Cuhdear Haiti

I feel for those folks in Haiti. And getting ready to write this post I know that real early on in this blog's life (when only Kami used to read) I had written a lil thing after a big hurricane strike down Haiti back in 04.

Cuhdear poor Haiti.

And that aint the last hurricane dem had eidda ya kno!

And yes it does seem like that entire country is afflicted with more burdens than they should have and that they can possibly bear with hurricanes and floods and earthquakes and all types of natural and man-made disasters just lashing those poor people year after year to the point that they cant ketch a break but really is it that they are cursed or is it just the happenstance of being in a location where natural disasters seem to strike more often than most?

Well I dont know, I think its just luck or bad luck of the draw that their side of Hispaniola just happen to be near fault lines and frequent hurricane tracks. De people aint mek demselves and ya dun know that their ancestors didnt well say amm "slavemaster boss can you drop me off at Haiti" so why people like Pat Robertson blaming de people for their predicament so. Cuhdear.

I mean when de man cud get on a Christian tv show and willingly say that the people in Haiti ketching hell cause their ancestors mek a pact wid de devil well then all I can do is shake my head cause to me that is well outta order.

Cause to me when I read that I get the feeling that he juss vex that the people was able to gain their freedom and should have just been content in bondage and slavery back then. Or that them was so inferior an half igrant an starve out an ting so that the only way they could beat the superior French and get free was to get mystical and supernatural forces to join up wid dem. Or maybe they should have just done like other slaves and wait for a liberator to arise from amongst their colonial oppressors. Yes that is what I feel he mean. Musse went an watch Avatar before he talk dat talk ya kno.

But yea I mean yes some de fellas down deyso like dem voodoo and thing an I aint fa all dat sorta ting but let we not try to mek it seem like dem any wickeder than anybody else on this God given earth. If ya looking fa a Sodom and Gomorra den I feel ya wud find one or two right deyso in the US backyard and dem aint get lash wid nuh pestilence or locusts and plagues or natural disasters for being sinful yet so why you would feel that the reason for Haiti's ills is something so?

Why when rich countries (read first world) have a disaster is just because stuff happens but poor (non-white) countries it got to be something with their ideology or religion or something so that cause this disaster to happen. Allya remember the chat a few years back when the Tsumani hit cross the odda side a de world right? How come it just cant be fate like fa the rest?

I am a white female american, and I agree with you. We do not all believe what was said.

Exactly true.

For a long time Pat Robertson has been a major embarrassment to the human race. Ignore him. And even if he is not alone in these sentiments looks to me that it's the minority that think that way.

I don't deny that the main stream media and the writers of the history books we get in school tends to slant Haiti's story so that all we hear is about dictators, corruption, illiteracy, and overall bad governance. Haiti's having had to pay the cash for their soverienty, plus the matter of Uncle Sam's 29 year occupation as factors that have led to the Haiti we see today are often understated, or not stated at all.

But I'm just glad that for the moment almost everybody is just jumping around to see what they can do. Earthquakes, contrary to what Pat might think can hit anybody.

Pat Roberston is a false prophet and a mock Christian. Jesus says: 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.' Pat Robertson and any other so-called Christian out there who would condemn instead of donate, you are doing the work of the devil.

If the Lord was going to strike somewhere down because of sinfulness, none of North America would be standing because if the Haitians deserve that fate, so do all of us.

What he said really annoyed and angered me and to think that most Caribbean people looked up to him back in the day through the 700Club.

People are free to be as crazy as they like, its the ones that put them on national tv and act like what they are saying has meaning, that gives me cause for annoyance.

Hope we can catch up soon.

I was very amused by Pat Robertson. The man has a delivery that is unmatched. did you hear him when he said "and the devil said yes" with the perfect poker face. Lol I think NBC should make him an offer

I have no idea who Pat Robertson is.

I don't even know what people wuz saying after the Tsunami.

You see, most folks in Guyana don't have time for dem kinda talk. All we know is that people suffering, and we raising funds to try to help.
