The cause of the mass genocide of the Tutsi people was caused by the Hutu's feeling threatened by the Tutsi's. The Belgians thought of the Tutsi's as a superior group of people, because they were the majority population. The Hutu's thought they had most power and felt resented the Tutsi's because of this.
