What it’s like to be a “White” Haitian in Haiti

What it’s like to be a “White” Haitian in Haiti
haiti port-au-prince

haiti port-au-princeWe are all Haitians, whether we are black, mixed, or white, rich or poor. We all share the same culture: we eat the same food, dance to the same Kompa, and speak the same Creole. Attributing collective intent or behavior based on Arab ethnicity is as racist as attributing collective behavior or purpose to any race/ethnicity and invariably leads to prejudices and hatred. Haiti’s primary focus should be economic growth and not discrimination.
