11 million were killed in the holocaust. Of which 6 million were jews.
Khmer Rouge ...about 2 milllion
It's interesting that you only seem to accurately list those in which the victims were white.
It's also interesting that several examples on your list were not really acts of genocide - Uganda, for instance.
Your figure of 3 milion for Nigeria is entirely without basis - nor is there genocide in Nigeria.
A marginal call for genocide ince the perpetrators were of the same ethnicity as the victims.
Genocide does not equal mass murder.
I'm a bit confused, then. I thought the term genocide included killing those of opposing religious/political beliefs as well.
This is actually my field of expertise as a journalist, so I'm going to claim I actually know what I am talking about on this one!
Mot experts consider genocide to be a deliberate attempt to wipe a people off the map. So what we consider 'a people' could be defined in several different ways.
But it's usually considered that it is one group (i.e. Germans, Australians) attacking another group (Namibian Herero, Tasmanian Aborigines).
I do not believe Stalin, Mao nor Pol Pot committed genocide, because they did not (by and large) target specific ethnicities, religions or tribes. They committed mass murder.
However, Rwanda did experience genocide (Hutu against Tutsi) in 1994, and there have been several other instances in this century.
Yes they did, you ignorant dope.
Pol Pot targeted the educated, certain ethnic groups, and religious minorities.
Mao targeted several ethnic groups, and of course religious minorities.
Stalin targeted religious minorities and specific ethnic groups and nationalities.
Crack open a book once in a while, dopey.
