- Removing LIES And Spreading The Truth
Ok so its the same thing as in brazil then.Haiti has a long history of race mixing prior to the Reolution, and it basically propelled this mulatto elite into ascendancy.
"Because many planters had provided for their mixed-race children by African women by giving them education and (for men) training and entrée into the French military, the mulatto descendants became the elite in Haiti after the revolution. By the time of war, many had used their social capital to acquire wealth and some already owned land. Some had identified more with the French colonists than the slaves, and associated within their own circles. Their domination of politics and economics after the revolution created another two-caste society, as most Haitians were rural subsistence farmers. In addition, the still-new nation's future was literally mortgaged to French banks in the 1820s as it was forced to make massive reparations to French slaveholders in order to receive French recognition and end the nation's political and economic isolation."
This was the pattern of French colonialism from St. Dominique, to New Orleans, to "French" West Africa. It was an assimilationist policy and its vestiges exist today in every former French colony and settlement.
I never thought Haiti had got to that point, i knew of the DR and other places, but never envisioned the mixed race populace in haiti being large enough to do any damage like it has done in brazil.
I've always seen the dark skinned full blooded afrikans being represented by haiti......
