The US Government Warns of Visiting Haiti

11 Aug

haiti, black politics, black news

Reports state that the cholera outbreak, high crime levels, and an unstable government are the primary reasons that the US government is not recommending that its citizens visit the country of Haiti.

Haiti’s President, Michael Martelly, has been having difficulty implementing a new government. Lawmakers recently rejected his two nominations for prime minister and a third has not been selected yet.

Since last October, when the Cholera outbreak started, close to 6,000 people have died and more than 400,000 became ill.

Haitian officials believe that the recent U.S. government allegations about Haiti are blown out of proportion. They feel that the U.S. is trying to limit tourism and stop foreign investment initiatives.

    I’ve always felt Africans who were re-planted on the Caribbean Islands should be afforded to return to the good land where they were removed in the first place.

    Sorry, Bob. Repatriation is not the answer for “re-planted” Africans. Reparations from Europe, North America, and to a lesser extent, “Arabia” would solve most of the “problems” of African Americans and Afro-Carribeans. Some of those funds (or programs, or whatever form the “repair” would take) could then be used to provide
    some serious “foreign aid” to the Motherland itself.

    No doubt, reparations can lead certainly give our nations a boost. Problem is there is no agency within those entities mentioned who will willingly support any effort to aid this endeavor (repatriate). They would much rather feign concern, while continuing their campaigns to strip the continent of what ever dignity it has left. Otherwise, here is something which must be done purely independent of the ‘movers and shakers’ of western and arab social networks.

    America and europe have always been the problem for haiti. These countries have kept
    turmoil and destabilization going in hati every since the country was estsblished.
    Setting up puppet governments and letting one percent of the population control all of the
    resources in the country,while the indigenous people own nothing but poverty.
    Have you not wondered why after all of the money ( we are talking billions) that has been
    given to this tiny country that they never get on their feet, nothing seems to get better.
    Just check out who is benefiting from this policy of keeping the people in abject poverty
    and you will see that it is done on purpose so that a few gain from the resources of the
    country while the rest almost starve to death. This travesty of justice is a ugly stain on
    America and the rest of the civilized world.
