Ever heard of child soldiers?

  1. Well, what’s the difference between this black child soldier with a gun, and white children being given guns and taught how to use them, and seen brandishing their guns in open spaces here in the U.S?

    This black child is told that the gun is for self defense against their enemies, so are the children given guns by NRA family members told too. Just because there’s no visibly physical war here in the U.S, as we see in some other already war ridden countries, doesn’t mean there’s no war going on here. It’s just that the war is being fought in a subtle way; by pent up emotions, as we hear hateful rhetoric sounded everywhere, with flaring tempers, and at the slightest provocation people (even kids) use the gun as the only resolution to their grievances!

  2. Indeed — whether he is christian or muslim,  black or white,  socialist or capitalist doesn’t matter. The picture depicts a child as a knowing trained killer.  

    The fact that really young children can be trained to be killers is something about the human race that we can’t afford to forget.

    Though, when it gets down to it, I’m not so sure that the practice of taking an 18-year old and training them for war is much different.
