Turkish-Armenian conflict
This article discusses the Turkish-Armenia conflict, which is the belief that in 1915, there was an Armenian genocide by the people of turkey. As of right now, turkey still does not recognize that that has happened, as do many of our past presidents of the United States. The idea of a "perpetual state of mourning" is used to describe Armenians reaction to this historical event. The Turkish, on the other hand, refuse to acknowledge it's defeats and put more emphasis on its victories. This article really touches on the idea of inter group contact, seeing as these two groups still have conflict today.
