A country in the Caribbeans that shares an island with the Dominican Republic, while the Dominican Republic makes some good baseball talents, Haiti has had the unfortunate luck of being hit with a whole lot of stuff, Earthquakes, hurricanes, mother earth hates Haiti, but that doesn't mean we do, well, unless you do.
They're also quite the soccer team for the size of the country.

Jonny: Well, they're Haiti, first off-

In 1804 the second American nation to achieve independence, based on the values of liberty and equality as derived from the French Revolution. Haiti has faced many challenges including but not limited to:

- Not being able to create a stable and fully independent economy post-revolution (they didn't know how to do other

things besides farm, and most plantation farms were destroyed so they had to start from scratch),
- Being embargo-ed by the U.S. and restricted by Europe and it's colonies which meant they couldn't trade and really

couldn't get information and resources to industrialize as fast as everyone else
- America and Europe thought black people couldn't grow an economy on their own, but they didn't allow them to (what

are you going to do with out trade? Also U.S. didn't want their ideas to spread to American slaves)
- Cycles of relatively fine and poor rulers (monarchs, presidents, and dictators)
- The U.S. embargo lasted more than half a century
- The imperialist United States military occupation of Haiti from 1915-1934
- Unforgiving earthquakes and hurricanes which have repeatedly halted and set back production cycles
Karen: Why is Haiti so poor? Their only problems are earthquakes.
Jean: Haiti has been held down to suppress this black nation that had the strength to free themselves from a more powerful nation. And yes, earthquakes too.
