for the record: why Haiti matters

Screenshot:

I say “why Haiti matters” not because it’s conceivable that it couldn’t, but because given Haiti’s historical linkage to the United States, to its geographical vastness and globally superior economic latitude, Haiti must particularly matter, and for a long time.

This clip features a must view 1 minute and 50 seconds of history not known by most Americans and appropriately recited here by the U.S. Ambassador to Haiti, Raymond Joseph on the Rachel Maddow show in response to Rev. Pat Robertson’s insinuation on the 700 Club of Haiti’s deservedness of the current natural disaster.
