A dictatorship under Gerard Latortue from 2004 to 2006 presided over the murder of thousands of Fanmi Lavalas partisans – at least 4000 murders according to the only scientific study done to investigate the matter. The perpetrators were mainly paramilitary groups and the Haitian police which was quickly revamped under close US supervision to include hundreds of the terrorists formerly based in the Dominican Republic. The UN troops MINUSTAH perpetrated some massacres of unarmed protestors and bystanders. However, most of the dirty work was done by the revamped Haitian police and their paramilitary allies with MINUSTAH acting in a supporting role.Reporters Without Borders openly cheered the slaughter that took place under the Latortue dictatorship as a victory for press freedom. Human Rights Watch HRW said almost nothing as the human rights abuses in Haiti exploded after the 2004 coup. As Haiti easily accumulated the worst human rights record in the Western Hemisphere, HRW directed about 20 times more criticism at Venezuela – a fact Washington must have welcomed but that is utterly indefensible from any moral perspective. What little HRW wrote about Haiti after the 2004 coup often served to legitimize the Latortue dictatorship. Amnesty International did much better than HRW, but Amnesty lagged way behind what independent researchers with far fewer resources quickly uncovered. After the coup, Amnesty gradually distanced itself from the anti-Aristide sources HRW relied on like RNDDDH whom I mention below, but still demonstrated appalling cowardice in confronting MINUSTAH’s most flagrant and well documented crimes.

"I'm not racist, my wife is Asian!" What it's actually like looking Asian with a far-right, anti-feminist white father, and a self-loathing Asian mother who hoped for privileged "white, blue eyed babies." An appraisal of fetishes and self-hatred.

Why does it seem that the men that pursue Asian women as a "last resort," are generally the most strange, racist, spiteful and hateful people - especially against Asian men, other minorities and white women? If Asian women prefer white men - why is this, and what happens to the children - especially if they look predominantly Asian? Compiled by Asian-looking Eurasians and Hapas themselves. A community effort to explore the unintended consequences of "white fever" and "yellow fever", racism, fetishes, power imbalances, stereotypes, and the effect it has on a staggeringly large, growing, and unexplored new demographic. Why does it seem the children of Asian men and white women fare better and are more successful? Why is there such a double standard against Asian men and white women, whereas Asian women essentially default to white men? What happens when Half Asian sons resemble Asian men? Why do so many white supremacists, alt-rightists, and white nationalists have Asian partners? Why do racist white men fetishize Asian women, and why do Asian women fetishize white men - and what does that mean for the children? Compiled by the son of a racist white father and a racist Chinese mother.
