Haiti's status as the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere "has a lot to do with the fact it has been independent since 1804, it had a long period of discrimination, it had to pay reparations" and had corrupt dictators, said Hogarth

This sounds like a typical struggle for many countries. that sentence is a cop out. Look at all the black nations of the world. They are all poor and disease ridden.

I guess we will be seeing a lot of Haitian refugees now. Just what we need.

Hey Deez Nutz.....what does your comments have to do with your topic.

Don't try to sneak your hatred of African-Americans in by talking about Haiti.

Crunch yourself.

Right Deez NutZ you are off topic on your own thread. Haiti's poverty has everything to do with them declaring their independence and I'm prove of them for it. F'ck to all people who talk sh*t about haiti or any other people. You are just wicked & psycho. But you'll be sorry.

They were enslaved and they fought back. Despite successes the greater and more powerful system still kept them down.

Yes, much in common... and not only with African-Americans, but with a lot of people.

Your right I am off topic and spewing hate. But I was not referring to African Americans. I was referring to ppl from African descent. All predominately African societies are in shambles all over the world. It is not whiteys fault. In response to other posters

I wonder if I would care anymore if the people affected by the earthquake were white. I really don't think so.

The raping, looting pathetic black animals in Haiti sitting around waiting for White to come save them reminded of the balck animals in New Orleans who did the very same thing after Katrina.

I am a proud Haitian-American, and I say to all the racists in the world "be careful". Your great grandfather might have raped his slaves, so your great grandma could been an African slave. Your blond hair, and blue eyes mean S--T. The USA says if you have a drop of African Blood in your veins you are a negro. A very important fact that I want to bring to the racists all over. YOUR MOTHER DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH MILK, AND WAS UNABLE TO NURSE YOU. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF A "WET NURSE"? Your life has been saved, because you SUCK ON A BLACK BREAST. The very same blacks you hate gave you life. The black women are raising your children who do not even know you anymore, and think the nanny is their mom. We also taking care of your parents you dumped in the Nursing Homes, and whom you don't even visit. We bathe, wipe their butts, feed, comfort, etc... I have news for you your children will do the exact same thing to you, and a black face will be changing your diapers. You are waiting for your parents to drop dead so you can get everything, but you don't give a damn about them. I suggest that you chose your words carefully, and go visit grandma/grandpa in the Homes. They depend on Blacks for their very survival, and we take great care of them even the racists or former KKK members.
