If you live in Haiti and you happen to be visiting the United States, try this as an experiment: while spending some time with a young working-class Haitian-American try not to mention Haiti in the conversation to see how many times he or she will bring it up.

They dont care!

My opinion: People like to talk about things that make them feel good. What is it about Haiti that makes anyone feel good these days? Let's be honest.
