Kapwa, I understand your frustration; however, there are some things you need to consider.

Asking for what we are due is fine, but when to ask for it is what must be considered.

What I want is for Haiti to start asking France and the Dominican Republic for her money back that's what I want. France was wrong for taking the money and the Dominicans were wrong for not reimbursing Haiti back for the same money we paid to France for their side of the island.

Que je veux est pour l'Haïti pour commencer à demander à la France et à la République Dominicaine pour son argent c'est que je veux. La France a été incorrecte pour prendre de l'argent et les Dominicains se trompent pour ne pas rembourser l'Haïti pour le même argent que nous avons payé en France pour leur côté de l'île.

Of course, what kapwa said in regard to Haiti paid the debt to France is true, but you wouldn't know that unless you are Haiti, and a Haitian educated who knows the history of Haiti.

Indeed it is true, but more important is the fact that Haiti is the only Caribbean island that completely paid off their debts during the colonial years.

There was a time we were MEN. We did not crawl on our bellies to anyone.

Is that true what Kapwa just said?

The fact that Haiti's debt to France was paid for the entire Island of Hispaniola?

It's the first time I heard

When France refused to recognize Haiti's independence 200 years ago, Haiti was forced to pay its colonizer the equivalent of $22 billion in today's money, to be free. Now Haiti wants that money back, and will not take NO for an answer.

In 1838, Haiti was forced to pay a ransom of 90 million gold francs to its French colonial masters to break the economic and diplomatic embargo that France had placed on the new republic after refusing to recognize its independence.
