Frank Young Iii,

I agree in part with everything you said, however, you don't seem to know about Haiti's problems as much as you think.

You said "Not only does research give answers but living in the country and doing business there has made me extremely aware of Haiti and all of its many problems."

Whether you acknowledge it or not, or accept it or not, do you realize you were part of the elite class?

And since you were part of the elite, you cannot acknowledge that the elite class constitutes one of the biggest barriers to Haiti's progress.

And that my friend is naivity.

You said " I do love Haiti and its people but there need to be a solution and not so much dialogue." I'll give that to you because you are 150% right.

That's what we, Haitians, do. We talk a lot but with NO action.

You said "The people of Haiti that have left and are living abroad need to stop all this "jaw jacking" on the radio stations and get off their asses and go and help the people of their country!"

Once again, you have just shown how little you know about Haiti's issues.

If you did, you would have known that majority of these Haitians got kicked out of Haiti by the Haitian government in the first place because the government doesn't want them there, in Haiti.

You must know the meaning/definition of "Exile" sending someone into exile, don't you?

Think about that!

I must tell you that majority of Haiti want to go back home to Haiti, but unfortunately the government would not allow it. First of all it is the government's job to call/encourage Haitians back to Haiti.

If I would go back to Haiti, today, what would I be doing?

There isn't anything going in Haiti.

It is the government's job to provide leadership in oder for Haitians to come back.

You said "Rather than spending all of their time critisizing the people that are born in those countries, look in the mirror and notice all the chaos that is going on behind you and focus on that and leave those individuals that are in their own birth countries alone! Haitians here in the USA are so critical of the African American here til they cant even interract with any others besides themselves (which is so sad).


Now, you really lost me for real. I don't quite know what are the people Haitians keep criticising so much. I know that Haitians criticise in part, US-government, Canada, France, etc. etc...

for Haiti's misfortune and if you knew much about Haiti you would know that Haitians have reasons to criticise those governments for Haiti's down fall. In fact, those government started taking responsibility for Haiti's misery since the earthquake.

In regard to Haitians criticising African American is just the contrary.

African Americans are the ones who keep criticising Haitians and do not want anything to do with Haitians since Reagan put the AIDS stigma on Haitians.

Of all the challenges Haitians have been facing in the United States, have you ever seen African Americans supporting Haitians?


You said "The white population only looks at them as being a cheap source of labor and nothingelse.The Haitian businesses are only frequented by other Haitians who never want to pay what the merchants are asking for their goods and services."

1) Haitians are not the only group that white people use for cheap labor.

The same goes to all other immigrant groups living in this country except for white european blue eyes and green eyes. Furthermore, the white businesses are being shipped overseas looking for cheap labor.

Don't make it sounds like cheap labor was created by Haitians.

2) you don't seem to know much about the functionality of culture.

It is not just Haitians who act that way, but all immigrants living in this country act/do the same way. This is due to shared values, language, goods/products/food, etc. etc...

The same goes for African Americans and white Americans as well. I have never seen white people shop in black businesses either.

Personally, I don't frequent black businesses because they always charge much more than everyone else. A pair of pants that I could buy for $15, I would pay at least $20-$25 for those same pants in a black business.

You said "So, I suggest that Haitian get focused on their own home and stop causing the continual division of the black races here in the USA." WOW! are you really serious?

You have got to be kidding me! Haitians are causing continual division of the black races here in the USA?

I really don't know what to say because you certainly have No clue what you are talking about.

You said "i would love to see a day where Haiti lives up to its name as the first black country in the caribbean to take its independence from its oppressors but until the "deospara" gets off their asses and stop just sending money and send skills, labor and know how, I cant see it happening for at least another several hundred years."

You see, once again, you don't know much about Haiti otherwise you would not say Haiti is the first black republic in the caribbean.

Haiti is the first black republic in the world.

Please understand this fact for as long as you live, there isn't anything the diaspora can do or accomplish in Haiti unless the government provide them with leadership.

The disapora does not Have a mandate to do anything in Haiti, the government does and until the government makes its plan for Haiti known to the people Haitian diaspora will still continue to sit on their asses.

I hope you understand all that if you know anything about civilian responsibility and government responsibility.

The people take direction from the government and follow the government's leadership and not the other way around.

Call up on the government to take its responsibility to rebuild the country and you'll see great majority will leave your country back to their country, Haiti, to work and rebuild their country with grace, dignity, and integrity.
