Haitian Boxer Adonis Stevenson - Sports Illustrated 2013 Fighter of the Year

Sports Illustrated names Haitian-Canadian Boxer Adonis Stevenson 2013 Fighter of the Year...

In a field loaded with worthy candidates, Adonis Stevenson stands out. In March, Stevenson avenged the only blemish on his résumé, knocking out Darnell Boone -- who had handed Stevenson his only loss, in 2010 -- in the sixth round. In June, Stevenson demolished light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson, landing the left hand heard 'round the world in the first round to knock Dawson out.

In September, Stevenson wiped the canvas with Tavoris Cloud, finishing the former 175-pound titleholder in seven rounds. And in November Stevenson capped off a stellar year with a knockout of Tony Bellew, the mandatory challenger for Stevenson's WBC belt.

Congratulations Adonis Stevenson

Grocery Shopping in Miami for $20 - Gade 20 Dola market nan Miami mezanmi!

They say life is expensive in Haiti but it's not only in Haiti. People in Miami better start farming in their back yard. This is $20 worth of grocery food shipping in Miami. Can you believe this?

That was a few years ago. Now it's probably worse!

En Kreyol...

Interstate 93 Boston MA - I93-I95 Interchange

Interstate 93 Boston MA - I93-I95 Interchange

Here is a photo I took while driving on Interstate 93 near Dedham MA en route to Boston.

Any Haitian driver living in the Boston area know this spot right here. UNLESS... like someone I know, you only take the local roads... LOL...

I used to be a Copier Technican in the Boston area, let me tell you, This spot right here, were I93 North merges with I95 south can be a traffic parking lot some times.

Sometimes my beat-up 1988 Acura legend would overheat when I get stuck in traffic.

I have stories boyyyyyy....

Are there any Haitians liging in Egypt?

Are there any Haitians liging in Egypt?

I know there are many Haitians who visit Egypt but I wonder if there are Haitians living in Egypt.

The only thing that keeps coming about Haitians in Egypt on the search engines is the story of the two Haitian-American tourists and their Egyptian guide who were kidnapped in Egypt's Sinai peninsula.

What... You thought Haitians were only kidnapped in Haiti?

Non monchè, Ejipsyen yon fè ti kidnapping pa you tou wi!

Florida Haitian Student Association (FHSA)

On February 1, 2003, a group of 20 Haitians Students from the Florida Haitian Student Association (FHSA) - most of whom are included in this picture - had a unique opportunity to visit our Haitian detainees at the Broward Work Release Center.

"It was very sad and emotional for me to see my people locked up, knowing all they wanted was freedom. Instead they found sadness, pain, insecurity, and humiliation."

Marie Madistin, President of Haitian Club at Palm Beach Community College-South (PBCC)

False Promise Of A Green Card

False Promise Of A Green Card

Vinn Travay Nan Jaden, Map Ba-w Rezidans is Haitian Creole for "Come work in my farm and I will get you a green card / permanent residency in the United States"

Many people are promised a green card if they work in farms but in many cases it is a false promise.
