    How about that NY Post article today about Yele; wyclef’s charity?

  • No shots at anyone here, I appreciate and applaud all rappers, entertainers, etc. who donate money to causes like Katrina relief, Haiti, etc.

    But there is nothing like someone giving up there time to go down to the actual scene and see what they can do.

    Common is the ideal Hip-Hop artist.

    Well if common wanted to go deeper into his fact finding mission he would look at the imperialist policies implemented by America and numerous European countries. These policies brought slavery from Africa to Haiti wiped out the indigenous population and exploited all there natural resources. Haiti was the first country in the western hemisphere after it gained its independence from the French to be a fully free society. They were at one point the richest society in the western hemisphere and led the world in cotton production in the 18th and part of the 19th century. They produced 75% of the worlds sugar cane in the same time period. Colonialism destroyed the country, its society, its history, and its future. So when Haitians see Americans travel to their country wondering why the country is one of the poorest countries in the world they wonder how on earth can you not know? Most Latin American countries have the same history. Of course what I typed is an extremely brief examination of why Haiti is the way it is but the fact that very few Americans and Europeans understand their contribution to the current state of Haiti is very telling of how disassociated from reality these countries societies are.

    ^ good points, only thing I’d add is I would say these people know what they did to Haiti they just like to pretend like to pretend as if they don’t. I.e the “discovery” of America. The plight of the native American etc.
