An island that was recently hit by a magnitude-7 earthquake
"Dazed survivors wandered past dead bodies in rubble-strewn streets Wednesday, crying for loved ones, and rescuers desperately searched collapsed buildings as fear rose that the death toll from Haiti's devastating earthquake could reach into the tens of thousands."

located on the island of hispaniola next to the dominican republic. French and haitian creole are the most spoken languages there. Not only black people live there. there are people of different shades there too.
Haiti is a beautiful country, but has lots of political problems.

A country located in the Caribbean. It shares the Island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic. It has been having many problems in its economy due to its numerous ruthless and selfish dictators. It's been in a state of civil unrest for years.

It is also the first black nation to win it's independence in the Americas.
Trudy: Did you know Haiti used to be called the "Jewel of the Caribbean"?

Judy: Really? I heard that it used to be populated by the Taïno indians until the whites, spanish, and french brought African slaves into the country for sugarcane plantations.

Trudy: That is true. and ever since then, the slaves revolted with Toussaint Louverture and won their independence. I don't think those whites, spaniards, and french ever forgave them.

Judy: Oh yeah. Since then, the Haitians have been paying for their independence. They have a long way to go until they're stable.

Haiti is one of the biggest Islands in the Caribbean, sharing its borders with the Dominican Republic. Although misjudge Haiti is a better country than it is thought to be, media of course try to portray Haiti as an hell hole. Not true I’ve been there and lived there only problem is extremely hot temperature and mosquitoes. Just to clarify something Haiti was under American occupation, period in which the U.S took a very large amount of gold and treasure (during early 1900’s under Theodore Roosevelt). Haiti has not have the greatest luck with leaders, everyone come with great promises but end up still millions.
