Fact is the ancient French racist settlers literally butchered much of the landscape as they mistreated their slaves, by growing too few types of crops all over the Haitian territory.
I was very astonished to see how they could witness the wrong effects of so called intensive agriculture so early over there.
It ruined their soil fertility to some very wide extent.

However, the landscape and the soil could probably be fixed and recover with some help from the international community.
The French should pay taxes for this cause.
It's pretty clear that the Haitians have been a martyred people, so we owe them an enormous debt. Not the other way round.
So does the US, for having mistreated their republic in the past as well, for mere racist reasons.
Well said
