A Russian tourist who handed out chocolate to children in Zanzibar, Tanzania, sparked outrage among netizens. The incident was caught on video, the recording was published in the closed Facebook-community "Travel Presidium".
The footage posted online shows the traveler giving candy to the black children in orange vests around him, and then sitting with them in the classroom, clap his hands and sing songs.
“Our tourists in Zanzibar handed out four kilograms of Alenka, and then went to school and returned with incredible emotions,” said Ruslan Israfilov, head of the Guiding Star company, who shared his clients' video online.
The group's subscribers reacted ambiguously to the situation and shared their indignation in the comments. “Feel like a benefactor? Some naked redneck satisfies his base instincts "," The idea may be good, but presented disgustingly "," It's still the girls' parents did not know that a half-naked man came to school. The video has an unpleasant aftertaste,”some wrote.
“Help is great, but sugar is a drug, especially since they are not used to eating chocolate”, “How did all the whites have fun, did they feed the“monkeys”? It is not clear why they were filming, why they went. This is not help. They amused their own ego "," I was also in Zanzibar recently and treated the children with sweets. But it did not occur to me to make a show out of this "come on, beggar monkey, reach for a chocolate bar." I believe that the guys on the video had a good message, but it didn’t turn out very nicely,”others noted.
