The Nuba People of Sudan: Black, Christian, and Under Attack

By Rob Schwarzwalder

The government of Sudanese president Omar Hassan al-Bashir, a recognized international war criminal, has instituted a campaign of “ethnic cleansing, mass murder and rape, all carried out by uniformed soldiers of the Khartoum government” (Source). In tandem with this effort, al-Bashir is having his air force conduct bombing raids of refugee camps, placing thousands at risk of being killed or maimed.

Many of the Nuba are Christians. They are also dark-complected, which in the Arab supremacist philosophy of al-Bashir makes for a deadly combination.
