Evil can come in many different forms. Desmond Tutu claims this to be as he once said, “When people think of the sort of things that happen when genocide happens, it's again not people who are intrinsically evil.” This quote by Desmond Tutu is a definition of evil because not everybody was born being evil it depends on a persons real nature. When many people think of evil they think of the people that they do not like or do not care for. Without people being evil are world would not be as it is today because we have overcame many of those challenges that it has brought to us. Even though the Holocaust was horrible, people may debate that the Darfur Genocide was worse.
Many people do not know where Darfur is. Could it be in Europe? Maybe in Africa? Darfur may seem to be a normal region. Darfur is located in a region of Sudan which is about the size of France(5).

Also, they had right tensions between Arab herders and Non- Arab framers(4). Later after that tensions started Janyaweed tried taking over because the government was not willing to address the human rights in the region and was not taken the necessary steps to restrict these activities. The Janyaweed that took over were armed militia supported by the Sudanese government to carry out the genocide(2). The Janyaweed entered many villages on horses and destroyed many houses and buildings(2).
