Against Enslavement of Haitian People

Claudine Etienne - September 5 2009, 9:30 AM

If we stop being so racist, we can free each other from slavery and diminish the problem.

Slavery begins at home for Haitians.

It begin in the family where the darker you are the more responsibilities you have, the less freedom (of speech, religion, and social priviledges), and the less rewards you receive.

We do a lot of talking to bring our heads up while we are the ones selling our blackest sisters into slavery.
