Haiti has had constant turmoil throughout its history but nothing has had the devastating effect on the lives of the Haitian people like the horrific earthquake that struck the country on January 12, 2010. The US has been meddling in Haitian affairs for years and uses aid as a political tool to bend countries like Haiti to their political will. Glen Ford from the Black Agenda says if a little black country stands up and says 'we want to be independent' that represents a danger to the US Empire, not to be tolerated.
It was President Bill Clinton, that put Haitian farmers out of business so that white farmers in Arkansas could export. Haiti used to grow its own rice and under Bill Clinton, Haiti is now the 3rd largest importer of rice in this hemisphere.
(Illegal Alien Haitians gotta get their ass back home. No one told these people to be having kids in a country where your not even a citizen. Take those rug rats with ya on the way out. Last month Obama started kicking all of them out but what about Mexicans and Cubans?)
