Well thats a thought.......
That's really funny
If Haitians could really do voodoo, they wouldn't be the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere...
Unless, of course, we're talking voodoo economics...
The myth of White superiority may be one of the most pernicious in history. For one example, any fair reading of the history of Haiti makes clear that tRump's sainted Europeans – who not by the way were themselves illegal immigrants to the New World – have much evil to answer for, including turning the entire island into a plantation. Defenders of whiteness will point to Papa Doc and Baby Doc, but those two were by-products of generations of European neglect in Haiti. This dodge also pervades in the States, where the powers that be blame those they neglected for the ignorance and poverty of the enslaved and the wage slaves they discriminated against, long, long after the Civil War. Indeed, they continue to do so even unto the present day.
Indeed, history in general shows Europeans have pillaged and raped the planet wherever they trod. Ask the millions of Natives in the New World, whose peoples were decimated and whose lands were stolen, about the moral superiority of Europeans. Moral superiority? That ignores a thousand years of nearly continuous war among Europeans. Indeed, it was these "morally superior" Europeans who started two World Wars and exterminated six million Jews. Nor should we forget the quasi-religious wars of Europe continued to the end of the 20th Century, including between the British and the Irish. Indeed, to this day one cannot be a Catholic and rule the UK.
To quote Charlie Rangel, who observed this about Junior Bush, "So much for the myth of White superiority".
