6785: RE: 6774/Nekita (fwd)
From: archim <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Really pleased to see that Nekita responded to this funny
discussion regarding "Dirty Money". When I read the posting about
women ("marchands") keeping their money in their panties, I just
cracked-up! I wanted to respond, but I thought it would be a bit
un-nerving for some of our readers to hear from the "archim" on the
subject of dirty money and women's panties. Also my comment, which I
will now write since I have been emboldened by Nekita, might surely
make our readers wonder how the archim knows anything about women's
But, you see, I have been around for a good, long while, and I *do*
know about Haitians and especially Haitian marchands, and I know that
most of them don't even wear panties! And one doesn't need to go and
check the women to discover that! Nekita is positively correct. The
marchands may surely put their money somewhere where most others will
not think to look for it, but it is not in their panties.
Haitian money is filthy because of the way it is handled, not
necessarily because of where it is kept. Additionally, much Haitian
money is held-on to for a long time, and it gets dirty easily.
Haitiens usually roll the bills into a ball and stick that ball
wherever it is convenient...and safe.
And let's remember, unfortunately, that Haiti is a bit dirty to
begin with...and that's normal in a society with persons who are
struggling very hard to even exist. It takes a lot of effort to keep
things clean here, money not withstanding!
Now, let's start a discussion on the merits of passing out bras to
the native women in order to get them to better know Jesus! That's
what lots of American Protestant missionaries did in Africa years ago:
they found it "disturbing" to have to deal with a society where women
were usually "topless", so they gave them bras (and made them wear
them) before they fed them and worked to convert them!
I wonder if Jesus really cares!!!
