Andrew Asante Professor Shurts His -146 October 3rd 2018 Essay In the first paragraph of what is destroyed in genocides it elaborates more on Raphael Lemkin's definition of genocide and it speaks mainly about mass murder not being the only version of genocide. Observers stress the destruction of the group as a sociocultural unit, not necessarily or primarily the physical annihilation of a single race ( Best example I could think of was when Slave masters use to gather all the slaves in a circle when a runaway slave was caught attempting to escape. They would painfully whip and humiliated the runaway slave to strip any thoughts from the other slaves to escape, inflicting fear in their minds and asserting their dominance. Martin shaw gives a quote in the second paragraph because groups are social constructions, they can be neither constituted nor destroyed simply through the bodies of their individual members. I think it means that because groups are social constructions they are immortal in a way because their message will always live on.
