Wyclef Jean ???
mysteriously a recently submitted thread about the potential failure of wyclef jean’s wish to be a candidate for the presidency of haiti disappeared from merb ??
i’m wondering who removed it ? moderator or thread starter ?
to my understanding, i sensed the thread starter had issued the thread as a complaint because wyclef jean is a native french speaker. i took exception as i found the thread starter’s intent had a racial linguistic overtone and i countered with the following. curiously after i posted my statement and question the thread disappeared.
whether he's white, black or any mix, whether he speaks french, english, italian, swahili or any other language, or whatever religious belief a person follows, all this doesn't matter if he or she fails to meet the domestic qualifications of a country.
Grand Stratégaire would you ask to same question if the candidate was an english only speaking fanatically religious muslim born in iran and wants
to be the president of the united states?

The thread starter removed it.
What real qualifications does the guy really have? This could be a real disaster.

He should at least started out on the council and eventually move up to president.
I'm glad his bid was rejected.
Will history repeat itself when he discovers billions of dollars in the treasury and ignore the starving masses?
Your statement is probably right in what will occur once again but the money isn't there.

This should give you an idea :
I believe the 'official policy' for this is called 'Subvert the Administration policy'
Back then I believe they were using 'pumpkin soup' to get rid of the shall we say 'evidences' ?
I bet the paved road from Jimini and PAP is still working just fine.
I am sure there are educated people in the country or even educated ex-pats that can do a much better job running Haiti than some musician.
C parce que le 'monsieur' aime te critiquer....
