It's unfortunate you feel that way. and if you do, you should not be even labeling yourself as a American Haitian.

Take the Haitian off because that is an insult to your parents or family members that are of haitian decent.

As for all Haitians should have died or whatever you wished for us. That was really an ignorant statement.

For if you knew of Haiti, you would not regard it in such a hateful fashion.

I guess you are being feed by what the media wants to show about Haiti.

A lot of children in the states are not taught about their history, about their culture and language.

Some parents don't even bother to teach them which is really unfortunate in itself because they are to busy working.

For when you don't know something for yourself, someone else can feed you whatever they deem is necessary for you to learn.

And that is what the media is good for when showing and relating to Haiti.

Yes, Haitians are proud despite every titles they attach to us, despite our challenges which we are working on. But that does not give any one the right to regard us in such a way. I for one, would never wish harm on a person, let alone a nation for that matter.
