the forgotten black bourgeoisie

Mr. rooster, I don't think you understand too much about Haitian history and culture and I would suggest you keep your mouth shut on that subject.

First of all I was answering this "congo" guy was making references to French as it is a sole proprietary ownership in Haiti.

My aims meant to tell him he should not forget all of us as Black Haitians who earned the rights to be the Black Bourgeoisie.

We were there since or even before the War of Independence of Haiti.

For some reason, Haitians and non-Haitians alike love to ignore us. Mulatoes and Whites were NOT the only landowners during and right after our independence...Both Whites and Blacks tried to ignore us. Let people like Jean Price Mars tell you about the Black Bourgeoisie...Besides our good fortunes from the beginning, Duvalier, Francois gave us a leg up to even more reinforce our fortunes and so we did.
There was always a Black bourgeoisie dated even before les pompons noirs et les pompons rouges in Haiti.

The "Noirist" always existed in Haiti.

Mr. rooster, Why am I not surprised that you always equate wealth with color?

To you, having wealth is being "White" and those poor suckers on this site who cannot understand that you are making fun of them and you sure are enjoying the duplicity...Mr. raymond edward olander...this is not a good idea. I would like to discuss it further with you on Rue Enterrement, Port-au-Prince, Haiti at the Cemetery...I will bring my brother, Mr. La Mort...

For your info. There are still some people in Nam who speak French.

You are not claiming Eisenhower was right in sending America to a ridiculous war, are you?

You are not claiming that US won the war in Nam, are you?

Tricky Dicky was the only hero in this whole sordid affair.

Only you, rooster, can see this war differently.

For you people who want to embark in this noble cause of changing Haiti's official language to Creole;Did you even bother to ask the people what they truly want?

After all, you are not their father.The Haitian masses may not be educated, but they are not stupid either.Sometimes, I even think, the masses are a lot smarter than people who are posting in here.
