This thesis analyzes how racism was the underlying cause of the Rwandan Genocide of 1994, and investigates how racism was possible in a country that consists of one race. This thesis studies how western colonizers implemented race relations which then manifested into fear and became the driving force for the genocide. This study chronologically covers Rwanda's political system, beginning with colonization, through the psychology explaining why genocides are undefined until their conclusion, and ends with an analysis of Rwandan's ongoing recovery.
