Fuck you bitch, they ain't feeding shit. Because of people like that Haiti has become an international scheme rather than a sovereign country.

How bout you just put us out of your fucking consciousness, we'll be a lot better off. We don't need your psychotic mind sets and destabilizing policies implemented on us. The situation that their hiding in cages from was mainly caused by their own doing.

And please, I'm begging you, stop molesting our

I don't like assumptions.

On what basis someone assumed that the original tweet came from someone in the Diaspora, living in US?

First, thank the gentleman for making an observation.

Perhaps admit you didn't see it that way. Second, I call BS about being thrown out of the truck.

If that's the case, create makeshift seat belts if you need to. No matter how you cut it, it does not look good to be in a cage. Three, I say the real reason for the cage trucks are concerns for security because perhaps a truckload of foreigners has a higher risk comparatively with the local Haitian population of getting stuck up on the road. Whoever is in charge of cultural sensitivity training and logistics failed.

I am one of the missionaries that has a caged truck.

We bring mission teams to the mountains to work in our cooperative and since there are no roads we need the cage for safety purposes.

People can be thrown out of a truck on a mountain road if there is nothing to hang on to. Obviously some people living in the city have never been to their own mountain areas to see the dangers.

This is a manifestation of pure white american racism.

Why does the Haïtian State allow such public insulting behaviour?
