Lesotho: Racism

Sotho comments on a recent post by Idland on racism against the Chinese population in Lesotho...We have so far only considered the moral and common-sense aspect of the issue. There’s an economic angle. Carrying out hate crimes (if that’s what they are) against foreigners will only: * invite potential investors to back off and to go look elsewhere, * speed up the closure of foreign controlled but job giving businesses,
* create a climate of instability that is incompatible with a healthy economy.
