    I caught the 60 minutes piece on this tonight. It was heartwrenching and amazing that Haiti a shit country created by a slave revolt. A country made of nearly entirely Blacks of African ancestry and slave ancestry.

    Yet they practice slavery and its 100% LEGAL in Haiti. Its called restaveks. Child of poor Haitian (which is an oxymoron, since everyone in Haiti is poor) either sell their children ot give them away. The "rich" families have all rights over these children until they are 18. These children are treated like DOGS! They work, sleep on the floor, don't get an education, can't leave without permission, are barely given food, clothes or anything. In the 60 minute piece, its said that many of the female Restaveks are routinely raped. Also in the piece, the former restavek stated he was worked night and day, then slept on the floor, when the family left he was to wait outside without food or water. These children remain slaves until they are 18 and then are just tossed into the streets without food, money, an education, job skills or a place to stay!

    This is crap and fully supported and legal under Haitian law! Amazing, but where it the outcry? Where is the angry! Where are the liberal hypocrites calling for boycotts? Where is the hypocritical international community screaming for reform? Where is the UN sanctions? Where is the UN period?

    Since this is a Black and in all due cases "African" country they get a free pass! Similar to the pograms against Whites in South Africa! It a travesty that the World Cup sanctioned its prestigious event in a Government Instituting Racial Discrimination country! I digress, why is slavery acceptable, because its by an "African" nation?

    Note: Yes Haiti is a Caribbean Nation in Western Hemisphere, yet I call it African, because its viewed in a similar way. Its former slaves taken from Africa.

    Note: Its estimated 200K-300K Haitian children are slaves in Haiti!

    Also, there is no need to turn yet another valid discussion into a race-baiting thread.

    And if you text a 4 digit number to another number, you can have $10 added to your cellphone bill to help enable this behavior.

    So now it's race baiting if you simply mention that you think things may be ignored b/c they're done by blacks?

    You're such a little hack turd.

    He offered up zero evidence to prove his point. Besides, the thread could of gone without it least from the OP.

    ZERO evidence? So are you suggesting that perhaps Haiti isn't predominantly black?

    80–85% of Haitians (depending on the source) have some African ancestry; the remaining 15–20% of the population are mostly of mixed-race background. A small percentage of the non-black population consists primarily of Caucasian/white Haitians; mostly of Arab,[113] Western European (French, German, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish), and Jewish origin.[114][115] Haitians of Asian descent (mostly of Chinese origin) number approximately 400.[114]
    [edit] Haitian diaspora

    Haiti - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    There's your proof.

    As for the rest, maybe he WANTED to include that part; and who are you to say he couldn't?

    I'm referring to his point that they're given a free pass because they're African. I wasn't denying they aren't a majority African.

    I'm not saying he couldn't, I'm simply saying he has no evidence to that. That makes it his opinion and race baiting.

    Or it makes it a nasty trick that MANY on here do, throw out a claim offer no proof and then call out those who won't disprove it. Funny that you always seem to find only those who hold opposing views to your own to call out for that bullshit. I gave you one great example of a leftie doing so to give you a chance to say something and you declined with a very vague "that thread didn't interest me" LOL you are a partisan hack bert, deal with it.
