Let me tell you the truth about Haiti This is haiti in the flesh. These sights are far from rare; yet that is not how we are portrayed. We are shown as weak, pathetic even, and unable to govern ourselves. Thats the message that they say Haiti has to offer. Well i beg to differ. It’s my duty as a haitian to advertise Haiti for what it truly is. You see this hate and belittlement of Haiti dates back to 1804. Because how dare this ‘niggers think they can free themselves.’ So this isn’t simply a haitian thing but a black thing. In fact, after we gain our independence we were forced to pay very high taxes in order to be recognized and even afterwords countries such as France and America refused to buy any of our goods in hopes that the economy would cripple and in our despair we would beg the white man to come to our rescue. Well, we are still here. We are still free. As in my language we say ‘nou led min nou la’ (we are ugly but we are here). And we do not say it with our heads low, no no not at all we say it with pride to show our indifference to any negative perception of us. I love this country where the oceans are so clear they reflect your soul, where the mountains are so high they make you feel small again. And to those who pity us, from lack of exposure of who we truly are. I would like to say in behalf of haiti that ‘We may not have it all, but we are ok’

It’s easy to take off all your clothes and have sex. People do it all the time. But opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… Now that’s being naked.
