Understanding the black immigrant

I wrote a post yesterday out of anger about Trump, but in retrospect, it should’ve been about those buffoons in the Haitian government. I’m still saying, “Fuck Trump,” but I must also attack the catalysts for his venom.
Most Americans have no idea what it’s like for a person to leave their homeland in search of a better life elsewhere. The only references they have, are those romanticized television footage of Europeans invading Ellis island and the stories of white immigrants coming to America to help build this country, and to create a better life for themselves. Wrong! America was already built by the enslaved Africans. The Europeans came over to reap the benefits. Don’t believe the hype! By the time the Europeans landed on the shores of New York, the African slaves had built an oasis for them, while they were still living in hell and bondage themselves.
As a kid, I always wondered why my father left his homeland to come to America. I didn’t process his explanation until I became an adult. Nobody wants to leave their native land to move to a new country to be humiliated and adapt to a new culture, unless they are forced to do so. I believe Papa Doc Duvalier was still president of Haiti when my father embarked on his journey to America. It was no promise land when he arrived here. He was barely earning minimum wage at the ripe young age of 25, when he was still full of potential. America would take away all his potential and dream, because he was forced to assimilate into a new culture, learn a new language, and work a menial job that he wouldn’t otherwise work in his homeland. My father was a trained accountant back in Haiti, but due to his race and a language barrier when he first arrived to America, in addition to the American school system not recognizing his credentials from Haiti, he was forced to wash dishes and accepted other menial positions, in order to support his family that were back in Haiti. He’s a proud man, and always earned his due. He has worked hard and received as many training as possible, in order to achieve his dream of owning a home, and to provide for his family. By the time my father reached his mid 30’s, he had worked hard enough to bring his entire family to the states legally. As a matter of fact, every single member of my family has assimilated into American society and they are all now American citizens. In addition, my father had plenty of American born children after getting married and settling here. Among our family members, there are plenty of productive college graduate professionals, including myself.
Most Americans don’t understand the struggles of newly arrived black immigrants in a country that is already racist against its own black citizens. It’s a double whammy, because sometimes the fellow black brothers and sisters are no less racist toward black foreigners than the white people. We all have had to endure prejudice and racist behavior coming from our fellow black men and women, in addition to the white racist system. Immigrants are not in this country by choice, it’s usually a forced decision to escape destitution forced upon them by the western world in their own country. Of course, they always have cohorts who work with them to enforce their white supremacy. Those sellouts need to be shot! America is responsible for the hunger that’s been going on in Haiti and across Africa. These people are bloodsuckers who like to suck the blood out of a country, and then turn around to expose to the world their destitute state. America has destroyed the livestock industry in Haiti. They have destroyed agriculture in Haiti. They have influenced infrastructure in Haiti in the most negative way, and they have taken away the social fiber that instilled pride in Haitians.
The ignorance of Trump is also the ignorance of most Americans, black and white. Unfortunately, we also must hold accountable those Haitian puppets in Haiti that are part of the government, placed in power by the US government. In the last 60 years or so, no Haitian leader ran Haiti without the approval of the US government. The one and only elected Haitian president, Jean Bertrand Aristide, was removed, when he went against US policy toward Haiti. I didn’t mention Aristide to give him props or acknowledge his great efforts. He walked into a corrupted system backed by the US government, and he didn’t have the IQ to rearrange that system and create a balance that benefited both, the poor that supported him, and the rich who have been running the country to the ground. Chess is not his forte, so he turned to stealing for himself as well. Having said that, the US government has been there in every step, and their role has always been to humiliate Haiti, while in cahoots with the French, the British and the Spaniards, because Haitians long ago embarrassed them and defunct their claim of white supremacy.
When the “earthquake” or US HARP program, targeted Haiti, the first people on the ground to steal from the Haitian people were the Clintons. They ravaged Haiti financially and left the country in total disaster, while making their family super rich. The Clintons are part of that white supremacy machine that also destroyed black America through legislation Bill Clinton introduced specifically for the destruction of the black family. The prison industrial complex was created by Bill Clinton. These private prisons relied on Clinton to keep them filled to capacity, because the Clintons invested heavily in private prisons filled with black people. Why did Haitians even trust the Clintons? White people always want to fix their mistakes with a simple apology, while black lives have been destroyed. Not withholding the truth, Haiti is in a devastated state, due in part because of a former crackhead imposed on the people to be president by the US government. That said crakchead, known as Michel Martelly AKA “Sweet Micky,” has stolen more money from the coffers than any Haitian president in history, without having done nothing but sell the riches of the country to America and Canada. I’m still wondering why that asshole is even still alive. Haitians have never been cowards, but somehow and someway, the difficulties of their daily lives have forced them to cower, and always in search of a place to run for a better life.
The complexities of being Haitian American is not easy to explain on a blog, but understand that Haitians have never sought white compassion. We are a determined people and nothing that is thrown at us can shake our resilience. I’m proud of my heritage and all Haitians should walk with their heads up, because we are the liberators of all minority people in the free world. America was stolen, but Haitians were Africans stolen from Africa and forced to call Haiti home, and also made it the most feared island in the entire world. Remember that, jack!
