This is racism, and it is absolutely wrong

This morning I was forwarded a news article about the “cleansing” of Haitians from the Dominican Republic:

Google shows me several other news stories along that line. And it makes me angry. How can you possibly treat other humans that way?!?

 

Is there even another lens to view this through? I mean, under what circumstances is this even acceptable?

 

Lastly, how does this tie into a Unit 4 blog? As the article starts off, we do have racism in America, just not quite as bad as the Haitians have it, apparently. So on the one hand I am glad we are not dealing with this level of crap. On the other hand, I am reminded that we need to look out for our fellow humans, our brothers and sisters.
