Americans love their animals so much that they have dedicated an entire network to them, largely focused on the welfare of their favorite Pets. An entire network, where Americans get to show their undying love and affection for Animals. Yet, there is an active genocide taking place, and it barely gets a few seconds of coverage in an entire week. Something is wrong here.
Can we get a Darfur channel? "All Darfur, All The Time" would be a good slogan. Since Americans want to ignore the genocide in Africa, perhaps we could bring the genocide into the homes of Americans. Maybe then Americans would care as much about humans as they do about animals. Just maybe. I don't put a lot of stock in that, because I don't have much faith in Americans. But it just might work.
