Shinning the white pearl again...
Haiti For Sale
Few people know that the US simply took
an island belonging to Haiti and has never looked back. It's par for
the course. Similar to what UN/Clinton is spearheading, presiding
over, RIGHT NOW, in terms of Haitian territories like Mole St. Nicolas,
Ile de la Tortue, Gulf of La Gonave, or at Fort Liberte.
Few people know that enslaved Blacks from the US were sent to two
Haitian Islands. In one instance to work US mines, in the other as
an effort for solving the US Black enslavement issue faced by Abraham
Lincoln during the Civil War. Few people know of the blood spilled,
death and sufferings resulting from US institutionalized malevolence
towards defenseless Haiti and Blacks from the US as played out on
two Haitian Islands.
No, it's not the island that's the subject of this essay. Not La Gonave.
But Ile de la Vache and Navassa Island in Haiti.
Ile de la Vache
and Navassa Island
Abraham Lincoln deported over 400 enslaved Blacks from the U.S. to
a then, fairly isolated Island of Haiti called - Ile a Vache. But
the US government did not inform the Haitian authorities of their
use of Haitian territory, so Haitian authorities didn't know the US
Blacks were there or needed help... Many starved to death on Ile a
Vache. (See, Lincoln and Haiti: The African American Exodus that Didn’t
Happen and, more recently Haiti (Ile a Vache) island unscathed by
quake, but tourists stay away .)
Blacks starving in Haiti, due to US government policy, is well illustrated
by the recent empty Clinton apology and the continuing "HOPE
II" legislation mandating sweatshops at .38 cents an hour wages,
dumping of Miami rice and other such "aid" and "reforms"
for Haiti by the "do-gooders." As a result of these US free
trade policies, 830,000 rural Haitian jobs were lost and hundreds
of thousands of Haitians were forced into the capital looking for
work, where eventually they would meet up with Jan 12 at 4:53. The
Island pillaged and plundered. The people die and die as a result.
Navassa Island is a perfect example.
Navassa Island in Haiti was a fairly uninhabited Haitian island, not
much different from Ile a Vache back then. The US simply stole it
from Haiti in 1857 for its guano resources, and mining took place
between 1865 and 1898.
"Guano phosphate was a superior organic fertilizer that became
a mainstay of American agriculture in the mid-19th century. In 1889
the island's actual operation passed to the Navassa Phosphate Company
of Baltimore, Maryland. The Navassa Phosphate Company mined Navassa
with African-American laborers."
African-American blood was spilled on Navassa Island also, not just
Black Haitian blood. (For more, go to - Navassa Island Incident 1889-1891.
Abusive and inhumane conditions provoked the African American workers
to revolt against the mining company bosses. US war ships and military
took over security operations for big-business mining after the African-Americans
workers exercising their human right to self-defense were brutally
Today, as President Obama sits in the White House, the US is busy
taking Haiti's deep water ports, strategically located islands and
the mainland. Period, no comma. And the beat goes on, on and on...
La Gonave, Ile de la Tortue, Labadie beaches, Mole St. Nicolas, Miragoane
ports and shores, Jacmel...Blacks are NOT supposed to own prime lands
much less oceanfronts, seas, islands and mountains after mountains.
The road to justice is long for Ayisyen.
