I’m not arguing the fact that more attention should be directed towards countries like Rwanda, but is the type of attention that’s wanted or needed? I’m not sure. On one hand, hordes of Hilton fans will actually hear the word “Rwanda” mentioned, and maybe half of those will realize it’s a country (and not just a Don Cheadle movie). A few of the remaining might bother to look it up on a map or check Wikipedia to figure out why the hell Paris Hilton is going there in the first place. So I guess not all is lost.
Unfortunately for her, there’s no Hilton hotel in Rwanda.
