Global corruption started by Scandinavian Italian men in 509 B.C. 

On March 21, 1960, Humphrey Taylor, a reporter, described a peaceful march by Black South Africans against white rule.

"We went into Sharpeville the back way, around lunch time last Monday, driving along behind a big gray police car and three armoured cars.As we went through the fringes of the township many people were shouting the Pan-Africanist slogan "Our Land." There were grinning and cheerful. ... Then the shooting started. We heard the chatter of a machine gun, then another, then another. ... One woman was hit about ten yards from out car. ...Hundreds of kids were running, too. Some of the Children, hardly as tall as the grass, were leaping like rabbits.Some of them were shot, too. --The Mammoth Book of Eyewitness History 2000, Jon E. Lewis 2000. The Sharpeville massacre was a stunning example of the white government's oppression of the Black majority in South Africa.
