Fascinating. Thanks for posting that!

So yeah... it's racism!

I swear the left needs a boogeyman for everything. Racism fits the bill.

RE: Why Haiti Is Poor And Why The Left Lie About It
The Vox host is essentially historically accurate about what has happened in Haiti, but yeah, none of it is anywhere near as relevant as what little they have done lately.

The critic is largely correct, in theory. But he left plenty out as well. Like the fact that France sent warships 20+ years after independence demanding reparations for the or losses due to Haiti's independence and proceeded to take around 80% of Haiti's wealth annually for almost 60 years. Not exactly good for a developing nation.

Somehow an American bank, now known as Citibank, got ahold of some of the Haitian debt to France and continued to require payments, enforced by an American occupation of Haiti in 1911 where the US seized their treasury department, gold, and customs service and kept taking 40% of the budgets until the debt was considered clear... In 1947!

Both sides have points. Both sides left out critical details that are very relevant. It was screwed from day 1. France was pretty nasty to them. But maybe they had good reason? I don't know.

Fair article that was in Forbes.
