My father worked like a horse from the age of 14, and had to raise his siblings.

His mother died during birth, and his father went MIA after the death.

My family was not rich in Haiti, but we were Middle Class.

I went to private school, extra curricular activites, piano lesson, dance lesson, and had tutors.

I was treated like a second class citizen in my own country by the mulatos, because I had nappy hair. My father suffered, and was robbed of his hard earned money.

WESNER APPOLLON pulled a gun on him, and made him withdraw his entire savings plus payroll money.

He was a business man, and lived off the land. WESNER APPOLLON descendants are now living in Queens, New York. They are doing well financially, and I am not. My father made me promise to never repeat it, but both my parents are now dead. They would been destitute if I did not bring them to the US, and they die here in dignity.

My dad never received a pension, but was able to collect social security under my mother's. She was younger, and managed to work ten years in the USA. I lost my condo, because I had to take a home equity loan to pay for their funerals.

I am angry, because my dad did not deserved this kind of treatment.

He was not a politician, and never interfere in political's affairs in Haiti.

We lived in terror during the Duvalier regime, and my mother became a diabetic from the stress.

I am traumatized, and will suffer for the rest of my life due to the Duvalier regime.

We were blessed, because we did not die or exile.

My parents would probably live a few more years, but both died with broken hearts.

My mother who never worked outside the home her entire life, but had a business at home could not cope with the 9-5 system in the US. I could go on, and on. I suffered discrimination in my country, and now in the US. It is the same story all over the world the lighter, and straighter your hair is the more money or status you have. It is the same thing in Haiti, and not only in Port au Price.

The Arabs are all over Haiti, and in all four corners.

They control the money, and it makes you wonder.


We are clueless, and probably do not understand the real purpose of Arabs in Haiti or other islands like Trinidad.
