New York Times: The Awaiting of the Grand Bayakou in Haiti

Toulimen - January 28 2011, 8:33 PM

The word bayakou came from one of the African tribes named Bayaka that was brought to Hispaniola by the French Colonizers.

Those people are related to the Dogon tribe in Mali and they live in Desdunes and all around that town. Bayakans are known for latrines cleaners and sorcerer priests too. They can kill you for any mistakes that you may have with them. For the New York Times to use such a title like that against Haiti is very derogatory to Haiti and all Haitians and this means that Haiti is a latrine country where all Haitians are latrines' people.

And no one says nothing and there was no protest aginst New York Times for the use of such a word to talk about Haitian politics.

If it were under Jean-Claude Duvalier they would get sued and that word would be banished from their mouth.

I posted that article on this web to see what Haitian bloggers could say and no one has said nothing meaning that all Haitians are latrine cleaners and Haiti is a latrine country.

When Haitians will stop others from discriminating them in such a manner?

Are we awaiting a Grand Bayakou as reported on a New York Times article?

Are you all Bayakous?
