Bangladesh Myanmar Attacks

A Rohingya Muslim child, who crossed over from Myanmar into Bangladesh, plays in front of her makeshift tent at Jamtoli refugee camp in Ukhiya, Bangladesh, Friday, Nov. 17, 2017.

This horror continues without abate. 

In Burma, the word Rohingya is not meant to exist, there is instead the word "Bengali" (="nigger").

In that word is concentrated all the mindfulness of the planet at this historical moment.

It's been a long time since the dehumanization and elimination of a human genetic strain engaged humans of another strain in such prolonged, dedicated activity.
