Without he knowing that he was being taped, the (white) Consul of Haiti in Brazil was caught on videotape today telling a visibly embarrassed Brazilian newsman the following:
"The misfortune that occurred over there (in Haiti), turns out to be a blessing for people over here (in Brazil) - we all know that! My feeling is that all this is the result of all that handling of macumba(witchcraft); I don´t even know what that is. The African himself carries a curse on him. Anywhere you´ve got Africans, the place is just fucked up!"
See and hear for yourself this extraordinary display of RACISM by a man who is representing "his" country in Brazil, regarding "his" black-skinned fellow countrymen, at the most dire hour of their existence as a nation.
