What is the Definition of Genocide?

The definition of genocide is disputable and we all have our own versions of what we think the term means. Officially, Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group. Generally speaking, Genocide breaks down into 8, distinguishable stages (see link). Though the international community has the capability of stopping Genocide at any one of these stages, nothing is usually done until it is too late.
