then this doesn't give excuse or give cause to the actions of the singhalese.

i want to talk about how the media-miltiary-complex and far-right-nationalist attitudes of the singhala majority are the cause, and that the singhalese have a terrible history of violence and repression of minorities in the country, but I haven't been sucsessful in writing that in a coherent, non-problematic way. so instead, those are my thoughts, and hopefully i will be able to construct a better argument later that isnt composed of just my internal thoughts on the situation.
