Haiti is the only country which paid its former colonial master a heavy price for freedom.

In the years when the African countries earned their independences from France, England, Belgium, Portugal etc they did not have to pay nothing to no one.
It is unfair that Haiti had to suffer so early in 1804 with this debt. Shame on you France !!!!
Give the money back now.
