuga is awaiting trial over the slaughter in Rwanda

Felicien Kabuga, an 87-year-old Rwandan businessman, is currently awaiting trial at the International Criminal Court in The Hague for his part in one of the most gruesome massacres of the 20th century.

Rwanda is a small country in central Africa, but in just 100 days in 1994 members of the Hutu ethnic majority murdered as many as 800,000 people, mostly of the Tutsi minority. On top of that, tens of thousands of other people suffered horrific injuries.

In preparation for the atrocity half-a-million machetes were imported into the country in the previous year, one for every three adult Hutus.
