Before we go any further on the intentions etc.
of Michael Dash, it should be noted that he is
an East Indian from Trinidad, who has lived
much of his life in Jamaica and whose wife is
a black/African from Guadeloupe.  That does
not give him any special virtues, but he is not
a white man writing about Haiti.
