Dessalines, did he really not know how to read?

How can anyone says Dessalines did know how to read?

A slave who defined slavery, empires, and colonialism, a man who shed his blood for freedom of noirs, a man who led thousands of soldiers into battles, a man who created the word hope and freedom into Haiti, South America, the Caribbean vocabulary.

How can you said he did not know to read when you are out of bondage, how can you say he did know how to read you are no longer sons and daughters of the French.

Unless you a descendent of President Boyer even though he was free, he was still paying loyalty to Napoleon.

The fear might still be in your heart (you san manman).

People that put Haiti where it is right now. You ignorance made me sick to my stomach.

You might have confused in reading genius for illiterate.
