#1414: Haiti: poorest land.... Gill comments on a post

From: mark gill <markgill@midwest.net>

the "hint" in this post is that many have the idea that black people cannot
rule a country properly?

well, there is little real difference between Haiti and El Salvador,
Honduras, Guatamala, etc......and, these countries are ruled by small elites
classes also, who consider themselves either as white or spanish......
