Oprah Winfrey Meeting with Haiti President Michel Martelly

Yes it is true, Oprah Winfrey is going to Haiti Sunday. On Monday Oprah will be hosted by Haitian President Michel Martelly.


Oprah Travel to Haiti

If you read my article about Oprah going to Haiti, I said "I really hope that Oprah can see the full potential of Haiti during her visit... I hope this is not just another 'Oh my God look at those poor people' visit..."

Well... Well... Check this out!

President Martelly said he would like to see Oprah Winfrey promote Haiti's lesser known attributes to outside investors, according to the Associated Press.

(Note to The Associated Press: I still don't understand why the hell you guys always attach 'impoverish' or 'troubled nation' to refer to Haiti in your freakin articles... STOP IT... The country's name is HAITI, her full name is The Republic of HAITI... Please take notice!)

Anyway... SHM...

According to troubled newspaper LOL, Martelly said:

"I am hoping she [Oprah] will serve as an ambassador for Haiti, to help us get the kind of assistance needed"

That's right, Mr President... Remind Oprah cherie that Haiti is open for business... Di-l vinn investi... Tell her we no longer want people to feel sorry for us and show us how sorry they are by ridding themselves of old clothes and old shoes they no longer want to wear. Tell Oprah what we need are the means to manufacture new chothes and new shoes for the world to wear...

Oprah is actually going to Haiti to visit the camp being run by actor Sean Penn. What she doesn't know is that she will fall in love with Haiti the minute she lands... It happens every time!

What do you think?

I for one totally agree with your comments, the people have to commit themselves to improve Haiti (Haitians in Haiti and abroad), but first the people need to be educated about politics or they will be duped again.

My wife and I have been in Haiti providing help for children and teens unable to go or continue their education, well as medical assistance to some from our own pockets while we watched countless politicians embezzle and steal national funds, diaspora's taking advantage of the weak and a totally corrupt Customs who regularly cheats everyone, EDH who cannot provide electricity, power is diverted to other locations for friends parties, cover for crime and generator fuel been sold for personal gain, water is routinely cut off during holidays, hotel owners are force to purchase water for the upkeep of their hotels.

You forgot to mention that we Haitians are the country's worst enemy.

If you want others to take you seriously, you would have to show that you are capable of accomplishing something.

The Haitian people can talk but they don't know how to walk. The disregard and denial of the poverty in Haiti has been misrepresented by us in Haiti and abroad.
