Zili Danto: On Wednesday February 10, 2015, in this paradise of European development, a Haitian man named Claude Jean Harry, nicknamed “Tulile,” who was a humble shoe shine worker, was found hanging in Santiago Park.
Haitian Tourism: A job as a maid, butler, busboy, cashier or sexual receptacles for Northern tourists will not create wealth for Haiti.
Winnie Mandela — Apartheid/white minority rule and neocolonialism is a global system and did not end with the release of Nelson Mandela.
Ezili Dantò: The children are dying. Haiti is dying, dying from the hidden US occupation behind UN mercenary guns. Dying from cholera, dying from Clorox hunger, drought, hurricanes, earthquake evictions, dying in hopelessness and despair
Zili Danto: Maybe George Will intended to make the point that the US empire’s control of Haiti and other little republics’ vote at the UN is not new.
Ezili Dantò: Obama will most likely win again because denial is easier than the hard reality of Obama’s betrayal of Main Street and championing of corporate welfare for Wall Street.
Ezili Dantò: There’s a reason to recall the efforts responsible Haitians make to survive the Western rabid rage hidden behind the do-gooders’ benevolence.
Ezili Danto: Are we Haitians simply not supposed to notice the stark reality that it’s not the white population, the tourists nor the UN folks who are suffering a mass loss of life due to the imported cholera germ to Haiti? But the poorest Black woman’s children, that is, the masses in Haiti?
Zili Danto: It’s way past time the US and UN were out of Haiti. Haitians are not at war; this occupation is racist, about false benevolence, forced assimilation and Western tyranny.
Ezili Danto: So please folks don’t be confused about the power play between the malfini and the mongoose. Between Democrats and Republicans. Or, “between Wilson and Harding,” to quote one of Haiti’s most favorite satirist.
Ezili Dantò: In a nutshell, the UN imported the deadly cholera disease to Haiti, but blames the fatal injury on the victim’s pre-existing conditions.
Ezili Danto: Keep vigilant for the carnival of violence will be blamed on Lavalas and Aristide. No doubt about this, the chessboard is set. The perpetrators will be seen as the peacemakers
