The slaughters go on as they have.
They do so distantly, in Gaza, Congo,
In Ukraine, in Sudan and Mexico,
In parts of Ethiopia, Sahel, and also
Right before our eyes, in gun-filled
Parking lots and streets.  All living
Beings kill to live, as we, the so-called
Highest order, do, and we do more
Than that:  we follow leaders who
Convince us killing keeps us safe.

Of the countries and regions you've mentioned only Ukraine has received any substantial Global support from surrounding governments. In Switzerland for instance, Ukrainian refugees are given the S permit, giving them free Public transmit and government subsidized food and shelter.

As for the rest, the death of Palestinians is being debated worldwide with no government reaching out to help, while the other genocides aren't talked about outside of Twitter circles.

Across cultures, darker people suffer most. Why?

it's very dark and a bit prophetic I fear
