'I was very happy to read "" by Hilary Beckles because it exposed a reality that the vast majority, and even African-Americans have no idea of,' writes Kwaku O. Kushindana.

Greetings!

The African People of Louisiana, a good percentage were brought in from Haiti...Thus, I and many of us here can really relate with what has happened to African People there in Haiti.

I was very happy to read ‘The hate and the quake’ by Hilary Beckles because it exposed a reality that the vast majority, and even African-Americans have no idea of… There is a so-called ‘progressive’ E. Eltherber Miller (Howard University) who is even calling for the US Military (I served six years in the US military!) to take over the effort in Haiti, totally ignoring the reality of what the US Military has done.

There is a show called ‘Flashpoints’ on Pacafica from California which told of the real-deal, ‘favourite’ charities are taking supplies, the US Army has imposed militarisation and the those who need it most (food) aren't getting it (Remember, Hurricane Katrina here in Louisiana).

I will be sure and book mark your publication and begin to read it on a regular basis.
