In Angelina Jolie's recent article for the United Nation's Refugees magazine, she said that Europeans and other Western nations have turned their backs on struggling refugees.
"It's a scandal, really, in such a rich world, that we are not even finding a way to help feed refugee families properly," she wrote.
Jolie also described her disgust over a photo printed in an earlier 2006 edition of the magazine that showed a white couple lounging on a beach, ignoring a black man's dead body that had washed ashore.
