I wonder if its in response to that monday manif
Haitians will no longer be eligible for U.S. visas given to low-skilled workers, the Trump administration said on Wednesday, bringing an end to a small-scale effort to employ Haitians in the United States after a catastrophic 2010 earthquake.
Ayisyen yo pap elijib pou viza US yo bay travayè ba-kalifye yo, administrasyon Trump la te di nan Mèkredi, yo te mete fen nan yon efò ti echèl pou anplwaye Ayisyen nan Etazini apre tranblemandtè katastwofik 2010 la.
While I do agree with some of your points, Loraine, but you understand that Haiti is not the problem. Most people in Haiti are not the problem but it's a handful of folks, albeit powerful folks who have created this problem.
The politicians, corrupt governmental branches, "rich" folks who have contributed to the conditions of the land.
Actually, I did catch the tail end of the protest and I am proud to have been there.
I did this because I value my humanity and I wish that no one tramples it. And I believe that Trump in that statement did just that and it is incumbent on me to say something back to him. Am I saying that he will heed to the call?
Not at all! Trump is a man filled with filth, pride, arrogance, and other stuff that shall remain nameless.
After saying all of that, the changes start with us, Haitians.
I do not consider myself a deserter for leaving Haiti when I was a juvenile. I did not have a choice like many. I am not saying that I would have stayed had I reached maturity when I left. No one wants to live in calamitous.
I do agree with most of the things you said though. Some of us are real hypocrites.
You know what I come to realize, we , haitians are a bunch of hypocrites. We pretend to love Haiti, yet we suck the life out of it. We keep saying that it is a great country, we will never trade it for any other country. Yet, we do that every day. The moment you leave Haiti to come live permanently in another country and never look back, you have traded it. Haitians say the most disgusting things about Haiti. They do the most disturbing, unhuman things in Haiti, yet pretend to get upset when a stranger disrecpect Haiti. Who owns Haiti love and respect, you guys whom umbilical cord was cut and burried there or a complete stranger? During the march, I heard them asking for respect, respect is something earned not given. Nobody will respect you if you don't have any respect for youselves. Some choose to live in denial simply because they can't bear the truth that Haiti is one fucked up country. Before you come bark at me, take a minute and ask yourself these questions : why did me/ my parents have to leave all our family behind to come to the U.S? Why do I never step my foot or have fear to step my foot in my homeland? Why can't I easily say fuck that shit I am going back to live there? Why do I feel unsafe every time I go to Haiti?...Once you answer this question with the honest truth then you can come at me, if not, go sit in a corner.
I am cheerful that your boss, one of the tyrants barred you from such an insincere act lakay zanmi. I am pleased that I am not begging for your clemency for calling you a pretender this morning. It is ironic that you would march for something that Trump said supposedly, yet here you are at 8:07am sweating for someone who is thinking of the same thing that Trump whispered. He just said it louder.
I think the proper course of action would be to pack-up and leave. If we cannot do that, we need to suck it up and move on.
Hmmm...I am not sure about being duplicitous if some believe that the statement made by the "most powerful man" in the world is repulsive, repugnant, vile, hate-filled, disgusting---enough of a stomach turning statement to merit a trip to the bathroom to spew a few words of protest against Trump, via the march. If not work related activities, I would love to take part. In the meanwhile, I am using social media to voice that vehement displeasure against Trump.
I may grant you your statements against Clinton, Obama, and others in the Democratic party for not being much better. I am of the firm belief that neither party has Haiti's best interest in mind. It's time that we wake up and accept that truth so we start believing in ourselves, as a people, to commence the march that progress that we are looking for. No one else will do it for us...
Nonetheless, that does not negate the logic behind today's march. This rhetoric, if not debunked, can be to our detriment.
wowww who knew you had it in you tek lolll. Well said!!!
Isn’t this march a duplicitous one? As trump held, it is the rational of most of them. He just uttered it loud enough for us to hear about it. The problem is not really a being. It is the system. As a first black leader of the free world, one would think that at the very least he would honor the land that paved the way for him. Was it because they considered us a shithole country in 2010 that Obama did not visit Haiti ?
True, he inflicted pain with his statement but is that the hardest punched that landed on us? What the Clintons did in 2010 is far worse than the statement made last week. In 2016 again, under Obama’s observant they did it again.
