Here's the thing, I'll never visit Haiti.  Not because it's a festering shiathole ravaged by economic failure and natural catastrophe, but because of the people.  I used to live in South Florida, where there are a lot of Haitian immigrants.  I know they come from a rough place with a really bad history, and that's probably why they are the way they are, but every single one I met was an asshole.  Now, that might be just bad luck, but I still have yet to meet a Haitian that isn't.  And I welcome your anecdotal evidence (the best kind of evidence) that contradicts mine.  I don't want to dislike and entire country, but I have had nothing but bad experiences with them.

/Jamaica, Puerto Rico, the smaller Caribbean countries, all have wonderful people.  I'm sure they have their share of assholes, too, but my experience has been far weighted in the other direction.

I've met one hatian I liked and it probably doesn't count.  She was in elementry school with me, was adopted by an American couple and lived here since about 4 years old.
Other than that 2nd generation hatian I've met and liked.

I've had the same problem with the French.  I've met a dozen or so French people and only one was likeable.

And the Deep South still fears and loathes Haiti. I mean, they are the only nation to successfully over throw their slave masters and claim independence. This should make them awesome- but they made the mistake of doing this too close to other nations that feared their own slaves would rise up.

Eh, the only Haitian woman I know IRL is a) not an asshole, and b) roughly eleven times hotter than the one in the article.

Statistical anomaly, perhaps.
 
2013-04-05 01:30:14 PM
My sister and her kids are down there all the time.
Installing clean water systems, sewers, etc.
They bathe in rivers, etc.
They are actually pretty well off, but they just like to help out their fellow man.

tourism in Hati?

Is it possible that all the assholes left Haiti, and the only ones left there are pleasant, friendly people?  I live in West Michigan where we have a large population of (descendants of) Dutch immigrants. They are (mostly, not all) conservative, xenophobic, anti-drug, closed-minded people.  Yet Holland (the country, not the city) is largely liberally-minded and progressive.

They have a tourist industry that consists of walled beachfront resorts with armed guards. I remember after the earthquake there were some articles about the resorts just outside of port au prince that were open and doing good business less than 2 weeks after the disaster.

Yeah, Jamaica is quite scary too. Very aggressive people there. I was walking thru the maze of "craft" sellers to  get out of Dunn's River Falls and this woman grabbed my arm, yanked me into her space, and basically demanded I buy something. I politely said "No, thank you" and she goes "What, you don't like black people?"

WTF???

Her fellow sellers joined in taunting me. This is not an isolated incident. Jamaica is known for aggressive and rude people. Many people that go there on cruise ships chose to stay on the ship for that port due to past experiences they've had there.

Haiti is the most corrupt, dirty, misgoverned State in the western hemisphere, and the earthquake only opened up the rot for all the world to see.

No, it flies right in front of the beach low over the water and ends about where those rocks start going out into the water. People of all ages were doing it, even senior citizens. They have about 4 lines that go at once. My work bans access to my Photobucket or I'd post my pictures showing you. I had to get that one (and this one) off Google. It's Labadee, Haiti. Just for cruise ships.  A peninsula fenced off from the rest of Jamaica. Gotta keep the zombies out you know.

I have known, worked with and taught many Haitians and I can pretty confidently state that the problem is you and not them.  Some of the kindest and friendliest immigrants in South Florida.

South Floridians are assholes. The 2 Haitian people I personally know are in Miami and both are wonderful people. Maybe the rest of them down there are assholes. Or maybe you are the problem.

I won't go to Haiti because I'd just as soon to go Somalia.

I've had the similar experience with Mormons...all of which I met at college or through work.

Not a large sample size for sure (less than 10), but every Mormon I've ever met was a serious asshole...and I can pretty much work and get along with anyone. BTW, I'm also 100% sure it's just bad luck...

Like I wrote, could just be bad luck.  My tiny sampling of the population is not even statistically relevant.  I only interacted with probably a couple of dozen in the four years I was there and of those probably less than ten on a regular basis.

I had a Haitian GF once, perhaps 25 years ago. The first time we made out, I discovered she believed in accoustical sex. An amazingly loud groaner/screamer. I didn't know whether to run from the room or collapse in laughter. In balance, being Haitian and all, she was ok.

A friend of mine has a theory that is bullshiat, but does make you think for a second, to the point where I almost buy it. Almost.

Summed up it is : the people who can afford to get out of a country first when social unrest rears its head are those with the cunning cheating sense to see it coming and have made money. Basically the worst of a society gets out first and the good parts are left behind because to cheat their fellow man would be anethema.

/like why people seem to believe criminals were the first out of the eastern bloc countries because of a couple bad experiences.
