Young boys are sold by families to ‘entertain’ wealthy merchants and warlords. An undercover investigation into this illicit sex trade..

The Taliban banned this practice and made it almost disappear, but now it is being revived. 
Where does this practice of using young boys for dancing and sexual pleasure of powerful rich men originate from? According to the movie, military leaders have a stable of young boys, and compete with each other over their affections. From there, other merchants and business owners wanted the same thing...so it is spreading.

 Kat - 1 day ago - thecirclenews.org 
Three decades ago, the relatives of an eleven-year-old Native girl in Minnesota forced her to have sex with a man in exchange for alcohol. The story was not front-page news. It was not the subject of a feature-length film with a happy ending. No one ..

"Racism is common to most and probably all societies. Laws never seem entirely to eliminate it. It was the essential tool in the creation of modern settler states. The United States could not have come into existence without the obliteration of North American Indian cultures and of large numbers of the people themselves. They had to die so the US could be born. 
In Australia the indigenous people of Tasmania were wiped out to the last man, woman and child, while on the mainland the tribes were massacred, confined, stripped of their ancestral land and eventually turned into fringe dwellers. Until recently Australia had a prime minister who could deny that aboriginal children of mixed ‘blood’ were taken from their parents up to the 1930s and refused to issue any expression of remorse for their mistreatment. 
More recent targets of racism have been Lebanese and Vietnamese immigrants, while the Howard federal government’s racist treatment of Iraqi and Afghan refugees and asylum seekers remains one of the most shameful chapters of Australia’s history.".............cont. at link below

Good article showing the history and evolution of racism, as well as the progress that has been made, mostly by human rights and peace activists.

Please note news at;
How do three different proteins combine in one animal naturally? THEY DON'T... In animals, it is difficult enough to combine TWO proteins or jump just ONE animal species into humans... 
Bird flu is an example, of how difficult and rare this is... Everyone kept predicting a bird flu epidemic, where just one animal virus jumps from birds to humans, via  mosquito that directly injects bird flu into humans. This jump is difficult enough, and it has not happened, and it has not caused an epidemic..
The chances of this happening and jumping three animal and human species in three ways, all at once are like a gajillion to one AGAINST IT.. IT DOES NOT HAPPEN, in my opinion and in the opinion of experts at this link...
However, this combining of two or three viruses genetically is EASILY DONE. It can be MANUFACTURED in a lab and then be sent out as a vaccine, oops, accidentally contaminated with LIVE virus... 
In the above case, eighteen countries got a tainted vaccination combining two different viruses..these two are easy to combine with human flu viruses when injected, but have variable outcomes... either mild or severe depending on mutations.
