They all came here from Africa? Yet AAs tend to be lighter skin than Haitians. Did they came from different regions in africa?

It's because the haitians revolted against the french earlier than when american slavery ended.

B.S. Since when? I'm half haitien. Maybe they don't mix with white a whole lot. But they have their own light-skin, dark-skin issues. A lot of haitiens are mixed and the lighter ones think they're better.

So am I!
What part is your family from?

But anywho,
I know there are some Haitians that are mixed but due to the fact that the Africans taken to Haiti outnumbered the French which will make it less likely for them to mix compared to the US where the whites outnumbered the Africans

the lighter skin haitians can be just as bad as the Past oppressors sometimes....smh

Hatians are not ashamed of their African herritage, so they usually don't have a problem keeping the black blood in their families. AA's tend to be more whitewashed by Hip Hop and media etc. Hatians have a strong spiritual voodoo connection to Africa.

1. Haiti climate is hotter than most of the US. So that itself make them darker than us. I been to Haiti btw. I live in cold ass Chicago metro and I get lighter in the winter time.

2. Haiti is 95% Black African descendants. America is 13% black. Huge difference which cause more mixing

3. They have a stronger connection with Africans. Some practice voodoo which originated in West Africa.

4. The Haitian Revolution to rebel against the French

This is was I'm betting on. From what I have seen, the islands with the highest percentage of blacks tend to be the islands with the most dark skin blacks because there is not that much influence from other races.

Also, I know for 90% black islands like Antigua, Jamaica and Haiti, mixed people, Asians and Europeans were considered as more priviledged then the majority black population and they wanted to keep their look to maintain their priviledge. This kept people segregated with people marrying people who shares their colour status or "higher." This kept a lot of the black population very black with little mixture from other groups.

This gives a little look at how the system worked in Jamaica and other islands.

The French who claim to be the owner of romance would keep their peepees to themselves? I think not. If you look at the History of Haiti and of Lousiana, you will see that the large mulatto population had a place of power under whites.
The real reason why Haitians are the way they are is because we are mixed. We have a history of fighting off the different groups people that has come to the island.
First we were Indians that fought off the Spanairds. This resulted in the split between DR (spanish colony) and the Indian tribe that remained there. Next the French took over and almost wiped out the Indian population. The French brought in the Africans. The Africans and the Indians met in the mountains (Voo Doo) and in a period of ten years worked on the mentality of the slaves and planned a revolt.
The revolt killed all the white, mulatto, and slaves that sympathized with the whites. Anyone that escaped landed in Lousiana. That is why Lousiana is a 'little different' from the rest of the states.
The real reason why Haitians look the way we do is because we are mixed. Depending on the region, you will find different groups within Haiti. For example, there is a group of Ocape,(I am not sure I spelled it right.)they have gorgeous blue-black skin. You have other groups like my dad who have asian features. My sister has sloe eyes. I am not sure if it was from the Indians or asians that may have migrated to work in the Caribbean. A lot of other Haitians have features that is a mixture of Africans from different parts of Africa like my mother.
The guy that I quoted from is obviously a sh8t bag. He is white with some sort of defect because he is trying to hard to be white. Lighten up, you do not like black features, don't worry, your children won't have them unless...
Anyway, enough with that loser. The point I am trying to make is that we are a nation from slaves. Many Caribbean countries are nations formed by colonial powers or slaves. I am having a hard time understanding what is taking Black America so long to get over this slave issue. To be honest, the only person that is moved by slavery is White Americans. You were slaves, so what, I came from a slave too. You want to connect with Africa, why? They experienced some sort of oppression too. As a matter of fact, they are still trying to survive the ordeal. Honestly, you are black and I am black. You are a Black American and now due to my birth in this land, I am a Black American.
So what is the problem of being black in America?

all Haitians are not dark skinned, but alot are, African Americans have more of a mixture than they do inHaiti, because most white people left Haiti en masse in 1804 when it got independence. so we are not as mixed up although there are some white haitians and alot of mixed race Haitian families, (mixed with French and Haitian mostly). You can see some like T Vice and Garcelle Beauvais.

Yeah, because I'm sure you've done a lot of studies on Haiti to learn about the people and saw that Haitians don't actually have a culture, right ?

LMAO, you're such a loser.
