Fear and loathing in Rwanda

Steve Sailer writes about the inability of white liberals to accept the reality of tribal differences in Rwanda:

Further, "Hotel Rwanda" is less depressing than it sounds, offering one of the few Rwandan stories with a happy ending. On-screen gore is minimized, allowing the film a PG-13 rating.

Unfortunately, the screenplay aims at self-absorbed white liberals who think all Africans look alike and that white racism is the root of all evil. The script even claims that it's merely a white myth that Tutsis tend to be taller than Hutus, asserting that the Belgian imperialists arbitrarily assigned those identities to random Rwandans. Yet, soon the Hutu Power radio station is broadcasting the prearranged code to begin exterminating the Tutsis: "Cut down the tall trees."

Apparently, liberals believe that the Hutus and the Tutsis did not notice any physical differences between the two groups until the Belgians came and pointed them out.
