BANGKOK​ –​ Responding​ to​ international​ criticism​ that​ its​ initial​ donation​ of​ $20,000​ was​ insufficient,​ the​ Thai​ government​ has​ generously​ added​ 50,000​ bottles​ of​ whitening​ skin​ cream​ to​ its​ aid​ shipment​ to​ earthquake-stricken​ Haiti.​ “Thailand​ is​ a​ compassionate​ nation,”​ said​ Foreign​ Minister​ Kasit​ Piromya.​ “We​ noticed​ in​ the​ news​ that​ the​ Haitians​ are​ all​ very​ dark-skinned.​ This​ is​ surely​ one​ of​ the​ reasons​ they​ are​ living​ in​ poverty.​ With​ lighter​ skin​ they​ could​ be​ more​ successful.”

The​ whitening​ cream​ represents​ the​ single-largest​ shipment​ of​ its​ kind​ ever​ to​ a​ disaster-zone.​ Prime​ Minister​ Abhisit​ Vejjajiva​ said​ that​ the​ generosity​ of​ Thais​ was​ evident​ because​ so​ many​ people​ had​ encouraged​ the​ donation.​ “Everyone​ kept​ talking​ about​ how​ black-skinned​ the​ Haitians​ are,”​ he​ said.​ “At​ every​ discussion​ about​ aid,​ the​ skin​ color​ kept​ coming​ up.​ I​ see​ now​ that​ the​ initial​ pledge​ of​ USD20,000​ was​ very​ low​ because​ in​ the​ back​ of​ our​ minds​ we​ knew​ that​ these​ black​ people​ needed​ something​ more​ than​ just​ money

“But​ these​ Haiti​ people​ are​ so​ dark​ I​ don’t​ want​ to​ give​ them​ anything.​ Maybe​ if​ they​ were​ lighter,​ like​ Obama.”​ It​ is​ believed​ that​ the​ whitening​ cream​ can​ make​ the​ homeless,​ starving​ survivors​ of​ the​ earthquake​ look​ whiter​ and​ brighter​ in​ just​ 14​ days,​ according​ to​ the​ Unilever​ brochure.​ It​ is​ hoped​ that​ by​ looking​ whiter,​ the​ Haitians​ might​ be​ able​ to​ secure​ more​ aid.

It's not a real article.
It's from an intentionally fake news site.

Whitening Cream as releif aid ???

If this was done in America wouldn't it be labeled as blatantly racist ??

Or is it just a fact of life ???

Do you think it's true that lighter skinned people would recieve more support than dark skinned people ??

Here's the site where the article came from with the story.

Note at the bottom where it says:

This website is not The Nation. For entertainment purposes only.

Or go to the homepage and see where Humungus from "Mad Max: Road Warrior" has been made a general of the Royal Thai Army in order to quench civil unrest.

Whilst I wouldn't put it past Thailand to do something like this is obviously a hoax story.

Something any member of 5 years standing here worth their oxygen use would have researched before posting.

Failed and slagged!

Yes, yes it does.

Guarantee if it happened to a bunch of white people, the way in which this was handled probably would of been different.

Makes you think.
