A Little History on Haiti‏


In the 1700’s what is now Haiti was called the
“Jewel of the Caribbean,” and supplied about 40% of the world’s sugar.


In 1791 the government of France passed legislation to phase out slavery in its Caribbean colonies and
grant the former Negro slaves citizenship. Rather than becoming citizens, Haiti’s Negro population mass
murdered all whites and Mulattoes who could not flee the Island in time.


In 1804 only full blooded Negros remained and Haiti became the first Negro ruled nation. The Haitian revolution dominated America’s debate over slavery. While both the north and the south agreed that slavery
should be ended, southerners and a large percentage of northerners universally opposed having a large
population of freed slaves living in their midst.. The Haitian “Revolution” was fresh in every one’s mind.*

Flash forward to 1915. The “Jewel of the
Caribbean” is now a desolate cesspool, that is exporting almost no sugar. The United States decides to
“take up the white man’s burden” and send the US Marine Corps to rebuild Haiti’s infrastructure and
feed it’s starving population.*

The United States gave huge amounts of money to Haiti and over-saw the building of 1,000 miles of road, telephone lines, modernized its port, and helped Haiti to start exporting sugar once again. The US also put
an end to the thousands of bandits along Haiti’s border with the Dominican Republic. The US left in 1934
at the request of the then stabliized and very ungrateful Haitian government.


Haiti immediately sank straight back into total
desolation strife.


In 1973 the United State once again began playing a huge role in Haiti, giving the Island huge sums of
money in handouts each year.

In 1994 the Clinton administration once again sent the US military to Haiti to rebuild the Island’s
infrastructure.

In 1995 the Peace Corps went to Haiti in large numbers to train the Haitians in job skills. The US
government spent almost one Billion providing food and job training to the Haitians between 95 and 99.


So when Obama says that Haiti has our “full,
unwavering, support,” they have already had our full support since 1915.



When will we learn ......

So, as opposed to actual information, all you have is the ad-hom floor exercise? Can you address the OP or not?

The true history of Haiti..

The peace loving and beautiful people of the tropical island nation known as Haiti are descendants kings and queens.
Systematically white skinned ogres, pimps, thieves and Republican preachers have stolen their natural resources and starved them into the poverty stricken victims you see today.
did you know:

That a Haitian schoolgirl invented penicillin (it was stolen)

The Wright brothers stole the airplane from Haitian slaves that worked in the basement of their Dayton Ohio, sweat shop.

Haiti was once bigger than Texas.. Monsanto stole all their topsoil

History is a tough pill to swallow.
Americans actually didn't invent slavery and most slaves could easily have been sold to us by rival neighboring tribes from their home lands.

I'd be interested in the source for this also.

Wonder why it wasn't posted?

Yes, I do have this silly habit of asking for facts rather than just accepting or posting mindless drivel.

I'd suggest you spend just a few minutes educating yourself on the actual history of Haiti, rather than just posting your usual pointless nonsense.

You'll learn what pure BS the OP truly is.....

I won't hold my breath.
