<<If you are Haitian and side with the elites and Duvalierists<========
I am getting so confused with this prolonged divisive debate...
And here I go... doubting all my memories of those years growing up in
I thought Duvalierists were "of the "Middle class" so called...
and certainly, as PAPA DOC stressed, "NOIRS"
whereas so called, "mulatres" - by virtue of
their "teinted" blood, were automatically classified as "suspicious"
individuals" - traitors of the race... ... ..
In addition if those "shady" individuals chose to express themselves
in the streets in French?! : oppressors of the masses!
but yet, one remembers Papa Doc's famous looong speeches to the
"citoyens" (the masses?) in a "scholarly" French!
Did we grow up in the same place?...
Who - what is "elite" ???????????
