In Haiti, French is used to oppress people in the lower class of society

OMG! I totally agree.

I went to France and spoke the best French I could tho it wasn't perfect, not one person corrected me. It is used to oppress people in the lower class of society.

Lately, I see a lot more people posting in Creole.

French is indeed the language of oppression!
