urbanHaiti!

urbanA country located in the Caribbean. It shares the Island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic. It has been having many problems in its economy due to its numerous ruthless and selfish dictators. It's been in a state of civil unrest for years. It is also the first black nation to win it's independence in the Americas.

urbanTrudy: Did you know Haiti used to be called the "Jewel of the Caribbean"? Judy: Really? I heard that it used to be populated by the Taïno indians until the whites, spanish, and french brought African slaves into the country for sugarcane plantations. Trudy: That is true. and ever since then, the slaves revolted with Toussaint Louverture and won their independence. I don't think those whites, spaniards, and french ever forgave them. Judy: Oh yeah. Since then, the Haitians have been paying for their independence. They have a long way to go until they're stable.

urbanThe best example of what happens when blacks control a country's destiny. Prior to 1804 Haiti was the prize possession of the French in the New World. It generated so much wealth for them that they called it the "Jewel of the Carribean". After the massacre of every white man, woman and child on the island, it became the first black-ruled country in the western hemisphere. Since that day, Haiti has been mired in corruption, violence, poverty and AIDS, much like many other African countries.
