#1614: Creole vs French: A comment
RIGHT ON !! CREOLE IT MUST BE !
all this debate about whether or not schools, universities, etc.. should
teach in CREOLE, is a very interesting debate. indeed, trying to make sence
out of why or why not creole is good, only if the debate is honest.
the key question should be: what language do haitians understand and speak
better than any other language. the answer of course is CREOLE ! now if
haitians understand and speak creole better than any other language they
should be tought in CREOLE.
I personally believe that those who refuse to accept this fact are not
debating seriously or they are very limited as "intellectuals". this is olso
an issue of class conciousness and identity.
i must say that i truely believe only when a revolution takes place in Haiti
will CREOLE and the true culture of the haitian people be imposed. at the
moment french and american colonialism/imperialism as well the ruling elive
are still in controle of power we can continue to debate this subject but
until there is a socialist revolution in Haiti the will and needs of the
haitian masses will will not be met.
therefore those of us who seriously believe that creole and haitian culture
should occupy first place must build a revolutionary movement which will
solve the probelm once and for all.
what's your opinion? i would like to know?
KENBE LA !
