Ummm... well, it does mine!  I have sat in churches in Haiti and listened to 
white American missionaries preach to Haitians that the reason they are black 
is because they bear the "mark of Cain", they are *cursed*, and as proof, 
these missionaries cite the material suffering of black Haitians!  It's 
revolting.  They discourage political activity, they sat silently through the 
coup d'etat and the three years of misery which followed, they didn't even 
protest the murder of Sylvio Claude by Army-backed thugs!  They seek contact 
with American pastors to get food aid, and then sell the "sinistre" right off 
the wharf!  These are not things I heard about, these are things I witnessed 
with my own eyes.

Peace and love,
