Why Don’t Black Countries Suffering under IMF Loans get the Same Attention as Greece???

This whole Greece “Crisis” is very interesting to me because all of a sudden people care about the IMF and its loans because one country threatens the European Union meanwhile countries with a majority black population, such as Jamaica, have been crushed by the IMF and its policies for decades yet hardly anyone cared or cried foul while the IMF recommendations devalued the Jamaica’s currency, caused living expenses to spike, and placed a tax on local commodities while giving tax breaks to international corporations..
