As hurricane Matthew wreaks havoc in the Caribbean, it leaves a trail of death and destruction in Haiti. Although the disaster cause by hurricane Matthew pales in comparison to the earthquake that hit the island in 2010, Matthew does present the opportunity for us to revisit the 2010 disaster and the subsequent “recovery”. The people in Haiti who are still living in tents six years after the earthquake, would ask; what recovery?
Whatever happened to the recovery effort spearheaded by former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush? Whatever to the hundreds of millions that was raised for this effort? Where did all that money go, because it surely did not go to the Haitian people?
The money collected by the Clintons through the Clinton foundation instead went to building posh hotels in Haiti with none of it getting to the poor Haitians.
The Haitian noticed that very little of this aid money actually got to poor people in Haiti. Some projects championed by the Clintons, such as the building of industrial parks and posh hotels, cost a great deal of money and offered scarce benefits to the truly needy. To complicate matters even more, the younger brother of Hillary Clinton is one of the major beneficiaries of these posh hotels. So Clinton foundation in Haiti is one huge family scheme to take people money under the guise of rebuilding the country but funnel the money back to them. Port-au-Prince was supposed to be rebuilt; it was never rebuilt. Projects aimed at creating jobs proved to be bitter disappointments. Haitian unemployment remained high, largely undented by the funds that were supposed to pour into the country. Famine and illness continued to devastate the island nation.
All of this means nothing to the 98% of Black voters who will be voting for Hillary Clinton this November. Blacks have been so numb to their condition that to them, Hillary’s piss is like ice cold beer on a Sunday afternoon while watching football.
Of course Americans have been trained to believe that there are only two options, so the only other choice apart from Hillary, is Donald Trump.
Donald Trump is a bigot and he does not pretend to love Muslims. Donald Trump is a racist and he does not pretend to love Blacks or Hispanics. Donald Trump hates women and he does not try to hide it. Donald Trump does not pay federal income tax but he does so in the confines of the law and he is proud of doing so. In other word, Donald Trump is an honest man.
The great Malcom X once said, “I have more respect for a man who lets me know where he stands even if he is wrong, than one that acts like an angel but is nothing but a devil.”
In this case, Donald Trump is the man who is wrong but at least he lets us know where he stands. Hillary Clinton is the one who is acting like an angel but is nothing but a devil.
Only a devil could see the devastation that the Haitians are going through and keep money that was collected on their behalf away from them. Only a devil would look to profit from poor people’s suffering.
So Blacks will go to the poll and vote for the devil who pretends to be an angel rather than the devil who makes it clear that he is a devil and they won’t even try to find out what the green party or independent candidates are about. That is mental slavery in a nutshell.
