Martinique: Reaction to mtvU's “Darfur is Dying” Game

Martinique-based Le Blog de [Moi] reacts to “Darfur is Dying,” an mtvU online simulation game featuring a family attempting to flee Darfur. The game is designed to raise consciousness about the hardships in Darfur but the blogger is not pleased (Fr): “Where is the world going? I know we have to talk about Darfur but does the end justify the means? I ask myself… I ask you… Is the video arcade on domestic violence next? On rape? On the Shoah? (…) I mean, it's better to do something than nothing at all… apparently.”
