Outraged!!

As a young Haitians living in Chicago;I was outraged after watching a documentary on Point-du-Sable on WTTW channel 11(local station) where after studies conducted by some researchers;it was implied that Point-du-Sable came from Canada and not Haiti;the worst thing is for any of my country people is to see where they've hidden the statue of the city's founder;underneath a bridge of Lake Shore Drive;this thing is so small that you might even walk right next to it and you wouldn't even know.
I think it really sucks.

This guy needs a bit more respect from all of us leaving in the city of Chicago.
