Belarus: “Hating Haiti?”

Categories: Caribbean, Eastern & Central Europe, Belarus, Haiti, Disaster, Ethnicity & Race, International Relations, Technology

Andrei Khrapavitski writes [1] that Haiti “has become a popular topic” for Belarusian bloggers “to chatter about and for some to sarcastically grin at the pain of Haitians. It hurts to read how my compatriots, some of whom have received foreign aid themselves, seem to be quite cynical about the Haitian earthquake and purely racist hiding under a veil of Internet anonymity.”
