Where is the humanitarian aid for Rohingya refugees?

Mohammed Nazir & his wife Zohar Nahar shelter from monsoon rains under a tarpaulin–“their home until a proper shelter can be built.” And when will that be? What in the hell is going on–or more accurately, not going on–with humanitarian aid for the Rohingya refugees? Let us speak frankly: racism is of the essence here. If these were people in a western country, there would be an international call for emergency, immediate, & massive humanitarian aid. This is a catastrophe very much like Hurricane Katrina & Haiti where racism was also of the essence. No less, this is a crime scene.

Stand with the Rohingya refugees by demanding humanitarian aid.
