Re “Trump ignites MLK Day racial firestorm, Free Press Jan. 18-20 edition:
Haiti was the first black-run country in the Western World. Beginning in the early 20th century, Middle Eastern immigrants began taking control of the country. Those few families now control the economics and politics of Haiti, along with the Catholic Church.
From 1916 to 1934, the United States occupied Haiti to maintain economic and political stability in the Caribbean. Since then, the ruling families have kept control with the help of the United States and France, and in recent years, the United Nations.
President John Kennedy once said, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.”
We are the ones responsible for the present state of Haiti.
Having spent time in Haiti, I personally know how hard the Haitian people have to work to survive. Haitian immigrants to the United States have proven to be assets to our country.
It appears again that President Trump does not have a clue about the contributions that minority immigrant people make to our country. The way to “Make America Great Again” is to get Mr. Trump out of office.
