Personal Accomplishments do Not Make Your Country Any Better
After reading Buzzfeed’s cancerous article about Trump’s comments, I could not help but laugh. Basically, for those who missed it, there have been reports that said that President Trump called Haiti a “shit-hole” country in a UN meeting. Regardless if he is correct, that is not what this article is solely about.
Buzzfeed’s article was, of course, trying to prove Trump wrong, but failing. Miserably. They pinned a bunch of tweets made by people from Haiti listing their accomplishments.
The reason this article is so funny is that regardless of what these people accomplish, it does not make their country any better.
Sorry to be the one to say it, but personal accomplishments does not constitute a well developed, safe, or economically sound country, at all.
Here is the truth, Haiti is a VERY dangerous country. The Canadian government gave this warning to travelers:
Exercise with a high degree of caution in Haiti due to high crime rates in various parts of the country and ongoing political tension. Avoid non-essential travel to neighborhoods of Martissant, Carrefour, Bel Air and Cité Soleil, in the Port-au-Prince area, as the security situation is particularly unstable and dangerous.
Well isn’t that putting it lightly, and that’s from Canada, the “nicer” country.
Are you from the US? Even better for you. BBC wrote, “US citizens have been victims of violent crime, including murder and kidnapping, predominantly in the Port-au-Prince area. No one is safe from kidnapping, regardless of occupation, nationality, race, gender, or age,”
So steadfast are you to jump to the aid of these people, at least realize you are a target if you go there. Want to blame Trump? Just remember what Hillary did there. As reported by the national review, “The Clinton foundation got rich off poor Haitians.”
Before you become outwardly angry about language which was used to describe a country, read up on said country.
