History of Haiti
At the Conference of Archaie in 1803, Dessalines was the person who reputedly tore the white stripe from the French tricolor and determined Haiti's flag to be two stripes, a blue and red one, to symbolize that the "white" had been ripped out of Haiti, perhaps as a prophecy of what was to come in a few months later.
Another famous tale of December 31, 1803, the eve of Haitian Independence,
is that when the declaration of independence was read out the people protested
it wasn't what they wanted to hear. Boisrond-Tonnerrer, an underling of
Dessalines, reported called out "This doesn't say what we really feel.

The Jewish Holocaust of Haiti
Luis de Torres, Columbus' Converso interpreter, was the first Jew to step foot
in Haiti. The first Jewish immigrants came from Brazil in the 17th century, after
Haiti was conquered by the French. These Conversos were all murdered or expelled, along with the rest of the white population, during the revolt of Toussaint L'Ouverture in 1804.

"The wretched refuse of your teeming shore"
- (commentary from The Salt Lake Tribune)
For instance, in the 1970s and 1980s, thousands of Haitians abandoned their land and headed for South Florida, bringing with them high incidences of tuberculosis and AIDS infection.
When they landed in the United States, many of them were unfamiliar with American life in the
20th century: Indoor toilets were strange; traffic was horrifying; life often was worse here
for them than it had been in Haiti.

Former Haitian President Jean Bertrand Aristide visits South Florida

he’s working on getting dual citizenship for Haitians living here.

Aristide wishes a warm welcome to his Florida constituents
The necklace, of course, is a terrifying instrument of torture and murder that
members of the ANC have used on thousands of fellow black Africans. For those
unfamiliar with this "beautiful tool" (Aristide's words), it is an automobile tire filled
with gasoline or diesel that is put around the neck of a helpless victim and set
aflame. Unfortunately for Aristide and his image doctors, he was caught on
television cameras in a murderous harangue inciting his followers to necklace the
opposition. Embarrassing (and damning) video footage of Aristide's speech to his
tire-and-gasoline-toting supporters in Port-au-Prince on September 27, 1991 is a
little tough to reconcile with the saintly image. Here's a sample of the gospel
according to Jean-Bertrand:
