====================================================


***** TRUE STORY: When Turkish Embassy in DC was hosting African-Americans for social event in 50s : it caused a diplomatic crisis.
U.S Government Officials  warned Turks not to take African-Americans in. The State Dep advised Turks to take African Americans from the back door. Turks refused. 

Then-Turkish Ambassador Munir Ertegun -Father of Ahmet Ertegun- responded that all guests of the Turkey would enter through the front door as equals.Police arrested the Ambassador's son, Ahmet Ertegun, for violating segregation laws. 

Turkish Embassy in DC began to host jazz concerts in 1950s because the National Press Club had refused to host the jazz concerts organized by the ambassador's son Ahmed. 

The reason? The concerts were going to be open for Black Americans. 

“Orgies While People Are Dying”: How Charity Oxfam Allowed Sex Abuse in Ailing Countries Like Haiti

Why does it take so long for these types of incidents to come to light.
Haiti 8-years?

WHO MONITORS AND EVALUATES THESE ORGANIZATIONS IMMEDIATELY?

Could an unbiased professional entity or organization be utilized to immediatly address issue to evaluate and monitor OXFAM, Save the Children, even the United Nations? YES. IT ALREADY EXISTS.

Oxfam has been hit with dozens more misconduct allegations in the days since The Times of London revealed Oxfam tried to cover up sex crimes by senior aid workers in Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake. On Tuesday, Oxfam’s leadership was questioned by British lawmakers, and apologized for its failure to report sexual misconduct to Haitian authorities. Prostitution is illegal in Haiti, but Oxfam refused to report the activity of its aid workers to Haitian police. Haiti has threatened to expel Oxfam from the country over the scandal. For more, we speak with Sean O’Neill, chief reporter at The Times newspaper in London, which broke the story of the scandal.

We also speak with Haitian-American novelist Edwidge Danticat and Taina Bien-Aimé, executive director of the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women.
