Earthquakes Japan vs. Haiti

Yes....Haiti is poor and Japan is not, however even poor people can care about their immediate environment and affect it. An example is picking up litter from your front way and creating a communal incinerator. A community police force would be a good use of time and a much needed resource. How about creating a plan? No? Nothing.... Oh well....a couple of questions then. Why is Haiti in such a bad situation? Will it get better?

    • @Ninja_SBD

      You are so right. New Orleans was probably identical to Haiti and a real mess.

      Interesting avatar by the way, hahahaha.

    • @Ninja_SBD If you focus on the ninth ward. After those people were shipped out the crime rate plummeted and simultaneously jumped in Houston and other cities where the 'refugees' were sent. It was like mother nature gave N.O. an enema.

    • @Ninja_SBD Don't be stupid. Differences? In Haiti there was no functioning government (the one before disaster barely functioned), no place to go to and no money to get there, no food (since there was little prior to disaster), no shelter, no money to rebuild or provide aid, victims of Katrina had better shelter AFTER than Haitians did BEFORE.

    • @gregsto Like there is a functional local government in New Orleans right? Shit didn't get done until the US Government came along... The same for Haiti...

  • It comes down to the difference between a productive, hard-working culture, and a lawless, unproductive one.

    Simple sociology, in my eyes. To compound things, Japan was all but leveled by war just under 70 years ago. They had to rebuild almost completely.

  • It’s not about money; blacks act the same wherever they live.

    Look at the blacks when Katrina hurricane came, raping, killing and looting, and they were in a first world country, the USA not Haiti! Haiti used to be safe and prosperous when it was ruled by white Europeans, but when blacks got independence they ruined it. Just the same happened with Somalia, Nigeria, Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) and South Africa etc.

  • I've read that Haiti was one of, if not the, greatest sources of colonial income for France prior to the French Revolution. The slaves are credited with successfully revolting when in fact they had no one to revolt against except the greatly outnumbered farmers since the military had gone back to France. Haiti could be a great place if different people lived there.

    In 1992 hurricane Andrew hit southern Florida and looting ensued. Then it hit Louisiana and instead of looting, people helped eac More..

  • There are two major differences between the peoples of Haiti and Japan.

    i) Japan has preparedness for major nationwide catastrophes, eg tsunamis, earthquakes and/or volcanoes. In addition, they are a civilised society.

    ii) Haiti is none of the above.

  • The difference is education. Santorum says Obama is an elitist for wanting most young people to get a college education. GOP are short sighted idiots.

    • @Nepean109 Universities are just another big business racket, except run by academia. Accountable to no one and charge outrageous fees/tuitions at will. Professors writing textbooks and forcing their students to use their $500 book. By the way, Santorum is long gone. Also, it doesn't take education to pick up after yourself and clean trash from your neighborhood.

  • This is one of the most moronic, willfully ignorant and disgusting videos I have ever seen on Liveleak. Whatever retard made this stupid crap should be made to live in the woods away from civilization.

    To compare the response of Japan and Haiti to the disasters is the height of irreparable stupidity. A first world country vs a third world. One with more than enough resources to immediately render medical care in a modern hospital, house and feed all victims vs utter lack of those resources for More..

    • @knightgarbage 250,000 residents and 30,000 commercial buildings destroyed. Includes all national government buildings in the capital. I might have exaggerated SLIGHTLY and could revise to say the majority of national infrastructure buildings were destroyed. 10%....yes 10% of the countries population left homeless. That would be similar to NYC, Baltimore and DC being destroyed for the US.

      70% of Haitians live on less than $2 per day and this idiot want sot compare them to Japan..

    • @Surfsock I suggest you look at the history of every 'failed' black nation. You will discover an invader and occupier that brutalized the populous and removed resources.

      Education is NOT being offered.

      From Wiki: Literacy levels remain near 50 percent. Haiti is one of the lowest-ranked countries in the world, 177th out of 186, for national spending on education.

  • Seems like just another racist video that compares two completely different situations to try and reinforce the stereotype that black people are lazy.
    In Japan, a first world country where traditionally society is dependent on strict social order, education standards are among the best in the world, and deference to the greater good there is not the desperate shortage of food and water and basic resources that one can see in Haiti.

    Since 1492 Haiti has been systematically raped and pillaged, mo More..

      Haiti as a nation was born from a pissed off slave community revolution. So yeah, that's a lot of blame on the white man already. Yakuza are powerful because of corruption. A tragic and repulsive situation in Haiti is not helped by these racist videos or people like @youpube
