While democide is not really a new development,

it was never as big as it was in the 20th century.

The major offenders have been; USSR (61 million killed), Communist Chinese (38 million), Nazi Germany (20 million), Nationalist Chinese (10 million), Imperial Japan (six million), Cambodian communists (two million), Ottoman Turks (1.8 million), Vietnam (1.6), Polish communists (1.5 million), Pakistan (1.5 million), Yugoslav communists (one million.) There are a number of surprises on this list. Most people think the Nazis were the worst offenders, but they are really only number three. That's because the communists managed to hide their mass murders for most of the century, aided by the tendency of the free world media to believe a lot of the propaganda regarding the "Worker's Paradise".

Your Say

The greatest slaughters, the most horrific sufferings, tortures, and miseries were produced in the 20th century by atheist movements. Mind you atheists try really hard to pretend this isn't the case because Look the SS had "God" on their belt buckles, and besides Communism wasn't technically atheist because they let the Orthodox Church stay open.

But they know, as we know.

So, what are all these Black folks squawking about? A few of 'em get killed in illegal activities, big deal.
If they want some notoriety, if they want to get into the big leagues a lot more of 'em will have to get killed.
As it is, more people are killed by drunk drivers and bad doctors.
Let's get some perspective here: Blacks are 13% 0f the population and a portion of them are killed; that hardly shows on the graph.
