    "The international community is so screwed up they’re letting Haitians run Haiti.” –Luigi R. Einaudi, US career diplomat, member of the Council on Foreign Relations and former Assistant Secretary General at the Organization of American States"
    :)time:they dont hide their White Supremacy and imperialist intent)

    "Haitian author and human rights attorney Ezili Dantò heard Luigi R. Einaudi make this shocking comment in 2004, as Haiti was about to celebrate its 200 years of independence with its first democratically elected President, Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Apart from his efforts to raise the minimum wage and other social measures for the majority of Haitians living in extreme poverty, Aristide planned to nationalize his country’s resources, a move which meant more money for Haitians and less for multinationals. One month later, in the name of the “international community”, Aristide was overthrown in a coup d’état orchestrated by the U.S., France and Canada.

    Today, the “international community” is running Haiti again, colonial style.
    One can easily tell by comparing the very slow construction of shelters and basic infrastructure for the Haitian majority with the rapid rise of luxury hotels for foreigners, sometimes with the help of aid funds which, we were told, were going to provide Haitians with basic necessities

    Is it your opinion that foreign investment into Haiti should cease and the Haitians should be left, isolated, to fend for themselves?

    I ask this because it seems to me, and I may be mistaken, that there is a sense of entitlement when it comes to foreign investment; as if the these "poor Haitians" are entitled to a handout from foreigners. Spending money to make money is a staple of capitalism so the use of funds in the manner portrayed in that article seems consistent those ideals. Throwing money at Negroid populations has never had any long term benefits for either donor or recipient. At some point these Haitians need to learn how to fish instead of depending on foreigners to feed them fish.
