Lloyd, this argument about "the language of our masters"...

Lloyd, this argument about "the language of our masters", which if I remember correctly is from the author Frantz Fannon, is outdated and can no longer apply in what is now a mass communication world, where most evolved communities are part of a global society where specific languages no longer determine how we communicate.What you call the language of our masters has not been the language of anyone's masters in nearly two hundred years.

All post colonial nations speak the language that they inherited from the western nations which had colonize them; none have made it an endless issue like Haiti has. Yet they are all doing better than Haiti is today.

The French language is not our issue.

Our issue today is a leader who is spineless; does not know the concept of the word honor and dignity; has the intelligence of a swine, and has--because of his personal lack of character--turned Haiti into a beggar nation.

Language is never a real issue.

It is only a subject that is used to hide real problems.
