Haiti names the fly as its national bird!!! After centuries of house flies being raised in this country these winged parasites get their glory. Weather it's the garbage on the streets or the dying homeless citizens festering wounds that keep these winged beauties thriving. One thing is for sure it's illegal to kill or hunt the fly in Haiti. A menagerie of flies will open up in the Haitian museum of natural feces. A witch doctor will be giving a symposium on this poop eating national treasure. Followed by a dinner featuring rice that will be dropped from a helicopter. After dinner the Haitians are encouraged to curse the white man then turn around and ask the whites for help in a Haitian contradiction ceremony. Children get in free but may be abducted and sold into slavery in Africa. Admission is one voodoo doll or a vile of chicken blood.

Also the blacks in the united states have almost twice the life expectancy of the african blacks. So we didn't kill of the American negro we only made it easier for them to be lazy and cared for.
