The Duvaliers were stooges of Washington

Perhaps. But that doesn’t mean they also weren’t corrupt and ruthless dictators who raped their own country.

People can be more than evil in one way, you know. Usually are. :-)

It’s what the imperialists are forever looking for.

I suppose that’s so. Now, please provide (1) a summary of how the US has profited by keeping Haiti in the economic shitter MORE THAN we would profit by assisting them in raising their standards of living (which makes them unable to buy our products, btw, which is what all capitalists want), and (2) evidence that the motivation for keeping them in the economic shitter was racism.

Without an answer to (1), you’re basically accusing “imperialists” of committing a crime with no motive (doesn’t work like that), and without any hard evidence of (2) you’re just blowing smoke.

Racism is not a casual accusation to be levied whenever the mood strikes. If you cannot document an accusation of racism, you’re more evil than the person you believe to be a racist.

Think about it.
