Video: Beyonce speaking Haitian Creole, Sak Pase?

Have you ever heard Beyonce saying "Sak Pase" in Haitian Creole?

I have her ON video saying "Sak Pase, Nap Boule"
That's Haitian Creole...
Take a look.

Many times on the Internet people are asking is Beyonce Haitian?
Well... in the video she admits to being "Creole" but what exactly is being Creole?

(video not available)

Like I said on the video, being Haitian is a bloodline, it's like being Italian or Irish, it's a heritage, claim it...

But the dispute over who is of Haitian decent in the United States, and who is not, it goes far beyond the walls of the Bayou... It's much bigger than that... As a matter of fact it expands from the swamps of Louisiana all the way into Canada.

Let me explain.

Most Americans, when they say "Creole", they are referring to the Louisiana Creole culture, The Big Easy, the Cajun cuisine, and not Haitian culture, but they seem to forget that Napoleon Bonaparte sold the Louisiana territory to the United States right after the Haitian war of independence.

Had it not been for Haiti, had it not been for OUR Haitian heroes, nearly one third of what is today the United States of America would be speaking French.

Let me tell you, for the record what Haiti represents to the United States:

There are 14 current U.S. states and two Canadian Provinces that owe a BIG FAT thank you to Haiti because they are part of the Louisiana purchase.

Question:

How did I go from Beyonce to this history lesson?

I don't know...

I guess that's how my brain operates!

My name is Woodring Saint Preux and I said it.

@kimbo slice, wait a minute, did you call Haitian jk ass?

No you are not. First of all, no Haitian want your stupid Beyoncé, and who is she?

Uneducated, can't speak proper English, and a bad influence.

A big bravo to M.P. You say it all. I don't know why some Haitian claiming Beyoncé.

Beyoncé can't even speaks proper English and if it wasn't for the music industry, she would have been working for McDonalds or any fast food restaurant.

I can't believe that some Haitian would go that low claiming Beyoncé.

What exactly Beyoncé is doing to make them go crazy for

Kimbo,
I was under the impression that you were an educated person; however, based on the word that you just used, I would say not. You may be the first ghetto African I have ever encountered.

PS I would never mistaken an African from Congo as Haitian! Don't worry about that. Most of the Haitian I KNOW are mixed with French, African, Native Indian or Syrian.

I am not sure who you are or the extent of your education; however I must say that Haitian people do not need to have any claim on Beyonce.

Our culture is more about intellect rather than looks and celebrity status.

We are the first Black Republic in the world.

What difference does it make?

Being Haitian is something that one develops by being involved in the Haitian culture.

Back in the 18th century, it was a common practice for Haitian slaves to accompany their masters to Louisiana.

so was Louisianna colonised by Haiti, then?

Oooohh, I see...how comes that their creole is different from the one spoken in Haiti, then?

I have been to Louisiana, my girlfriend is from lake Charles in Louisiana, she's a pure black American, she can speak creole but she has no Haitian roots ! Beyonce speaks poorly Louisana creole but she has no Haitian roots like my girlfriend ! I'm African myself from CONGO and I can speak creole too ex: en sav pale creole kom zote ! does it mean that I have Haitian roots, now?
