Well I don't necessarily think of them as misery tourists but really the minute Haitians stop accepting "Vodou believers as souls in need of salvation from the grip of Satan...

" the minute the world is also going to stop looking Haiti as such! We came up in a system where we as a people have been lied to, tricked and misguided! We have enough info to know that's not true! We don't need any religion and savior to save us. We need to start analyzing each other by respecting our culture! Voudou is not only a religion that calls for the belief in One Almighty creator, nourishes the soul but offers physical healing thru the use and interaction of the unseen world.

But yet we let the very people who put us in chains, raped & kill our women, teach our people to hate the color of their skin tell us that what our ancestors taught us is of the devil and the cause of the worlds misery and suffering.

Yet they would have you and I believe that, What they're teaching us is of the true Divine God and is the only true form of salvation! What a crock of defecation! These missionaries did not free us of our chains and bondage! If anything they've done more to keep us not only in chains but in spiritual darkness! We as a people have to educate and teach each other! Respect each other and genuinely love each other and what we represent collectively as a people! Then and only then will this misconception of our people be erased and done away wth!!!
